					Donegal is located along the rugged Blue Stack Way where it offers a warm welcome
to hikers and walkers of all ages. This simple and rural area offers most of the
sightseeing experience you will ever come across in Ireland. From the rugged
way-marked trails, enchanting coastal paths, looped walks overlooking dramatic cliffs
to routes that follow quiet mountain trails and country lanes, the visitor will be awed
with what spectacular landmarks nature can produce.

Donegal is a favorite destination for many tourists on holiday in Ireland. The area has
many attractions and historic towns; most of them along the Atlantic Ocean. One of
such places is the Downings area. Here, a holiday visitor can partake in many pleasant
activities including walking along the beach, golfing, equestrian games, angling and
swimming. The place has a GAA club where you can even learn how to play football.

If you want something more active for the holiday, you can take part in the annual
windsurfing and raft racing competition. For something more cultural, why not stay
with the locals to learn Irish or study how to prepare their local food.

Despite its rural setting, Donegal has many top class hotels with four hotels been
situated on the Rosgoill peninsula. You can also get about 300 holiday homes in the
immediate area. Most of these homes are quite historical - they were built several
years ago and have the look of rustic Ireland. This style of accommodation will make
a good stay for someone interested in Irish culture.

Tourists who visit Donegal on holiday never miss the picturesque Lough Eske, the
3km Bank Walk around Donegal Bay or Donegal Town's Historic Town Trail which
includes Donegal Castle, the Diamond Square and a Napoleonic anchor retrieved
from the sea in the 1850s.

For the adventurous holiday maker, you can travel far to the remote peaks of the
Bluestack Mountain. Though you have to be versatile in navigation to traverse these
areas, it will be quite challenging to try to pass through unaided.

You can round off your trip with a visit to the Glenveagh National Park which has
16,958 hectares of mountain, bogs, lakes and woods. The park enclosed the
spectacular valley of Glenveagh and Donegal's two highest mountains, Errigal and
Slieve Snacht, as well as many other fine hills, notably Dooish and Leahanmore.

Donegal permits the traveler to see Ireland in most rustic form. From the treacherous
trails to the lonely mountain peaks, one will leave the county with nothing but
exhilarating experiences.
