Lough Swilly is perfect for all types of watersports – sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, powerboating, sea angling, diving. You name it, and the conditions here are ideal for it.
The Swilly is a long, sheltered finger of water wedged between Inishowen and Fanad, two wonderfully wild and beautiful peninsulas on Donegal’s northern coast. It’s small enough for beginners to feel comfortable getting on the water, and big enough for the more advanced to explore and test their skills.
For a place its size, the pretty little seaside village of Rathmullan really does have a lot to offer. Award winning restaurants such as the Weeping Elm and the Cellar Bar at Rathmullan House, arguably Ireland’s finest country house hotel.
The Salt N’ Batter chipper is the best in Donegal, possibly even the best anywhere on Ireland’s northern coast. Belles Kitchen serves superb lunches and pubs such as the White Harte and the Beachcomber make for the perfect place to take it easy after the excitement of being on the water. In and around Rathmullan you’ll also find a great selection of affordable, great quality holidays houses to let.
