Inishowen Peninsula

The heart of Donegal cool

Inishowen Peninsula

Inishowen is the beating heart of Donegal cool.

Both rugged and refined, the Inishowen peninsula offers the complete package for Irish country living fused with easy access to urban amenities.

As the city of Derry’s natural hinterland, Inishowen is a spectacular coastal playground which is never far from city convenience. The peninsula is bursting with bustling towns and villages and brimming with stunning beaches.

Inishowen is a true gem of the Wild Atlantic Way – surrounded by the stunning ferocity of the ocean, the serenity of Lough Swilly, the beauty of Lough Foyle and teaming with wildlife.

Famed for its world class golf facilities, secluded angling hideaways, high octane watersports, breathtaking cycle/hiking routes and much more, Inishowen offers the very best of the great outdoors.

Home to Ireland’s most northerly point, Malin Head – where Star Wars ‘The Last Jedi’ was filmed – it’s easy to see why Inishowen was central to Donegal’s designation as the National Geographic’s Coolest Place on Planet in 2017.

Inishowen is steeped in culture and history, with castles and forts peppered right around peninsula. The rich heritage of the region is never far from view, from An Grianan of Aileach to Fort Dunree, O’Doherty’s Keep to Northburg Castle and Inch Castle to Burt Castle.

Inishowen’s residents find there is always somewhere new to discover in the expansive region, the largest peninsula on the island of Ireland.

All these things and more make Inishowen a great place to work, rest and play.
