Where is it?
The Town of Buncrana (Pop.5000) is situated on the shores of Lough Swilly, on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal - the most northerly county in the Republic of Ireland. It lies on the world renowned Wild Atlantic Way (WAW) drive which terminates at Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point 40 KM away. Every twist and turn on the Inishowen peninsula alone offers spectacular views of dramatic coastlines, tumbling hills and empty pristine sandy beaches.
Buncrana is blessed with beaches, promenade, scenic coastal walks, river parks and most impressively, sunsets. As the shoreline faces westwards toward the hills of Donegal on the opposite side, the setting sun and long northern daylight combine to paint spectacular shadows on Lough Swilly (which translates as ‘lake of shadows’).
This location provides opportunity for water sports, golfing, cycling, hiking, fishing, wildlife observation (the famous Inch Level migratory-bird sanctuary is at the southern end of the lough 10 Km away) and other outdoor pursuits.
The town has every amenity required for your stay: there is a variety of restaurants, pubs for music and craic, nightclubs, a leisure centre, playgrounds, an independent cinema (one of the first and last in the country!). There are supermarkets, chemists, banks, shops and churches. Buncrana is convenient for day trips to the historic city of Derry, the famous Giant’s Causeway and coastal drive, the locations for some Game of Thrones sets, Glenveagh National park in the west of Donegal and the famous Fanad Light House. There is lots more besides. The real adventure however, is exploring and going where the road takes you and the people you meet – the essence of a Donegal holiday.
