Bunbeg, Co. Donegal

Bunbeg or An Bun Beag is a small village with a pretty harbour, is sheltered by cliffs at the mouth of the Clady River, 6km (4 miles) west of Gweedore Co Donegal. It is officially the smallest townland in Gweedore, but today the name Bunbeg is used to describe a large region of the parish. It is situated between Derrybeg and Dore and is home to many of Gweedore's amenities and businesses.

There is good bathing in the open sea or at Magheraclogher Strand, an extensive sandy beach about 1km (a half-mile) from the village. This area is also a haven for walkers and nature lovers.

Excursions can be made by boat to Gola, Innishinny and other islands, all of which have interesting rock and cliff scenery.
