Over 800 people die by suicide in Ireland each year. Unfortunately, Co Donegal has it’s fair share of these tragedies.
Smugglers Creek is pleased to support Cycle Against Suicide 2018, which aims to get the message that ‘It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help’ across!
We are looking forward to the Cyclists from Cycle Against Suicide coming to stay this Thursday, 3rd May.

Thank you so much for all of our creative friends who made such an effort to take part in the 2017 Halloween Fancy Dress Party at Smugglers Creek last night. Congratulations to the Winning Team who scooped a Celebratory Bottle of Prosecco which I believe they enjoyed very much!! It was another great evening of entertainment performed by Phoenix & Co! For those of you who missed it, here are some photos to give you some ideas the mighty craic we had. Hope to see you next year!
Congratulations to Smugglers’ Chef Sinead Morrow who scooped a Silver Award at this year’s a “Passion to Inspire” Cooking Competition at the Taste of Donegal Food Festival 2017.
