Hudi Beags

Reviewed By designminkey - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Best pint of Guinness I've had so far. The Public Bar is great if you love GAA (Gaelic Football) or anything to do with Celtic or Ireland. Its quite small and intimate where you can get to know the locals. The Lounge bar has a more traditional look and has live music. Will definitely be back. A great wee place!

Mount Errigal

Reviewed By preglad - New York

Much of the area surrounding Mount regal includes impressive natural structure. Once or twice, one might erroneously wonder, "Oh is this or that Errigal?" until engaging the mother lode leaves no room for uncertainty. And that's another issue. It's so often capped in clouds of fog for a bit. In such a posture, it's difficult to get a more distinct impression, reminiscent of the B&W Dracula, first Speilberg Jaws flick or Musical Comedy Brigadoon.
After awhile, a clear vista breaks out from top to bottom, with surrounding landscapes rivaling for some of the attention as well.

Daniel O'Donnell Visitor Centre

Reviewed By Noel G - Dublin, Ireland

We were surprised to find we were the only visitors at mid-day in the prime tourist season, especially since Daniel had recently completed a very popular TV season. We are not particul fans, so others would find the displays and information to be more interesting. Apart from the introductory video the overall presentation is too static. We spent less than 30 minutes overall.

Arranmore Ferry

Ferries depart daily from Burtonport (Áilt an Chorráin). We're the largest, most modern family run ferry to Arranmore Island. Total journey time 15-20 minutes. Certified with the Department of Marine and Fáilte Ireland to carry vehicles and up to 96 passengers. Indoor and outdoor Seating areas with onboard toilet facilities (suitable for those with reduced mobility).

Reviewed By Stirfry151 - Bangor, United Kingdom

Arranmore Island has spectacular scenery and is well worth a visit. We took a ferry from Burtonport across to it – return fare is 15 euros/adult; I think it’s free for those with over-65 travel passes. You are supposed to get a 10% discount if you book online but we couldn’t get it to work. We just bought tickets at the port which suited well as there are two ferry companies (one red and one blue) so there are plenty of times to choose from - just turn up and take whatever boat is the next to go.
You can get a map illustrating the island’s attractions and walking routes from either ferry ticket office at Burtonport pier. The ferry also carries cars if walking isn’t your thing or if you want to stay longer on the island, although you would need to pre-book your car as the ferry can take only a few cars (about 4).
We walked the circular walk shown on the map and spent 6 hours on the island. The centre of the island is beautiful moorland, the coast has beautiful Beaches and there are spectacular cliffs on the route to the lighthouse. It was terrific for walks and we would have loved to have stayed longer, so next time we hope to stay overnight and take the car on the ferry.

Cluain na dTor Seaside Nursery & Gardens

Reviewed By geraldvanthornton - Belfast, United Kingdom

Cluain na dTor is quite a magical experience, an oasis of exuberant plants and trees. The entrance to the nursery and Gardens gives little indication of the unexpected treasures to be discovered within. There is a sense of being transported into another world as you walk through the garden in a cocoon of plants. Everywhere you look there is planting which has been done with thought and care, especially wonderful is the exotic garden - I was surprised and delighted to see so many unusual plants growing in such a wind swept part of the country.
A garden that is definitely worth a repeat visit - highly recommended.

Bunbeg Wreck (Bad Eddie's Boat)

Reviewed By Steve H - United Kingdom

Located on the main Bunbeg beach which is stunning!. Very shallow waters where you can wade out across to the island. The ship wreck is best seen when the tide is out, great for kids and photo shoots. the beach is amazing for care free play time for kids and lovely views of the sea and land. There is a free car park close by but we drove on to the beach before sunset and it was brilliant, lovely views of the sun sinking, the ship wreck laying on the sand and a lovely evening, very romantic!!.

Bunbeg Harbour Cafe Bar and Bistro

Reviewed By SamOLeary - Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

We had a fantasist evening at Bunbeg .... Dinner in the restaurant and drinks afterwards outside where the owners lit a fire and we spend the night laughing and joking with guests and locals . Only the arrival of rain at midnight brought an end to the fun. Highly recommend this place .... Tucked away in a Special corner of Donegal . Fab fresh food (mussels picked by the owner that day), good wine and lots of laughter . Very Friendly service .Dont miss it
