This Peninsula is located in North West Donegal and is surrounded by the county's largest Gaeltacht area.The peninsula has a fertile low-lying grassy plain known as a Machair or machar in Gaelic. The unique ecosystem of this grassy plain has led much of Carricfinn to be designated as a Special Area of Conservation and also a Natural Heritage area.

Locally based Rapid Kayaking offer half day island tours and canoe trips along the coast.

What they say

Congratulations on an absolutely wonderful site! I was going crazy researching availability on other sites - that did not state price, no. of rooms, bathroom facilities often (even after clicking three or four links) and also did not follow a pattern for each entry. Your site is delightful. I could go through all pages of entries and with the price details given immediately did not need to waste time over entries not within my budget.
