About this location
The Province of Ulster region
Buncrana is the perfect location to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Donegal. It is the gateway to the North West of Ireland. Centrally located in an area in Donegal allowing easy access to Inishowen, Letterkenny and Northern Ireland.
Derry-Londonderry (City Of Culture 2013) is a 20 min drive, Letterkenny is a 35 min drive and Belfast approx. 1.5hrs.
Malin Head, Irelands most northernly point is approx. 30 mins away.
Buncrana Town and nearby surrounding areas have so much to offer for travellers.
The local scenic beauty is most definitely a huge attraction. Sandy beaches, numerous viewpoints from rolling hills, cliffs and mountains.
An ideal way to enjoy the scenic beauty of this area is by taking the "Inishowen 100" route plan by the local tourist industry which shows off Inishowens best features throughout a 100km journey.
The nature of the local people is welcoming and warming. People here have a genuine and caring interest in other people and this is a most unique and pleasant experience for travellers from largely populated areas to sample.
A relaxing holiday in the countryside is what you will get yet there are cities with large populations as nearby as 20 minutes drive.
Buncrana town itself offers numerous attractions for a visitor:-
Sandy beaches; Local fishing and angling centre; Fahan Marina; Kayaking; Walks and hiking route; Orienteering in Swan Park; Equestrian Centre; Historic monuments - O' Dohertys Keep, The Castle, Dunree Fort and An Grianan Aileach to name but a few; Summer Ferry crossing service between Buncrana Pier and Rathmullan Pier; Public Leisure Centre; Childrens Play Park on the shore green; Public Tennis Courts; 2 No Golf Courses - Buncrana Municipal (9 Hole) and North West Golf Course (18 Hole); 3 Hotels (one with Spa and Private Leisure Centre); Local Kids Indoor Play Centre (Wains World); One of Irelands oldest town cinemas...a true gem in our little town that us locals are very proud of; 4 Large Supermarkets - Aldi, Lidl, Supervalu and Eurospar; Many fantastic restaurants to suit various budgets; 15 bars (many with live music); 1 popular nightclub and 1 live band venue.
Buncrana hosts an annual music festival (normally in July) and the nearby town of Clonmany plays host to a hugely popular country music festival every year which brings with it people from all corners of the world! The nearby village of Ballyliffin also plays host to the world renowed Ballyliffin Golf Course. Derry and Letterkenny both have multiplex cinemas and bowling alleys; Halfway Go Karting Centre, Burnfoot is close by for visitors with a need for speed ;)
Buncrana is a superb location for people of all ages. It has something to offer for everyone and really is worth a visit...come and see for yourself ;)

Beautiful house with all mod cons. Very spacious bedrooms and downstairs wet room. More than adequate parking for the three cars we had with us. The only downside was that the google map showing it's location is inaccurate. We were looking for a property closer to the centre of Buncrana and this property is approximately a mile and a half away; though this isn't a problem if you have your own transport.
Thanks so much for your lovely review. We really appreciate that you have taken the time to write some lovely comments. I have double checked my google map for the property and it actually is accurate. You can measure distances off it and it is up to date. Perhaps you thought by looking at it that the property was closer to the main street. It is indeed 2km from the Main Street. Not really walking distance but pretty close if you have a car.
Many thanks again for your lovely review.

"Great house in convenient location."
We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at this house. It is in a nice, quiet location yet convenient to the town, beach and park and also for touring the Inishowen Peninsula. We had a mixture of older and younger children with us and they enjoyed skateboarding and scootering round the back of the house. We also had 2 big dogs who enjoyed the space.The owner and key holder of the property could not have been more friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended.
We are delighted that you have taken some time to write lovely comments about your stay and our assistance. Nothing pleases us more than happy customers so we are always willing to help guests with information before and during their stay if they need it.
We would love to welcome you again in the future if you decide to visit again.
Thanks so much :)

"Good but improvements needed"

Hi and thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really do appreciate everyones feedback.
I am really sorry that you seem to feel misled regarding the meters installed for the electricity and heating in the property. This is clearly outlined in both the online advert under the tariff section and also within the booking form which you were forwarded by email on confirmation of your booking.
This is our first year letting the property and as yet there is no Wi-Fi. We did not advertise that Wi-Fi was available either. There are very few rented properties in our area that do offer Wi-Fi as it works best with an installed telephone line which is not very practical when the home is offered on a holiday let basis.
A tumble dryer is indeed an efficient household luxury item that we do not have yet. We will perhaps look into purchasing one further down the line. This is still our first 6 months.
I'm sorry that you could not find the knives. They were in the kitchen drawer. We always ask our clients to contact us during their stay if they have any problems. Things can be sorted at once if they do so.
I'm glad that you had a nice time at the property and would love to welcome your return in the future.
Many thanks again,
