Pettigo Self Catering Donegal – Pettigo is a small picturesque village on the border of County Donegal and County Fermanagh. It is bisected by the Termon River which forms the border between Donegal in the Republic of Ireland and Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. The portion of the village in Northern Ireland is officially called Tullyhommon, but is locally known as ‘High Street’ due to its hillside position overlooking the remainder of the village. The remainder of the village in the Republic includes Main Street, Mill Street and Station Street, all of which meet in the The Diamond at the centre of the village.
Pettigo has traditionally been the ‘gateway’ to St. Patrick’s Purgatory, a Christian pilgrimage site, situated on an island in Lough Derg. During the mid-late 20th century, the popularity of the pilgrimage brought a significant boost to the local economy as tens of thousands of pilgrims from all over Ireland and from further afield traveled through the village on their way to and from Lough Derg.
