Visit the Carpet Factory which once designed, dyed and thread wool by hand-knotters, and produced world-class Donegal Carpets that can still be seen in such places as Dublin Castle, The Oval Room at the White House, the Vatican, Buckingham Palace, stately homes, and foreign embassies throughout the globe.

See the largest hand-knotted loom in the world, view live demonstrations of how hand-knotting is done, and also have the opportunity to test your own skills at the loom.

Here in Killybegs one can see the largest fishing fleet in Ireland which was once the home port of the Atlantic Dawn, which was one of the largest fishing vessels in the world. Step into the boots of a fisherman via the Bridge Simulator replica of a boat wheelhouse, and experience the virtual reality of the ocean.
