The area has superb beaches and has fine views across Sheephaven Bay to the Ards peninsula (with the remains of Ard House on the point of the peninsula) and the distant flat-topped peak of Muckish. It has a long standing tradition of tweed making and fishing. Downings is traditionally an Irish speaking area where you are likely to hear Irish spoken but English is the language generally in use. Sheephaven Bay has interesting walks and drives and is ideal for water sports and deep-sea angling. The Rosapenna Championship Links Golf Course is just half a mile from Downings village.
The rugged landscape of the Rosguil Peninsula also provides the basis for many activities for tourists to enjoy, including miles of golden sandy beaches and water sports such as water Skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, deep-sea diving, sea angling & boat charters. Other activities include, horse riding, pitch and putt and hill walking.
Downings has a newly built modern leisure center called Magherabeg Leisure Center, which is open to the public and features a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, and gym.

Nearby in Dunfanaghy there is the Workhouse famine museum. Churchill has the famous Glebe House & Gallery and Colmcille Heritage Centre. Letterkenny has all the amenities you would expect to find in a large town - cinema, museum, theatre, leisure centres, art galleries and excellent shopping centres. A day trip to Tory Island is highly recommended.
We stayed here recently for a random weekend away and what a magical weekend we had. This place is simply stunning! The views are breathtaking from when we woke up till sunset, we just couldn't get enough! The property was well appointed with all mod cons and very clean. The bed was very comfortable as well. The owners allowed us to have access to an unusual Finnish barbecue hut located on the property near the waters edge and we had a fantastic cozy night in there cooking steaks and sheltering from the wind. We hope to come back in the summer!
Initially my wife and I had planned just a couple of day break. However the tranquil location with simply stunning views over Mulroy Bay, and this tastefully appointed, modern cottage - equipped with every convenience & comfort you might require, seduced us into spending a week.
A wonderful relaxing week, in a magical setting; and also being sailors with sailing dinghy in tow, the cottage's own direct access to the beach topped the week's stay.
We plan to come back!
We had a relaxing weekend at the holiday home with a large group of people. The accommodation was very clean, well-maintained, comfortable, with everything you ever need for a weekend getaway! The view was spectacular. Highly recommended to everyone (esp for groups, family, etc.)

The most magical place on earth. Gorgeous property on such a beautiful setting. We had an incredible time and will cherish the memories of this place forever. Also: nicest hosts on the planet!
We had a quick weekend stay at the cottages and it was absolutely amazing. From the amazing accommodations to the most beautiful views you will ever see, this will be a vacation you will never forget. Everything and everyone (from the sheep to the bartenders at the Singing Pub) are a delight.
Thanks for having us!
