Donegal

county donegalCounty Donegal with its rich natural amenities and unique quality of life is Ireland's most northerly county. Donegal shares a border with only one other county in the Republic of Ireland, County Leitrim. It is bordered on the remaining sides with the Northern Irish counties of Tyrone, Derry and Fermanagh.

The Irish language and culture are vibrant in the extensive Gaeltacht areas from Fanad Head to Slieve League.

Visitors to Donegal have the unrivalled opportunity to enjoy a quiet, leisurely stroll along country roads, go hill-walking on magnificent mountainous terrain, or just simply relax on a beautiful blue flag beach. There is no end to its wild landscapes, immense deserted beaches and rugged mountains.
