Donegal, Ireland Cruise Port, 2024, 2025 and 2026 Cruises to Donegal, Ireland | The Cruise Web

Donegal, Ireland Cruise Port

Located in the Donegal County, Donegal is a small town in Ulster, Ireland. It sits at the mouth of River Eske and Donegal Bay and is the most mountainous county in the region. It’s surrounded by two sets of low mountain ranges: the Derryveagh Mountains in the north, and Black Stack Mountains to the south, which are affectionately known as the Croaghs in Irish Gaelic. Because of its bayside location there are many sandy beaches that boast excellent surfing conditions and are great places to unwind by sunbathing, swimming, and diving. The numerous hotels cater to travelers and offer amenities such as outdoor swimming pools, spas, movie theaters, and very large shopping centers. The town has both a regional and local newspaper, plus the local radio station, Ocean FM, has one of its three stations in the center of town.


  • Discover some innovative 21st-century contemporary Irish arts and crafts at the Art House. The operators aim to showcase the newest and best art of the Wild Atlantic Way.
  • Take a trek to Glenveagh National Park for pristine, unadulterated nature as well as a well-preserved, visitor-ready castle in the park’s center.
  • For a tranquil and rewarding drive or ride through the countryside, head to Hornhead Loop. View the spectacular cliffs, seascapes, and crashing waves on your journey that eventually ends at a carpark that offers one of the most breathtaking views of the area.
  • For some nice quiet moments, take a trip to Silver Strand Beach. This pristine beach is secluded enough for a semi-private experience, but visible enough for a lovely bed and breakfast to be located at the end of a nearby rural road.
