Don't miss the Head walk. There are stunning views from the top of the hill and a wee car park up there to save the walk up but it is worth it. Beach is small but pretty. Had loads of kids on it doing some...More

I never actually have entered the Shroove light house, but even from afar, it is very picturesque and a beautiful addition to the Wild Atlantic way.

Lovely location and beautiful unspoilt beach beside the lighthouse. You can only look at the lighthouse from the road. It seems to be a private dwelling so go to FANAD lighthouse instead. Great informative tour and you can explore inside and outside of it and...More

While visiting Inishowen recently in our campvervan we were told we were welcome to overnight at the car park at Shroove lighthouse/beach. The lighthouse is privately owned and there is no access to it but you get a nice view of it from the car...More

This is a privately owned property and access cannot be gained even to the outside of the building. Signage is present to remind visitors that they arent welcome. This isnt an attraction... merely a landmark!!!

Lovely safe beach - nice easy waves breaking on to perfect sandy beach. Cove is also great for getting out of a South Westerly breeze. Blue flag / lifeguards on duty during the summer.

Lovely and secluded little lighthouse and golden beach next to it. Perfect for a swim. It is located a few kilometers north of Greencastle, don't look for it in Moville. After Moville, there is a sign for Stroove.

Hidden, quiet, beautiful,want peace and quiet here with pretty beach and walkway. Very beautiful with wonderful views of the sea reaching over to Ballycastle and Scotland too. Would love to pop over anytime just for the hidden peace of it.
