Rossnowlagh, Co. Donegal
Rossnowlagh is one of Ireland's - and Europes's - best surfing beaches. As it faces westwards into the Atlantic Ocean, and the fact that Donegal Bay's funnel shape increases the speed and size of the rollers, Rossnowlagh, especially in winter, has some huge waves and has been known to have rollers up to 20ft high. The beach is also very popular for swimmers and sailing and has life guards.
To the south-west stands the ruined Kilbarron Castle and there are cliffs on the way to Kildoney Point. A modern Franciscan Friary is located here where visitors are welcome to walk in the beautifully laid out grounds, reflect in the delightful garden, or relax with a cup of tea in the tearoom. A viewpoint at the western end of the grounds overlooks the broad expanse of Rossnowlagh beach. The Donegal History of Society's Museum is housed here and is open to the public all year.
