About the neighbourhood
North Donegal is a region of inlets and peninsulas. The fishing village of Downings is located on Rosguill Peninsula home to the Atlantic drive, a coastal route which follows a stunning scenic road around the peninsula. The views north over the Atlantic and westward towards Horn Head will live in the memory.

The village itself boasts a sandy beach sheltered from the Atlantic which slopes gently providing an ideal safe environment for children. The beach has a segregated area for water sports.

So what can you do in and around Downings?

GOLF - at the links of Rosapenna, choose from the Old course designed by no less a man than old Tom Morris himself or the newer Sandy Hills ranked 17th in Ireland (both 5mins), or cross the new bridge linking Rosguill to Fanad penninsula to Portsalon (...
