What a place if you like scenery, empty beaches, friendly people and good craic! Plenty of houses to rent too.
There are many places of interest and it's easy too to get across by ferry to visit places such as the Giant's Causeway and Ballycastle. But hurry as there's talk of a big hotel being built near Clonmany and all this might change.

Originally Ireland's flagship youth hostel, it's a little tatty these days and definitely no frills. But it has loads of character and a fantastic view, and at 14 euros a night a perfect base to explore the area settled by St Columb in the 6th century, and the Slieve League - at 600m, Europe's highest sea cliffs.
In the town of Glencolumbcille, take the road beside the Glenhead tavern and it's 1.5km up the road on the left - 973 0130
Donegal has the most spectacular landscape in the country. It is not as "touristy" as the likes of Kerry and Cork. It is fantastic for beaches - there are too many great beaches to list. The county is a hill walkers paradise. Climb Slieve League in the south west of the county or Mount Errigal in the north. The people are very friendly. Think of Dublin as being a parallel universe to this place - people take their time here to talk to one another. Tourists are generally treated with courtesy.
