Greencastle Self Catering – Greencastle, a lovely little seaside-fishing village, is situated on the east side of the Inishowen Peninsula, at the narrow mouth of Lough Foyle looking towards Magilligan Point. A car ferry connects the village with north County Derry and from there it’s a relatively short drive to the Giant’s Causeway.
Derry, or the Maiden City as it’s sometimes called, the second largest city in Northern Ireland is only 30 minutes drive from Greencastle, situated about 25 miles south, along the shores of Lough Foyle. A very interesting city with it’s famous City Walls, Museums, Theatres, Restaurants as well as good shopping.
Hill walking has become an increasingly popular activity, and there are some spectacular walks in the area. A rewarding coastal walk would be along the cliffs from Inishowen Head to Kinnegoe Bay, with its beautiful beaches and the site of the wreck of the Spanish Armada vessel, the “La Trinidad Valecera”, which went down in 1588.
