The 10 day festival encompasses a variety of events allowing visitors and natives alike to sample Ireland's culture, traditions, quality music and entertainment. The programme is kind to family activities and covers a range of sports from Watersports to Gaelic football La Gaelach (Thursday 30th) is the most popular day when on street traditional Irish music and Ceili are paramount.
There are also displays of seafood and arts & crafts. Sunday is carnival day when thousand flock to the street to see a vast display of street entertainers, marching bands, floats and carnival groups. You will also see the crowning of the Mary from Dungloe.
This walk forms part of Sli na Rossan (National Waymarked Way) but is an excellent short walk on its own. Shortly after leaving the beach/car park you are in quiet countryside with excellent views over the Rosses and out towards Aranmore Island.

Rosses Anglers Association
The Rosses Anglers Association has fishing on over 130 lakes in West Donegal. The town of Dungloe is the centre from which the angler makes his way to fish the various Loughs. These lakes hold salmon, sea trout and brown trout and all of them are within a five mile radius of the town. Pemits to fish and boats can be arranged. A detailed angling map and guide is available.
