Private Tour Showcasing Highlights of Inishown, Co Donegal
This is a private, full day tour of Inishowen, the largest peninsula of Ireland and located in the North West of County Donegal.
It's here you'll find many historical monuments dating back to early settlements including stone circles, a military fort, castle ruins and the ring fort at Grianán Aileach where we'll begin the day.
This tour is packed with history as well as culture, breathtaking scenery as well as hidden gems and one not to be missed!
We'll begin unsloving the mystery at Grianán of Aileach although it's had many well kept secrets and some that will stay that way. It's an ancient ring fort where you'll be able to see a 360 degree panoramic view of lough Swilly, lough Foyle and onto the Inishowen peninsula and on a clear day, 5 counties!
We'll see St. Mura's Cross in Fahan, O'Dougherty's Keep & Carrickabraghey Castle. We'll see the military Fort Dunree where we'll take a guided tour of their visitors center and see the canons and artillery used in our not so distant past. Between each stop, we'll see breathtaking views and hidden gems known only to the locals while going places you'll never see a tour bus.
We'll complete the day by standing on the most northerly point of Ireland, Malin Head followed by a coastal drive through Moville taking in views of lough Foyle where many of Donegal's ancestors waved their final goodbye.
We'll have tea (afternoon lunch) at your leisure and substitutions are welcome to better suit your interests.
