Buncrana, which is also known as 'Parthas Eireann' or Ireland's Paradise, is the main urban centre and largest town in the picturesque Inishowen Peninsula. Its strong industrial, commercial and tourist tradition, outstanding scenery and high quality natural environment, lends itself to a town with great potential.

Recent years have seen significant developments with regard to retail space, commercial and tourist development and a high standard of accessible accommodation becoming available. The town boasts three fine hotels, and numerous bord fáilte approved bed and breakfasts.
