  • A very beautiful place where forest meets golden sandy beach. Extensive forest with many trails well kept and easy to walk. A must do when visiting Donegal
  • Well worth stopping off here. The beach and view is just amazing. Hidden gem.
  • Great walking trails, forest walks and beach walks
  • Wow. Beautiful walking trails, woodland and beaches. Stunning views. Probably different in peak season but today on the 16th May we encountered 2 other people. And that was in the car park.
  • Great walks and services on site. Heritage trail is a must.
