The name of this beach comes from the name of the valley that leads into it, which in turn comes from its Irish name: Gleann Ui Chaomhanaigh which means Kavanagh’s Glen, that is “the glen belonging to the Kavanagh family”.

Glenagivney is the more remote of the two glens, or valleys, that open into Kinnagoe Bay on the North East coast of the Inishowen Peninsula in North Donegal
They are separated by a rocky promontory and each is fronted by a sandy beach strewn with boulders.

Glenagivney beach can be reached either by scrambling down an overgrown path from the hill side above or by walking the length of the other beach and clambering over the rocks that divide the two beaches.

Either way it is worth the effort.

On a sunny summer afternoon you might find one other party of visitors joining you – but there is a good chance that you will have the place to yourself.

What is even better is that this sheltered sun-trap of a beach has its own local climate. On a typical Irish July day when it rains inland the beach here will often be dry and sunny.

Techie Photographic Detail
This square panoramic image was created by combining 9 separate digital photographs covering every angle of the view.

The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5D with a 16 mm fisheye lens and stitched and blended together using Hugin (a free open source program).

Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It is capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.

I have written a short journal entry introducing the method by which these panoramas are created, it is called:
“Creating a Stereographic Panorama – the Basic Idea”
