Why? Well the object is not to put down other areas of Ireland but rather to offer an option and show that just this one area of Ireland, County Donegal, can at the very least match the famous tourist destinations of Ireland both in beauty and magnificence.

Afterwards, travel along the scenic countryside and visit Dunluce Castle then perhaps stopping off at the famous Bushmills Whiskey Distillery on the way before arriving at the Giant’s Causeway. You can then drive along the beautiful Antrim coast to Belfast and take in the sights of Belfast. At the end of this journey you are travelling home out of Dublin? Belfast to Dublin is just a short two hour drive now. Alternatively you could travel from Donegal, visiting these places and back to Donegal in the one (long) day.

I hope I have opened your eyes to perhaps moving off the worthy, but now very well beaten tourist trails usually taken by visitors to Ireland and venture to County Donegal up here on the north west coast of Ireland, Ireland’s crown, albeit worn at a jaunty angle!
