“Stunning beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This part of Ireland is so starkly beautiful - it is absolutely amazing, we drove through it on a wild wet day and also on a dry bright day - both times the stark beauty stood out - a must see

“Barnesmore Gap cycle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

On a good day, this is a majestic place to pass through and especially to cycle. Very interesting to stop at the picnic area and read the experiences of a fellow traveler from a distant past. This is a constant slow gradient to climb, especially from Donegal to Ballybofey but every ascent there is always a brilliant descent!

Barnesmore Gap is well worth a visit, it is peaceful and a beautiful place. Stop off at Biddy's on your way for refreshments.
