The area surrounding Falcarragh is one of amazing natural beauty, with the Derryveagh mountains to one side and the beautiful unspoilt beaches of Drumnatinney, Ballyness Bay and Magheroarty on the other. The islands of Tory and Innisboffin lie just off the coast. This varied landscape is ideal for outdoor  activity enthusiasts.
