National Heritage Week is coordinated by The Heritage Council & Local Authority Heritage Officers with support from Fáilte Ireland. County Donegal has become one of the places to be during ‘Heritage Week’.
The County Donegal Heritage Office, Cultural Services in association with The Heritage Council has produced a County Donegal Heritage Week Event Guide every year since 2004. County Donegal has become one of the places to be during ‘National Heritage Week’ thanks to all the events that heritage centres, museums, heritage organisations, community groups and individuals organise (often on a voluntary basis).
Our heritage reinforces our sense of place and refines our sense of identity. The contribution that heritage makes to training/educational oportunities, attracts tourists and generates revenue. There is a selection of 85 events taking place for ‘National Heritage Week’ in County Donegal and its environs, about 20 of which are organised by or hosted by Cultural Services, Donegal County Council. Heritage Week is the ideal time to re-explore our heritage and remember that County Donegal has many more heritage sites and museums/heritage centres that are open during National Heritage Week so there should be events to suit everyone.
Please wear appropriate footwear for outdoor events.
