Travel Tips for Donegal

Donegal town & Donegal castle

by globetrott

The county of Donegal, in the very north-west of Ireland, is mostly overseen by lots of travellers, and in many cases they confuse the town of Donegal with the county of Donegal On my picture : Donegal castle - in the very centre of Donegal - town . You may enter the park around the castle freely and without restrictions during the day and only when you inted to see the castle-interior, you will have to pay a small amount of money.

A mixture of Celtic and catholic religion

by globetrott

Watch out for special, mystic places like this one : The person in that "coffin" is NOT a catholic saint, but a celtic water-god, whose sculpture was placed close to this small well and when you take a closer look at this mystic place dating back more than 1000 years you may see that the local people still come to this place today in order to pray for clean water and fertile farms and they pray to the celtic god, who is decorated by a catholic rosary.
I found this special place on the main road from Donegal to Glencombcille and it is almost half-covered by the much higher road.

Walk in Kilclooney Wood

by lee.evelyn

Just a few miles outside Glenties on the road to Dungloe there is a signpost on your left for "Bonny Glen" this is also known as Kilclooney Wood. A hidden lake amidst forest.
It takes about 20 minutes to walk around the lake.
I you feel like a longer walk, carry on straight ahead and you will pass a second smaller lake and come to a third one called Lough Namanlagh.

Doneygal Town

by Goner

"Fort of the Foreigner"

Donegal Town is located at the mouth of Donegal Bay in Northwest Ireland in the province of Ulster home of the McDonnell Clan who were the richest of the Irish ruling families until the 16th century. The McDonnels were known for chasing away the Vikings when they set up camp here in the 9th century.

Donegal is ‘Dun na nGall’ in Galeic which means "fort of the foreigner".

County Donegal faired the worst in Ulster during the Great Famine of the late 1840s, many of it's people emmigrated from the Port of Derry to America and other parts of the world.

"Donegal Today"

Donegal Town is now the largest village in the northwest of Ireland, with a population of about 3,000. It's always been known for its thriving wool trade, this trend continues as you will see local craftspeople and the articles they create and sell.

Tourists can enjoy golf and shopping. A trip to Donegal Craft Village gives visitors the opportunity to watch as crafts items are created and purchase the hand woven clothing, pottery and ceramics available for sale.
