Redcastle enjoys a scenic and strategic location on the western shore of Lough Foyle, about 10 miles from the Historic Walled City of Derry. There are panoramic views eastwards across the waters of the lough to Binevenagh mountain in north Co. Derry.
A short drive northwards takes you to the seaside village of Moville. A little beyond that is the fishing village of Greencastle. Here you can catch the car ferry for the pleasant crossing to Magilligan on the eastern bank. From here you can explore the coastline of Northen Ireland and pay a visit to the Giant's Causeway.
Golf: Inishowen is a golfer's paradise. Redcastle Golf Club has 9-hole parkland golf course in a stunning setting along the banks of Lough Foyle. Ballyliffin Golf Club has a 36 hole course and an ultra modern clubhouse overlooking both courses and the spectacular sunsets over Pollan Bay. There is also an 18 hole links golf course at Greencastle, just 5 miles away.
Take a walk from the deck area, down the wooden steps to the seashore and explore the rockpools at low tide. Further along you'll find the ruins of the old "Red Castle" and by way of contrast, the modern, 4 star Carlton Redcastle Hotel with its parkland golf course. Adjacent to the hotel you'll find Leisureland - an adventure indoor playground for kids with ball pool, dodgems etc.
