Whether your idea of holiday heaven is a lazy day on a beach, rambling over rugged hills or swinging your irons on a velvet green, Donegal is packed to the brim with outdoor fun. Enjoy year-round scuba diving. Learn how to surf. Walk exhilarating coastal trails around the truly staggering Cliffs of Slieve League. And don't miss the stunning beaches and dramatic rocks of Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point.
Family outings and other attractions in County Donegal…
Hop aboard the waterbus and tour historic Donegal Town. Or what about a sea safari around Donegal Bay, encounters with wildlife guaranteed? Let children run wild at Ards Forest Park, with its woodlands, rivers, sandy beaches and play areas. Wander the glorious gardens of Ardnamona. Book a guided tour of Donegal Castle. Watch out for the Golden Eagle at Glenveagh National Park. Add museums, folk villages, stone circles…they're all here.
Time your Donegal cottage holiday right and you might catch the Earagail Arts Festival, usually held in July and showcasing all sorts of theatre, comedy, family events, exhibitions and workshops all over the county.
Another wonderful thing about Donegal - and therefore another reason to book a Donegal holiday home - is to sample the superb food and drink. Think sensational seafood platters and atmospheric pubs. Enjoy!
