Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal

Many people will have a soft spot for this traditional holiday area, often recalling family holidays spent in the area on Killyhoey Beach. The beach features on many of the 18 holes at the scenic Dunfanaghy Golf Club. An ideal base for touring Horn Head and the northern peninsulas. "McSwiney's Gun" is a natural blow hole which gives a loud report at certain conditions of the tide. While in the area the Dunfanaghy Workhouse Visitor Centre (074 913 6504) is worth a visit, it is a famine centre in the town that remembers the terrible 19th century famine which ravaged Ireland. The only place in Ireland where the corncrake can be heard in its natural habitat, Dunfanaghy is also a major centre for brown trout anglers and special interest holidays.
