County Donegal’s cultural and economic ties to neighbouring Northern Ireland and its geographical separation from the rest of the Republic give it a uniquely Irish identity. While it may have Ulster influences, a third of the county is Gaeltacht (predominantly Irish speaking) and it has as much history, culture and charm as any other Irish region – plus some of the best scenery the island has to offer.

Historic sites in Donegal

The ancient, myth-shrouded site of Grianan an Aileach has existed – in one form or another – for millennia and is an important part of Gaelic history. St Patrick is said to have visited the hilltop site in the 5th century to baptise Eoghan, the local chieftain. Visitors today will see a 19th century reconstruction of the ringfort thought to have been destroyed by the king of Munster Muircheartach Ua Briain in 1101; and on a clear day, enjoy a commanding panorama of the Donegal landscape.

Five Fingers Strand, Co. Donegal

Five Fingers Strand, Co. Donegal

For more jaw-dropping views with a generous dose of history, go to Fanad Head. The working lighthouse here is one of the 12 Great Lighthouses of Ireland and visitors can tour the premises and hear stories about the 200-year-old lighthouse’s many keepers and their work. You can even stay at one of the self-catering cottages on site.

Don’t miss a tour of Glenveagh Castle, found on the shores of Lough Veagh. It was built around 1870 by Captain John George Adair, a member of the Irish minor gentry and US landowner who was married to Texas-born Cornelia Wadsworth, daughter of an American Civil War general. The grand mansion was later purchased by Harvard professor Arthur Kingsley Porter, and subsequently owned by a Philadelphia socialite before being returned to the Irish people to allow for the creation of the Glenveagh National Park, which is home to the largest herd of red deer in Ireland.

 

Grianán of Aileach, Co. Donegal

For an overnight castle experience, book a romantic stay at the five-star Lough Eske Castle hotel and spa – in the 16th century the surrounding area was home to the O’Donnell clan, one of Ireland’s most powerful ruling families.

Things to do in Donegal

There are thousands of things to see and do along the Wild Atlantic Way, a 2,500km tourist trail spanning the entire west coast of Ireland. It starts on Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula, where you’ll find Blue Flag beaches Culdaff and Shroove, as well as the most northerly point of Ireland, beautiful Malin Head (recently featured in Star Wars: The Last Jedi).

Errigal, Co. Donegal

Up for a challenge? For a bird’s eye view of the county’s loughs and rolling hills, consider climbing Mount Errigal (2,464 ft) if weather permits. Alternatively, tackle the short, well-signposted, family-friendly hike to Glenevin Waterfall, taking advantage of its new picnic areas.

Other beauty spots in County Donegal include the dramatic Sliabh Liag cliffs, said to be the highest sea cliffs in Europe. Walk in the footsteps of pilgrims and visit the clifftop viewpoint to soak up the scenery from on high, or join a boat or kayak tour to get a perspective from the sea.

Beadlet anemone, Malin Beg, Co. Donegal

A smattering of islands can be found along Donegal’s coast, many of which are uninhabited. The most accessible island is Arranmore (twinned with Beaver Island, Lake Michigan), which is peppered with WWII lookouts, ancient forts and prime bird spotter locations.

From Donegal County Museum in Letterkenny (the county’s largest town) to St Conall’s Museum and Heritage Centre (one of Ireland’s best small-town museums), there are plenty of ways to discover Donegal’s history. Perhaps the best of all is The Glencolmcille Folk Village on the Gaeltacht Glencolmcille Peninsula; the living museum features replicate 18th, 19th and 20th century Irish dwellings as well as a school and pub.

Need a new suit? Or perhaps a souvenir? Consider visiting Magee of Donegal. Established in 1866 as a drapers, this historic tweed company offers hand weaving demonstrations and a made-to-measure service, as well as countless traditional Irish tweed products made in colours inspired by Donegal’s landscape – from purple heather to moss green.

Trá Na Rossan Beach, Co. Donegal

Best food and drink in Donegal

Sample craft beer and catch a live trad music session at Dicey Reillys Bar in Ballyshannon,  the oldest town in Ireland. For a real party, time your visit with the town’s annual folk and traditional music festival, held each August. Spirits your tipple of choice? Try a seaweed-infused small-batch gin at the new Sliabh Liag Distillers.With its long, craggy coastline and rich maritime heritage, Donegal is the place for fresh seafood. Killybegs is home to one of Ireland's biggest fishing ports; taste the catch of the day at raspberry-pink farmhouse Kitty Kelly's (frequented by Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker, who owns a holiday home nearby) or Killybegs Seafood Shack.

