    Slieve League and Bunglass Cliffs

    by ladyanne Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you love to walk, hike or climb you must take the time to visit the Slieve League Mountain and Bunglass Cliffs. Between Teelin and Meenavean on R263, you will see a sign. You must go through a gate that you have to open and close because it is part of a shepherd's sheep area. You will climb a steep road by car and come to a parking area. hopefully it is not too foggy or misty for the scenery is spectacular.

    Walk in Kilclooney Wood

    by lee.evelyn Written Mar 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Rathmullen & Ramelton, Lough Swilly, Donegal

    by ladyanne Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an area that is very easy to miss, and should be concidered when planning a visit to Donegal County.

    It is full of history and very lovely. Set apart by distance as is Inishowen Peninsula, this area is on the Fanad Peninsula just above Letterkenny.

    I enjoyed it very much.

  • Blue Stack Heaven

    by frac38 Written Jan 6, 2006

    Just 4.5 miles outside donegal town on the road to Letterkenny lies Lough ESKE. The lough is overlooked by the Blue Stack mountains. If you like to see breathtaking scenery you could do no better. The lough is well stocked with salmon and trout (permits available). On the far side of the lough lies Harveys Point which has good food (and Guiness ),where you can sit in comfort and take in the scenery.

    Rent a car, pick a direction and just go!

    by ZacharyB Written Sep 28, 2004

    It's easy and fun to get lost up here. A rental car was a must for us, and some of the best scenery we saw in Ireland we found by getting ourselves lost. Donegal is a great place to do this-- I suggest trying to find the remains of O"Boyle castle by car. That will get you out by the old embarkation point, where you can sit and watch local fisherman work the bay.
