Skirting the town is the impressive 8th century High Cross on the grounds of a church founded by St Patrick for the Bishop of Clogher’s brother. It is considered one of the most important early-Christian remains in all of Britain and Ireland. The history doesn’t stop there, as a church bell is believed to have arrived following the Spanish Armada shipwreck at Kinnagoe Bay in 1588.
As with so much of Donegal, the town isn’t far from some of Ireland’s best golf courses, with the 36-hole championship Ballyliffin Golf Club only a short drive away. A recommended hill walk is on Slieve Sneacht and when that’s done, mix with the locals in one of the towns well known pubs.
Donegal is where you’ll find the longest mainland shoreline in the country, along with Ireland’s largest Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) area, its most northerly point (at Malin Head) and a proud sense of community inspired by the wild, virtually unexplored terrain at its doorstep.
Rugged yet inviting, Donegal’s Malin Head is steeped in history and offers activities such as walking, fishing, swimming and bird watching. Here, north of Trawbreaga Bay, you can view Five Finger Strand, home to some of Europe’s largest sand dunes. At low tide, you can even spot the wreckage of the ‘Twilight’, which sank in 1889 while sailing to Derry. For more history, follow the coast road. You’ll pass the old radio station, built in 1910, and The Tower, a derelict signal station located on Banba’s Crown, the most northerly point in Ireland. It’s the perfect place to relax with a picnic, as the stunning panorama includes Inistrahull and Tory islands, as well as the Scottish hills on a clear day.

If treasure hunting is more your speed, head east to Ballyhillion beach, which dates back to the ice age and is known for its many semi-precious stones.
