The Lennon Lodge is perfect for an overnight stay for those travelling along the Wild Atlantic Way. It is also an ideal base for those who want to say a little longer to explore the Wild Atlantic Way in North Donegal in a little more depth.
Ramelton is effectively a gateway town for two of Donegals most beautiful peninsulas – Fanad and Rosguill. The spectacular Fanad Peninsula has numerous bays, glorious beaches, rolling hills and small lakes. On the eastern shores of the peninsula the renowned Knockalla coast road offers a spectacular drive overlooking Lough Swilly and the Inishowen hills.
Scenic highlights in Fanad include the Great Pollet Arch, the superb blue flag beach at Portsalon and the dramatic lighthouse at Fanad Head – a Signature Point on the Wild Atlantic Way.
The smaller Rosguill Peninsula lies between Sheephaven Bay and Mulroy Bay and features the famous Atlantic Drive, now part of the Wild Atlantic Way. On the western side of the peninsula the road skirts the shores of Mulroy Bay northwards towards Melmore Head.
Along this route there are several fine sandy beaches and secluded inlets. There are also dramatic views of the Fanad Peninsula and the Mulroy Bridge. On the other side of the peninsula the road follows the shoreline of Sheephaven Bay – with wonderful views of Tory Island, Horn Head, Muckish Mountain and Ards Forest Park.
