LOCATION Co. Donegal is one of the most beautiful counties of Ireland, offering unrivalled scenery with its many spectacular land and seascapes. The Atlantic shoreline is etched with a multitude of beautiful bays and glorious sandy beaches. Overlooking much of this coastline are the rugged mountains and hills, stretching from the unique Mount Errigal in the north of the county, to the foreboding beauty of the aptly named Blue Stack Mountains in the south. Donegal Bay is an inlet (or bay) in the Northwest of Ireland. Three counties - Donegal to the north and west, Leitrim and Sligo to the south - have shorelines on the bay, which is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. The town of Donegal and the River Eske lie at the head of the bay. Donegal Bay's beaches have some of Europe's finest surfing, caused by a combination by a direct west-facing location and the funnel-shape of Donegal Bay (the westerlies of the Atlantic Ocean get funnelled into a relatively small area, which increases the size of the swell). Rossnowlagh and Bundoran are recognised by the European surfing community as among Ireland's finest surf beaches with good facilities and excellent water quality.
