Surrounding Area

The Grianan of Aileach is a group of historic monuments in County Donegal built on the hill of Grianán which is 244 metres high. The main monument is that of an Iron Age stone fortress. This important historical site was a centre of culture and politics during the rule of early Irish chieftains. A short drive from Sandymount Cottage takes you to the hilltop beside the Grianan - enjoy the panoramic views of Lough Foyle and Swilly before entering the rath itself.

Locally, there are lovely walks along the shoreline and in the surrounding hills, with the White Strand, and a Blue Flag Beach at Lisfannon to the south, while along the northern shore, a paved pathway will take you from Castle bridge, past Vaughan House and ODohertys Keep, onto Neds Point, Porthaw Beach and finally Stragill Beach. Admire beautiful coastal scenery along the way, with benches laid out at intervals along the path, where you can catch your breath and enjoy the views, or maybe watch the sunset. After Stragill the path ends, and at this point you may want to turn around. if you are really fit you can continue on to Linsfort and Dunree

A shorter walk takes one through the lovely Swan Park, which follows the Crana River along a wooded path, from Castle Bridge to the road bridge. A little further along the river, is the Tullyarvan Mill, a renovated 19th century grain mill, which now hosts art exhibitions, music festivals, concerts, plays, and provides a venue for private functions and conferences. It also has a 52 bed hostel.
