Dungloe - The Capital of the Rosses

The bustling town of Dungloe is the capital of The Rosses area of West Donegal. The area is bounded in the south by the Gweebarra River and by the Gweedore River to the north. The eastern boundary is defined by the Derryveagh Mountains, where Glenveagh National Park and Mount Errigal are located. The landscape of the Rosses area is rugged and is studded with a myriad of lakes and inlets of the sea. It includes the towns and townlands of Dungloe, Kincasslagh, Doochary, Loughanure Lettermacaward, Ranafast and Annagry, and the inhabited island of Arranmore Island. Other small islands are Inisfree, Iniscaoragh and Owey Island. Cruit Island is linked to the rest of the region by bridge and it boasts a challenging  and vey scenic nine-hole golf course

Dungloe hosts a number of festivals and other organised events throughout the year catering for almost every taste. These include the internationally renowned Mary Form Dungloe Festival which takes place each summer. During this 10-day event visitors to Dungloe are treated to a fantastic programme of music, song, dance and street entertainment. There is also a festival dedicated to the  local writer Peadar O'Donnell  each autumn. Nearby Burtonport has an 8 day summer festival in July each year catering for all age groups.

One of the main reasons why people come to the Dungloe area is its reputation as a great place for fishing. This is due in no small part to the work of the Rosses Angling Association. With over 130 lakes, the area is renowned for  both lake and river fishing. It is also a good base for sea angling with several charter boats based in nearby Burtonport
