Where to stay in County Donegal

Whether you stay in rural lodging or at the center of one of the region's larger towns, you will be able to experience the unspoiled natural beauty of County Donegal. Consider staying in the northernmost region of Ireland's tourist center, Donegal Town, which has a number of hotels, hostels, and more homey alternatives. Larger towns like Donegal or Letterkenny have the most accommodation options, but smaller villages like Ballyshannon, Kincasslagh, and Buncrana can also make good bases for exploring the countryside or coast. For a true Irish experience, opt for the personal touch of a bed and breakfast.
