Maghery in Donegal is a fairly exposed point break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell direction is from the west. There is no point break. Best around low tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Take care of rocks in the line up.
