Ballybofey and Stranorlar offers a rare shopping experience. As long established Donegal towns, there is a sense of history, character and community. You may expect the charm of small local businesses, which are to be found. But what is surprising is that the more extensive retail shopping experience is also catered for. Most notably, McElhinney’s Department Store, awarded ‘Ireland’s Retail Store of the Year 2012′. With 90,000sq feet, McElhinney’s offers a vast shopping experience under one roof. From cosmetics to bridal, clothing to gifts, sport to jewellery and so much more. Committed to bringing the latest in brands and Designers, and an exceptional level of customer service. There are few that can rival McElhinney’s in offering such a complete shopping experience.

It is this combination of small traditional businesses and the larger stores that makes the Twin towns so unique, friendly and rewarding for shoppers.
