Where is County Donegal?

County Donegal, is a part of province of Ulster in Ireland. It is named after the town of Donegal. Donegal people maintain a distinct cultural and friendly identity. The county is the most mountainous in Ulster consisting chiefly of two ranges of low mountains; the Derryveagh Mountains in the north and the Bluestack Mountains in the south, with Mount Errigal at 749 metres (2,457 ft) the highest peak. It has a deeply indented coastline forming natural sea loughs, of which both Lough Swilly and Lough Foyle are the most notable. The Slieve League cliffs are the sixth-highest sea cliffs in Europe, while Malin Head is the most northerly point on the island of Ireland.

Donegal is breathtaking tourist attraction with misty mountains, serene lakes and dramatic coastlines - Fill your day with the diversity of a post brunch walk along a sandy beach followed by a visit to a Castle or visitor centre and a stop off at a craft shop along the way.

Tourist attraction/ Things to See in Donegal

There are many sandy beaches in the area of Donegal, such as Lisfannon and Murvagh beaches, and some boasting good surfing conditions, such as Rossnowlagh and Pollan Bay. Donegal is also used as a base for hill-walking in the nearby Urris and Bluestack Mountains. With its sandy beaches, unspoilt boglands and friendly communities, County Donegal is a favoured destination for many travellers, Irish (especially Northern Irish) and foreign alike. One of the county treasures is Glenveagh National Park (formerly part of the Glenveagh Estate), as yet (March 2012) the only official national park anywhere in the Province of Ulster. The park is a 140 km� (about 35,000 acre) nature reserve with spectacular scenery of mountains, raised boglands, lakes and woodlands. At its heart is Glenveagh Castle, a beautiful late Victorian 'folly' that was originally built as a summer residence.
