Dramatic scenery is one way to describe Fanad, stretching out into the Atlantic from the northerly head of Donegal. Rarely visited by the majority of tourists, this wonderfully area is both wild and carefree, almost constantly assailed by wind and wave, with beautiful rolling hillside that stills holds strong memories of our past.

Join local walking guide, Sean Mullan of ‘Walking and Talking in Donegal’ as he describes the history of the area such as the iconic Ballymastocker Bay, or enjoy wild scenery along Ballyhoorisky, almost at the very tip of Ireland. Other beautiful walking trails include The Way of the Cross and Rathmullan Woods from Fanad, Donegal
