In summertime Dunfanaghy is a busy seaside village full of holiday makers enjoying the beaches, eateries, boutique shops and pubs.
It’s a great place to spend some time with lots to do for families, couples or even if you fancy a few days away for yourself!
Horse Riding with the Dunfanaghy Stables
What a great way to spend an afternoon, galloping along a gorgeous sandy beach or taking off to the hills with your lunch to go! Kids can learn the ropes on the wee ponies around the stables yard. The stables team are full of fun youthful energy so give it a go and enjoy yourself.
An incredible stretch of beach with wonderful views of Horn head, and the islands including Toriagh. You can really stretch your legs here with kilometres of rugged coastline to walk. The surf here is fantastic for the more experienced. Make sure and catch this beach at sunset, it’s a sight you won’t forget too soon!
Makes the Cliffs of Moher look mediocre. Simply put this is a stunning natural wonder, a 200ft cliff line decending into the deep blue below. The panoramic views you see here are unbelievable, from the rolling hills of Fanad through Sheep Haven bay taking in Dunfanaghy, Muckish and the Derryveagh mountains. Tramore beach sits below and you can see all the way past Magheraroarty to Cnoc Fola, out to sea sits the historic Toriagh island!
The Rusty Oven
Fantastic spot for a sour dough pizza. Always busy but you can grab a drink from Patsy Dan’s and retell the tale about that amazing wave you caught while you wait. If the sun is shining sit outside and be amazed by the crispy sour dough bases and well thought through topping combos. If you’re feeling a little fruity you can order a dessert pizza with seasonal fruits and nutella. Nom flipping nom.
