Buncrana, Co. Donegal

Only a short distance from Derry City, BUNCRANA is a popular seaside resort on the eastern shore of Lough Swilly, and is the gateway to the INISHOWEN PENINSULA which extends between Lough Swilly and Lough Foyle and is a favourite destination for golfers and walkers.

It is a beautiful, mainly mountainous area and Ireland's most northerly point, Malin Head, is at its tip; a 100-mile (161 km) circular scenic drive known as the 'Inis Eoghain 100' is signposted around the peninsula and makes a lovely outing on a good day.

There are stopping places en-route McGrory's of Culdaff is often the most convenient and, in Buncrana, The Beach House Bar & Restaurant is an attractive informal restaurant near the ferry which links Buncrana with Rathmullan on the western shore of Lough Swilly in summer.
