South West Donegal

Ireland Map
South West Donegal... It`s Different
The language, culture, history and relaxed lifestyle of a welcoming people distinguish dramatic land and seascapes. On a panoramic peninsula, west of Donegal Town, lie the three parishes of Ard a’ Rátha (Ardara), Cill Charthaigh (Kilcar) and Gleann Cholm Cille, vibrant communities where gifts and crafts are still handspun and handloomed in the very cradle of world-famous Donegal Tweed. Ask about the Weavers’ Fair before driving through the stunning Glengesh Pass or visit the lovely villages of Mín an Aoire, (Meenaneary), An Charraig, (Carrick) and Teileann (Teelin), near the towering cliffs of Sliabh Liag, one of Europe’s highest sea cliffs. Walk along “The One Man’s Pass” and visit the Gleann Cholm Cille Outdoor Activity Centre, the newly developed Golf Course, the Gleann Cholm Cille Folk Village or An Foras Cultúir Uladh (The Ulster Cultural Institute), a centre for studying the fiddle, the harp, the Irish Language, archaeology or painting.
