Local departure points.
The Inishowen Gateway Hotel
Our three-star hotel, located on the Inishowen Peninsula, overlooks Lisfannon Beach, Lough Swilly and Buncrana Harbour. Well-appointed bedrooms, inviting public areas with the Loughview lounge bar, and an indoor swimming pool with spa facilities will ensure a wonderful holiday in County Donegal.
We leave from our local departure points and travel to Cairnryan, where we board P&O Irish Sea Ferries to Larne. On arrival, we drive north to Buncrana, in the county of Donegal and our base for four nights. The Inishowen Gateway Hotel
A spectacular county on the Wild Atlantic Way, Donegal offers staggering cliffs, jagged coastlines, golden sands, majestic mountains and sparkling lakes. We tour the Inishowen Peninsula, with its traditional villages and unspoilt beaches and travel to Malin Head, the most northerly point of mainland Ireland. A guided tour will introduce us to Dunree Fort, ‘Fort of the Heather’; a coastal defence fortification offering panoramic views and fascinating exhibits of the area’s history. We travel to Northern Ireland to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of The Giant’s Causeway. We explore the amazing basalt stone columns left by volcanic eruptions 60 million years ago, or as legend would have it, the stepping stones of the giant Finn McCool, striding over to Scotland! A visit will be made to the Glenveagh National Park. It is the second largest national park in Ireland and contains the Glenveagh Castle and Grounds, Lough Veagh and much of the Derryveagh Mountains. We allow time to explore our resort, Buncrana and the magnificent surroundings of our hotel.
We return to Larne, the ferry for Cairnryan and our final destinations after a memorable coach holiday.
