You’ve heard about Kilarney and the castle of Dunloe
The hills of County Wicklow and the moonlight in Mayo
There’s some would that Galway Bay is where they love to be
But the lovely Inishowen is the only place for me

From Carndonagh down to Malin town, Culdaff and Bonagee
Oh the lovely Inishowen is the only place for me

From the peaceful shores of Swilly to the waters of the Foyle
In the valley of Glentoghter you may linger just a while
But the scene that haunts my memory when I am far away
Is the crimson sun descending down behind Strabreaga Bay

From Carndonagh down to Malin Town, Culdaff and Bonagee
Oh the lovely Inishowen is the only place for me

Sure no matter where I wander and wherever I may be
Even with the sights that dazzle and the wonders I may see
I always will come back again to the place I long to be
To the lovely Inishowen, it’s the only place for me.

From Carndonagh down to Malin Town, Culdaff and Bonagee
Oh the lovely Inishowen is the only place for me
Yes, the lovely Inishowen is the only place for me
