Visit Donegal

The 5-day Donegal Experience tour is a great way to get fully immersed in the culture, language, music and scenery in the Donegal Gaeltacht. Each night is spent in a different part of the Gaeltacht, with the days spent travelling through the stunning countryside of County Donegal, voted the Coolest place on the Planet by National Geographic in 2018 and 2019. The tour also takes a trip across the border to Derry, to give our guests a brief political history, which led to the creation of a border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.
