Stranorlar

Starnolar is a small town in the Finn Valley of Co Donegal and is part of the so-called 'Twin Towns' of Stranorlar and Ballybofey. The town is located at the junction of the N15 and N13 national primary roads. It is situated on the banks of the River Finn and while it is smaller than Ballybofey in size it provides all the churches and schools for the area. It is home to two primary schools and two secondary schools, as well as a Catholic and Church of Ireland church. Finn Valley Athletic Club has its track in the town while there is also an 18 hole golf course and game fishing nearby. Neighbouring Ballybofey has most of the main sporting amenities such as Finn Park, home to Finn Harps FC and Seán MacCumhail Park, where Donegal GAA teams play most of their games. Drumboe Woods are the major attraction of Stranorlar. The woods are managed by Coillte and provide walking routes along the banks of the River Finn and the upper woods. Outside the town, a small folly called The Steeple is a popular destination for many walkers. From the top of the tower, on a clear day, the hillfort of The Grianan of Aileach can be seen. There is an interesting raised ring fort at Dunwiley, outside the town. There are numerous guest houses throughout the town and on the main street is Stranorlar's only hotel. Kee's Hotel is a family run three star hotel, first established in the 19th century as a coach house. There are also a number of shops and pubs in the town.
