St Johns Point Donegal Location And Getting There
Saint Johns Point peninsula is in the south of County Donegal, near the picturesque fishing port and harbor of Killybegs. It is easily accessible by car or bus from
anywhere in Ireland via Donegal Town, as well as by air or sea. Local car hire is available...
From Donegal Town head west for approximately 20 kilometers in the direction of Killybegs on the N56 national secondary route.
The N56 passes along the northern end of Saint John's Point
peninsula, through the two villages of Dunkineely and Bruckless.
You'll get to Dunkineely first. Bruckless village is roughly two kilometers further on.
The junction for the scenic road that leads to the very end of the peninsula is just outside Dunkineely. Drive
through and out of the village, then immediately look for a narrow road
to your left, signposted for Saint Johns Point. Don't worry if you miss your turn, though, you'll very quickly come to another road that you can take instead.
