Standing between idyllic Lough Swilly and sandy Mulroy Bay, Fanad Head Lighthouse has been voted one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world. Its location within the Donegal Gaeltacht (an Irish speaking area), on the eastern shore of the Fanad Peninsula, is truly breathtaking. No wonder it’s a highlight of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Give yourself plenty of time here. Time to take in the spectacular scenery, to explore the wild and wonderful natural world around you: the area is regularly visited by whales, porpoises and dolphins.
Learn more about Fanad Head Lighthouse and this very special area in the Visitor Centre at the lighthouse.
