DONEGAL DAY TOUR: Coast and Castles

By Chieftain Tours
Visitors that come to Ireland but that don’t experience the Northern Headlands and the Wild Atlantic Way guided by the inside knowledge of locals have largely missed out on the real jewel. It is this that inspired Chieftain tours to create day tour options for visitors who want a mere taste of all that is to offer in the North West region. Embark and explore those secrets on the road less traveled by Private Luxury Car or Minibus chauffeured by a knowledgeable and experienced driver guide. ➡️ This chauffeured private day tour is delivered by a Fáilte Ireland accredited driver guide. ➡️ This day tour is flexible and tailored for clients on the day to stop, go and explore. ➡️ Tours commence at 9am and finish at 5pm. Times are approximate and may be subject to change.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Joe was an extraordinary guide, and we immediately knew it would be a great day with him the minute we engaged with his remarkable personality! He suggested that we briefly discuss the tour and our preferences so he could ensure he would meet our expectations (which were exceeded). We are seasoned travelers with a strong interest in learning about the history, stories, and culture of the places we tour. Joe, having been born and raised in Ireland, was definitely prepared and uniquely qualified to deliver an exceptional experience.

As we began our journey, Joe shared the historical background of our first location and described the stops we would make along the Wild Atlantic Way. What stood out to us right away, is that he shared how the history of these incredible places and events impacted those living in these locations during the periods covered, as well as the Irish people living there today. His expressive storytelling provided us with a much deeper understanding of the people of Ireland. We also learned how far back the history of Ireland has been verified (prior to the neolithic era)!

If you enjoy history and learning about the people and places you visit when traveling, this educational, entertaining and impactful experience is for you! Joe was also a skilled driver with a wonderful sense of humor, which he generously shared with us as he graciously shared the road with others. Thank you, Joe, and Chieftain Tours, for creating treasured lifelong memories and an incredible day of sights, stories, and fun!
