Fishing

Sea angling is also popular in this part of the Fanad Peninsula. The holiday home is close to Ballyhoorisky Pier and to the remnants of an old pier. Fishing off the rocks close to the dramatic Fanad Lighthouse is well worthwhile.  Trout angling is available at nearby  Kindrum Lough and also at the Meadows Trout Fishery in Rossnakill (12km).

Walking

The narrow winding coastal roads around Ballywhoriskey House pay their part in ensuring a slower pace of life. These roads are ideal for walking and cycling.  Indeed the wider Fanad Peninsula is criss-crossed with winding country roads and mountain tracks – perfect rambling terrain.

Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way hugs the coastline of the Fanad and Roguill Peninsulas and the visitor can use this driving route to explore this beautiful part of Ireland. The Fanad Head Lighthouse is a Signature Point on Wild Atlantic Way and is now open for tours during the holiday season. 

The northern tip of the Fanad Peninsula is an area of remarkable scenic beauty with narrow winding roads, small lakes, sandy beaches and areas untouched by modern society. Ballywhoriskey House is an ideal base to explore this beautiful part of Donegal
