  • Doe Castle is 10 km south off the road to Letterkenny. Grounds open daily, castle interior only in summer.



There is a golf course cloose to the village, which welcomes non-members and has a clubhouse and bar.


The old workhouse has been turned into a museum to commemorate the victims of the Great Famine (1845 to 1847).

  • Arnold's Hotel. A bit rural, good location though. 
  • Shandon. Really nice and good value, a short drive out.
