From Killybegs: Donegal Coast Boat Tour

1. From Killybegs: Donegal Coast Boat Tour

Board a well-outfitted vessel with capacity for 96 people at the new Killybegs Marina. Marvel at the passing super trawlers as you sail out through Killybegs Harbor. Check out the two lighthouses stationed at the harbor's mouth which are over 170 years old. Pass Drumanoo Head, once the loading point for passengers boarding the Lusitania before making the long journey to the USA. From there, head by Fintra's blue flag beach, the island of Inisduff, and Muckross Head, a popular spot for rock climbing with its dramatic rocky overhangs. Hug the coastline until you reach Carrigan Head with its characteristic Napoleonic tower. As circle the tower, catch your first glimpse of the amazing Sliabh Liag Cliffs, standing at 601 meters above sea level. Travel along the cliffs before turning back. Take in views of the vast Donegal Bay, which affords views of four different counties at once. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife, including various species of birds, dolphins, tuna, and whales.
