Holiday Cottages, Falcarragh
Falcarragh or Cross Roads (Fal Carrach or An Falcarragh in Irish) is situated on a narrow inlet of Ballyness Bay and has a population of 990 people (2002). The town has a beautiful setting and is also within easy reach of some of Donegal's most spectacular scenery. There are a number of islands lying off Ballyness Bay. The largest of these is Tory Island which is still inhabited.
Scenery in the Falcarragh area is second to none. View two of Donegal’s most famous mountains, Muckish and Errigal or walk its miles of golden beaches. The spectacular sea cliffs at Horn Head and Glenveagh National Park are just a short drive away. The islands of Tory and Inisboffin can be seen from the coast, both of which are accessible from Magheroarty Pier nearby. Falcarragh is an ideal base from which to tour North West Donegal.
The road south from Falcarragh to Glenveagh passes through Muckish Gap . The slate-grey mass of Muckish Mountain dominates the view all the way from Falcarragh; the hillsides are pitted with old workings where quartzite sand was extracted for the manufacture of optical glass. It's a relatively easy climb from the roadside shrine at the Gap up a grassy ridge to the summit and, on a clear day from here, the entire coastline from the Bloody Foreland, with distant Tory, to Malin Head is splendidly visible.
