Things you could never get boring along the Atlantic Drive as the coasted scenery is truly amazing. The long golden beaches speak for themselves and are a great and wonderful escape for the whole family. The summer days here are truly wonderful but there is nothing like feeling a cold breeze on our Wild Atlantic Drive at the height of Winter. Downings offers a number of activities for kids from horse-riding, indoor play arena and a indoor swimming pool, crazy golf and a pitch in putt or for the more mature golfer there is the Rosapenna Golf Club which is an exceptional course with beautiful surroundings. There is a local diving school and all the water sport lessons are available during the Summer months. Dowings and Atlantic Drive are definitely a spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
