Tour Details

The one-day Gaeltacht tour; of the Sliabh Liag Peninsula, gives a snapshot of what this Gaeltacht region in Donegal has to offer. The guided tour departs from Donegal town and Killybegs and takes a scenic coastal drive along the Wild Atlantic way to Glencolmcille.

Glencolmcille is a place of tremendous natural beauty, with dramatic changing colours and scenery, there are mountains, lakes, sea cliffs and beaches; a place of quiet roads, stone walls and fuchsia-bordered lanes. It is an ancient corner of Ireland witnessed by the sites of dwellings and the tombs of the Megalithic period and by the cross inscribed stones of early Christianity.

In Glencolmcille, guests will visit the Folk Village, a living history museum, where they will get to experience the life style and traditions of the people of Donegal since the 18th Century. The Folk Village Museum is made up off a cluster of several small thatched cottages, called a ‘clachan’, perched on a hillside overlooking the sandy curve of Glen Bay Beach. Designed, built and maintained by local people, the Folk Village is one of Ireland’s best living history museums.

During the visit to the Folk Village, guests on the tour will be given a private lesson on how to make a St. Brigid’s cross, a tradition carried out in households throughout Ireland, on St Brigid’s day (1st February), since the 5th century.  St Brigid, is one of three Patron Saints of Ireland, including St Columba and St. Patrick. During the lesson, guests will be given a history of St Brigid and her many miracles, including her ability to turn water into beer.

Guests will enjoy a homecooked lunch at the Folk Village and have time to browse through the museum shop before departing for Sliabh Liag.

The tour will then take a scenic drive to see one of Irelands best kept secrets, the magnificent Sliabh Liag Cliffs. The cliffs are the highest sea cliffs in Europe and Sliabh Liag is one of 15 signature points on the Wild Atlantic Way. The coach will take guests directly to the viewing point at Bunglas, where visitors are treated to an uninterrupted view of the cliff face, at 600m drop in to the sea, Sliabh Liag stands three times the height of the better-known Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare.

Slieve League Tour

From the cliffs, the tour will take a stop off in the Village of Carrick, where guests will be given an Irish Coffee making demonstration in Evelyn’s Central Bar. Irish Coffee is known throughout the world for its rich smooth flavour, made from Irish whiskey and strong coffee topped with whipped cream, it’s the ideal drink to warm the cockles after the brisk sea air of Sliabh Liag. To finish the afternoon off with a bang, a traditional Irish music session will be held in the bar, by an open turf fire, for the enjoyment of our guests. Music will be provided by local traditional Irish musicians and led by Tara Diamond, a renowned internationally known flautist.
