About Killybegs

Recognised around the world for its fresh catch, mountainous landscapes and gleaming coastal waters, the fishing town of Killybegs has became the favoured port for the export of some of Ireland’s finest produce.


In recent years, however, the town has emerged as a cultural hub in the southern coast of Donegal thanks to its rich heritage, outstanding beauty and welcoming local community.


Located in the beating heart of Donegal’s Wild Atlantic Way, the historic port town offers an unforgettable seaside getaway for families, food lovers, festival-goers and everything in between.


Organise bespoke day trip itineraries at the Killybegs Information Centre, where you will be greeted by helpful staff offering a wealth of advice on the heritage, tours and attractions on offer in Ulster’s hidden emerald gem.

Killybegs offers more than a tourism experience: the town is also home to a campus of the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, specialising in tourism and hospitality. With several building spread across the campus, LYIT continues to boost the skills of Ireland's youth, driving further wealth and knowledge into the growing economy of the town.
