Donard is a historic settlement located in West Wicklow. Its identity and sense of place is very much informed by its strong heritage. The historic centre includes the remains of a monastic site, parts of a motte-and-bailey, the triangular green and nineteenth century architecture. It has a range of commercial and community facilities and provides services to a wider rural catchment than the town itself and it is therefore important that it remains viable. The land zoned in the current County Development Plan has potential to accommodate approximately 37 residential units.
