Clonmany is a village in north-west Inishowen, in County Donegal, Ireland. On the 19th (Fri), contemplate the long history of Doagh Famine Village, then stroll through Wild Atlantic Adventure Centre, then cruise along Mamore Gap, and finally admire the sheer force of Glenevin Waterfall. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll around Swan Park, explore the ancient world of Grianan Of Aileach, get lost in a book at Free Wee Library, then make a trip to Malin Head, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wee House at Malin.

Plan my Clonmany trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
