Wild Atlantic Way

PERFECT LOCATION TO VISIT THE MAIN SIGNATURE POINTS ON THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY

The Abbey Hotel Donegal Town is perfectly located within easy access of main signature discovery points on the Wild Atlantic Way near beautiful coastal drives, scenic mountain ranges, amazing sunsets, fantastic wild life and stunning scenery which will take your breath away.

Visit the stunning the Slieve League (Sliabh Liag)– the highest cliff edge in Europe – from passing through the famous Killybegs fishing Port to the Gaeltacht area of Kilcar, a traditional Irish Town with the memorable Folk Village of Glencolmcille - experience life as it was in the 1700’s, 1800's and 1900’s. The thatched cottages are exact replicas of those belonging to that era and are furnished accordingly. Take a look at how our ancestors lived, cooked, the beds they lay on, the tools they used, their means of lighting and heat. For those of you who can trace your ancestors to Ireland, this is an ideal opportunity to see rural life at first hand.

Donegal has approximately 26 Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way and three iconic visitor attractions (Fanad Head, Malin Head and Sliabh Liag) along the route.

Take in a spot of golf on some superb links courses and even some island hopping or visit the famous magical Glenveigh National Park…a must see!
