Now is the perfect time to take the opportunity to relax and recharge with a short break on the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal on the North Coast of Ireland.
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.
Ballyliffin is a delightful village, with a fine long golden sandy beach at Pollan that stretches to over two miles in length. Crockaughrim presents a rewarding climb and there are examples of primative rock art at the western slope, which dates from the Bronze Age.
Ballyliffin is home to the Ballyliffin Golf Club, Ireland’s most northerly club, and a gem of a destination for the visiting golfer. There are two outstanding and contrasting 18 hole championship golf courses to choose from. The Old Links and the Glashedy Links. Both courses offer a round of golf, amongst some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland and attract golfers from all over the world.
Doagh visitor’s centre is an outdoor museum tells the story of life in this area in the 1970’s going back to the famine in the 1840’s. During the months of November and December the village becomes Lapland with Santa arriving down the chimney.
