Tucked away in Ireland’s northwest, Donegal is a land of breathtaking natural beauty with a rugged coastline shaped over the years by the mighty Atlantic  Ocean. There are spectacular mountains, majestic rivers and crystal-clear lakes, and a rich heritage where Gaelic language and culture still prevails.
