    A must in Donegal! We saw the Turas exhibition in the gallery and then taken round the Derek Hill's House by a very knowledgeable and personable guide Kathleen. The house and history is fascinating, the art, decoration and all the pieces are beautiful, eclectic and individual, provided with hostoryand context, and a lovely, homely, unchanged kitchen. Also told about the history of nearby Glenveagh Castle qnd surrounding area, so a good and comprehensive overview of the region! Short of moving in, I would recommend it!

    As someone interested in genealogy I have researched my mothers family in great detail. I discovered that my great grandfather was a "scutcher" and this puzzled me for ages. While visiting the Newmills Corn and Flax Mill I saw and actual representation of the work done by scutchers back in the 1800's. Its a really interesting place to visit and gives you a very visual experience how people produced corn and flax back then.

    Visited the theatre on 11th November for The Lost Brothers concert. It was just a fantastic evening of beautiful music and the venue had strict Covid prevention procedures in place ie social distancing inside the theatre and inspection of Vaccination Certs and wearing of masks. Recommend it to everyone 🙂

    Well worth a visit, this small museum is curated by friendly and helpful staff. There are a good range of exhibits for all the family to enjoy, particularly upstairs and the downstairs displays rotate regularly.

    Waited to inquire about tours until arrival in Letterkenny. Found out that tours on different schedule then summer. They gladly excepted us on tour for next day. Extremely clean bus and Paddy was the best driver- guide. Collection of guests from hotels and drop off at end of tour is a delight. Would recommend this tour company to anyone in the Donegal area.

    Booked Henry for a return airport pick up and drop off between Belfast and Killybegs. Will definitely book him if I'm ever in that neck of the woods again. An excellent service and a really nice guy.

    Initially went in to McGinleys for some food. The interior is a cosy Irish pub, which is great if that’s what you’re after. It was pretty quiet, with traditional Irish music playing and a few men sitting having drinks. I’m not much of a fan of this type of atmosphere admittedly. However, the barman was quick to explain that out the back, they had a double decker bus (quirkily named ‘The Pineapple Express’) that served as a kitchen, making fresh pizza! This was much more my vibe, with some great dance music playing in the rooftop seating area, and a good selection of delicious cocktails. The guy who served us was friendly and efficient. A good evening overall!

    I visited mccaffertys with a group of friends and I have to say it lived up to the hype. Several cool bars under the one roof. And great pints as well. Thumbs up.
