If fishing isn't your thing, there's plenty of other things to be getting along with during your time in Killybegs. A walk around the historic harbour is a real must on a quiet evening. Loiter on Killybegs' Shore Road and watch the fishermen sort their catch of some of the Atlantic's most coveted aquatic fare. Alternatively, if fishing really isn't your thing, take a walk along the coast where you'll find Fintra Sands. This rousing stretch of golden coast was awarded Blue Flag status for the quality of its water as well as its first-rate safety, making it an excellent place to take the children for a day at the beach; there's also great views of County Sligo's Benbulben Mountains from the water's edge, so if you're into photography, make sure you've brought the camera!
With other attractions including a peppering of ancient sites, a guided heritage walk around the town and a plethora of award-winning restaurants, make Killybegs your destination of choice for an invigorating cottage holiday in West Ireland.
