Fintra, Killybegs

August 2013

This is a lovely Blue Flag beach, not as large as some of its neighbours but all the better for that.

There was a gradual wade in to clear, fresh and slightly choppy waters. We swam here on a sunny August morning and we were the only ones swimming. No change there. The beach has dunes to the rear and rocks at one end for shelter. There is a small wall beneath the car park which will protect you from the wind. There is also plenty of place to play on the soft sand.

Fintra has a reasonably sized car park, but it must get very busy in the fine weather. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. The car park also has a couple of portaloos. There is a slipway from the car park to the beach, but it has a barrier across it so, once again, no wheelchair access. You will manage easily enough with a buggy.

Directions: From Donegal take the N56 to Killybegs. Drive through the town and pick up the R263 signposted for Kilcar. After a couple of kilometres watch for a left turn for the beach.
