Fanad Head

Whilst in Donegal, a visit to Fanad Head Lighthouse, one of Donegal’s proud beacons, is a must. This can be found on the peninsula with the same name. Fanad Head Lighthouse was built after a tragedy over 200 years ago and is still in great condition. For some spectacular views of Fanad Peninsula, climbing to the top of the tower is a must. You can even spend the night in the lighthouse itself! And whilst you’re in the area, why not visit the breathtaking Lough Swilly and the picturesque Mulroy Bay. You might even spot some whales, porpoises or dolphins here!
