The top ten things to do in Donegal this Autumn

Now that the kids are back to school, many familes are already looking ahead to their next break or getaway - and an Autumn Break might be something to consider.

This coming Thursday, the Donegal Democrat will offer a free Autumn Breaks 2018 special supplement. 

This fantastic guide is brought to you by the teams behind 10 of Ireland’s leading local newspapers and websites.

Published free with this week’s Donegal Democrat  - the guide includes a special feature on Donegal - just in case you don't want to travel too far for your break!

Our feature also suggests the top things to do here:

1: Book a few days away in south Donegal for the Donegal Bay and Bluestacks Festival which runs from September 27 to October 7

2: Discover some of the most historic sites like the Grianan of Aileach, Donegal Castle, Doon Well near Termon, Beltany Stone Circle in Raphoe

3: Enjoy the great outdoors, climb up the majestic Errigal mountain, kayak along Gartan lake and don't miss Glenveagh National Heritage Park

4: Get on the crest of a wave on the many superb surfing breaks in Bundoran, Rossnowlagh, Marble Hill, Culdaff, Ballyliffin to name a few

5: Saddle up at an equestrian centre such as Donegal Equestrian Centre, Bundoran, Dunfanaghy Stables Ltd or Tullagh Bay in Clonmany

Glencolmcille Folk Village

6: You watched the Irish Golf Open, so why not try the real thing at Ballyliffin GC or try Murvagh, Portnoo, Bundoran and many more

7: Around every corner you will find a pub where the art of conversation comes naturally - visit Leo’s in Meenaleck, the home of Clannad

8: The tradition of hand weaving and tweed is synonymous with Donegal - drop into Magee of Donegal or the many outlets around Ardara

9: Glencolmcille boasts one of the most stunning folk villages in the country; go back in time and learn so much about old customs and skills
