For those of you not familiar with Donegal, or for those who haven’t visited the place in a while, Glenveagh Castle is a must-see, (check out the reviews on TripAdvisor). It’s described as a remote and hauntingly beautiful wilderness in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains and one of the best ways to experience its beauty is to walk The Bridle Path, pictured below. Bike rentals are also a good option and local company Grassroutes has everything you need to make it happen.

Donegal Lighthouse Makes Top Ten

It’s great to see Donegal’s Fanad Lighthouse on this list of the world’s most beautiful lighthouses. We’re excited by its upcoming renovation and plans for a coffee and craft shop and look forward to the day that this impressive structure is open to the public. It’s exactly the kind of development required to boost tourism in the county.
