Around Letterkenny Ballybofey
With a stunning array of majestic mountains, hidden glens, beautiful lakes and some of Europe's finest beaches, Donegal's scenery is spectacular. Here, in Ireland's most northerly county the Gaelic culture and language not only survives, but thrives in the gaeltacht regions. And at night, the bars resound to the sound of traditional music and laughter. Standing 253 metres above sea level, the Grianan of Aileach circular stone fort offers breathtaking views across the Inishowen Peninsula, the most northerly point in Ireland. Here you will find a coastline that combines soft sandy beaches with stunning rugged scenery - a landscape dotted with many tourist amenities suitable for all the family. At 725 metres, Errigal Mountain is one of the highest in Ireland, and Glenvagh National Park attracts 100,000 visitors a year to its magnificent castle and vast acreage of protected wilderness. Donegal is noted not only for its natural wonders, but also for its tweed, basket making, world famous Aran sweaters and its delicate Parian China.
