The hub of the Rosses, Dungloe (An Clochán Liath) is a busy if unprepossessing little town with ample services for anyone passing through this spectacular locale. Immortalised in a hit pop song, 'Mary from Dungloe', in the late 1960s, the town celebrates with the 10-day Mary from Dungloe Festival every summer.
An even more famous musical connection is singer Daniel O'Donnell, who was born in Dungloe and is celebrated in the Daniel O'Donnell Visitor Centre.
There's a small tourist office in Ionad Teampall Chróine, a community building housed in an old church.
Fishing for salmon and trout in the River Dungloe and Lough Dungloe is popular; you can get tackle and permits from Bonner's.
For accommodation, your best bet is Radharc an Oileain, a beautiful family-run B&B overlooking the bay.
