This is the end of the long narrow peninsula that runs south-west from Dunkineely (G768760). To get here, drive west on the N56 from Donegal Town towards Killybegs.
In the locality, you will find the remains of times long gone. Everything from Standing stones to an old castle. From an old Friary, to no less than twelve ring forts.
Drive along the peninsula for approx. 8 kms until you come to the beach. Park the car, and you can walk in either direction. The walk towards the lighthouse is rewarding with magnificent views of Donegal Bay, the islands, the surrounding coastline.
