Killybegs is Irelands busiest fishing port and being situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean it offers the ideal base for the visitor to Donegal’s beautiful southwest and the gateway to Sliabh Liag, Europe’s highest sea cliffs. Killybegs and the surrounding area has a large number of sites of archaeological and historical interest including Neolithic Tombs and a number of Mass Rocks dating back to the penal times of the 17th Century. For generations the people of Killybegs have made their living from the sea and today it is home to super safari angling with record numbers of blue fin tuna being caught. The sheltered waters of Donegal Bay permit angling in all but the very worst of weather conditions. There are a number of charter boats that offer excellent service. In addition to sea angling some charter boats offer sight seeing trips. These trips offer stunning views of the stunning coastline, Sliabh Liag and the awe inspiring sight of the mighty waves crashing onto the shore some 600 metres below.
