Castle Inn Apartments are modern self-catering apartments with a stunning location along the shorefront in Greencastle, Co Donegal. Located beside the historic Norburg Castle, the apartments enjoy breathtaking views over Lough Foyle towards Magilligan Point and Binevenagh Mountain in Co Derry. 

Stunning Coastal Location

The apartments are just a few minutes stroll from the centre of Greencastle and its busy harbour. The scenic Greencastle Golf Club is 2.5km away and the wonderful Stroove Blue flag Beach is 4km to the north.  The Apartments are located along the Wild Atlantic Way and are 28km from the historic Walled City of Derry and 32km from the internationally renowned Ballyliffin Golf Club – venue for the 2018 Irish Open.  The Lough Foyle Ferry from Greencastle to Magilligan only takes 10 minutes and provides easy access to the beautiful North Coast of Northern Ireland.

Modern Apartments

There are 4 self-catering apartments in total – 2 on the ground floor and 2 on the first floor.  Each apartment has a large bright open plan area with kitchen, dining and living spaces. On the first floor, the open plan area has double glass doors out to a furnished balcony with beautiful sea views. On the ground floor, the open plan area opens out to a large paved patio area overlooking Lough Foyle. Each apartment has an ensuite double bedroom, an ensuite twin bedroom and a single bedroom with an adjacent toilet. There is an enclosed yard to the back of the apartments and ample parking to the front.

Greencastle:: An Ideal Touring Base

The village of Greencastle itself has a bustling and colourful harbour with fishing vessels, pleasure boats and the Lough Foyle Ferry coming and going on a regular basis. The fishing boats provide the fresh fish that has made Kealys Seafood Bar famous. The regions rich maritime history is depicted in the Inishowen Maritime Museum located on the waterfront. There is a wonderfully scenic shore walk from Greencastle to the nearby town of Moville.  A shorter coastal footpath passes northwards in front of the apartments.

History and Heritage

The ruins of Norburg Castle overlooks the apartments. It was built in 1305 by Richard De Burgo in an attempt to subdue the O'Donnell and O'Doherty Clans. Just beyond this castle is a Martello Tower which was built in 1801 in response to the threat of a Napoleonic Invasion. Other historic/heritage sites in the wider Inishowen area include the Doagh Famine Village near Ballyliffin, the Military Museum at Fort Dunree and the ancient Grianan of Aileach at Burt. The Historic Walled City of Derry is well worth a visit - the Tower Museum and a walking tour of the city walls is recommended.

Wild Atlantic Way

The apartments lie along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way which hugs the coastline of the Inishowen Peninsula. The visitor can use this route to explore this ruggedly beautiful Peninsula. Banbas Crown at Malin Head is Irelands most northerly point and is one of 3 Signature points on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal.
