The town takes its name from the stepping stones which crossed the river in the town before the bridge was built in the 19th century.

Dungloe is a popular shopping centre for the people of the Rosses and is home to the famous 'Mary from Dungloe' contest which celebrates the song of the same name and is very popular with summer visitors.
