International Visitors

Lifford Old Courthouse is a great day out during our visit to Co. Donegal. Our indoor activities and year round opening make us a perfect rainy day stop off, particularly outside of the Summer months.

We welcome international visitors regularly, including many who are able to trace their ancestry back to Lifford Courthouse, with their relatives having been sentenced to transportation.
