Ardara

Ardara is a small town in the south west Co Donegal. It is located on the N56 and R261 roads. The town sits on the river Owentocker and is roughly halfway between Dungloe and Killybegs. Some of the main scenic points near the town are the Glengesh Pass, the Maghera Falls and the views out over the Atlantic from Loughros Point. A very successful walking festival takes place in Ardara each March with people coming from all over the world. The town also hosts the Cup of Tae Trad Music Festival each May. There are a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants in the town. Just outside Ardara is the Maghera Caves which hold a history of their own. It is said that during penal times local people would hide in these caves to avoid being killed by invading forces. The beautiful waterfall of Eas a' Ranca, otherwise known as Assaranca Waterfall, is also nearby. There are a number of schools in the area, including the Donegal School of Traditional Irish Music.
