mng presents Rock agus Roam on Gabhla Island - A unique and exciting experience guaranteed.

"Set foot on Gabhla... and listen to the silence! The sounds of the modern world rarely penetrates this unspoilt and tranquil oasis, yet it is only one mile from the mainland at Gaoth Dobhair. Its oceanic scenery inspires artists and photographers alike. Towering cliffs pose challenges for daring rock climbers. This beautiful island will take you away from it all and allow you to unwind with the sound and harmony of the sea. With beautiful sandy beaches, many wild bird species and an abundance of photo opportunities". (Donegal Islands Brochure)
