The Wilds of Donegal Private Tour

Derry City

When booking please note the total cost will always be the same value no matter the size of the party booking.


County Donegal is named the ‘wild child of Ireland’ by Lonely Planet and is a largely Irish-speaking region bordering the Atlantic Ocean in North Western Ireland. It is home to some of the most ravishingly sublime scenery and beautiful beaches. This is a county of extremes with at times desolate and battered by brutal weather, yet also a land of unspoilt splendour where stark peaks and sweeping beaches bask in glorious sunshine and restaurants serve majestically cooked food.


Located just miles from Derry, of course we offer Donegal tours. With the outstanding beauty and countless breath-taking views we offer tours to groups, couples and individuals. This tour contains an exclusive private coach journey around the county and with plenty of time for your walking tour at stops throughout, our tour guides are more than happy to recommend places to eat, drink and stay in Donegal. Please do ask when you are booking your Donegal tour. You will be travelling in a comfortable 16 seater Mercedes sprinter mini coach.


Tours of East Donegal are typically 3.5 hours to 7 hours depending on what you would like to see. Our qualified tour guides will take you through the scenery in a timely manner spending time looking at key points of attraction like An Grianan of Aileach Ringfort,

Fort Dunree, The Celtic Prayer Garden, Inishowen Peninsula, Dunmore Gardens, Lifford Court House and Fanad Lighthouse.


Grianán of Aileach

A mystical & magical seat of power were once Kings & Queens of Ireland reigned from. The “Grianan of Aileach” is the best known monument in Inishowen & easily one of the greatest in all Ireland. Situated on a hill top 800 feet above sea level the view from Aileach is breathtaking. The glistening waters of Lough Foyle and Lough Swilly are clear as is the form of the entire peninsula. A windy and exposed place, Grianan Fort has been a silent witness to the history of Ireland throughout the ages. The fort was first constructed around 1700 BC (probably with earthen walls), by the Tuatha de Danann. It has been ascertained that it was the Palace of the Northern Princes, from a period long before Christianity (AD 400) up until the 14th century. Legend states that the giants of Inishowen (Princes of Aileach) are lying sleeping but when the sacred sword is removed they will spring to life reclaiming their ancient lands!
