Written answers (Question to Public)

The most recent visitor numbers available are for 2018. Visitor numbers are not available for all OPW sites that are open to the public, only those which have either a guide service or a passive pedestrian counter. At Doe Castle and the Grianán of Aileach visitor numbers are recorded by passive counter. There is a guide service at Donegal Castle, the Glebe Gallery and Newmills and visitor numbers at these sites refer to ticketed visitors.
