Discover Derry and Northern Ireland

Antrim Coast and Donegal

But even outside of Derry is much can do. The landscape at the “Antrim Coast” is not only because of the “Dunluce Castle”, the most picturesque of all Irish castles, the dramatic cliffs and the small port cities and ruins an experience. The north coast of Ireland is one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. Actually, the whole landscape of Northern Ireland and Donegal is breathtaking but. Many say, dass man hier die schönsten Strände in ganz Irland finden kann. A few kilometers to the northwest and one is in County Donegal, the northernmost county in Ireland. Donegal is rich in Gaelic culture and stunning landscape. Here you can e.g.. in case of “Slieve League” marvel at the highest cliffs in Europe (up to 600 m), or relax on miles of sandy beaches.
In Gweedore is located with the 749 m höchste Berg im County Donegal, the “Mount Errigal”. Ausserdem kann man auf einer Sandbank am “Magheraclogher Beach” ‘Bád Eddie’ (Eddie’s Boat) erkunden (siehe Fotos). Cara Na Mara (‘Friend of the Sea’) ist ein Fischereischiff das in den frühen 1970er Jahren in stürmischer See auf Grund lief. Es kommt auch im Video “In A Lifetime” of “Clannad” (mit Bono) before.

Bn der Spitze der Halbinsel Inishowen befindet sich „Malin Head“, der nördlichste Punkt der Republik Irland. Hier sieht man vor den Resten des Aussichtsturms der Irish Defence Forces (“Banba’s Crown”) das mit riesigen Lettern aus Stein gelegte Wort „ÉIRE“. Dieses signalisierte den deutschen Flugzeugen im 2. Weltkrieg dass sie jetzt neutrales Gebiet überfliegen. Near "Malin Head" you will find the famous “FiveFingers beach”. At low tide you can see the wreck of the “Twilight” the year 1889 sank on the way from Newfoundland to Derry. The mid-80s it was discovered there also a bunker by the IRA in which they outsourced a large shipment of weapons from Libya. This was then blown up later. The coast around "Malin Head" has many beautiful beaches, as e.g.. “Kinnagoe Bay”, “Culdaff” or “Pollan Bay”. Inishowen is the northernmost Store Ireland “The Curiosity Shop” and the northernmost restaurant and guest house “The Seaview Tavern” with spectacular views of the lighthouse Inishtrahull Iceland, Sandy Port Beach and the hills of Scotland.