(Part 1 of 3) The Campbell name is from Scotland, but its origin according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. The Campbell story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Campbell surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwened in Brittany. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Campbell story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Ward

Nancy Ward (Nanyehi Ghigau , Beloved Woman) Native Indian from what is now known as America (please refrain from using the term Native Americans as that is a spit in the face of our people/ should this land not be Cherokee land and thereby called the Cherokee Country.. we are Native Cherokee Indians and my blood is the blood The Wolf Clan of The Cherokee Nation and yet it is also the blood of the Vikings from Norman called Weard, Waird, Ward, MacAward, MacWard which has ran through the blood of many peoples and many nations, if you care to know the true origins of the Wards and why they left Norman and split into two equal halves with one half commanded to settle in England and the Second Half commanded to settle in Ireland I will be glad to uncover the family's long and very well kept secrets. Another subject for another day.. Here we have one of ours that is held in such high regard by many who know not the truth and yet I feel she should know her way into your history books in association with the dangerous individuals who have always been hot blooded, The Ward Family. I do not deny that my bloodline comes from very.. well let's just say it shall we.. dangerous, murderous, and unscrupulous folk's that demanded their bloodline should survive but not only survive but should thrive.. and no Ward would hesitate to kill anyone who stood in the way of that one very important and very key idea behind the entire migration from Norman to begin with.. infamous is the name Ward for they were not trust worthy and liable to stick a blade in you instead of having to look at you.. yet nobody had the courage to say it to the face of a Ward did they, no they did not and this remains the way it is to this very day.. each branch of the forlorn family tree would have to move away from the other branches to keep from killing each other off.. sorry lot you see.. the curse of The Wards Forlorn Family Tree.. good ole Viking Blood and Personalities.. gotta love em or don't I don't care.. anyways, My Great by 8 grandmother was Nancy 'Nanyehi' Ward / Born 1738 CHOTA /Death between 1822 and 1824 there are some discrepancies upon the date of her death due to the fact that she went into hiding and started going by a different name.. now you will not find what I am about to tell you in any of the history books and archives but that is not a new thing now is it.. more often than not the way history is told is not the way it truly was.. #*Nanyehi was found to be a traitor in the end and marked for death by the Cherokee Nation*#.. (this should be obvious to anyone of any real intelligence upon reading the articles widely available across the internet concerning her traitorous ways) combined with the not so forgiving Cherokee People... Traitors, their wives and the children included,. were burned alive.. have a read and ask yourself if you really believe the Cherokees who would scalp you where you stand (scalp means to cut the flesh and hair from the head of a living person ) would permit such traitors to remain among them much less among the land of the living?!? I sincerely doubt she was able to hide her treacherous actions of a traitor for too long after the white children were born.. many times she gave up her people to the white man and sided with the white man, married the white man and gave birth to the white man's children and if not for her discrepancies (one who goes about) I would not be alive now to be writing this for you.. fortunately I am without an heir and this branch of the monsterous and monster filled Forlorn Ward Family Tree will die with me and be buried with my body and whatever blood is left in it and the world will be better for it.. The reign and terror of the monster slowly dies off and is written out of the history books to be forever swept under the carpet.. I am known as White Wolf of the Cherokee Nations Wolf Clan and Billy Joe Ward of The Ward Family's.. Father was Roy Clark Ward and his father was Vernon Lee Ward of the south eastern states of American including but not limited to.. the Carolinas, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, the Virginia's, New York all the way down to Florida and back many times.. spread throughout the land like so many drops from Johnny Appleseed's hand. Feel free to query me for more details should you fancy them. Remarkably and So Very Truly Yours, White Wolf (Bill "Billy" Joe Ward) NAJA COBRA

Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Cannon story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I am looking for Henry McBride & Mary McBride (Malone) whose son Bernard McBride emigrated to Australia in 1865. I cannot find any records of Henry and Mary after the birth of their children in Dundalk. I have traced one daughter to Cavan. Trying to find where Henry came from as I don't think he was native to Dundalk. Where do most McBrides come from in Ireland?

