Donegal Global Irish Festival

Diaspora Event

Donegal County Council invites members of our emigrant family in Scotland to re-engage with their home county through a unique weekend of traditional music, heritage, history and social activities.

Event Info and Itinerary

A special genealogy workshop will be hosted in the Maghery Community Centre right at the edge of the Wild Atlantic Way. So, if you are curious about your own connection with Donegal or Ireland generally, or you simply want to join the craic for what promises to be a very memorable weekend, we will be delighted to look after you!

The event will include guided tours of West Donegal with options like island hopping to Arranmore Island, or retracing the footsteps of the herring-gutters through talks and discussions. Saturday evening dinner will be followed by an exclusive music performance with Scottish and Irish award winning fiddle players - a session not to be missed!
