The Ultimate Guide To the North West of Ireland

What would you like to discover in and around North West of Ireland today?

Inishowen

What can we say about Inishowen, yes it is the largest peninsula on the island of Ireland and yes it is Irelands most northerly point, but what stands out about it most is its sheer outstanding natural beauty. From the North Atlantic waves crashing against the cliff faces, to the spectacular views from the Urris mountains, and the walks along its hilltop bogs, to the magnificent sandy beaches scattered around the coastline, there are also lots of lovely coastal walks and paths.

The history of the peoples of Inishowen goes back thousands of years and due to its remoteness, the evidence of these peoples can still be seen to this very day in numerous locations throughout the area.

From the rock art and stone circles of pre-history to the early medieval high crosses marking the sites of the numerous monasteries that were built in the area, Inishowen must have been thriving during this period. You also have the late middle age castles and forts of the Doherty clan and their allies scattered throughout the area.
