The Popular Golf And Beach Resort of Dunfanaghy
The village of Dunfanaghy itself is located on Donegal's North West coast, on the western side of beautiful Sheephaven Bay. It also lies along the route of Irelands Wild Atlantic Way driving route. In the centre of this quaint village is a small square with a market house built in 1847 and a quay built in 1831 and formerly used to export corn. The village is also home to several art galleries,pubs, cafes and craft shops, and a museum - situated in a former workhouse - which describes the effects of the Irish Potato Famine on the Dunfanaghy area
Across the bay from Dunfanaghy is the spectacular Horn Head, which shelters Dunfanaghy from the Atlantic Ocean and has been designated as an Irish Natural Heritage Area and a Refuge for Fauna (specifically sea birds). New Lake near Dunfanaghy was formerly a salt water marsh but alterations to local sand dunes meant the marsh filled with fresh water and became a lake. Over time New Lake became a haven for seabirds and is now a Special Protection Area
