The Loughros Peninsula
The Loughros Peninsula extends west from Ardara into the Atlantic Ocean at Loughros Point. It is a peaceful, unspoilt peninsula which has some of the most beautiful scenery in Donegal. There are magnificent views across Loughros Beg Bay towards the Slievetooey Mountains and the famous Asaranca waterfall which cascades down to the majestic Maghera Beach. A 10 minute Walk from the holiday home brings you to Dorlins beach - a nice bathing beach on the Loughros More Bay side of the Peninsula.
Ideal Walking Terrain
Ard a Mhaoire is a great base for outdoor pusuits. The Loughros Peninsula and its two neighbouring peninsulas – Dawros to the north and Slieve League to the south provide endless opportunities for the walker, hill climber, cyclist and the sightseer. And of course the Bluestack Mountains to the east of Ardara are renowned for their Waymarked Way walking trails.
On the nearby Dawros Peninsula you have the wonderful Narin & Portnoo Golf Links and the superb Narin Blue Flag Beach as well as archaeology sites like the Kilclooney Dolmen and the circular stone fort on Lough Doon. A little further afield on the rugged Slive League Peninsula you have the folk village at Glencolmcille , the dramatic Slieve League Cliffs and Killybegs – Irelands largest fishing port and also a top sea angling centre.
