Monday 3rd to Thursday 6th July Donegal and Derry

 

This is a 4 day tour to Irelands North West

 

There is a saying in Donegal which states “up here it’s different” and it is very true.

County Donegal is the 4th largest County in Ireland after Cork, Galway and Mayo.

With its rugged coastline lashed by the Atlantic Ocean, Donegal is called the wild child of Ireland.

During our stay in Donegal Town we will visit many of Donegal’s beauty spots including Killybegs which is the largest fishing port in Ireland.

We will view the fishing trawlers docked in the port and we will visit St Catherine’s Holy Well in the town.

Another Holy Well of importance that we will visit is St Patrick’s Well in Ballyshannon town where people come to pray all year round. Ballyshannon lays claim to be the oldest town in Ireland.

We will pass through Barnesmore Gap in the Blue Stack Mountains.

This very fine Mountain Pass is the most outstanding feature of the Blue Stack Mountain range.

After passing through Barnesmore we will head north to Donegal’s largest town the Cathedral town of Letterkenny, after spending time in Letterkenny we will return to Donegal to relax before dinner.

We will visit many other places of note in Donegal also.

We will also visit the walled City of Derry with a population of approx. 90,000 slightly more than Galway City.

Derry is a very ancient City, the walls of Derry reflect its status as one of the best preserved walled Cities in Europe, Derry of course perhaps suffered more than anywhere else in Ireland during the three decades of strife before the Good Friday agreement was signed.

We will engage a local tour guide for our tour of Derry City as our own guide John Candy would not be familiar enough with the history of this ancient City in order to give an informed and detailed tour of this lovely place.

 

Lots more on the day of our.

 

We will be staying in the lovely Central Hotel in Donegal town.
