Its rugged setting and friendly locals make Donegal a popular destination along Ireland's coast.
Get out of town with these interesting Donegal Town side-trips: Donegal Airsoft (in Newtown Cunningham), Mamore Gap (in Clonmany) and Poison Glen (in Gweedore). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Donegal Castle, explore the ancient world of Grianan Of Aileach, make a trip to Lough Eske, and contemplate the long history of Doagh Famine village.
