Sliabh Liag Peninsula

Donegal Town & Killybegs

The Tour starts in Donegal Town. We will pick you up at the Donegal Tourist Information Centre and from there we will travel along the WAW to the historical town of Killybegs now Ireland’s premier fishing port, where there is often an opportunity to see fishermen working on the pier.

We then continue along the coast to witness the amazing views and learn how we lived and adapted to the elements along the wild Atlantic coast.

Sliabh Liag Viewing Point

Our journey takes us along the WAW where we visit the stunning Sliabh Liag cliffs from the viewing point at Bunglas. The highest accessible sea cliffs in Europe are steeped in history and folklore, and a venture up the mountain is often described as a spiritual experience.

Malinbeg Glencolmcille (Silver Strand)

The Silver strand discovery point Malinbeg Glencolmcille, with its horseshoe shaped cliffs and over 160 steps that take you down to the beautiful beach below.

Glencolumbkille Folk Museum

Glencolmcille Folk Museum , which attracts thousands of visitors each year, was the initiative of Father James McDyer. It opened in 1967 with three cottages and has grown into a fantastic living museum. During your visit you will have a chance to experience life in Donegal as it was. There will also be an opportunity to sample their delicious soup and brown bread.

Handcrafts

Donegal is world renowned for its unique and high quality handcrafts and knitwear. Our stopovers can include watching skilled weavers producing their stunning handwoven textiles on authentic hand looms.

Cloghanmore Megalithic Tomb

It is not every day that you will get the chance to walk around a 5600 year old burial site , but with Donegal Scenic Travel you will do just that!

There are many more stops with most of our time spent outside rather than inside the minibus. As the weather in Donegal can be unpredictable we advise tourists to wear/carry suitable footwear and rainwear.

Refreshments at reasonable prices will be available to purchase en route.

Paul was an absolutely delightful guide.

He shared so much history with us about the area and even went out of the way to drive us through the village my Great Grandparents were from (Mountcharles).

We will surely refer our friends to him and can not wait to visit again ourselves with family in the near future!
