Located against the backdrop of the hills of the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal, the village of Ballyliffin is a place of great natural beauty where visitors can enjoy panoramic views of Glashedy Island and the Atlantic Ocean.

Inishowen has it all – from wild, romantic coastlines to beautiful woodland and rivers; from stunning award-winning beaches to fabulous food; from quality accommodation to a fantastic range of activities and attractions.  See a different North West Coast in Winter – still beautiful, but a wilder beauty than that of summer. Wrap up warm and feel the bracing sea air or watch the waves crashing on the beaches.

The gem waiting to be discovered in this beautiful area is Ballyliffin!
