A Recreation Corridor from Donegal's heartland to the Coast

Posted by Leah Fairman on Mar 24, 2021

Establish a networked recreation corridor through the area of scenic beauty from Ballybofey-Stranorlar to Donegal Town, in Co. Donegal. Creating a visitor friendly route between these two key towns in Donegal would
- provide a resource for tourists and residents, encouraging year round wellbeing and outdoor activities
- stimulate small communities and craft businesses along the route
- create a pathway for visitors along the wild atlantic way into the heart of Donegal drawing them further north on their journeys

The Wild Atlantic Way has been brilliant for bringing visitors to the West Coast of Ireland, but areas without the attractions of beaches are losing out as visitors congregate along signature points. Failte Ireland also recognise that the WAW north of Galway is underperforming and attracting fewer visitors than the southern route. this project would increase economic and tourism sustainability for the North West of Ireland.
