Welcome to Donegal

Donegal Lighthouse

Wild and remote Malin Head on the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal marks the most northerly point of the entire island of Ireland. It sets the tone for the spirit of the county – independent, untamed and exciting, three quarters of its border formed by the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can experience this for themselves walking the towering cliffs of Sliabh Liag (Slieve League). Spectacular Glenveagh National Park & Castle is a true national treasure. The extensive 16,000 hectare park contains the largest herd of red deer in the country and the majestic Golden Eagle was reintroduced to Ireland in Glenveagh in 2001.

 

Donegal town itself is dominated by the 17th century Donegal Castle. Hand-woven Donegal Tweed is a unique cloth woven by hand on traditional wooden looms. Today, Magee’s Hand Weaving in Donegal town is the largest stockist of Donegal Tweed in the world.

 

No visit to Donegal is complete without a trip on Ireland’s largest waterbus. This spacious, fully equipped vessel offers daily 75 to 80 minute tours of Donegal Bay with its many islands and abundant wildlife. 

The tour includes a full commentary on the history and geography of Donegal Bay by our experienced and fully trained crew, combined with a sprinkling of Irish humour, which insures that passengers are kept both informed and entertained during the voyage. Highlights on the tour include a close encounter with Seal Island and its 200 strong seal colony and unparalleled views of the Bluestack Mountains and the gorgeous Donegal coastline. 

Live musical entertainment is provided on the homeward leg of each tour and there is even a dance floor for those who wish to ‘waltz on the water’. With easy access for all from the pier and plenty of parking on the quayside, this tour is ideal for old and young alike and is perfect for families, tour groups, and independent travellers.
