Moville

Trip Planner Europe  /  Ireland  /  County Donegal  /  Moville
Moville is a coastal town located on the Inishowen Peninsula of County Donegal, Ireland, close to the northern tip of the island of Ireland. It is the first coastal town of the Wild Atlantic Way when starting on the northern end.LocationThe town has a scenic location on the western shore of Lough Foyle, approximately 30 km from Derry, which lies across the border in Northern Ireland. Features include Moville Green, a large seaside park in the Victorian style which features bandstands, walking trails, playgrounds, a coastal footpath and views east across the waters of the lough to Northern Ireland. As a result of its location and proximity to several beaches, Moville receives a volume of visitors and daytrippers in the summer months.HistoryIn the second half of the 19th century, Moville was a point of embarkation for travellers, especially emigrants, to Canada and the United States of America. Steamships of the Anchor Line of Glasgow, and others en route from Glasgow to New York City called at Moville to pick up additional passengers. Today, the town receives little maritime traffic; it retains its small fishing harbour, but the important commercial fishing port at Greencastle lies only a few miles away.
Moville is in County Donegal. Customize your holiday with our Ireland travel route planner to create an adventure that suits you.
