It’s then on to the rugged cliffs of Malin Head, the most northerly point of mainland Ireland, and along the coast to catch the Scenic Lough Foyle Ferry and head back to Roe Park.
On Day 4 you’ll adventure along Donegal’s stunning coastline on the Wild Atlantic Way. You’ll explore Portsalon — once named the second most beautiful beach in the world, the picturesque Fanad Head Lighthouse and the dramatic Downies Atlantic Drive tour of the Rosguill Peninsula. Enjoy a trip to the 15th century Doe Castle in its glorious setting on Sheephaven Bay, before heading to your hotel in Letterkenny.
Day 5 brings a scenic tour of Glenveagh National Park and its beautiful 19th century castle. You’ll continue your motorcycle ride of the Wild Atlantic Way to Bloody Foreland, where the sunset brings out the red hue of the granite cliffs, and Bunbeg Harbour, where a narrow road leads to an incredibly beautiful quay on an inlet on the Atlantic Ocean. It’s then on to the seaside village of Kincasslagh and the idyllic fishing harbour of Burtonport, before heading back to Letterkenny via the Glendowan Mountains.
On the final day of your motorcycle tour of the north of Ireland you’ll ride south through the breathtaking high mountain scenery of the Glenesh Pass to the spectacular sea cliffs of Slieve League.
