Vintage style art print of Rossnowlagh Beach in County Donegal.
Rossnowlagh (Irish: Ros Neamhlach, meaning “heavenly headland”) is a seaside village in south County Donegal, Ireland. The area’s 3 km long beach is frequented by walkers, surfers, wind-surfers, kite-surfers and swimmers.
Rossnowlagh is one of Ireland’s and Europe’s best Blue Flag surfing beaches. As the slowly rising beach faces westward into the Atlantic Ocean, and the fact that Donegal Bay has a funnel-like shape, it can increase the size of the waves, especially in winter when some huge rollers are generated and it has been known to have waves up to 7 metres (20 ft) high. Rossnowlagh has good safe facilities and has excellent water quality.
