Sean’s Contact Details
Radharc na Locha is a beautifully restored 2 storey Irish farmhouse with an idyllic setting overlooking Shannagh Lake near the Atlantic shoreline of the Fanad Peninsula in North Donegal.
Anton’s Cottage is a traditional Donegal farm cottage that has been in the same family since the early 1800s. It is located on a small hillside overlooking the north western coastline of the beautiful Fanad Peninsula.
The walks range from easy – 3 to 4 hours over a reasonably flat surface such as Ards Forest Park – to medium difficult such as Knockalla Mountain and Muckish which involve steep inclines and uneven, soft and boggy surfaces.
The longest walk – about 6 hours – takes us along the coast of the Fanad Peninsula – here we traverse sandy beaches, grass dunes and rock sculpted by the Atlantic waves. We finish at the Fanad Lighthouse which watches over the entrance to Lough Swilly and the turbulent Atlantic.
