County Donegal in Northern Ireland is characterised by winding country roads which are surrounded by remote village, fields, pastures, mountains, sea cliffs and dramatic peninsulas, streams and carpets of purple wild heather. If you’re a person who’s travelling to Ireland to get away from it all then this is the destination for you. Donegal Town itself is set in the Valley surrounded by Barnesmore Mountains and Donegal. The town is steeped in history and surrounded by the remains of several earthen forts.
