Fort Dunree, perched majestically on a rocky outcrop overlooking Lough Swilly, demonstrates its vital role in coastal defence and neutrality protection with a complete expose of coastal artillery. The military museum has an array of artefacts, while the local cafe boasts to be ‘The most scenic coffee shop in Ireland.’ Newly developed hillside walks enable visitors to get breathtaking views of the Atlantic and Fanad Head. The monastic site of Desertegney is
dedicated to St. Columba and the area is one of spectacular scenery overlooking Lough Swilly. In the distance lie the Urris Mountains; the famous Gap of Mamore.
