About the location


Teelin 2 miles; Killybegs 10 miles.

Carrick is often referred to as the gateway village to the majestic Slieve League cliffs, is situated in South West Donegal. This small vibrant village is popular with international visitors throughout the year. Carrick has a rich culture, and its residents pride themselves on the stunning scenery and landscapes in the locality. The village is the perfect base for hill walkers and hikers of all ages and abilities. A short drive takes you to the cliffs at Slieve League which at 601m high are one of the highest marine cliffs in Europe with truly breathtaking views from the summit. Just a short drive away is the village of Teelin, once Ireland’s main fishing port, but now that title has been awarded to the town of Killybegs just a little further afield. Here you will find some of Donegal’s best seafood, which should only be washed down with a pint of Guinness! Carrick is the perfect base for touring this county with the historic village of Glencolumbkille only a 10 minute drive away and a little further takes you to Adara. Carrick also has many beaches within close proximity, as well as the beautiful Glen River which offers fishing and waterfalls. The unusual coastline, formed by round white stones at the coast of Port, is a beautiful attraction, and you can also climb the 152 steps to the Silver Strand at Malin Beag.
