Nestled in Ireland’s north-west, snuggled between the Northern Ireland border and the Atlantic Ocean, County Donegal is a truly spectacular corner of the Emerald Isle.
If you’re looking for outdoor adventure and jaw-dropping scenery, you won’t be disappointed with the holidays in County Donegal we have to offer.
Glenveagh National Park, in the heart of the county, is a wondrous place to begin exploring its delights. Here, you’ll find beautiful hiking and cycling spots, plus breath-taking views across Lough Beagh, with the imposing 19th century Glenveagh Castle nestled on its banks.
Nearby, keen hikers will also want to pay a visit to the dramatic Mount Errigal, the tallest peak in the Derryveagh Mountains and County Donegal as a whole. Over on the Atlantic Coast, Slieve League boasts some of the highest sea cliffs on the Emerald Isle, providing truly mesmeric views of the surrounding countryside and out across the water.
If coastal retreats are your thing, Northern Ireland has plenty of breath-taking options with beach holidays in County Donegal. South of Slieve League is the sandy Rossnowlagh Beach while to the north you’ll find the ominously named Murder Hole Beach, which is infinitely more beautiful than it sounds.
Elsewhere, there are also plenty of attractions to visit during family holidays in County Donegal. Doagh Famine Village is a fascinating place to learn more about a key era in Irish history, with tours through original 1800s buildings. To the south, Donegal Castle is another impressive historical location, while in the town of Letterkenny, both Donegal County Museum and Tropical World zoo are excellent places for days out.
