The Scenic Lough Foyle Ferry is the perfect way to extend your trip without sitting in road traffic and continuing to hug the coastal views.
If you’re starting on the West coast, through the Wild Atlantic Way travelling north, you will venture through Letterkenny and Quigley’s Point in County Donegal, across Lough Foyle from Greencastle.
Or if you have been enjoying the sites of the Causeway Coastal Route through Castlerock and Downhill you arrive at Magilligan Point.
Surfers can hang ten on beaches stretching from Bundoran, through Benone and to Whiterocks with several surf schools including Narosa and Longline for the beginner. Golfers too can shorten their journey to Ballyliffin Golf Club or Royal Portrush.
You will be spoilt for choice with fresh local produce, relaxing cafes or luxurious meals along the coastal towns. The Scenic Foyle Ferry brings the award winning Harry’s Shack situated right on the beach in Portstewart and Sarah’s Restaurant & Bar looking out to Fanad Head Lighthouse, closer together.
Walking, cycling, by car or travelling in a tour, you will want to keep travelling:
Malin Head (the stunning most northerly point in Ireland); Horn Head (a Special Area of Conservation); Torr Head after a trip across Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. Castles such as Northbur, Glenveigh, Dunluce; Derry’s City Walls and Mussenden Temple.
Thanks to a 20 minute trip on a Ferry across Lough Foyle, your family day out just got a lot more exciting – and with more time to visit the beaches along the North Antrim and North West coasts. Horse-riding, canoeing, pottery making, shopping and exploring are all catered for either side of Lough Foyle and beyond.
