As the country moves on to the next stage of its remarkable response to the global pandemic, Donegal Tourism invites you to discover what’s on your doorstep. 

With summer is in full swing, there has never been a better time to explore the county and avail of a host of fantastic bargains that are now on offer.  From the immense outdoor spaces and local amenities that are once again accessible to the public, to the fantastic promotions that many hotels and tourism providers are now offering, it may be time to take the homeschooling outdoors or to brush up on your own local knowledge and history of our great county.

Cllr Rena Donaghey,  Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council stated “There is so much to explore without leaving Donegal – our amazing beaches, rugged coastlines, spectacular landscapes, historic sites and monuments, and welcoming offshore islands; not to mention our fantastic food and accommodation offerings. 

“In this unprecedented era of Zoom quizzes and social media challenges, perhaps it is time to set yourself the challenge of visiting some of the world class destinations that are closer than you think but were perhaps too close to consider, or to ask yourself if you have fully explored this amazing county surrounding you.”
