Flights to Donegal
Alive with adventure
If you want to discover something off the beaten track, Donegal is untouched, off the radar and crying out for exploration. Mix this with deliciously fresh seafood, friendly locals and traditional Irish music in cosy pubs and the perfect hidden gem awaits.
There is so much to see and do in Donegal. Stroll the sheer granite walls of some of Europe’s highest sea cliffs at Slieve League and you might spot some wild dolphins in the distance. Visit Malin Head at the very tip of the Inishowen Peninsula, Ireland’s most northerly point. Fanad Head is a wildly exposed headland known for the iconic Fanad Head Lighthouse, as well as stunning scenery and incredible beaches. Watch out for grey seals bobbing in the sea, pretty coves and powerful waves crashing across the rocks, maybe even a breaching whale in the distance.
Wanna catch a wave? Bundoran was named one of the World’s Coolest Surf Towns by Travel+Leisure, a place where passion for pubs, music and surf culture collides. You’ll find a similar ethos at Rossnowlagh, Dunfanaghy and the Fanad Peninsula.
Of course, surfing is only the start of the outdoor options. Try salmon fishing, diving in Donegal Bay, rock-climbing on offshore islands, or hiking along the sea cliffs of the Atlantic shore: you won’t want for fresh air in the northwest.
All of this and more is waiting for you to uncover in Donegal. Book flights to Donegal from Glasgow Airport.
For those looking to truly “get active”, a trip to the Wild Atlantic Way is a must. Why do you ask? Well to name a few reasons:
The Donegal coastline is littered with some of the world’s best dive sites for all grades of divers. Historic wrecks home to diverse marine life lie waiting for you to get beneath the waves.
A road trip to remember
The roads meandering down the Irish coast take in some of the most dramatic views in Europe. Start by being in awe with the sight of the Slieve League Cliffs (the highest in Europe), here you can literally feel on the edge of the world.
Special golfing spots
The county boasts a range of quality golf courses including Ballyliffin, often known as “the Ballybunion of the North” or the Dornoch of Ireland. Or if you ask us, we suggest you try out Rosapenna (Sandy Hills) course which was designed by Pat Ruddy. Right from the off you will feel like you are in a lunar landscape, surrounded by its impressive dunes. Remember, we only charge £10 one-way to take your own clubs!
Bundoran in County Donegal is Ireland’s surf capital – with spots that can be relied upon such as Tullan Strand or the world class reef break of The Peak. The county is also home to some of the best surf schools in Ireland.
