Hiking - Donegal Way

Hiking - Donegal Way
Donegal Ireland

The Donegal Way follows two long distance walking routes: the Bluestack Way from Donegal Town to Ardara and Sli Cholmcille, (Columcille’s Way) one of the Bealach na Gaeltachta – The Ways of the Gaeltacht – a set of long distance walking routes covering most of northwest Donegal. This is walking country – small villages, green roads and a stunning variety of scenery.

Donegal is the north west outpost of Ireland. Separated from the rest of the republic by the slimmest Northern Ireland Border and wrapped in an extensive Atlantic coastline. The county carries this sense of independence in its physical geography, its people and the stark beauty of the land. The area has survived the rigours of the Atlantic, poor quality farmland, immigration, isolation and is moving into the 21st century in its own right, as a place of tradition and culture, unsullied by mass tourism.

The route crosses the Bluestack Mountains, with peaks of 600m but the Way rarely climbs above 250m. It is an unspoilt area and a glimpse into a Donegal of the past. The Bluestacks are wild, rough and very beautiful with wonderful views of south Donegal and they really do look blue!
The Ways are very well marked with clear signposting along the route. Approximately 30% of this route is on tarred roads.

Tour Highlights
- The corner that many miss- dramatic mountains and rivers in the far north western corner.
