The Province of Ulster region
The Inishowen Peninsula is in the most northerly part of Donegal. The fantastic scenery, the ever changing skies and their reflection on the water are a constant delight to watch. The gentle hills and the rugged mountains are a pleasure for hill-walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. A great variety of beautiful sandy beaches for water sports and family fun.
Inishowen is also very convenient for the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland where there are plenty of other attractions - the Giant's Causeway, Downhill Strand (the longest beach in Europe), Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, and the pretty seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart. A ferry takes you across the mouth of Lough Foyle (a 15 minute journey) and then you're well on your way to the spectacular scenery of the Antrim Coast
Donegal has no less than 11 Blue Flag standard beaches and those at Culdaff, Kinnagoe Bay and Lisfannon on Inishowen are examples of some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Ireland.
In the immediate vicinity you'll find Big White Bay our very own Blue Flag beach which is a short walk from the house. There is also a local pub 'Michael John's which is a five minute walk form the house.
