The Donegal Challenge - 25 hallowed sites during National Heritage Week

The Donegal Challenge - 25 hallowed sites during National Heritage Week

John Ward
Racontour Productions

Fancy travelling around Ireland's most beautiful county guided by a GPS tour with a Spotify playlist to tell you about each hallowed place when you get to them?

We bring you 25 exceptional places in Donegal where man has been edified, enlightened, enthroned and enraptured. These are places that have made innumerable lives that little bit richer and will perhaps be just the sort of places you need to find and savour, if only for a short while. For completely different reasons, each of these places has been singled out as somewhere that has at some stage in history made a difference – all aspects of culture are covered, from the historic to the celebrity age. From the very southern tip of the county to its pinnacle, the top ‘shrines’ of sorts are here, some secret, some known the length and breadth of the county and the country.

Ensure you familiarise yourself with the route beforehand. There are some breathtaking scenes along the way with plenty of stops required. As you are covering the full county, it would be best to do this drive over the full National Heritage Week, with plenty of sightseeing along the way. Come back revitalised.
