Plagues and Vikings are among the things that brought it a significant share of notoriety throughout the days gone by. Perhaps the plague entered the country through a ship that docked at the port – it was first made by Viking invaders from the 8th century. Today, the names connected with the town, sited just to Dublin’s south, include the likes of Enya, Van Morrison, and Bono. The town is regarded as the Irish capital city’s affluent satellite.

The Dingle Peninsula’s key town is a fishing harbor located at the rugged Conor Pass’s one end that winds over the land’s mountainous finger, providing some of the most captivating views in Ireland. The area is famous for the Irish culture. The pubs are considered the cultural action’s center, at least in which music is concerned. At the same time, the area’s sea life is another popular attraction with bottlenose dolphins often spotted in the bay as well as an aquarium in town that lets visitors have a better idea of the world below the waves.
As County Donegal’s namesake, sport and culture find their hub at the regional level in Donegal Town. Many smaller amateur clubs intended for sports are present such as Gaelic football and hurling, yet even at the amateur level, the Gaelic sports display a terrific level of power and physical prowess. The early history of the town predates written records – it is, rather, written in the formations of a stone circle which are common in the country’s part. Donegal Castle is located in the town center as well as being near the centerpiece, which many of the pubs and hotels can be found. It is a fantastic base for hikers, too.
