    We had a short visit to the fort on a visit to Donegal.
    It's not the easiest place to get to, although it is signposted from about 5miles out.
    It's an interesting site with a fairly long history, with most of the exhibition focusing on WW1 and WWII.
    Depending on how long you want to stay you can simply visit the fort or climb to the top of the hill to see the lookout point, old army buildings, and hilltop view (which would be trying on a wet day).

    The paved pathway, mostly level throughout is suitable for a walk rain or shine, for all walkers. Great views over the lough.

    Very peaceful. Great place to unwind and be with nature. Waterfall is lovely but the walk itself is so scenic.

    Peaceful and beautiful
    Perfect for swimming or just strolling
    We always like to walk the dogs here, with plenty of space for them to run around

    Great location, sadly the low cloud restricted the views, but still worthwhile travelling the narrow roads.

    Kinnagoe Beach is truly a little gem & is different from many of the beaches in Donegal in that it's smaller & more sheltered & surrounded by tree lined cliffs. It has very unusual sea worn rock formations, which are well worth exploring. The sand is golden which is typical of the fabulous beaches of Co Donegal. It's about halfway between Greencastle & Ballymagaraghy. Access is limited as the road is extremely steep close to the beach, so campervans beware!!

    We were at wild Ireland nearby, I was saddened by the sight of a few depressed animals so a visit here (removed by guilt) and proved tranquil, uplifting and just lovely. Creative, spiritual and calm. If you are visiting wild Ireland, do not, I repeat do not overlook these lovely gardens. If you are not religious but are spiritual or appreciative of nature’s gifts go here, bees, butterflies, birds, beauty and simple bliss in abundance. Lovely organic greenhouse and farm shop and cafe nearby. Delicious seeded flapjack cake in cafe.

    This is a gorgeous, rugged sea front with easy access by car. The ruins were protected behind fencing, but were lovely to see nonetheless. It is (leashed)dog-friendly and a great quick stop for anyone touring Inishowen.

    Brilliant museum! Such awsome maritime artifacts. Please check this out.
    Oh and the scones in the tea room are worse the visit alone!

    Lovely sheltered beach with a car park close to it. The beach is not overly big but it wasn’t busy (it was raining!) Ideal for younger children wanting sandcastles and paddling fun. The lighthouse is part of the backdrop but you can’t get up close so it’s definitely not worth visiting just for the lighthouse, but if you want a beach this is great.

    It was our day off walking so we sat and relaxed in the sun. Watched dogs chasing the waves, surfers surfing and seabirds diving. Good little coves further on, secluded in lowish season.
