About this location

The Province of Ulster region

Steeped in heritage, history and culture the North West represents a unique opportunity to sample a rich array of sights, sounds and tastes waiting to enrich your holiday experience.

Visitor attractions range from heritage centres, national parks, museums and castles to traditional music sessions, storytelling and dancing. On the fringe of the Donegal Gaeltacht area you will find yourself entering a world where Irish is still the first language of the local community.


Dunfanaghy is a small village. Formerly a fishing port it has reinvented itself to become a major tourist destination in Donegal. The village is also home to a golf club, several art galleries and craft shops, and a museum, situated in part of a former workhouse, which describes the effects of the Irish Potato Famine on Dunfanaghy.

Across the bay from Dunfanaghy is Horn Head, which shelters Dunfanaghy from the Atlantic Ocean and is an Irish Natural Heritage Area. Dunfanaghy is close to Port-na-Blagh and Marble Hill, both of which also have popular beaches. Other sights in the vicinity include: Ards Forest Park, Ards (Capuchin) Friary, Glenveagh National Park, Doe Castle and the Derryveagh Mountains, the most prominent being Muckish Mountain and Mount Errigal.

Dunfanaghy stables offer unspoiled locations, endless mountain tracks and remote sandy beaches that go on for as far as the eye can see, which will exhilarate any rider beyond belief. They offer a wide variety of rides on willing responsive horses, cobs and ponies which will please both the experienced and inexperienced riders.

"Location, Location, Location!"

We are keen walkers, particularly hill walking. This house is ideally located to access some of the best hill walking that Donegal has to offer - Horn Head, Muckish, Melmore Head, Glenveagh, Bloody Foreland and many more. For the less adventurous, there are plenty of low level walking opportunities too, including the superb, long Dunfanaghy beach the Famine Walk and Tramore Strand. The village of Dunfanaghy has everything you could want just a stroll away - shops, pubs, hotel, take-aways and a thriving local atmosphere. We found the house with no trouble and found it to be immaculately kept. In fact we thought that the photos on the site did not do it justice! The golf course is a short walk away alongside the beach which is even closer - on the sand within 2 minutes. We can thoroughly recommend this house which can sleep many more than the two of us. It has two bathrooms - one up, one down - so we didn't even have to go upstairs. We would go back again on our next trip to Donegal.

"Wonderful scenery, lovely house - great location, bright, clean and well-equipped."

The scenery in this part of Donegal is breath-taking. The house is ideally located on the edge of the village of Dunfanaghy, two minutes walk from the golf course. Horse-riding, surfing, kayaking and other water sports are all available. The house is lovely – bright, beautifully decorated and really well-equipped. The beach is at the end of the small cul-de sac of 5 houses. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely book this house again.
