Donegal is a magical place, different from the
rest of the Republic and, in many ways, closer to Scotland than
Ireland. It has some of the country's most dramatic scenery, a
particular music tradition, a distinctive accent and a friendly
welcome. We start our tour by heading out from Donegal along the
coastline towards the Slieve League Marine Cliffs on our way to
the first nights stop, the Irish speaking village of Glencolmcille.
Over the week we keep to quiet backroads passing some of Ireland’s
most wonderful coastal scenery. Dramatic mountains fall into the
Atlantic interspersed with unspoiled beaches. We continue through
a rolling landscape of sleepy villages, then through Glenveigh,
Ireland’s largest National Park. Our rest day is in the seaside
village of Dunfanaghy. We continue our journey to the bustling
town of Letterkenny, then wind our way back to Donegal town. The
trip begins and ends in Donegal.
