Welcome to Kilcar

Located in a beautiful part of South-West Donegal, between Ireland’s premier fishing port of Killybegs and majestic Slieve League and the parish of Glencolmcille. To the north east we are separated from Ardara by the spectacular Glengesh Pass, one of the most photographed views in Ireland.

Kilcar is the gateway to the Donegal Gaeltacht, situated between mountain and sea – a great centre for both activity and relaxation, offering the best in culture and tradition with modern amenities.

The area around Kilcar offers panoramic seascapes, unspoilt beaches, hills and mountains affording magnificent views and superb walks, impressive megalithic tombs and historic sites largely unknown outside the area; traditional crafts like knitting and weaving; a vibrant interest in Irish Traditional music, lively pubs, and a friendly and welcoming people.
