Glencolmcille is a small town on the North West coast of Ireland in County Donegal. Situated in a wide valley on the coast, the town is a good destination for travellers who really want to get away from it all. It is still an Irish speaking community though this is on the way out.
With a population of a few hundred, the town is visited by many due to the towns association to St. Columba, who worshiped at the small church in town. Hence the name, "Glen of St. Colmcille."
The rolling grass covered hills of the area are a hiker's delight and the area attracts many backpackers. The town provides a very pleasant place to rest and relax between exploring the vast country side. At the same time, the quiet nature of the place is perfect for those who just want to escape while staying at a local B&B.
The village also is referred to as Glencolumbcille & Glencolumkille in some books and maps.
