Hotels in Dunfanaghy
Home to an elegant early-Victorian market square, Dunfanaghy benefited from a revolutionary new transport link in 1903, when it was connected to the railway, although the line closed later in the 20th century, when cars became increasingly more affordable and popular.
Probably one of the cleanest and most aesthetically pleasing beaches in Europe, Killahoey Beach has earned the coveted Blue Flag award and comprises a vast sandy beach overlooked by a golf course. Known locally as Dunfanaghy Beach, it is patrolled by a lifeguard during the warmer months and is reasonably well sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds.
Another outstanding sandy beach, secluded Tramore Strand is significantly wider and more exposed to the Atlantic waves. On a clear day, it is also a spectacular place to witness Atlantic sunsets, although the scenery here is certainly breathtaking whatever the weather.
Other places to visit in the local area
Just to the south of Dunfanaghy is the prominent peak of Muckish, which is 666m in height and is one of the highest peaks of the Derryveagh Mountains. The mountain can be accessed via the scenic Miner's Path, and is next to the smaller but still impressive Crocknalaragagh peak.
