The Donegal region

Donegal is without a doubt the most prolific County in Ireland when it comes to coastal and mountain scenery.There are literally hundreds of miles of amazing coastline with magnificent sandy beaches located in between.


As soon as you arrive in Dunfanaghy you immediately get that "holiday feeling" which emanates from this very pretty seaside town. The town has evolved as a centre of relaxation with pubs, restaurants, craft shop and art galleries.

"Horn Head really should be called Heaven Head"

Well what can I say other than amazing... Very hard to put into words the sheer beauty of this magnificent property and location.

The cottage has a very rustic and traditional feel but with lots of modern features and technology that have been blended perfectly.

We stayed for a long weekend but wish we had of booked a longer stay. The town of Dunfanaghy is small but has plenty of great pubs which provide live music every night of the week and are great for a nights entertainment. If you enjoy walking and taking in the sights this is also the place to be.

Thanks very much for a great stay will be back in the near future all being well but this time for much longer I hope!!
