Hey Robert. Donegal Castle is pretty much the top attraction in Donegal Town. Dating back almost one thousand years, this castle has seen it's share of action, having been partially destroyed and rebuilt several times. In ancient times it was perhaps the best fortified place in Ireland, and the stronghold for the O'Donnell clan whom controlled much of the land around here. Make sure you check it out and have fun in Ireland!
