Dunlewey or Dún Lúiche, meaning “fort of Lugh”, an ancient Irish god, is a small Gaeltacht village in the Gweedore area of County Donegal.

It sits in the Poisoned Glen, at the foot of Errigal and on the shore of Dunlewey Lough.

It has a tourist centre, called the Lakeside Centre, which offers boat trips of the lake.

Local folklore says that the Poisoned Glen is where Lugh slew Balor, and the glen gets its name because poison seeped from Balor’s ‘evil eye’.
