Private Tour Showcasing the Life and Culture of the Heart of Donegal


This is a full day tour that begins at the heart and will take you through the life, culture and beauty once experienced by our ancestors.

This private tour includes the Donegal Co. Museum, St. Eunan's Cathedral and a guided tour of Newmills Corn & Flax seed Mill in Newmills.

We'll include Glebe Art Gallery and then we'll go to the heart of the Derryveigh mountains, where we'll tour Glenveagh Castle & Gardens. Moving on from here, we'll see the shocking contrast between the Derryveigh mountains and Glendowan mountains where the the 'Poisoned Glen' lies at the base of Mt. Errigal, the highest mountain in Co. Donegal and watch the process of spinning wool. We will also cross over the bridge of tears where our ancestors waved their final farewells, before we take you back to a location that suits you.

As this is your private tour, you may book this tour as it's written or we'll customize it to suit your interests and your schedule.

Itinerary

This private tour fills the day beginning at the Donegal Museum, followed by the imposing St Eunan's Cathedral in the heart of LetterKenny; followed by a guided tour of Newmills Corn & Flax mill.

Next, we'll immerse ourselves in the talent of a local artist known world wide as Derek Hill before taking another guided tour of Glenveagh Castle & gardens.

From there we'll see how wool is spun at the Dunlewey center and take a trip across the bridge of Tears where our ancestors waved their final farewell. Next we'll carry on to see some of Donegal's wild coastline before we take you back to the location that suits you best.

As with all of our tours, we'd be happy to modify the day to suit your interests and your schedule.
