An Ideal Holiday Base for the Inshowen Peninsula

Greencastle itself is a small coastal town located in the eastern side of the scenic Inishowen Peninsula in Co Donegal. It is situated close to the narrow mouth of Lough Foyle and is just 1km by ferry from Magilligan Point in Co Derry. It also lies along the route of Irelands Wild Atlantic Way.

The village has a beautiful setting overlooking Lough Foyle towards the dramatic Benevenagh Mountain.  It originally developed as fishing port but it recent times has become a popular family tourist destination.  This is due to a number of factors including its central location on the Inishowen Peninsula, its easy access to the dramatic northern coastlines of Derry and Antrim and its proximity to the historic walled City of Derry.  It is also due to a number of more local factors including Greencastles rich maritime heritage, its friendly pubs, its beautiful 18 hole golf course and the wonderful Shroove beach overlooked by the dramatic Stroove Lighthouse.
