Donegal Town

4.1
Its rugged setting and friendly locals make Donegal a popular destination along Ireland's coast. Explore its scenic harbor, popular beaches, and stone remnants that speak to the area's history, including the famous abbey. Though the town's restored Gaelic castle draws many visitors here, its vibrant streets are equally appealing. Visit the pubs and cafes of the town's historical center, called The Diamond, which is a haven for artists, musicians, and poets.
