Killybegs, Co. Donegal

Killybegs was granted Borough status in 1616 by King James but it looks very much like a late Victorian village built around a good harbour which is now a major fishing port. It is a major centre for the Irish fishing industry and trawlers tie-up here from many foreign ports. The arrival of the fishing fleet and unloading of the catches by the gourmet restaurants of Ireland and of Europe is a sight worth seeing and an experience you will remember. Donegal hand-tufted carpets are manufactured here and adorn Dublin castle, the White House in Washington and the Vatican in Rome.
