5 Places to visit in Donegal!

With all the beauty that Co. Donegal has to offer you will want to return again and again and experience everything it has to offer. From stunning beaches to breath-taking views, Donegal has it all.

Here are our top 5 picks to get your Donegal Bucket List off to a great start!

Sliabh Liag

No visit to Donegal is complete without a trip to the stunning Slieve League Cliffs (Sliabh Liag). A highlight along the Wild Atlantic Way, Slieve League is Ireland’s ultimate sea cliff experience. Located in the Gaeltacht region of County Donegal Sliabh Liag are the highest accessible sea cliffs in Europe where the cliff face of Bunglas rises over 600m above the ocean below. Sliabh Liag is a walker’s paradise and offers various trails for different skill and fitness levels.

Malin Head

Located in the Inishowen Peninsula, Malin Head is the most northerly point in Ireland and is renowned for its rugged coastline and stunning landscape. Malin Head is an area steeped in history and you can visit one of the lookout posts from World War I and most recently Malin Head was chosen as a location for the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Grianán of Áileach

This is one of Donegals most breathtaking landmarks. Located close to the border with Derry, on a clear day the impressive view can take in 5 counties.

The site is now a National Monument, and consists of a massive stone ringfort, thought to have been built by the Uí Néills in the seventh century.

Fanad Head

Another popular spot along the Wild Atlantic way is Fanad Head. Located on the western shore of the Donegal Coastline, it lies between Lough Swilly and Mulroy Bay. One of its main features is Fanad Lighthouse with its panoramic views across the estuary looking towards the Inishowen Peninsula and the Atlantic Ocean.

Glenveagh National Park

If you want to take in an area of outstanding natural beauty that is steeped in culture and history then a visit to Glenveagh Castle, within the National Park is a must. The Castle was built in the late 1800’s and is now preserved as a visitor attraction with thousands visiting each year.

This time of year the grounds really start to come to life, with swathes of narcissi catching the eye, here and there anemones, crocus, primula and chionodoxa are vying for attention, tulips are coming on nicely.

Spring Gardening at Harvey’s Point

The new Ballroom extension necessitated the transplanting of a lot of mature shrubs and 2 large trees, mostly with success, 2 choisya  are still a bit sorry looking  but hopefully will pull through, buddleia, hydrangea, spiraea,  aucuba  and  a very large skimmia all seemed to have survived the move as have 2 red leafed maples .

Meanwhile in the tunnel results are a bit mixed, with the old reliables  snapdragons and calendula, doing nicely but damping off disease got to my gypsophila, and the germination rate for some other plants are pretty embarrassing- statice, stocks and poppies are doing well but the likes of gaura, monarda and rosemary are only producing a few seedlings so far. Sowing will continue over the next week or so with another dozen or so annuals and perennials to be sown – the annuals as part of an ongoing experiment for cut flower production and the perennials to introduce plants of horticultural interest and increase the plant diversity around the hotel. Sweet William and sweet pea are ready to go as soon as the nights get a little warmer.

This time of year is the best time for planting, anew mixed shrubbery has been created at the end of the lakeside suites, with rhodes, camellia, magnolia, leucothoe, leptospermum, cistus, hydrangea, euonymus  and buddleia planted with a view to give year round interest.

Rhodes , camellia, spring flowering heathers and a nandina were planted around the pond area to further enhance the plant interest in that area.

Plants for the window boxes and hanging baskets have been ordered and are scheduled for delivery for mid-April.

Some of the smaller lawns around the hotel are being treated for moss and given a weak feed to perk them up a bit after the wet winter; the focus now is to keep weeds under control in the beds and borders and to start potting on seedlings with a view to start planting out in May.

We have recently become hospitality providers to the Donegal Garden Trail so guests will be able to enjoy their stay at Harvey’s Point and visit some wonderful gardens nearby, the ultimate aim is to be included in the garden trail itself, so guests will note an increase in plant diversity and planting of significant horticultural interest over the next few years.
