Last year Donegal was named the ‘coolest place on the planet’ by National Geographic. Here in Donegal we have always known this but now the world knows it too. And the coolest place is Donegal is of course, none other than Inishowen. Again we have all known this and now the world is getting to know it, thanks to Inishowen Breaks. Inishowen Breaks is a new website showcasing all that is our beautiful peninsula. Tucked away at the very top of the country we are the very ‘head’ of Ireland, and now we are about to go ‘ahead’.
Inishowen Breaks is the brainchild of two Buncrana businessmen and they are already putting Inishowen very much on that all important map. The homepage on their website introduces us:
Discover Donegal’s secret gem of the Wild Atlantic Way, the historic and beautiful Inishowen Peninsula, carved by the Atlantic Ocean, Lough Swilly & Lough Foyle. You will find a friendly welcome, tranquil beauty, the finest food, and experiences which will stay with you forever.
The largest peninsula on the island of Ireland, and the starting point of the Wild Atlantic Way, every town and village is a destination in itself, and with the visit of golf’s Irish Open Championship to Ballyliffin in 2018, there’s lots to see and do, so why not browse around and find the perfect location for your Inishowen getaway!
We are immediately introduced to words such as ‘gem’, ‘friendly’, ‘beautiful’, ‘tranquil’, ‘perfect’. All perfect descriptions of our beautiful Inishowen.
