Donegal Ireland Travel Guide

Donegal is a nature lover's paradise. With jagged coastlines where waves crash furiously along craggy cliffs, with lush greenery as far as the eye can see, and with some of the most isolated landscapes in Ireland, this is one of the most remote places in the country.

Things to Do in Donegal Ireland

Travel out to Glenveagh Natural Park and tread through the valleys and the Derryveagh Mountains. The area was voted as being one of the world's best travel destinations by National Geographic and it's easy to see why.

For old fashioned Irish charm, stop by a traditional tavern for a beer and a pie in the quaint nearby villages such as Glencolmcille.
