Kilcar Self Catering – Kilcar is located in southwest Donegal overlooking the broad sweep of Donegal Bay and is known to be a centre of the hand-woven tweed industry, along with hand-embroidery, knitting, and other cottage industries which flourish in this area.
Hill walking is popular, and to cater for that, the Kilcar Way Walk allows one a choice of three different, but equally beautiful routes all starting in the village: – one loops around the western foothills of Mulnanaff – another runs east and north-east to Kilcar Forest – the third skirts around Tawny.
There are also remains of an ancient ring fort, a ‘megalithic’ tomb and the ruins of (the original) St Cartha’s Church, built in the 7th century, from which the village derives it’s name.
Kilcar is located in a beautiful part of South-West Donegal, between Ireland’s premier fishing port of Killybegs and majestic Slieve League and the parish of Glencolmcille. To the north east we are separated from Ardara by the spectacular Glengesh Pass, one of the most photographed views in Ireland.
Kilcar is the gateway to the Donegal Gaeltacht, situated between mountain and sea – a great centre for both activity and relaxation, offering the best in culture and tradition with modern amenities.
The area around Kilcar offers panoramic seascapes, unspoilt beaches, hills and mountains affording magnificent views and superb walks, impressive megalithic tombs and historic sites largely unknown outside the area; traditional crafts like knitting and weaving; a vibrant interest in Irish Traditional music, lively pubs, and a friendly and welcoming people
