  • Slieve League Cliffs: If you fancy a journey to the edge and back, then the Slieve League cliffs are a must see. Although less famous than the Cliffs of Moher, Slieve League's cliffs reach almost three times higher (601m), and are some of the highest and finest marine cliffs in Europe. A nearby visitor centre can provide you with information and history on the area, as well as local food and guided tours of the cliffs.

  • Glenveagh National Park: A perfect place to start your adventure in Donegal, Glenveagh is the second largest national park in Ireland, containing some 16,540 hectares of mountains, lakes, glens and woods, with the largest herd of red deer in the country. At the centre of the Park is Glenveagh Castle, a late 19th century castellated mansion, built at the edge of Lough Veagh. Tours of the castle and gardens are available, and maps are obtainable on site for exploring the more remote and beautiful areas of the park.

  • Grianán of Aileach: This spectacular stone hillfort on top of Greenan Mountain is steeped in history and has some spectacular views of Lough Foyle, Lough Swilly, and the entirety of the Inishowen peninsula. The stone fort is believed to have been constructed during the 8th or 9th century as the seat of the ancient Kingdom of Aileach. After centuries of neglect the stone fort, measuring 5m in height and approximately 4m in thickness, was restored in the 1870's and in 2001. Each year, a Summer Solstice Celebration is held at the fort to celebrate the longest day of the year.

  • Bundoran: The most southerly town in Donegal, and a popular seaside resort since the 18th century, Bundoran has become known as Ireland’s surfing capital in recent years. Local historical attractions include the Fairy Bridges and the Wishing Chair. There are plenty of other water sports and outdoor activities for the whole family, including angling, golfing and kayaking. Bundoran Adventure Park and Waterworld are also full of activities for kids and big kids alike.

Other activities such as walking, fishing, swimming and bird watching are also popular here. If you are brave enough to travel there at night time you might even be lucky enough to catch a stellar display from the Northern Lights.

  • Doagh Famine Village: This outdoor museum tells the story of Irish life from the Great Famine to the present day. What makes Doagh Famine Village unique is the combination of informative story telling from passionate local guides and life size exhibits, which provides an informative, thought-provoking look at Irish life. Attractions include original thatched Irish cottages from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, an Eviction Scene, Orange Hall, Republican Safe House and Irish Wake Scene amongst others.
