How to Find the Sliabh Sneacht Centre:

The centre is about 5 miles / 8 kilometers north of Buncrana town, on the main road to Carndonagh / Clonmany / Ballyliffin.

Through the town, follow roadsigns for the R238 to Carndonagh. Approx ONE mile after Buncrana turn LEFT over Cockhill Bridge (Can’t miss it – there are big roadworks, opposite the parish church + large graveyard)

Once over the bridge, continue for 4 miles/  6 K approx. The centre is a new building on the right side of the road, just BEFORE the “Y” junction where the road splits (right to Carndonagh, left to Clonmany)

If you miss the gate, indicate in with care at The North Pole Bar across the road, and make your way back – keep an eye for traffic on all three roads!
