Tours around Co. Donegal
County Donegal is one of the best kept secrets on the map. It was officially named ‘The coolest place on the planet’ on National Geographic’s Cool List for 2017. Donegal still enjoys wide open spaces, and it is one of the few spots left that has not been overtaken by massive tourism. ENJOY IT while it lasts!
