Kilcar

Kilcar is a Gaeltacht village on the R263 regional road in the south west of Co Donegal. It is also a townland of 233 acres. The village itself consists of a main street with a Church at one end and two textile factories at the other end. In between there are a few shops and four pubs. The village has the principal tweed hand weaving facility in Donegal, with a shop Studio Donegal selling high quality tweed products. Kilcar is well known for its tradition in knitting. There is also a producer of seaweed based cosmetic products. Áislann Chill Chartha is a community facility which includes a library, sports hall (basketball and indoor football), a fully equipped fitness suite, computer centre, and small theatre. It also has exhibits based on the history of South West Donegal and usually has a revolving exhibition of historic local photographs. The national school is about 750 meters from the main street and the parish of Kilcar stretches all the way to the river which separates it from the next village, Carrick, which is about 5km away. Muckross, 3km east of the village on the coast road, has a popular beach and is known as a rock climbing destination. The GAA pitch at Towney is located 2 kilometres outside the village on the coast road.
