Quiet Forum

After recently coming across and posting to this forum I have been watching it with interest. However I am somewhat disappointed to see how quiet it is and how few entries there are. Is this because of the time of year or is this the norm?

danmore, I also think this forum has slowed down a bit. But hey, that's the season. Most people go on holidays in summer so things will pick up again shortly! Keep watching!

Think it is more a reflection of how popular the area is.

I have been looking for a decent guidebook for Donegal and all the main Ireland books only dedicate a minimum amount of space for the area.

If you mean the Donegal forum specifically, I agre with you. It seems to me that many of the overseas visitors to Ireland, who do the majority of the original postings in the Ireland forum, have yet to realise how beautiful and unique Donegal, and indeed the whole of the North West, is. And only a small proportion of overseas visitors venture up there. I and some others have done our best to entice people there, but somehow, probably these potential visitors seem to believe that the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and the Cliffs of Moher are the very best Ireland has to offer. I disagree. Donegal is by far and away the most beautiful county of Ireland (in my view, I know that is arguable). It is also relatively unspoilt and uncommercialised compared with other areas.

A friend and I will be riding through Donegal on horseback for seven days at the end of this month. Once our tour is finalized, I'll definitely be asking for recommendations on pubs to lunch at along our ride!

Shhh, let's keep it a secret!! My trip to Donegal was amazing. It is still untouched by tourism and I felt that I was seeing the real Ireland. There were times when I was driving on the small roads when I wouldn't see another car for such a long time. And there were times I didn't even know where I was. It was all great.

I think slowly it will be discovered. ...but not yet.....whisper.......
