Killybegs is one of Ireland's largest fishing ports and has in recent years become very popular as a venue for windsurfing and other water sports.
The picturesque approach to the town is dominated by many gentle slopes rolling down to the beautiful Donegal Bay. It is the gateway to the villages of Kilcar, Carrick, Teelin and Glencolmcille and some of Ireland's most rugged and beautiful scenery and well known Gaeltacht region.
While in Killybegs, visit the Maritime & Heritage Centre, where there are models, displays and audio-visuals of the local fishing and maritime history of the area. This was the site of the famous Killybegs Carpet factory, and the worlds biggest hand knotted carpet loom can still be seen, along with fascinating live demonstrations of hand knotted carpet weaving.
Drive further west on through Carrick then head south towards Teelin; then follow the signs that point to the road leading to Slieve League, the tallest sea cliffs in Ireland and possibly Europe.

I travel a lot so I'm always looking for interesting places to stay - anything to avoid another carbon copy hotel - and this has got to be one of the best local travel sites I've seen. Plenty of detail, tons of photos, excellent location info and clear pricing - everything I need to make an informed call. Great job and I'll be recommending the site to anyone else I know who's travelling in Donegal.
