BEACHES

The closest beach for swimming is a 10-15 minute walk along a country road.  It is only about 2 minutes in the car (0.7 of a mile).  Remember though that the road is downhill to the beach from the cottages but the way back is uphill so you may be glad of your car at the end of a long and tiring day playing on the beach.

Tra Mor beach is a mile away and is perfect for all watersports.

Downings is a picturesque fishing port, famous for the production of traditional Donegal tweed.  The cottages are located in the heart of the Rosapenna Golf Resort.  The team at Downings Coastguard Cottages can arrange tee times and preferential green fees at the Rosapenna Golf Links.  Aside from golf, an excellent equestrian centre and a modern leisure centre are nearby.

The peninsulas in this lovely corner of Donegal offer spectacular drives and walks, including the exciting Atlantic Drive which starts in Downings. Medieval Doe Castle, Ards Forest Park and Glenveagh National Park and Castle are only minutes away by car.
