The nearby Ballyliffin Golf Club, with its marvellous contoured fairways, is a course that adds new meaning to the phrase ‘a natural golf links'. The links courses at Ballyliffin have received the highest accolades from top golfers. Nick Faldo described the course as "the most natural golf links... a hidden gem." Fred Daly described it as "a real Jewel." And Ireland's Ryder Cup players Darren Clarke and Ronan Rafferty have tested and approved it. In fact, the north coast of Ireland can now boast several links courses on a par with Royal Portrush, making this a mecca for golf enthusiasts.

The area is also ideally located for walks, hill walking and countryside rambling. The beach at Culdaff is suitable for surfing and is popular with enthusiasts throughout the northwest.
