Ireland’s hidden gem

Q: What do Luke Skywalker and Prince Charles have in common?

A: They were both captivated by the stunning natural beauty of County Donegal in 2016!

Last May, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall paid an enjoyable royal visit to some of Donegal’s tourist attractions. Meanwhile, actor Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, was filming on location in the rugged beauty of the Inishowen Peninsula, near Ireland’s most northerly point at Malin Head.
