Moville is situated in the east of Inishowen on the Banks of Loch Foyle. The population of the town in 2016 was 1480.
In the 19th century, the town was an embarkation point for people from Ireland, who were emigrating, especially to the USA and Canada. In 2009 an emigration monument was unveiled on Moville Pier called ‘Fid’ and was designed by well-known artist Locky Morris. A Fid was a small handheld tool used to splice nets and ropes.
There is a wonderful 2.2km (one way) coastal walk which starts from the shorefront and takes you along the coastline to Ballybrack and almost Greencastle if you want; it has great views of lough Foyle and the mountains of County Derry.
On the shorefront, you will find a great play park for the kids, plenty of off-street parking and Inish Adventures which provides water-based activities and courses.
The town has some excellent accommodation including the Moville Boutique Hostel which has been converted from farm buildings and the Foyle Hotel which is run by award-winning TV Chef and Author Brian Mc Dermott. Locally there is also plenty of B&B and self-caring accommodation. The town has a lot of places that you can have something to eat in.
