The Donegal region
Donegal is the most northerly county on the island of Ireland, but still only three hours from Dublin. Explore wild rugged Atlantic shores and peaceful tranquil lakeland, dense woodland and wide open spaces.
Visit the beautiful Glenveagh National Park and Castle, or explore one of the many touring routes - travel from Horn Head in Sheephaven Bay to Malin Head in Inishowen and pass through some of the most picturesque towns and villages and witness spectacular coastal views.
In the south of the county, the famous Donegal Bay stretches from beautiful Bundoran to Donegal Town and onto Glencolmcille. View it all from the sea cliffs of Slieve League while watching fishing boats from Killybegs bringing home their fish catch.
Experience the heritage and culture of the Donegal people who are renowned for their special warmth, welcome and friendliness. With Ireland’s largest Irish speaking Gaeltacht region you can immerse yourself in language, song and dance. Beidh fáilte romhat i nDún na nGall.
Donegal provides a brilliant backdrop for an activity holiday. Golfers need not go far to find a green, anglers can cast upon the many lakes, rivers mighty Atlantic Challenges Sea anglers. Escape to the unpopulated areas by bike or by foot and walkers are spoilt for choice with routes at both high and low level, as well as waymarked routes. Trek along the vast landscape on horseback with many equestrian centres throughout the county or partake in something a little more demanding at one of our outdoor adventure centres where watersport enthusiasts are well catered for.
The county is also home to some of the finest restaurants and the most delightfully prepared dishes to be found anywhere in Ireland. The people of Donegal have never lost the art of preparing good food, authentic dishes and cuisine that is truly delicious. It is a place where the rich wilderness and rugged landscape provide only the freshest of local produce. With many restaurants and pubs offering good cooking, a hearty meal is always on the menu.
Dungloe is known locally as the Capital of the Rosses, its Irish name 'An Clochán Liath' (Grey Stone), has its origins in the period before the construction of the Dungloe Bridge in 1762. Prior to this date, entry to the town was by means of stepping-stone across the river.
Dungloe is an ideal touring base from which to explore the west coast of Donegal. One of the main reasons why people come to this area is its fame as a great place for fishing due in no small measure to the work of the Rosses Angling Association. With 130 lakes, the visiting angler can enjoy the superb fishing for salmon, trout and sea trout. The wild bog and reed beds area haven for wildlife and the views of the bay, particularly the cliff views from the Cruit Island Golf Club south to Arranmore, are memorable. Nearby golf courses include the very scenic Cruit Island, Portnoo and Gweedore with many beautiful beaches some of which are Blue Flag.
Glenveigh National Park is approx 40 minutes away and is well worth a visit covering 16,000 hectares and includes Glenveigh Estate, Derryveagh Mountains and Lough Veagh. It is home to Ireland's largest herd of red deer and some roam the hill behind this cottage. Dunlewey Visitor Centre and Mount Errigal are just a few of the many other local major attractions within easy reach.
Also the home of the Mary From Dungloe Festival, which takes place each summer attracting people from all over Ireland and indeed from all over the world. Now also the home of the Daniel O'Donnell Visitor Centre (www.danielodonnellvisitorcentre.com) ,there are too many attractions to mention individually within a 25km radius of Dungloe - see www.DiscoverIreland.ie (select Donegal then Dungloe and local attractions), www.donegalcounty.com and www.irelandnorthwest.ie. These websites will link you to the many and very varied attractions in the area.

"House even better than pictures suggest"
Very relaxing break, was impressed by the size and layout of the house on arrival. Views out of the front windows and sitting on the front porch were incredible. 15 minute walk from the town with a great choice of bars, 5 euro Taxi ride back if required. Owners could not have been more helpful even offering an extra night for free due to a cancellation which is unheard of, would definitely stay again.
Thanks R for your kind words - delighted you all had such a nice relaxing time with us on the hill in Dungloe - you'd be more than welcome in the future. Regards M

"The house was terrific and exceeded all of our expectations"
The view was fantastic and the location was terrific for exploring, beach and plenty of golf options nearby. The house was very well equipped and the view of the bay from every room was really great. Our only regret was that we could only stay for one week.
