Rosbeg itself is a very picturesque coastal village - in effect it is a collection of houses fronted by sandy coves which are in turn sheltered by jagged rock formations. It has a small pier with slipway which is ideal for launching small boats. Swimming, fishing, sea kayaking and sailing are popular local activities.
The local pub - Joe's Seafood Bar - is a Donegal Good Food Tavern and has been voted as one of the pubs in Ireland with the best sea views.
Sheskinmore Nature Reserve lies just to the east of Rosbeg. The reserve is a large area of sand dunes, lake and marsh that lies between Kiltooris and Ballinreavy Strand. It is regarded as one of the most important Nature Reserves in Ireland and has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), a Special Protection Area (SPA) and a Wildfowl Sanctuary. Sheskinmore is open to the public all year round, and offers families & nature enthusiasts many of the wonders of nature unique to Ireland.
