Maghery in Donegal is a quite exposed point break that has unreliable waves. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds are from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the west. No point break here. Best around low tide. The location means that it never gets crowded. Take care of rocks in the line up.
