The Inishowen Peninsula
The Inishowen Peninsula is the largest peninsula in Co Donegal and is often described as ‘Ireland in Miniature’. It seems likely from archaeological evidence that the earliest settlers arrived here around 5000 years ago and these and those who followed have left a rich and varied archaeological heritage which includes standing stones, tombs and other monuments. Many of these are signposted and accessible and are a ‘window’ to the areas past and its people.
The Inishowen 100 Scenic Drive is a 100 mile long signposted touring route around the peninsula and is an opportunity to experience some of Irelands most breathtaking scenery. Amongst its highlights is Irelands most northerly point at the wild and rugged Malin Head.
