Carrigart is a small Gaeltacht village on the Rosguill Peninsula of County Donegal. The village is on the R245 route between Letterkenny and Creeslough. Situated as it is at the base of the Rosguill peninsula, in one of the more remote but most scenic parts of the country, the village provides services for a large hinterland, with a supermarket with banking facilities, a post office, a doctor's surgery and a barracks manned part-time by the Garda Síochána. There is also a dive centre in the village as well as a number of pubs. The village enjoys a busy tourist season being both itself a popular destination and also because of it's proximity to the many beaches of nearby Downings. A small town park, Stand Park, was built a number of years ago by the local community and is situated behind the main street and along the shoreline.
