Carrick Village is close to the cliffs of Slieve League and is in the Parish of Glencolmcille is an ideal location to stay and enjoy the wide range of attractions to be found in the area.
Carrick is the largest village in the Parish of Glencolmcille. A single street, its growth owes much to an early nineteenth century landlord's desire to keep a 'highland' summer house in the area.
Carrick developed into an important commercial centre particularly for the knitting industry. Merchants issued yarn to women to knit into socks. At its peak in the early twentieth century, women of all ages knitted socks and their income was a central part of most domestic budgets. Donegal knitted garments still remain popular today as both fashion items and casual-wear.
