Inishowen Peninsula boosts some of Ireland’s most beautiful, unspoilt landscape steeped in history and Irish folklore. A landmark destination of the WILDSEA Atlantic Ocean Heritage Route (WAOH! Route), it offers activities for all tastes, including scuba diving, sea stack climbing, wildlife watching, walking, fishing, swimming, photography or studying rock formations or rare flora.
The peninsula is best known for hosting Ireland’s most Northerly point: Malin Head, which stands as a crown on the majestic head of the country. This amazing place has seen some of the world's event happen on its doorstep, from Ireland's first telecommunication as Lloyds Signal Tower, to the German Fleet passing as the end of the first World War. History is embedded in its roots and it tells stories of the years gone by.
Along the coastal road take in some of Europes largest sand dunes north of Trawbreaga Bay at Lagg or check out our famous Five Finger Strand from Knockamany Bens, either way you won’t be disappointed with the views, or the sights you see. With low tide brings the wreckage of the ‘Twilight’ into view, which sank while on route to Derry in 1889. For all history buffs following the coast road is a must as you’ll pass the ‘old radio station’ from 1910 and ‘The Tower’ on Banba’s Crown. View the magnificent islands of Inistrahull and Tory from your perch, as well as the Scottish hills on a fine day in Ireland. After a picnic, stroll along the cliffs to Hells Hole, where the tide rushes in with force, then heading east will lead you to Ballyhillion Beach where you can forage for semi-precious stones on the beach.
