Fanad Head truly deserves to be a Signature Discovery Point on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. It is on Donegals’ north coast between Lough Swilly and Mulroy Bay. The road to Fanad from Rathmullan will reward you with some of the most spectacular views of the Inishowen Peninsula, Portsalon, Ballymastocker Bay and of course the Atlantic Ocean.
Fanad Lighthouse should not be missed and is a great photo opportunity. Enjoy a tour at the lighthouse visitor centre or even book self-catering accommodation there!
The whole headland and surrounding area is perfect for walking, watersports, picnicking or just to take the time out to contemplate the sheer beauty and majesty of nature.
