A large crowd from across Ireland are expected in Carrigart on Wednesday for a walk organised on behalf of the John Murray radio show on RTE I.

Two buses have been sponsored by McGinley Coaches to ferry walkers from Dublin, while many more are expected to make their own way.

The event is a boost for the local tourist accommodation providers and will also highlight the beauty of an area that holds many attractions for recreational walkers.

The John Murray Show will be broadcast live on Thursday morning (9am) from Arnold’s Hotel in Dunfanaghy.

Donegal Bridgestone Guide 2012

Donegal Bridgestone Guide 2012 – Donegal businesses have featured prominently in this year’s Bridgestone Guide.

Speaking of which, Linsfort Castle B & B, located on the shores of Lough Swilly just outside Buncrana, has been selected for the second year running as one of the 100 Best Places to stay as well.

Owners Alan Rooks and Brigeen Clafferty only got into the B&B business in 2008. Alan says being one of the Bridgestone 100 makes a huge difference. “Up to 2011 our clients were mainly visitors already coming to Inishowen who found us through our web site. However, after getting in the Top 100, we found that quite a number of new customers were actually coming to Linsfort as a destination. Thanks to Bridgestone, I think that we have been able to make a useful contribution to the effort to put Inishowen on the tourist map of Ireland”

John McKenna told the Donegal Democrat: “Donegal’s major strength is consistency. “Places like Rathmullan House, Aroma in Donegal Town and The Mill are models of getting it right every time.
