The Daniel O'Donnell Visitor Centre, Main Street, Dungloe
In the same building as the bistro and the connected Stepping Stone Bar, you can pay homage to one of Donegal's (and Ireland's) best exports, the singer Daniel O'Donnell. This guy started singing before most of you were born. The fact that he's still going speaks volumes of his decent lifestyle (taking tea rather than drugs) and being nice to everybody along the way. The tour will just cost you 5 euro, open from 10 to 5. The staff here and in the bistro follow Daniel's example of being nice.
