One of the best things about Donegal is the wide choice of activities that it has to offer. Whether it is sampling the world famous craic and hospitality in the local pubs and restaurants, or walking on the numerous unspoilt beaches, we can guarantee that there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Atlantic Drive, a spectacular road around the Rosguill Peninsuala, provides breathtaking views of the classic, rugged Donegal coastline, facing onto the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Drive itself is approx. 12km long and is quite simply a must to see and do when staying in this part of Donegal.

Glenveagh Nartional Park is located in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains and is a remote and beautiful wilderness of rugged mountains, deep glens and pristine lakes. The park is home to Glenveagh Castle , a fine Victorian castle, along with the peaks of the two highest mountains in Donegal, namely Errigal and Slieve Slaght. A trip to Glenveagh is is quite simply a great family day out and there are fantastic organised, outdoor activities for the children during the summer months.

The nearby village of Dunfanaghy offers numerous craft shops, art galleries and coffee shops.

Ards Forest Park and Friary, located on the main road between Creeslough and Dunfanaghy, is another popular tourist destination.


There are two superb championship golf links courses at the world renowned Rosapenna Golf Club in Downings. The Old Tom Morris Links has been attracting golfers from all over the world for over 100 years and with the addition of the magnificent Sandy Hills Links, Rosapenna is set to become one of the top links courses in the world. Rosapenna is just a short drive from the holiday home.

Downings offers 2 fabulous beaches, one of which is recognised as a EU Blue Flag beach, ideal for children as the water is very shallow. Numerous caves and rock pools are just waiting to be explored and both beaches are a short walk from the house.
