We visited Fanad Head lighthouse on a grey rainy day with no great expectations, just for something to do. The tour of lighthouse was a wonderful experience. The kids enjoyed climbing the narrow winding staircase to the top and the adults loved hearing the stories of the lighthouse keepers and their families.

Amazing beach totally empty - but it can be windy and a bit chilly! However I can imagine on still sunny day it would be fabulous.

This beach is in a small village so is almost hidden away. It's so long of a beach that it usually is not packed and you can relax. Very clean clear water and not one piece of litter I seen!! Also has a shop and restaurant close by!
