About this listing

County Donegal is located in the north east of Ireland. So far north, that Donegal is home to Malin Head, the most northern tip of the Irish mainland. Its Gaelic name ‘Dún na nGall' translates as “fort of the foreigners", suggesting much of Donegal's unique spirit. The county's motto, "Up here it's different", captures its distinctiveness, and distance from cosmopolitan Dublin. Donegal's isolation from the rest of Ireland has left it with a mystery and wildness unlike anywhere else. This wildness has shaped its history. Donegal's rocky and erratic landscape helped it to resist British invasion longer than other parts of Ireland. Blanketed in bog and heather, travelling through Donegal feels like a trip to the real Ireland. A four-hour drive from the capital, Donegal easily repays the journey. With castles, cottages and 300 miles of coastline, it is a special place its visitors truly never forget.

The local area is an ideal location for a holiday involving country walks and healthy pursuits or if you just want to be close to all the sights of northern Ireland where you can indulge in your passion for good food and great wine. Maybe you will hear a few words of Irish spoken along the way in Donegal's Gaeltacht (Irish speaking regions) or Sligo .
In Ireland we pride ourselves on our welcome ( " a stranger is just a friend we have yet to meet " ) and if I had one piece of advice for anyone planning a trip to Donegal or Ireland it would be to take your time . While my country is lovely it is the people you meet along the way who will make your trip forever memorable .....
