Mamore Gap is a passageway between the mountains of Donegal, on the Inishowen Peninsula in Ireland. It is part of the famous Wild Atlantic Way and offers an incredible view of the ocean and the surrounding area and can be travelled by car, bike and on foot for the brave. The view from the top is simply sublime, and will offer you an authentic landscape, worthy of a postcard! Don’t forget your camera!
The Mamore Gap is a road that winds between the Urris Hills, small mountains on the Inishowen Peninsula that overlook the surrounding landscape. It is about 5km south of Dunaff on the Wild Atlantic Way.
You will have the possibility to park in a parking lot to take time to enjoy the view… And what a view ! On a clear day, the panorama extends to the Atlantic Ocean, and will reveal you the ultra-cut relief of the coast. All this in hallucinating colours, from blue to bright green: the colours of Ireland!
Note for those interested the existence of a small sacred well near the car park, as well as a place of worship with a statue of the Virgin Mary.
There is also the Mamore Waterfall, a waterfall located not far from the road: it offers a rather nice show!