Hello We are looking for information on 2 brothers, Arthur and Johnnie/Johnny Boyles who came to the British Colony St Kitts, (from Ireland it was said) possibly in the late 1800s or very early 1900s. We are not sure of their year of birth but Johnnie/Johnny Boyles is the father of Gladys Boyles who was born in 1909. Based on this we estimate his birth to be between 1864 and 1870, could be a bit earlier or later. Gladys was born in St Kitts but moved to UK in the 1950s until her death in 1982. Her children, except one who still remain in St Kitts, also moved to the UK. Gladys is my grandmother. I inherited the Boyles surname but would like to know more of my ancestors.

(Part 1 of 3) The Boyle name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Boyle story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Boyle surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.
Reply

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Boyle story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I had always heard, that some of the Duffys, who immigrated from Ireland, to America, (and who were Protestant) changed the name and added an "e" to indicate that they were Protestant instead of Catholic. My GGGG Grandad, Michael Duffey, immigrated from Londonderry in the later half of the 1700s, with his friend, Thomas Ramsey and actually fought in the American Revolution. After the war, he settled in Fayette county, PA and eventually migrated to Adams County, OH (via the Ohio River.) My father's name was Denver H. Duffey, born in Springfield, OH (10/01/1920).

He immigrated from Ireland to Canada, with a family legend that his brother was with him but went on and he never saw him again. Some of us have had our DNA done and see evidence of our line in Canada, of course, but also in Australia. There is possibility that William left a family in Ireland, with a wife named Mary Ann" and just started a new one in Canada.

Ship was "City of Rome", left Queenstown Ireland late May, stopped at Liverpool, then to New York, arriving June 1, 1883. They moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to be near his parents. John/Thomas and Mary had daughter Mary Eva in 1884, then 2 sons, Thomas and William. My g-grandmother, Mary Eva, used to tell my mom about two uncles who lived in County Cork and were both priests.

Robert Curran was the son of Robert Curran, a Whitesmith (born about 1806 and died in approx. 1871) in Portaferry. My Curran family relatives resided at New Row in Portaferry in the 1800's, which has since been renamed "Shore Street" and was located directly across the street from Portaferry's Gas Work's (which no longer exists but used to be next to the Saltpans). I believe that Capt. Robert Curran, who was a Fisherman/Master Mariner, had at least 3 brothers (John, Thomas and Patrick Curran), who were also all sailors/seamen. In January of 1867 at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Chapel (Diocese of Down & Connor), Capt. Robert Curran, married the daughter of a Master Mariner from Killough, County Down named Capt. Richard McSherry (my 3x great-grandfather), named Mary McSherry. Capt. Richard McSherry lived in/was associated with the residence at Fisherman’s Row in Killough, County Down during the early to mid-1800’s before he moved his family up to Ballymacarrett, and then Belfast’s old Sailortown neighborhood in the early 1860’s. For most of Capt. Robert Curran and Mary McSherry’s marriage they lived and raised their 7-8 children where Mary’s father, Captain Richard McSherry, owned a Pub/Tavern & Inn at 15 Corporation Square, directly across the street from the Belfast Harbour Office, which was called either "The Harbour Arms" or "The Harbour Arms Hotel" or "The Harbour Hotel" from approximately 1863 until his death in September of 1887. Capt. Robert Curran and Mary McSherry Curran's 2nd eldest daughter is/was my great-grandmother, Jane Elizabeth Curran (married name Oxton). I am told that every summer up until she immigrated to Brooklyn, New York with her husband John F. Oxton, and their 2 sons in May of 1924, my great-grandmother, Jane Elizabeth Curran Oxton, would return to the Killough and Portaferry areas to visit her extended family, and to also ensure that her sons, Jack & Charlie Oxton (Charlie is my paternal grandfather), knew their Irish roots and Irish relatives by being able to spent time in the beautiful part of Northern Ireland where their mother and maternal grandparents grew up. I am trying to connect with any remaining Curran and McSherry relatives (or anyone who happened to know of my Curran or McSherry relatives) who may still remain in or around the Belfast, Portaferry and Killough areas? Both my McSherry and my Curran relatives (at least the ones I’m specifically aware of) were all Seamen/Mariners/Fisherman in County Down and Belfast throughout the 1800's. I am also wondering if anyone has any old photographs of New Row/Shore Street in Portaferry, Corporation Square/Tomb Street in Belfast directly across from the Belfast Harbour Office, or of Fisherman’s Row in Killough that they would be willing to share with me? I have also been able to confirm that several of my direct McSherry Relatives, including my 3x great-grandfather Captain Richard McSherry and are least 3 of his daughters are all buried at Rossglass Catholic Graveyard. Any tid-bit of information you are willing to share will be GREATLY appreciated!! ???????????????????? PLEASE feel free to send me an e-mail directly at joxtonlaw@gmail.com if you have any stories, photographs or information you can share or are willing to share about any Curran ancestors from eastern County Down (Downpatrick, Portaferry areas). Thank you for your time. Please also pass this message along to anyone you know who may be interested in connecting with me or may have information that may help me in my search for relatives, stories and/or photographs of the places my great grandparents were born and raised.????????????????

