Donegal Staycation Tours

Finally, tick County Donegal off your bucket list in 2021

Precious time has been missed with family. Grandparents are watching their grandchildren grow up over video calls. Lockdown birthdays, cancelled weddings and milestone celebrations postponed until further notice are the ‘new normal’.

When travel restrictions are lifted, 2021 is the year for safe staycations in your own private family groups. And whether you’ve never been to Donegal or were a regular visitor before lockdowns, there is something for everyone here in the NorthWest of Ireland.

Inishowen Peninsula

The most Northern point of the Wild Atlantic Way is Malin Head which was also the recent filming location for Star Wars VIII.

The 100 mile drive around the peninsula, (‘Inishowen 100’) offers scenic views of Lough Swilly to the West, including ‘Amazing Grace Country’, Lough Foyle to the East and the majestic Atlantic Ocean to the North, as well as many inland gems along the way.

A picnic style lunch option is advisable for flexibility and convenience on the Donegal day tour. Hampers of Donegal food produce can be arranged by your guide in advance, ensuring you get a real taste of Donegal.

Explore at your own pace

There are so many amazing activities and attractions in Inishowen for solo travellers, couples and families. Some of my favourites are best explored over a number of hours at your own pace. As such, I don’t typically include them in an Inishowen day tour when trying to visit a number of attractions on a time deadline. However, I highly recommend them on a self drive tour of Inishowen or as a bespoke variation of my itinerary suggestions above.
Go Visit Inishowen is a great resource for inspiration and advice on where to visit in Inishowen, Co. Donegal.
