Life in Donegal

Fintragh Bay1ATU Donegal is set in one of the most breathtaking corners of Ireland. We’re lucky enough to call it home. So can you.

There is a reason why Donegal was named the coolest place on the planet by the National Geographic in 2017. County Donegal is truly beautiful with spectacular mountains, coastline and beaches, rivers and lakes, Glenveagh National Park etc. All of this provides endless opportunities for a wide range of outdoor activities. There’s definitely something for everyone who loves the great outdoors – from sailing to hillwalking, from surfing, to deep-sea diving, from a gallop on a beach to a gentle walk. 

Fanad Head LighthouseThe Clubs & Societies are there to help you make the most of it all – and at minimal cost.
