Donegal Town Harbour

Donegal Town, Co Donegal, North West Ireland

The channel to Donegal has recently been re-surveyed and marked with new lit buoys and beacons. There are visitors’ moorings less than a mile downriver from the historic town of Donegal, and access by dinghy to the town quays is straightforward. Donegal has a well-restored Jacobean castle, and the ruins of a 15th-century friary where the Annals of the Four Masters – the first systematic history of Ireland – were written. The Donegal Railway Heritage centre has mementoes of the old narrow-gauge railway which once served the town.


Facilities include: Visitor Moorings, Anchorage, Fuel by can, Gas, Wi-Fi , Provisions Store, Tourist Information Centre, Bar, Restaurant, Post Office, Internet Access.


Donegal town has good nightlife with pubs, nightclub and restaurants available. Lough Eske is one of Ireland's loveliest lakes. Lying beneath the Blue Stacks, it gives rise to the Eske River, which enters the bay at Donegal harbour. Angling for salmon, sea trout and brown trout is available in both Lake and River.
