The peninsula, extending between Lough Swilly and Lough Foyle and tapering towards Malin Head (the most northerly point of Ireland), is mainly a mountainous region. Its most conspicuous summit is Slieve Snacht (2,019 feet) in the centre of the peninsula. A 100-mile (161 km) circular, scenic drive known as the 'Inis Eoghain 100' is signposted round the wild and beautiful landscape of the Inishowen Peninsula. The whole area is an ideal holiday region, and several resorts offer good recreational facilities.
The main town of Inishowen is Buncrana, a popular seaside resort on the eastern shore of Lough Swilly with golf (9) and 4 miles (6 km) away at Fahan golf (18), tennis, cinema and dancing. A leisure centre open all year is equipped with swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and gymnasium.
