Take a leisurely 45 minute ferry crossing to Inishowen and visit the Flight of the Earls Heritage Centre and learn about the O’Donnell’s and O’Neill’s and their departure to Spain over 700 years ago. If you don’t get bored of the views (you won’t) pack a picnic and check out Lough Swilly or Inch Island, or both!

The town lends itself to activities for all ages, tastes and interests – including thrilling watersport, world-class golf, hiking and cycling. The Inishowen Genealogy Centre also gives visitors a chance to trace their ancestors back to the 17th century!
