St Patrick's Day

St Patrick was born second half of 4th century, most likely in Scotland or Wales.  He is known as the ‘Apostle of Ireland’, our primary patron saint of Ireland along with St Bridgid of Kildare.  Early medieval tradition credits him with being the first bishop of Armagh and Primate of Ireland and the founder of Christianity in Ireland.

Donegal tops the "Cool List" to visit in 2017 by National Geographic Traveller Magazine

Donegal has topped a list of must-see destinations around the world for next year.

The list, compiled by National Geographic Traveller magazine, highlights 17 destinations.

However, Donegal's "weather-nibbled coast" with Blue Flag beaches and offshore islands helped it reach the top spot on the 'Cool List'.

The magazine also recommends surfing at Magheroarty and coastal drives along the Wild Atlantic Way.

The county also received a tourism boost last summer when Star Wars: Episode VIII was filmed on the Inishowen Peninsula.

 

New York has Time Square. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. London has Big Ben. But, Donegal in the Northwest of Ireland has

the Wild Atlantic Way with some of the most spectacular scenery in Ireland.   Spend your annual holidays or a long weekend in Donegal and enjoy the magnificent splendour of Slieve League in the South of the County and the towering majesty of Mount Errigal in Gweedore.
