About the location


Donegal Town 16 miles; Letterkenny 18 miles.

Located through Barnesmore Gap in the heart of County Donegal and resting on the banks of the River Finn, Ballybofey is often mentioned in the same breath as its ‘twin town,’ Stranorlar, with the two towns separated by a small bridge across the River Finn. The river is noted for its quality trout and salmon fishing with a number of other fisheries dotting the area. The town has much to offer with a good selection of shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs, a theatre, an 18-hole golf course and regular traditional music and other nightlife in the evenings. Walkers will enjoy exploring the local woodlands or the shore walk around Lough Trusk, while the 47km-long Bluestack Way, which meanders through the mountains of the same name, is also accessible.
