The P&O Cruise ship, “Oriana”, which brought 1,600 passengers to Killybegs in June 2015, will be making a return visit to the town, it has been confirmed. The 69,000 ton vessel was the largest cruise ship to visit Killybegs to date when she made her first visit.

Commenting on the fact that the Oriana is one of four ships already confirmed for 2017, Anne Dorrian of the Killybegs Information Centre, said: “We are delighted with this news. The whole town made a great effort last year to welcome the first visits by P&O ships, Oriana and Adonia, and it is clear that all that hard work was appreciated.” According to unofficial reports, every business in town - and several in Donegal Town - did well out of the P&O visits and Killybegs International Carpet Making and Fishing Centre was never so busy.
