We will take a route along the coastline of the western shore of Lough Swilly with its huge maritime history and take the scenic drive towards Knockalla, Ballymastoker Beach (once voted the second most beautiful beach in the world), Portsalon, with views of the Inishowen hills as a backdrop. We will visit Fanad Head Lighthouse, once voted one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world. You will have a tour of the lighthouse and hear stories of lightkeepers in days gone by and if you wish, time permitting, climb to the top of the tower for the most spectacular views. We will continue with a scenic Atlantic drive from Fanad to the Rosguill Peninsula via the Harry Blaney Bridge. We will have a stop at Doe Castle which sits beautifully on a jutting rock, with the sea surrounding it on three sides. It's striking white tower is central to its legends of tragedy, romance, and ghosts. A guided tour here is optional. We will return to the hotel in time for dinner. (D,B&B)
 
Tuesday 15 August 2023
This morning, after breakfast, we will depart the hotel and make our way to the beautiful Glenveagh National Park. The hauntingly beautiful Glenveagh Castle was built in the 1870s by the Adair family. Surrounded by the famous Glenveagh Gardens, its construction in a remote mountain setting was inspired by the Victorian idyll of a romantic highland retreat. You will have a guided tour of the Castle after which you will have plenty of time after to enjoy a stroll in the Walled Gardens – and experience not to be missed. You will also be able to have lunch in the tea rooms before we depart and make our way back to Letterkenny where you can have the rest of the afternoon free to explore the town or just relax and enjoy some of the leisure facilities on offer in the hotel before dinner. (D, B&B)
 
Wednesday 16 August 2023
Today we will depart the hotel and make our way to Donegal town where you can have some free time to explore. You might like to visit the Castle (entrance not included) and the famous Magee’s of Donegal, selling luxury menswear, womenswear and accessories. The store also has a Gift Department and Food Hall, The Weaver’s Loft Café, plus clothing and footwear concessions. You might like to have an early lunch here before we depart Donegal Town at approximately 13.00hrs and continue our tour of the South West visiting Killybegs, a natural harbour and the largest fishing port in Ireland, where you will see many fishing boats in the port from all over the world. We will also visit Glencolumbkille including a visit to the Folk Village Museum. This thatched-roof replica of a rural village offers a glimpse into daily life as it was during past centuries. Designed, built and maintained by the local people, the Folk Village is one of Ireland's best living-history museums. We will continue on to Ardara (via the Glengesh Pass) and Fintown and back to Letterkenny. Return to the hotel for dinner. (D,B&B)
