Donegal’s Wild Atlantic Gems

Experience 100 of the most enthralling places to visit, stay and eat on the best part of Ireland's world famous coastal drive.

In association with the award-winning Village Tavern seafood bar in Mountcharles, sample the magnificence of the longest coast in Ireland – Donegal is the best place to go for surfing, hillwalking, angling, Northern Lights-spotting, fresh seafood and authentic trad music. With the new Aer Lingus service to Donegal, getting to the county just became that little bit easier in 2016.

Find them all over several days with our handy guide which more or less follows the Wild Atlantic Way initiative by Failte Ireland. If you want a proper Irish getaway, they don’t come any better than to this beautiful part of the world. We have included accommodation and restaurants – the places to stay range from glamping in Creeslough to luxury accommodation at Castle Murray House and all of the restaurants are highly regarded/award-winning, so you won’t be disappointed. Simply ‘favourite’ the ones you like the sound of by clicking on the star icon in the top right hand corner of each Point of Interest (POI) page.

All notable points on Failte Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way brochure are mentioned throughout our guide. A simple way to note the various acronyms you will see beside each POI in this guide is as follows: –

Discovery Point = DP

North West Secret = NWS

Signature Discovery Point = SDP

Wild Atlantic Ambassador = WAA

Of course, we have added our own very special points of interest along the way – with just short of 100 places listed, we believe we have brought you a formidable list of places to go to along the Donegal coast.
