Donard

Donard / Glen of Imaal is a pretty village at the northern end of Glen of Imaal. The place is associated with Michael Dwyer and the cottage in which he fought the encircling British troops in 1799 and escaped over the snow-covered mountains is situated here.

Donard has 2 pubs and plenty of B&B’s. Its also has a Caravan / Campsite (Moat Farm) in the village and a Hostel in Ballinclea (Mountain Ventures). Donard and Glen of Imaal are excellent bases for Hillwalking being a convenient base to ascend Lugnaquilla, Leinster Highest Mountain and second highest outside of Kerry.

Glen of Imaal is home to the Coolmoney Military range and while caution and planning is necessary walkers are always welcome as even when the range is in use there are plenty of other options for hillwalking.

To check out when the range is in use go to www.mountaineering.ie and click on Access and Conservation.
