While touring Donegal County, I stopped by this beach and found it to be another typical beautiful Ireland one. Expansive, nice sand, beautiful views -- what' s not to like.

This place is special - unique - and it's Ireland at its best .... you come here to feed the soul. The beach is very walkable and views expansive - like being at the top of the earth. Locals on holiday , not tourists

We visited for a bracing walk on the beach (the weather was unkind) which we all enjoyed. The blue flag beach has a lifeguard on duty so it's safe for children. There is car parking near by with sets of steps to access the beach....More

We visited on a beautifully sunny day, however, there was a very strong wind. We walked the length of the beach and was happy to see life buoys at very regular intervals. The beach is very clean and looked very safe.

We stayed in B&B's in Dungloe so I don't know the hotels in the area. I was surprised to see a lot more hotels than I remembered from previous visits to Co. Donegal.

Head for Portnoo and you'll reach it about a mile before. You can't miss it.
