Located on the rushing waters of the River Finn, Ballybofey has more areas of natural beauty to choose from than you could possibly hope for. Twinned with the nearby town of Stranorlar, a flight to Ballybofey guarantees a wonderful countryside getaway.
Head out hiking in the nearby Bluestack Mountains, explore the Drumboe Woods, take a picturesque walk around Lough Trusk or play a round of golf in the most delightful setting. With an arts centre, a number of great eateries and the region’s most popular shopping centre too, booking a flight to Ballybofey is sure to make your Irish countryside retreat an unforgettable one.
You have two options when booking flights to Ballybofey. The first is to fly to the City of Derry Airport, located on the north coast of Ireland. The City of Derry Airport is situated about 40 miles away, which is just over an hour’s drive with normal traffic. The second option is to book a flight to Donegal Airport, situated about the same distance away from the town, but to the south of the county.
Since both Derry and Donegal airports are about the same distance from Ballybofey (in terms of both mileage and driving time) the deciding factor will really be which destination you want to fly from. Be aware that both airports are quite small. The City of Derry Airport serves one airline, with flights to and from London Stansted Airport, Liverpool and Glasgow International. Donegal Airport also serves one airline and receives flights from Dublin and Glasgow International Airport only. As such, you may even choose to book a flight to Dublin first, and then hop on a plane to Donegal to make the journey a little easier.
As Ballybofey is remotely located, your best bet for travelling here after your flight arrives is by car. Fortunately, you can reserve a rental car with Expedia online, and it will be waiting for you once you arrive at either Donegal or Derry airport. Derry is 42 miles away, an hour’s drive from Ballybofey, either via the N13 road, or via the N15 and A2. Donegal is about 38 miles to the south of the town, and is also just over an hour’s drive, via the R252 road. If you want to make the most of the Irish countryside, you could also take the more scenic route along the R251 road.
Once your flight to Ballybofey arrives, why not head out and grab a bite? Here you can eat out in a number places, whether you’re after a hearty and simple meal, a Chinese takeaway, or a posh dinner and an Irish coffee in an exceptional hotel restaurant.
With two airports just a short distance away, delight yourself with the ultimate countryside retreat. Search online and book flights to Ballybofey today.
