Doe Castle, County Donegal

Rosguill Peninsula, County Donegal

Rosguill Peninsula juts out into the Atlantic Ocean between Sheephaven and Mulroy bays. The simplest way to see it is to follow the 11km Atlantic Drive, a circular route which skirts the clifftops at the tip of the headland.
Doe Castle, north of Creeslough village, is worth a visit as much of its setting on a promontory over-looking Sheephaven Bay as for its architectural or historical interest. Even so, it is still a substantial ruin – the remains of a castle erected in the 16th century by the MacSweeneys, a family of Scottish mercinaries.

 

Rosguill Peninsula and Doe Castle is a must see on your Ireland tours.
