Ardara, from the Irish “Ard an Rátha” meaning “Height of the Fort”, is a small town in County Donegal, located along the Wild Atlantic Way.

The village sits on the neck of three peninsulas on the stunning south west coast of Donegal.

Some of the main scenic points near the town are the stunning Glengesh Pass, the Maghera Caves and Waterfall, and the views out over the Atlantic from Loughros Point.

The Bluestack Trail or Slí Cholmcille (The Colmcille Way) are two challenging 65km trails showcasing what Ardara and its environs have to offer.

In 2012, The Irish Times named it the best village in which to live in Ireland.
