Resort Information

One of the most popular towns in Ireland's north, with a host of modern facilities, Letterkenny in County Donegal is an ideal base for exploring this lovely area. Dominated by the vast cathedral of Saints Eunan and Colomba, the town lies just north of the River Swilly, and a short distance from beautiful Lough Swilly.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Belfast, meet your tour manager and transfer to your hotel. Depending on your arrival time, you'll be able to spend the rest of the day exploring the town of Letterkenny or relaxing in a pub or cafe.

Day Two

Today we'll head to Donegal, where a rich history is reflected in an imposing Jacobean castle and an ancient marketplace, the 'Diamond'. Wander the streets, or take a 70-minute waterbus trip (payable locally) around Donegal Bay, before we return to our hotel.

Day Three

This morning we'll reach the windswept coast of County Antrim for our visit to the Giant's Causeway. Long associated with legendary Irish hero Finn McCool, its basalt columns, which rise like stepping stones from the Atlantic, were in fact formed after a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. Take the minibus from the visitor centre to the Causeway, or walk the mile or so along the cliff path and marvel at the breathtaking views.

After time for lunch (payable locally), we'll continue to Dunluce Castle, one of the most extensive ruins of a medieval castle in Northern Ireland, rising dramatically from the rocks above the wild sea. Explore this stunning place before we return to Letterkenny.

Day Four

The stunning Inishowen Peninsula is home to Ireland's most northerly point, Malin Head. Visit the Doagh Isle Famine Village, where 19th-century Irish life is recreated, before continuing through the remote peninsula town of Carndonagh to see wild, windswept Malin. You'll return this evening to Letterkenny.

Day Five

Today, admire the contrasting scenery of rugged, remote Glenveagh National Park and Glenveagh Castle, in its peaceful setting overlooking Lough Veagh. Enjoy a guided tour of the historic castle, with its turrets, round keep and spectacular gardens.

We'll continue to the coastline, via Mount Errigal and through Dunlewy village to Bunbeg, where, weather permitting, you may like a short stroll on the beautiful beach. Then it's up and around the Bloody Foreland, named for the red hue of the rocks at sunset, to the little village of Gortahawk and back to Letterkenny.

Day Six

Transfer back to Belfast for your flight home, taking with you some wonderful memories of this very special part of the world.

The tour was great. Bus driver was excellent. Tour manager was not spontaneous, everything was read from notes and then repeated at site. She also did not assign seats which caused some stress all through tour.

Atherstone Friends
I thought Letterkenny was a poor place to have as a base. We arrived at 3pm and didn't have anything planned until 12md the next day! We could have had a whole day visiting Donegal town instead of a short day. There is nothing to do or see in Letterkenny except the cathedral so it was wasted time.

Quite a lot of 2 and 3 hour journeys on the coach, again more wasted time. It would have been better to do a tour.

Thank you.

Interesting visit to northern part of Ireland. Did not realise that only one day was in Northern Ireland when we went to the Giant's Causeway. Did not get our evening meal until 9 pm on arrival because of late plane arrival of part of our group - the travel arrangements should be investigated.
