The Lough Foyle Ferry is the perfect way to experience both the Causeway Coastal Route and Wild Atlantic Way. Using the mouth of the Lough Foyle to connect Northern Ireland to Donegal, the ferry extends your trip without sitting in road traffic while still enjoying the coastal views.
If you’re on the West Coast travelling the Wild Atlantic Way and heading North you will venture towards Letterkenny, follow signs for Moville and enjoy the coastal drive along the Lough Foyle and continue on to Greencastle where you’ll find the Lough Foyle Ferry waiting to cross to Magilligan Point.
Maybe you’ve travelled along the Causeway Coast from Ballycastle or Rathlin Island? Take your time past the Giant’s Causeway into Portrush and drive towards Castlerock. After you’ve visited Downhill and Mussenden Temple drive towards Magilligan Point where the Lough Foyle Ferry will transport you into Inishowen.
Surfers can thrill themselves at Bundoran’s Tullan Strand but they seek out the more challenging waves in the wilds of Inishowen and Fanad Head. Take the ferry to Magilligan and find your surf spot on Benone Strand or Portrush East Strand, two of the most popular surf beaches on the Causeway Coast.
Thanks to a 20 minute trip on the Lough Foyle Ferry your adventure just got a lot more exciting! Whether walking, cycling, driving or on a tour you’ll want to experience some of our Wild Atlantic Way destinations like Malin Head, Ireland’s most northerly point and filming location for Star Wars or Greencastle itself with it’s own Northburgh Castle and Planetarium. On the Causeway Coast you’ll have to experience Ballintoy Harbour, filming location for Game of Thrones as well as Dunluce Castle based in Portrush.
