Mamore Gap is an area of outstanding beauty in one of the most scenic parts of Donegal. It can be found on the Inishowen Peninsula in the North of the county.
The descent from Mamore Gap provides panoramic views of hills on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. For the more adventurous minded there are paths in the gap which lead onto breath-taking hill walks along the ridges of the Urris Hills, though beware it is a difficult walk and advice should be sought before going up there.
St Eigne’s Well can be found at the top of the gap, it is a holy well which people from all over the world travel to see. For centuries people have been making pilgrimages to Donegal specifically for St Eigne’s Well.
The stone at the well states that St. Eigne was one of the Céile Dé, they were most likely Druids who saw the coming of The Christ Consciousness and are accredited as having preached in both Ireland and Scotland long before the first missionaries.
