Various locations

Take advantage of the fabulous Free Wednesdays’ scheme run by Ireland’s Office of Public Works (OPW). Under this scheme, landmark places like Donegal Castle in Donegal Town and the Glebe Gallery in Church Hill are free to public on Wednesdays.

Donegal Castle was built by the O’Donnell chieftain in the 15th century, beside the River Eske.  It is furnished throughout and includes Persian rugs and French tapestries. Information panels chronicle the history of the Castle owners from the O’Donnell chieftains to the Brooke family. Limited access for people with disabilities to the ground floor. Find out more about it here.

The Glebe Gallery is an 1828 Regency House set in woodland gardens, and decorated with William Morris textiles, and Islamic and Japanese art. The collection includes 300 works by leading 20th century artists such as Picasso, Kokoshka as well as Irish and Italian artists. Find out more about the gallery here.
