HIDDEN GEMS ON THE EDGE BUS TOUR

THE HIDDEN GEMS ON THE EDGE BUS TOUR


Silver Strand, Malinbeg ~ One of the stop offs on the tour

I have just been speaking to a lady in Killybegs and she told me of new bus tour just starting there. The tour goes out 5 days a week (Sunday and Monday excluded) and leaves Killybegs at 11 am, which ties in with the bus to Killybegs from Donegal Town (and Dunkineely) which arrives into Killybegs at 10.15 am allowing plenty of time to buy tickets for the tour.

The tour takes the coast road from Killybegs and stops off at various scenic points along the way to allow photographs to be taken. The tour visits Muckross, the Silver Strand, Carrick, Glencolmcille (stopping there for a break) and on to Sliabh Liag. The entire tour takes around 4 and a half hours, arriving back in Killybegs at approximately 3.30 pm. The fare is €20 per adult, reduced rate for children and concession rates can be arranged for large groups.

To enquire/book, ring the Killybegs Tourist Office on 074-9732346 or email them at killybegstourism@gmail.com

What an excellent idea and well done to the orgainisers of the tour.

What a great way to see the countryside and the price is pretty good too!

It's a great idea Deb and I certainly hope to take the trip myself very soon. Of course we've done it by car ourselves but I am interested to see how they do the trip so I can write more about it.

It's great to see people doing new things to help tourists see our great county.
