We visited the Heritage Centre on several occasions while on holiday in the Ardara area. Our favourite food there was their excellent seafood chowder. We did not experience any of the flies that "annechaircovers" had to contend with during her visit but maybe the flies...More

Going through the tiny tourism office you enter the Heritage Centre which seems to consist of loads of display boards showing random photos of people with rather confusing headings and information about them. I couldn't quite work out how the different boards / photos linked...More

The free Heritage center shares its space with the tourist office and a cafe...and doubles as the towns community center. If you can get a local to explain and expand on the home-made dioramas and posters, it is a sweet slice of north-Ireland from the...More

An interesting, but sparsely "furnished" centre. Consists mainly of old (enlarged, B&W) photographs of local weavers and their specialist skills; some depicting life in Ardara at the beginning of the 1900's. It also has an information centre with "tourist leaflets" and maps of Ardara, Donegal...More

The center seemed deserted and a bit tired, but I loved the treats at Sheila's which adjoins the center. It was a folksy kind of place....
