A major fishing port which is renowned throughout the world for its fish. Also famous for its tapestries and carpets. 
A 5 min drive from Killybegs on route to Sliabh Liag. This is a beautiful place a stunning site of natural beauty, but please be careful, you need to have the proper walking footwear as you will be walking on extremely slippy rock and only visit if you understand the tide times!
Take a left towards Kilcar, another beautiful place, best know for its stunning scenery twin beaches and sea cliffs, popular for rock climbers!
One we have done so many times and always see something new and amazing, every time. Known as one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe, just ______ Kilometers from here. There is no doubt that it is one of the most magnificent views in Ireland. just breathtaking, the stunning series of mountains and cliffs at Slieve League soar into the sky, especially on a clear day. One mans path is a must, but not for the faint hearted. Also guided tours are available but must be booked in advance. 

 On the way you can stop at:

St Johns Point: Experience sheer coastal Atlantic beauty, flora, fauna and unique geology with distinctive geological rock formations beyond the lighthouse!

After Slieve League, you can continue on route to...

Its worth the drive, stunningly secluded bay, one of my most favourite spots for a swim after the 174 steps down to the beach. Most beautiful for sunrise or sunset.
Replica of typical Irish rural village, showcasing the heritage culture and ingenuity of the local population
Pause and admire it from the top (enjoy an icecream here in the summer months!) before taking the windy road through the valley! Breathtaking!

Near the village of Ardara, close to the roadside so you don’t have to leave your car. Just nature at its best!

Day Trip Two

Magalithic tombs and mystical links as far back as Finn McCool.

Some stops you might like to do on the way!

Just 10min drive off to right as you head on the main road towards Ballyshannon, another beautiful setting, especially when the waves are crashing against the rocks at the pier. A favourite spot for ourselves, jumping off the pier at full tide or taking the kayaks out.

Creevy Pier cliff walk takes about 1 hour 30 min. This trail takes you along the stunning coastline on clifftop path (includes uneven surface, soft ground, loose stone and cattle in the fields)
Bundoran is known for its great surfing location, Rougey walk, funfairs and amusements.(Rougey walk takes about 50min, just turn right at KFC. Also you visit the Fairy bridge on route)

The coastal walk/drive is absolutely stunning and you can see Classiebawn Castle (The home of Lord Mountbatten and his family) on the way. On a clear day you will be able to enjoy views of Donegal Bay and Slieve League as well as back towards Benbulben. Ethnas by the Sea is a lovely place to stop for a bite to eat and well known for its incredible seafood!
This is a six-mile (10km) loop of single lane road surrounded by spectacular mountain views. Its about an hour by car, not counting the stops for photos on the way! For the more adventurous you can climb Benwiskin!
Very impressive, especially after heavy rainfall. (Mentioned in WB Yates poem “The Stolen Child” There is a car park, public toilets and tea room here.
Visit WB Yates grave in Drumcliffe Cemetery. The headstone is inscribed with the poets famous self permel epitaph “cast a cold eye on life, on death, horseman pass by”.

Set in a small Gaeltacht village, at the foot of mount Errigal and on the shore of Dunlewey Lough. Take a step back in time and enjoy the boat trip on the lough.
This is a beautifully restored 1902 stone building with loads of history, formerly factory where the world famous crolly doll was produces and now houses the first licensed whiskey distillery in Donegal.
