When I was a child our family went to the little grotto and holy well on 15th August to celebrate Our Lady's feast day. I rediscovered it last year and this year I'm looking forward to it. About 300 pilgrims gather to have a service led by the local Clonmany priest. It involves the Rosary and other prayers, hymns and... More

A great place to visit and see the Donegal Hills roll down to the wild Atlantic Ocean with the waves crashing onto the shore line. During my visit, a rainbow appeared which enhanced the view.

If you would like to see the beautiful Irish countryside pictured between two mountains looking down over a beautiful coastline, this is the place to be. There is also a nice memorial spot to stop by and say a few prayers!

Take the time to drive this route. We have driven the Gap in both directions. There are multiple places to pull over to take in the view. We also have driven this is rain and with sun. Both were beautiful!

A really scenic drive, fantastic views, breathtaking. Great place to take photos of beautiful landscape and ocean. There are parking areas if you would like to do some walking over the hills. There are walk routes for different abilities.

Only did it once and disobeyed sat navigation after that. Very narrow road. For those that want to get off their butt there is the Urris ridge hike, this road cuts the ridge. Hiking along the ridge isn't for the faint hearted but offers splendid views. Sat navigation and maps required. Did a quarter of the southern ride which loops... More

My wife and I were traveling through Donegal in May 2016. We took the drive through Mamore Gap and really enjoyed the scenery. The gap itself is not as impressive as some of the others in Ireland, yet, I would recommend you not to miss if in the area.

It's worth going a little out of your way for this. The approach from one side is a steep winding road and the descent on the other is a very long and steep straight road. Use a map and take your pick which way round you do it. The views are stunning if the weather is good. Near the summit... More
