Diving in the quiet North of Ireland (Donegal) is rough and surprisingly rich in fish and other creatures.

West of North Ireland lies the county Donegal with its mythical atmosphere, its misty mountains, quiet towns, serene lakes and green fields. Its windswept peninsulas, steep cliffs and golden beaches with plenty of water activities have made it one of the most popular holiday destinations in Ireland. Scuba diving is famous around Malin Head, Tory Island and St Johns Point. Divers are blessed with shipwrecks, tales about smugglers and undiscovered treasures.
Natural highlights are the more than 300 meter high Slieve League (Grey Mountain) cliffs and its surroundings. They are said to be the highest in Europe and offer breathtaking views on the rough ocean below, the Blue Stack mountains and the Sligo Mountains. You can visit Donegal Castle and Glenveagh Castle, both excellent preserved and showing you a window in time. Other sights include the forts of the High Kings of Ulster and the fort Grianan Aileach. The north of Ireland is a great destination for divers with a surprisingly rich underwater world.
