Downings Holiday Homes

Downings is a lovely seaside village located amid the spectacular scenery of north Donegal. The village is blessed with superb beaches and has fine views across Sheephaven Bay to the Ards peninsula (with the remains of Ard House on the point of the peninsula) and the distant flat-topped peak of Muckish.

It has a long standing tradition of tweed making and fishing. Downings is traditionally a Irish speaking area where you are likely to hear Irish spoken but English is the language generally in use. Sheephaven Bay is ideal for water sports and deep sea angling. The Rosapenna Championship Links Golf Course is just half a mile from the village. This small peninsula area jutting out into the Atlantic also has interesting walks and drives.
