Donegal Bay is an inlet in the northwest of Ireland. Three counties – Donegal to the north and west, Leitrim and Sligo to the south – have shorelines on the bay, which is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. The town of Donegal and the River Eske lie at the head of the bay.

Donegal Bay was also the site of the assassination of Earl Mountbatten of Burma, whose unguarded boat was attacked with an explosive by terrorists of the Irish Republican Army in 1979.
