Downhill Beach

At the eastern end of Downhill Beach Mussenden Temple is dramatically perched on a cliff top. Inspired by the Temple of Vesta the temple was built by Frederick Augustus Hervey and served as a library.


On this extensive beach scenes of “Dragonstone Castle“ were filmed for the series “Game of Thrones“.
