This 3 bedroom house is situated on an elevated site in the seaside resort of Downings enjoying wonderful views over Sheephaven bay and Muckish mountain. The house is in a peaceful location and has a large garden with swings and a slide. It is very suitable for a family holiday. The house is located 1km from the village where there are various, bars hotels and restaurants. There is also an excellent coffee shop called Mc Nutts. The house is conveniently placed for golf,cycling, fishing, hill walks, horse riding and numerous water sports. There are several excellent beaches in the immediate vicinity. The nearby Rosapenna Golf Links boasts two renowned 18 hole championship courses and there is also pitch and putt, driving range and a tennis court. There is a leisure centre with swimming pool and kids indoor soft play area within 2 min walk from house.

The singing pub with its thatched roof and peat fire is good for traditional music and has a great seafood restaurant. It. Is a 15 minute walk on the lane behind house.


Carrigart is a picturesque village 2 miles from the house where you will find horse riding stables and the Mevagh Dive Centre - Donegal's first purpose built dive centre. There are good supermarkets and butchers. We recommend Mickey Joes Country Store for superb meat! It also sells groceries and various hardware.

The famous Atlantic Drive is a short but very dramatic road around the Peninsula. The drive is only about 12km long so you can best appreciate it if you cycle or walk.

Glenveagh National Park is within half an hour drive, an excellent park for a family day out. Ards Forest Park has numerous walks and an outdoor childrens play area. The Friary has a lovely coffee shop with good views and from here you can walk to the secluded Monks Bay and on to Ards Forest . At the foot of Errigal mountain lies Dunlewy lakeside centre which has something for all the family. In Dunfanaghy there is a workhouse famine museum and various walks around Horn head.Churchill has the famous Glebe House & Gallery as well as the Colmcille Heritage Centre.

The Lough Salt Drive is another scenic dive in the immediate locality. This drive will bring you through the village of Glen where the renowned Glen Bar is situated. This cosy pub is full of atmosphere and serves excellent food.
