The world’s biggest travel guide is warning people coming to Donegal not to drink tap water because of “toxic chemicals.”
The Lonely Planet is the world’s most-read travel guide and sells millions of copies each year.
But the latest edition of Lonely Planet Ireland has warned visitors not to drink water in certain counties in Ireland including Donegal.
The other counties issued with the stark warning include Wicklow, Meath, Mayo, Kerry and Cork.
The book states “The Irish have traditionally always drunk tap water but in recent years have introduced filter systems to combat the presence of potentially toxic chemicals called trihalomethanes in the water supply, which exceeded EU sanctioned levels in various parts of the country including Donegal, Kerry, Cork, Kilkenny City, Waterford, Wicklow, Meath, Mayo, Roscommon and Galway.”
However, in general, the book is very complimentary of Donegal.
It described our county as the “wild child” of Ireland saying it is “home to some of its most ravishingly sublime scenery and beautiful beaches.”
