Donegal Airport came out on top of the list thanks to the stunning scenery such as a beautiful coastline and towering mountains.

PrivateFly said of Donegal airport: “The view is spectacular! Mountains on one side and a beautiful rugged coastline dotted with islands and golden sandy beaches running adjacent to the runway.

“The most beautiful scenery I ever saw, with the beach on one side with crystal clear water and Mount Errigal standing tall on the other side.
