Burt Donegal

The villages of Burt and Bridgend are located in the fertile plain that stretches from Derry City and Lough Foyle to Inch Island and Lough Swilly. The ancient ring fort of Aileach, perched on a rounded hilltop is testimony to the historic and strategic importance of this ‘gateway’ to Inishowen and Donegal.

The city of Derry, one of the longest continuously inhabited places in Ireland, lies a few miles to the east. The earliest historical references date to the sixth century when a monastery was founded there, but for thousands of years before that people had been living in the vicinity. These people left traces of their existence in the various archaeological sites and objects which often come to light in this area.
