County Donegal

County Donegal

Donegal is a popular area for its wilderness and coastal scenery, its steep cliffs (especially the Slieve League), as well as for its prehistoric and Viking remains, which dot the Irish moorland throughout the county. Donegal is also a place where Gaelic culture has been strongly preserved: Gaelic is widely spoken here, although there are some differences from the Irish Gaelic spoken in the rest of Ireland (there is a strong emphasis on Scottish tendencies).