OOps! Error in earlier conversation. James Curran's birth date registered in the District of Whitechurch was August 4, 1866 NOT August 4, 1888.

Curran

James Curran was born August 5, 1866 in Ireland. He died in St. Louis, Missouri August 18, 1910. According to the death certificate his father was John Curran and his mother was Margerette Curran. (Curran was listed as her maiden name!!) James was married to Hannah Crowley in St. Louis, MO November 21, 1888. I found a James Curran birth registered in the District of Whitechurch in the Union of Dungarvan in the County of Waterford. It lists his father as John Curran and Margaret Curran formally Curran, both from Ballygambon. James was born on August 4, 1888. I bothers me the birth date differs by a day.

My grandpa, Thomas Morton McHugh, was born c. 1883-1887 in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo. He emigrated to North America around 1911 and then married Alice Kate Maunder in Vancouver B.C. in 1913. My father, Thomas Roland McHugh was born in Vancouver B.C. and then they both moved to Seattle, Washington and became U.S. citizens. I'm trying to locate the exact date and parents names of Thomas Morton McHugh. I think he may have had a sister Bridget or maybe a mom named Bridget. I'm unable to determine which records are truly his.

Donna McGinty Hi am trying to trace my ancestors from Co Donegal. I have got as far back to around 1870 +, to my great, great, grandad Daniel McGinty and his wife Bridget Delny, a farmer in Co Donegal. On of Daniels sons Neil or Neal McGinty emigrated to Scotland, he married a Julia Rodden, they settled in a small village of east calder in west lothian, scotland. I believe the family moved to Letterkenny. There are no records as they were destroyed in a fire during WW2. I would love to find my family if anyone can shed any light. also i have recently discovered other info when I done a DNA with ancersty.com. It would appear that my family actually originated in Scotland 1600/1700 before they moved to Co Donegal, which would give me a past Scottish clan. If anyone can assist I would be most grateful.

My wife was born to an Alice McGonigal in Chicago in 1973 (according to her birth certificate). A recent ancestry DNA test confirmed 50% Irish heritage from the area on this site! Looking for information on her family as she was adopted and has no idea beyond what I have just provided. Thanks for any help!

If you are from the Crossan family in Wales or America that leads back to either one or you think you might be, it would be interesting to see, please leave a message for me.

My grandmother is Nellie Mae Crossan from america, Kansas City Missouri, I believe. And her ancestry get cut short, is missing information, after my greats I believe. Any information about my ancestry from that side is appreciated. Her husband was, Lawrence Ragsdale, I already know about the Ragsdales, from the famous Godfrey Ragsdale but much to learn about the Welsh Crossan side, from Wales.

My Great-Aunt Sarah Scott, born in Portrush County Antrim about 1840-44, is thought to have married a man named McWard and to have lived (emigrated) to New Zealand. Is there any trace of her? Thanks!

My ancestors came from County Donegal to United States (McNutt) and possibly Taylor’s, both direct lines thru my dad. I want to find out more and learn about my ancestors.

My Kelly-Mulheron family left Ballybofey or Lettekenny in about 1820 with at least 2 sons: Charles W. and Patrick. Son James Joseph remained behind and came years later with a wife and children. They came to New Erin, Quebec, Canada. Would love to know if any relatives remained behind. Thanks

Donegal County Council runs a pretty cool Diaspora Festival each year which is growing in numbers each year. We will post some info on it asap.

Donegal has a incredible coastline and set of hills and mountains. When you visit you will see how it was picked as a setting for a recent Star Wars movie.
