    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Ireland's most north western county, Donegal shares a long land border with Northern Ireland and connects to the rest of the Republic of Ireland by a small 12 mile corridor of land. Once the home of the O'Donnell clan that had a striking point in the history of Ireland. Donegal or Dhún na nGall (Fort of the Foreigner in Gaelic) is a rugged mix of windswept mountains, high bogland & spectacular coastline. In the South West of the County one can explore Europe's highest sea cliffs at Slieve League. There are hundreds of miles of white sand beaches, great surfing and the county is a hill walker's paradise. It is also known for its seafood and you have to try the local cuisine if you go to Donegal.

    A welcome haven from Ireland's growing commercialization, Donegal is as unspoiled and genuine as you'll find in any part of the Island. With its strong Gaelic language and culture it remains one of the best places to come to study this ancient language and hear it spoken on a daily basis. The county is also one of the best locations for genuine traditional music sessions - usually in local pubs - especially famous for its vibrant fiddle playing tradition. As the tourism adverts say (and its true) Donegal... up here its different.
