More information on:

Dungloe is known locally as the Capital of the Rosses, its Irish name \'An Clochán Liath\' (Grey Stone), has its origins in the period before the construction of the Dungloe Bridge in 1762. Prior to this date, entry to the town was by means of stepping-stone across the river.

Dungloe is an ideal touring base from which to explore the west coast of Donegal. One of the main reasons why people come to this area is its fame as a great place for fishing due in no small measure to the work of the Rosses Angling Association. With 130 lakes, the visiting angler can enjoy the superb fishing for salmon, trout and sea trout. The wild bog and reed beds area haven for wildlife and the views of the bay, particularly the cliff views from the Golf Club South to Arranmore, are memorable.

Also the home of the Mary from Dungloe Festival, which takes place each Summer attracting people from all over Ireland and indeed from all over the world.
