An exploration of the wildlife, history and landscape of Inch Wildfowl Reserve

Welcome to the Inch Wildfowl Reserve. Our plan is to deliver a world-class visitor and outdoor recreation attractions at Inch Wildfowl Reserve, Inch Levels, Co. Donegal. The project is funded by the European Union through the INTERREG IVA Programme.

Our logo is a Whooper Swan flying in a bright winter sky, and in many ways captures the heart beat of this reserve as thousands of winter wildfowl use these sites as a first stop on their migratory journey south for the winter months.

It’s not unusual at Inch during winter months to see fields with several thousand Greylag Geese or Whooper Swans grazing, or to witness the return of the birds to the lake at dusk, one of the most impressive displays of bird watching you are likely to witness.

The site has a wealth of wildlife to experience and the pathway infrastructure caters for outdoor recreational activity including walking, running and cycling. You may also visit in the car and experience the coastal views at one of our car parks where information signs are erected.
