The Donegal region
Inishowen Peninsula is one of Ireland's treasure spots. The area is full of ancient sites and monuments, pristine sandy beaches, traditional thatched cottages and mountain and cliff scenery. The signposted "Inishowen 100"drive is a circular scenic drive around the peninsula and offers superb opportunities to experience this diverse and exciting terrain.
Derry City (City of Culture2013) is only a 20 minute drive away , visit the famous walled city and it's many attractions including excellent shopping facilities and eating establishments.
Greencastle, the nearest village, is a commercial fishing port and has the National Fisheries College. It has a picturesque harbour area, and there is a ferry service crossing the Foyle on a regular basis, convenient for car trips to the Giants Causeway, Bushmills, Dunluce Castle, and other attractions along the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland.
The village almost certainly got its name from the old castle, which in turn may have got its name from the green freestone with which it was built. The castle, which is now a ruin, was known as the De Burgo Castle, and was built in 1305 as a base to provide a stronghold for Norman power in the North West. It was named "Northburg" and was built on the site of a much older fortress. There is a more modern Martello Fort beside the ruin, built by the British during the Napoleonic Wars to stop a possible French Fleet from invading.
With the decline of the fishing industry, Greencastle has become more of a "holiday village". There has been much building of new homes in recent years. A Maritime Museum and a Planetarium in the village are well worth a visit. There is also a small golf course near the shore. A few km down the road is the larger town of Moville, where one can enjoy a variety of restaurants and pubs.
