No trip to Donegal is complete without exploring its miles of golden beaches, especially Ballymastocker Bay, voted the second most beautiful beach in the world by Observer Magazine. With 1,100km of spectacular Atlantic coastline wrapping around Donegal, there is no shortage of beaches to explore. County Donegal has retained all of its 13 Blue Flag Beach awards making it the Irish county with the most Blue Flag Beaches in 2013 Ballymastocker bay is only a 10minute stroll from Donegal Ardglass Cottages.
The Meadows Fishery is a two acre stream-fed fishery which opened a few years ago and now offers the opportunity for anglers to enjoy some first rate, and perhaps unique, fishing for rainbows within sight of the sea.
Admire the fabulous views over Mulroy Bay towards Muckish Mountain as you try for a rainbow trout at the Meadows Trout Fishery located just off the R246 north of Kerrykee.
