Inishowen (Irish: Inis Eoghain, meaning “Island of Eoghan”) is the peninsula which can be seen directly to the East of Fanad on a map on the other side of Lough Swilly. The two peninsulas are connected by a seasonal ferry running from Rathmullan to Buncrana. Check info and timetables on the Lough Swilly Ferry website

It is the largest peninsula in all of the island of Ireland and is a picturesque location with a very rich history and so much to see and do.
The peninsula includes Ireland’s most northerly point, Malin Head – one of the key discovery points along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way. Malin Head is a fabulous spot for viewing the Aurora Borealis if you are lucky enough to be in Donegal when the Northern Lights are active.
