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.

“There is nowhere as lovely as the wild rugged beauty of unspoiled Donegal.”
