Cruises from Greencastle
Greencastle lies at the northernmost tip of Ireland in County Donegal, the Republic of Ireland. It is situated on the west bank of Lough Foyle, the estuary of the River Foyle. (On the east bank is Northern Ireland, UK.) Greencastle is a commercial fishing port. As fishing has declined, the town is a typical Donegal holiday village.
Its name derives from the ruins of 14thC Anglo-Norman Northburgh Castle, 500m from the port. Adjacent to the castle is a Martello fort built to stop Napoleon. Cruise ships tender to the port.
