Murvagh is a blue flag beach located a few kilometres outside of Donegal town. This is another of the county’s wide and long stretches of sand. Again you really have to watch the tides here. When we arrived the tide must have been at least a kilometre out, so it can be a long trek to the water.
The beach is also quite exposed. You will find shelter in the dunes, but you might bring your windbreak if you are planning to stay. After your swim there is plenty of room for a long walk and any amount of room for children to play.
Murvagh has a decent car park and access to the beach is via a sandy path which isn’t wheelchair accessible. You will manage a buggy with an effort. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.
Blue Flag beach.
From Donegal town take the N15 toward Sligo. A few kilometres outside the town watch out for a right turn signposted for the beach. Follow the not very good signposting and it will lead you to the car park
