Our Cultural & Heritage Mini-Tour

We offer a mini cultural and heritage tour with our Paddle, Reef and Peak Tours – it is also offered with all our specials. The mini-tour is a great way to really get to know the local area, have fun and find out a little bit about Irish history and culture. It is included in the price of these tours and there is no extra cost.

The mini-tour takes up an afternoon and visits some of the north-west coast’s most picturesque locations, includes historical sights and information and concludes at the Donegal Brewing Company – the North West’s award-winning craft beer makers.
