The Donegal region
One of the best things about Donegal is the wide choice of activities that it has to offer. Whether it is sampling the world famous craic and hospitality in the local pubs and restaurants, or walking on the numerous unspoilt beaches, we can guarantee that there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Atlantic Drive, a spectacular road around the Rosguill Peninsuala, provides breathtaking views of the classic, rugged Donegal coastline, facing onto the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Drive itself is approx. 12km long and is quite simply a must to see and do when staying in this part of Donegal.
Glenveagh Nartional Park is located in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains and is a remote and beautiful wilderness of rugged mountains, deep glens and pristine lakes. The park is home to Glenveagh Castle , a fine Victorian castle, along with the peaks of the two highest mountains in Donegal, namely Errigal and Slieve Slaght. A trip to Glenveagh is is quite simply a great family day out and there are fantastic organised, outdoor activities for the children during the summer months.
The nearby village of Dunfanaghy offers numerous craft shops, art galleries and coffee shops.
Ards Forest Park and Friary, located on the main road between Creeslough and Dunfanaghy, is another popular tourist destination.

We had a fantastic holiday ! The location is superb with views over the bay with so many uncrowded beaches. The house is truly a home from home and is finished to a high standard. It has the added benefit of being only a short walk into the town. We hope to pay a return visit very soon.
