Touching

What a location to rest. The monument to this martyr is well-tended, right on the shore walk in Buncrana. His story is touching.

Cant beat the views and unspoiled beaches
May 2019 • Family
For anyone up for a we walk this is not a big task but the views and unspoiled beaches that await you are well worth it. Unfortunately the fairy forest is still closed due to storm damage so our little was not impressed(come on Donegal CC).

You can walk this route from anyplace in Buncrana. The views of the Swilly and the shores on the far side are beautiful as are the views of Inch Island whilst you get some really good exercise.

Walked up from Buncrana Pier took about an hour but you can walk from RNLI base, Beautiful views and great footpath saw very few people on a rainy Friday, Gets quite steep up near the rock and wear decent boots or runners.

A Must Do. Stunning scenery
Mar 2017 • Solo
This is truly beautiful coastal walk. From Buncrana, walk to bridge, from there its well signposted.
The path is well maintained , & fairly easy for anyone, as it gently undulates. The scenery is simply astounding, it's hard to believe it is so close to town. It follows the coast, & past some lovely small sandy beaches. Fr Hegarty's rock is about 1km along, set by the side of the path. It is a simple memorial, & quite moving.
From here, it"s not far to complete the coastal path, which ends at a long, empty sandy beach. Along the entirety, there are stunning sea & mountain views across to Inch Island & Rathmullen.
There are seats/benches at regular intervals along the route.
Highly recommend it; the entire route is only about 2 km each way.

A beautiful walk whatever the weather.
May 2016 • Couples
You can walk from Buncrana to Stragill beach along a beautiful coastal path. The view has to be seen to be believed! The place is full of history and explanations are given at various locations including at Father Hegarty Rock. Many people have left little poems and prayers at the site. Very peaceful.

lovely and peaceful

I spent a lovely morning exploring the shore walk in Buncrana and this was a nice historical feature to the walk. There is enough provided information for you to know what you are seeing, and it's so beautiful to walk along the water and take in the scenery. A perfect spring walk.
