, if you fancy a dip, or access to Binion Hill
, a designated hill walk! Climb the 76 steps of Fanad Head Lighthouse
, which has been safeguarding seafarers since 1817, and hear the stories of shipwrecked parrots and lost gold on the lighthouse tour. Or explore the Doagh Famine Village
– Pat Doherty established the exhibition in honour of his family’s survival during the Great Famine.
