A drive on Donegal's Fanad Head peninsula
A drive on Donegal's Fanad Head peninsula
On the north coast of Donegal, take a drive around the Fanad Peninsula and neighbouring Rosguill Peninsula for some spectacular coastal scenery. There's a mix of golden beaches, rolling farmland and dramatic rocky headlands before you reach Fanad Head itself, where the Atlantic waves often bash the rocks of the photogenic Fanad lighthouse, built in 1818.
On the adjoining Rosguill Peninsula, the Atlantic Drive is an exhilarating seven-mile route with more spectacular views of cliffs, headlands and white sandy bays around every hairpin bend. Stop along the way to take in the views over Tranarossan Bay, one of the drive's highlights.
