Fanad is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland with rugged coastlines, sheltered bays with idyllic secluded beaches framed by majestic heather covered hills. It is a Gealtacht (Irish Speaking area), located in North Donegal around 40 minutes north of Letterkenny, the principle town in the county. Although secluded, amenities are plentiful in the peninsula – from surfing to kayaking, beachcombing to pitch'n'put, from beautiful Atlantic drives to breath-taking hillwalking, Fanad has something for everyone. Some of the best golfing in the world is a few minutes' drive away at Portsalon or Rosapenna Golf Links. The peninsula is dotted with coves and small harbours and fishing is not only an attractive offer for the interested tourist but a way of life for some of the peninsula inhabitants.

Be sure to check out the imposing Fanad Lighthouse, not far from the property, or take a trip to the picturesque seaside villages of Carrigart and Downings, less than four mile across the new erected Harry Blaney Mulroy Bridge, itself worth the attraction connecting the Fanad and Rosguill Peninsulas. Why not try a pint of Guinness and catch some traditional Irish music in one of the friendly family run pubs while you're there.

All the attractions of county Donegal and Derry are all within a day trip distance, so why not take in Glenveagh National Park, a shopping day in the City of Derry, The tallest Sea Cliffs in Europe at Sliabh League or visit Doagh Famine Village. These are just some of what Ireland's third biggest county has to offer.
