Magilligan Viewpoint: The Perfect First Stop on Your Wild Atlantic Way Journey

If you're starting your journey along the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal, the first stop you'll come across is the stunning Magilligan Viewpoint. Located between Greencastle and Moville, this viewpoint offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Binevenagh, Magilligan beach (in Northern Ireland), Lough Foyle, and on clear days, even Scotland.

While the viewpoint is often quite windy and misty, don't let that deter you. Bring a cup of hot drink and sit in your car, taking in the stunning scenery if the weather is less than ideal. On a clear day, this viewpoint is an unbeatable spot to stop and take some incredible photographs.

If you're on your way to Kinnagoe Bay or are a Wild Atlantic Way enthusiast, you won't want to miss out on the opportunity to stop at Magilligan Viewpoint. It's the perfect way to start your journey and take in the breathtaking natural beauty of the Irish coast.
