Have you decided on your vacation destination for this year yet? It's always such a difficult choice but we've brought you some help with some prize picks from National Geographic's list of the coolest places to visit in 2017.
1. Donegal, Ireland
With a weather-nibbled coast spotted with sea stacks, Blue Flag beaches and offshore islands, Donegal is a land that feels undiscovered. Last summer, scenes for Star Wars: Episode VIII were filmed on the Inishowen Peninsula. But this area of Ireland is also expecting 2017 to be a big year; there’s an array of reasons to visit, from surfing beaches in Magheraroarty and Ballyhiernan Bay to Horn Head — a driving, walking or cycling loop that squeezes the 1,600-mile Wild Atlantic Way into a 4.5-mile nutshell.
Located right next to Donegal castle, the Abbey Hotel is a great base for exploring the town and the amazing surrounding area.
