Dunkineely, Co. Donegal

Dunkineely is a small single street village village on the northern shore of Donegal Bay in County Donegal. It is situated approximately 19km (12 miles) from the town of Donegal and 8km (5 miles) from Killybegs. Dunkineely is the larger of two villages in the parish of Killaghtee, the other being Bruckless.

There is a dún (fort) on the edge of the village from which Dunkineely derives its name. The village lies at the top of St John's Point, a narrow peninsula rich in wildlife that juts 11km (seven miles) into Donegal Bay, which boasts beautiful scenery and is a world renowned diving site.
