Dunfanaghy Overview

Dunfanaghy is a busy and scenic rural town on the northern Atlantic coast of Donegal. The town had long been a holiday destination for families, especially from Northern Ireland. Changes in holiday patterns, car ownership and more recently the development of holiday homes has brought commercial and architectural changes to the town. Many hotels and guest houses have closed but there has been a growth in coffee shops, cafes, specialist shops and bars. What remains constant is the wonderful seascapes, walks, Horn Head coastal walks and drive and access to the Derryveagh Mountains rising just a mile outside town.
House rentals are possible through on-line agencies and the town is a great base for touring, activity holidays and water-based activity.
Some people find the loss of vernacular buildings and the growing sprawl of holiday homes a blight, but there remains much to recommend the town. Local attractions include Horn Head, Portnablagh, Purt Lake, the Workhouse famine exhibition, shop and crafts centre and the Corcreggan Mill Hostel with its Kiln House and Railway Carriage and station platform accommodation.
