DISCOVER THE DIAMOND OF DONEGAL

Donegal is the main town of County Donegal, the Republic of Ireland’s northernmost county. Sitting at the mouth of the River Eske, the town dates back to the 15th century.

Visit Donegal and you’ll find a charming place with a long harbour and beaches. You’ll also find historic sites to explore, where you can learn about Irish and regional history.

The city centre, often called ‘The Diamond’, thrives with cultural events, music, and pubs. Here you’ll also find the Donegal Railway Heritage Centre, housed in the old station house.

A highlight of visiting Donegal is the ruins of the 15th-century Donegal Franciscan Abbey. This lies along the riverside, and you can roam around the tombs and structure remnants here. It is apparently one of the oldest graveyards in the country.

Donegal is also an ideal base to visit the greater area and investigate the north of Ireland’s stunning coast. Immerse yourself in the activities available to locals and visitors alike.

You can golf, fish and go for horseback riding, among many other activities. Donegal Bay is also a popular spot for wildlife watching as it is home to a seal colony.
