The Donegal region
Moville enjoys a scenic and strategic location on the western shore of Lough Foyle, about 17 miles from the Historic Walled City of Derry - City of Culture 2013. Its most noted feature is its expansive shore front Green, a large seaside park featuring a bandstand, walking trails, playgrounds and panoramic views eastwards across the waters of the lough to Binevenagh mountain in north Co. Derry. The town itself has a good selection of pubs, restaurants and shops.
Greencastle Maritime Museum is only 3km from Palmtree. It offers something for all the family and puts special emphasis on local themes such as a maritime memorial, local involvement in the Great Wars, the Spanish Armada in the area, and emigration. Inishowen is a golfer's paradise. Greencastle Golf Club is a members owned eighteen hole course on the banks of Lough Foyle. Redcastle Golf Club has 9-hole parkland golf course in a stunning setting along the banks of Lough Foyle.
