Summer in Donegal

Summer in Donegal

With a personality that is both rugged and awe-inspiring, Donegal seems more like a country than a county.

With a personality that is both rugged and awe-inspiring, Donegal seems more like a country than a county. Isolated wild landscapes give way to soaring sea cliffs and deserted white sandy beaches.  Mount Errigal dominates the landscape of the far north-west of Donegal as it towers above the Poisoned Glen. To the north, the land sweeps down from Muckish towards Horn Head, Doe Castle and Sheephaven Bay. Donegal lets you to sit back, slow down, admire the view and recall a gentler pace of life – the perfect escape.
