The golf course stretches along the length of the beach and provides a very good golf links challenge. Horse Riding is also available along the beach or among the quiet roads surrounding the town.
Ideal Cycling and Walking Terrain
For the cycling enthusiast every turn offers a new and breathtaking experience. There is plenty of opportunities for walkers in this beautiful part of Donegal – coastal walks around the Horn Head Peninsula, woodland walks in the magnificent Ards Forest Park and hill walking in the North Donegal Highlands – Muckish Mountain provides a very scenic background to Dunfanaghy town.
Dunfanaghy now has a well established Festival programme which runs throughout the year and includes a Seafood Festival, a Jazz and Blues Festival and a Halloween Madness Festival.
The Famine Centre in Dunfanaghy is a haunting evocation of the Great Famine of the 1840’s, housed in the original Workhouse and adjacent to the old Fever Hospital, which is now home to a local Art Gallery. Just outside the town is New Lake, a wildlife sanctuary packed with different kinds of duck, geese and swans and a great spot for brown trout fishing too.
