ABOUT THE AREA The charming village of Burtonport, Co Donegal, nestles in a deep inlet on the north-west coast of Ireland. This attractive fishing village takes its name from Lord Burton Conynham, a wealthy English landowner who played an important part in its development. He established a pier and called it €oeurton€TM Port€. This was eventually shortened to became €oeurtonport€. Unusually for the north west of Ireland, the name was retained over the years, despite the establishment of Independence. Burtonport is the gateway to the island of Aranmore. Daily sailings to and from the island attract a constant flow of visitors throughout the summer months. Every ferry departure is a social event, attracting bustling crowds of locals, visitors, greeters, and curious onlookers. Everything consumed on the island passes through Burtonport Harbour. Its pier fills with boxes and barrels of all shapes and sizes. Box vans and trailers disgorge strangely shaped pieces of machinery and flocks of nervous sheep. The waters of this portion of the Donegal coast, too, boast perfect visibility. They attract diving enthusiasts from all over Europe. Indeed, the coast is speckled with a range of superb dive sites which bring enthusiasts back to Burtonport again and again year after year. Up until recent years Burtonport was a thriving commercial fishing port. The ongoing tightening of fish quotas over the years has, however, reduced the size of the fishing fleet and forced diversification. Now much of the harbour area is being used to support Burtonports growing tourism industry. New facilities are being developed for water sports and sailing enthusiasts. The Burtonport Festival, too, takes place towards the end of July. It is followed by the wonderful €oeary from Dungloe Festival€, a much-loved international event which draws participants from around the globe. The festival runs for ten days with music, dance and traditional entertainment.
