The best way to appreciate this area is to leave your car and walk from the beach up to the light house. The scenery is great and you nearly no one. It is unblemished and worth the walk.

The longest Peninsula in Ireland? Single track road - rutted in places - and NO passing places along the final mile - and only spaces for four cars in the small car park at the light-house end! Be prepared to reverse back and park "off-road"...More

I spent some time in St. John's Point in Donegal Ireland and cannot believe the peace and beauty that is found on that small peninsula. Everything is in harmony; the rolling hills, the sheep, the homes, the wind blown trees and the sea. This was...More
