Donegal stag Weekends


History & Culture:

The origin of the name...

Read more

egal comes from the arrival of the Celts and their fort-building endeavours, the origins of the county's Irish name, Dun nanGall (Fort of the Foreigner). Donegal is covered with pre-Christian tombs and other forts dating back as much as 900 years. The Partition of Ireland in the early 1920s had a massive impact on County Donegal. Partition meant Donegal was cut off from Derry, which had acted for centuries as the county's main port, transport hub and financial centre. Partition also meant that Donegal was now almost entirely cut off from the rest of the jurisdiction in which it now found itself, the Irish Free State, which in April 1949 became the Republic of Ireland.


Famous for:


Donegal's Atlantic coast is considered to be some of the best surfing locations in Ireland. Bundoran is locate in the south of the county and is a very popular surfing destination; in 2012 the National Geographic magazine listed the seaside town as one of the World's Top 20 Surf Towns. The Donegal Gaeltacht (Irish language speaking areas) is the second-largest in the country. Rory Gallagher is from the town of Ballyshannon. The Slieve League cliffs are 6th, in the highest sea cliffs of Europe, while Malin Head is the most northerly point of Ireland.


Travel info:


County Donegal is located between both Donegal Airport, located in the west direction of the town and by City of Derry Airport which is located in Eglinton to the east of the town. The nearest main international airport to Donegal is Belfast International Airport, which is located at Aldergrove, near Antrim Town which is around 57 miles from Derry City and 79 miles from Letterkenny.


Stag Ideas:


While most stag parties tend to revolve around spending time in the pubs at night here's a few ideas of other activities to be tried during the day. Donegal is an ideal location for stag parties that enjoy the adventures of the outdoors, with beautiful scenery, imposing mountains, glorious beaches ideal for surfing and other water activities. In 2012 the National Geographic magazine listed the seaside town of Bundoran as one of the World's Top 20 Surf Towns. For those who fancy trying their hand at learning something new why not try a cookery class. If the weather is good why not hire out bikes and take in some of Donegal's beautiful scenery including the Inishowen Peninsula.


Night Life:


Donegal has plenty of watering holes on offer and as you wander around the city there will be a spot that fits your tastes on your weekend of party. The following are just a few examples of bars/ nightclubs in Donegal. At Malin Head on the Inishowen peninsula is Farren's bar, holds the claim to being Ireland's most Northernmost pub in Ireland and a typical Irish countryside pub. The Reveller Bar located in the centre of Donegal town is the place to be for live bands on a Saturday, DJ's on Sunday nights. The Pulse nightclub is situated in the heart of Letterkenny and is the place to be on a Monday, Thursday or Saturday night. The Pulse nightclub is made up of 2 levels; upstairs with live bands and DJ sets to down stairs for International DJ's and guest star appearances.
