Downings beach is located in front of the village of Downings (Na Dnaibh) on Donegal's Rosguill Peninsula, Ireland. Facing into the sheltered waters of Sheephaven Bay, this is a relatively safe spot for ocean swimming and other water-sports. As a Blue Flag beach, Downings has all the amenities you'd expect for a family day at the beach. There are also lifeguards on duty during the summer months. Unsurprisingly, this is a popular beach during the holiday season, but it never gets so busy as to spoil the experience.
