Carndonagh Presbyterian Church is located in the part of Donegal known as Inishowen, which is the most northerly peninsula in Ireland. It lies between Lough Swilly and Lough Foyle. The church and manse are situated outside the town at ‘the Hillhead’ and for this reason the church is known locally as Hillhead. Hillhead is a joint charge with Malin Presbyterian Church which is situated a few miles outside the village of Malin on the scenic route to Malin Head.
In many ways this part of Ireland could be described as the ‘undiscovered country.’ Despite its great natural beauty, golden beaches, handsome hills, woods and mountains, it remains relatively unspoilt by tourism. It has a character all of its own and it is quite unlike anywhere else in Ireland.
