The biggest fishing port in Ireland

Killybegs is a town in Donegal, Ireland located close to the Sleave League Cliffs. The town acts as the biggest fishing port in the whole island and is located at the base of mountains and has spectacular views.


As many port towns in Ireland and overall Europe, Killybegs is full of history. For instance, in 1588, it was the last port of call for La Girona, a Spanish vessel which was in the harbour when the Armada took the Irish coast during Spain’s war with England.


During the summer, a festival to celebrate the fish catches takes place here.
