Starting with the Johnny Doherty Music and Dancing Festival, which is on in Ardara this weekend. Grab your fiddle or a partner and participate in some lively sessions in and around the town. Musically, that is.

If you manage to withstand the marathon ceilli sessions, stretch your limbs at the Mooathon ‘Cow’ themed marathon event for walkers and runners in Letterkenny this Sunday.

October kicks off in feisty fashion with the annual Donegal Fiddlers weekend  in the Glenties with lessons, sessions and talks for both novices and masters from Oct 4th through  6th.

The same weekend sees some hardy souls baring the elements and walking the hills and coast of Dunfanaghy’s wild and beautiful terrain. To unwind after all that exercise, you can participate in their winter evening combos of bbq and ceilli.

To mark Halloween,  there will be some spooky goings on in Ballyshannon at the Dracufest. To celebrate the centenary of the death of Bram Stoker (creator of Dracula), the town hosts a festival of all things fang-ed with film screenings, talks and of course fancy dress. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

And once you’ve danced, ran, walked all that excess energy, relax in style at the 5 star luxury Solis Lough Eske hotel.
