It comes as no surprise that County Donegal has been listed as one of the Best Regions in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2024!

Remote, wild and rugged, Donegal is a place like no other in Ireland. Home to some of the most spectacular scenery the country has to offer, the country’s northernmost county is a must when visiting Ireland. Home to the most spectacular landscapes,  including the highest sea cliffs in Europe, the Slieve League cliffs, it boasts an abundance of beaches along its 1,134 km coastline.

One of the most eye-catching lighthouses in the world is located in County Donegal, Fanad Head Lighthouse. Perched on a rocky cliff-edge, the lighthouse has guided sailors to Ireland since 1817.

There are many activities available the county including surfing in Bundoran, hiking the Slieve League Cliffs or a visit to Irelands most northerly point, Malin Head. After a day of adventuring around the headland, be sure to stop into Farran’s Bar, Ireland’s most northerly for a well-earned pint.

Famed for its hospitality there are many options for a relaxed visit including a stay at the 5-star Lough Eske Castle. Lough Eske Castle has a long history which is wrapped in the story of County Donegal and Ireland. Always a place for entertaining international guests since 1861, Lough Eske Castle remains full of warm Donegal hospitality today as it did over 150 years ago. A 5-star luxury castle, Lough Eske Castle offers a selection of 97 magnificent 5 star rooms and suites that will make choosing accommodation in County Donegal easy. Each room complements the restoration of the castle and is sensitive to its history and location, making for superior castle accommodation in Ireland. Maximum use is made of natural light, natural materials and fabrics so that guests, while cocooned in luxury, never feel far removed from the landscape around them.
