On a day trip to Glencolmchille I discovered this beach and it is absolutely stunning. If you had a picnic or walking it is perfect there is a cafe and shop nearby and they were selling Irish Coffee the day I visited.

This beach has to be one of Ireland’s finest. Horseshoe shaped at the end of the majestic Slieve League cliffs it has to be seen to be believed.

The drive out to the beach was beautiful, and the beach was absolute perfection. The evening we went we had the beach almost to ourselves...very peaceful. Great spot!

Getting here is half the fun. It is a wonderful country drive on narrow roads with excellent farm and coastal scenery. The beach itself is also lovely, but probably no more so than many other end-of-the-road beaches along the west coast of Ireland. The day...More

The beach is beautiful and it is definitely worth a visit, it can be quite windy but there are places you can shelter from the wind. We dipped in and the water was calm and very clean. Highly recommend a visit!

THERE are LOTS of steps to get to the beach, but is worth it. The beach gives a different perspective to the many cliffs on the Donegal shoreline. It is very much out of the way - we added this to our itinerary after the...More
