The Locality

The picturesque village of Carrigart is situated at the point where the beautiful Rosguill Peninsula projects out into the Atlantic between Sheephaven and Mulroy Bay. The magnificent sandhills between Carrigart and nearby Downings are the setting for the two superb golf links at Rosapenna. The peninsula is also blessed with numerous sandy beaches - including Tramore, Downings, Melmore and Tra na Rossan. The famous Atlantic Drive offers spectacular views of the majestic cliffs, seascapes and glorious headlands along the Rosguill Peninsula.

A new bridge spanning Mulroy Bay near Carrigart was opened in 2009. This has brought the beautiful Fanad Peninsula within easy reach of the holiday home.

What they say

Can I also take this opportunity to say how helpful and user friendly your website is - it is certainly a plus for Donegal. I became aware of it through a friend who has booked a house in Ballyliffin for a number of us attending a wedding in the area in the summer.
