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.
