The drive is  about 12km long so you can best appreciate it if you cycle or walk. The walk can be comfortably completed in half a day.

The natural landscape of the Rosguil Peninsula also provides the basis for many of the activities that the visitor can enjoy. In addition to an abundance of golden sandy beaches  there are many water based activities in the Downings area - including windsurfing, deep sea diving, sea angling and boat charters. There is also horse riding and hill walking

What they say

We spent St Patricks at this big warm family home. The space is amazing and we had rooms for all the family. Downings is a great place to relax and the walk to the Harbour bar is very achievable....even with a few Guinness! The house was clean tidy and well equipped. Would certainly stay again.
