We have walked this path a number of times and it is fabulous! The scenery and views are breath-taking and there are beautiful houses along the walk to enjoy! Bring your swimsuit and stop for a dip on one of the lovely sandy coves along the way!

Visited on a beautiful day so saw it at its best. Vert well maintained path, quiet and with May places to stop off and admire the Lough. One of the reasons I would p
go back to Moville. First time there and delighted with the walk, the cleanliness and the general feeling of calm. Lovely little book cupboard at the start of the walk that I've never seen anywhere else and is a wonderful addition for locLs and visitors. Very good playground for kiddies at the start of the walk if you have children to appreciate it.

The Moville shore walk is a must for anyone visiting Moville, you can walk from Moville to Greencastle on this walk which is just over 3 miles long.

A wonderful, scenic walking route that follows the shoreline from Moville to Greencastle, about 4.4kms in one direction.

The views across Lough Foyle are simply breathtaking: from Culmore near Derry, across to Limavady, Magilligan, Benone Strand and Bishop's Gate. At Magilligan, marvel at the Martello Tower, built in the early 1800s to warn of a French attack! (Such buildings were dotted all along the northern and eastern coast of Ireland.) And lastly, but not least, enjoy the sight of Binevenagh Mountain.

This is a wee gem. Soak up the wildlife (I've seen kingfishers, Grey Herons, Otters and other animals/mammals) and pass the home of one of Ireland's most famous writers, Brian Friel. (On this note of famous people, at the bottom of Lafferty's Lane you might also see the Irish politician and Noble Prize winner, John Hume.)

On returning to Moville, drop into Farren's for a coffee and pastry, or pop into Bernie's Bistro or the Cosy Cottage for something more substantial.

On a warm sunny day, you might as well be on the French Cote d'Azur ...
