O'Donnell's County
Encompassing nearly a fifth of the country's coastline, County Donegal remains one of Ireland's wildest regions. Despite its large size, the county houses just over 150,000 residents spread across a landscape of low mountains and natural sea loughs. A bastion of Gaelic culture, the region maintains a distinct cultural identity and a fierce spirit of independence, exemplified by the popular saying "Up here it's different." A place of extremes, County Donegal features a rugged interior and an even rockier coastline, boasting some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe. Still relatively undiscovered by foreign travelers, this region offers you a chance to discover a quieter side of Ireland largely untouched by commercialization and mass tourism.
