Killybegs is one of Ireland's major fishing harbours. It is a bustling town where local and foreign ships tower over the quayside. A borough as long ago as 1616, the harbour was recorded a century earlier than that. Saint Catherines Church dates back to the 1840's. Attached to the eall is a 16th century tomb slab, probably one of the MacSweeney family. Drumanoo head 5km away is an excellent viewpoint with plenty of opportunity for walks. The newly refurbished Bayview Hotel offers first class accommodation and faire, while the Cope House offers the best of guesthouse accommodation. An excellent place to base yourself while touring the south-west of Donegal.
