The house is situated on a hillside position opposite the Blue Flag Lisfannon beach, Lough Swilly Marina and Sailing club. The house is constructed to the highest design standards, with granite worktops, Neff appliances and geothermal underfloor heating throughout. Designed to maximise the breathtaking views, coupled with many windows and high ceilings enhances the feeling of space/light. All windows to front and side of house have magnificent views over the water and mountains.

The house is located on a hillside location and the site is sloped as you can see in the lead photo so younger children should be supervised outside.

The area boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland, from the well known ward winning blue flag beaches to small secluded bays coves. The nearest beach – Lisfannon Beach - is a tblue flag beach and only a two minute walk from the house. It runs for approximately one and quarter miles from Fahan marina to merge with The White Strand beach a Blue flag facility. There are 13 Blue Flag designated beaches in Donegal.

"Spacious, comfortable and well equipped accommodation with magnificent views"

We throughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It was spacious, very comfortable, clean and well equipped, and more than met the needs of our family of ten - three generations ranging from 6 years to 60+. The views from the house over Lough Swilly are magnificent and the surrounding countryside is very beautiful. Booking the accommodation was very easy and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return to it ourselves in the near future.

We are always delighted when our guests leave satisfied as we try to meet everyones expectations and make their holiday something special. Many thanks for taking the time to leave this review and we look forward to welcoming you back to Fahan sometime in the future.

"the perfect beach house for a weekend !"

12 Beacon Hill is absolutely gorgeous! I've been there with my friends and family (we were 10) and we had a wonderful weekend. We did a BBQ in the garden where from we could enjoy the beautiful view. Thank you Carmel for preparing everything for us!
There is a beach in 5min walking distance. We knew that the house will be great (from pictures) but it was even better than expected!
I highly recommend this place!

Thankyou for booking with us, for your lovely comments and taking the time to leave a review- any time you want to come again will organise a discount.
warmest regards

"Spacious accommodation with cracking views"

I booked this accommodation for 3 couples and 2 small children (4 and 2). Throughout the whole booking / arrival process Carmel was really helpful and efficient providing ideas of what to experience l… More

Im really glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback. Just to clarify; the gas burner is 3.5 KW Neff appliance, specifically designed for stir frying and other ccoking methods where considerable instantaneous heat is required. It is regularly maintained and has safety cutoff features in the event it is left on for long periods.

As the house is built on a hill it has landscaped gardens and terraces that have been designed to make best use of the hillside location. The extent of the landscaping is evident from the extenal pictures of the house and I will amend the booking description to advise future customers that young children will need to be supervised when playing outside.

I can only apologise if some of the crockery and kitchenware was not up to the cleanliness standards that we pride ourselves on. It's worth noting we had a party of guests, prior to your visit, that left the house in such a state of disarray that it required very significant additional cleaning and preparation before your arrival.

Thanks again for the feedback as it only serves to help us improve the holiday experience for future guests in this magnificant part of the world.

"What a house!!!"

Amazing house - spacious, clean, child friendly and comfortable. 4 large rooms, easily accommodating our party of 4 adults and 4 children (aged 10,7,7,2). All the rooms clean and decorated well. The kitchen is amazing with the centre island which was great for preparing family meals and with a large dining table for us all to sit around made for noisy but enjoyable meal times! Small garden at the rear of the house which was ideal for the kids to run about in. Fahan is well situated for doing some site seeing too - we visited neighbouring BunCrana, LetterKenny, Coleraine, Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. Don't have any complaints as everything was as advertised. Owner also kept in touch prior to going and very informative re surrounding area and attractions. Will definitely be returning! Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday.

many thanks for your lovely review - I am delighted you all had a great holiday
