The Province of Ulster region
Donegal, in the Northwest of Ireland has proven a very popular destination for holiday makers for years. A place to satisfy walkers, golfers, anglers, families or couples. There is something for everyone. The scenery is stunning, the beaches fabulous and the people are renowned for their hospitality. Life definitely takes on a more laid back pace here.
The attractions in around Donegal are many and varied. Iniskeel Island at Narin is the seat of a much frequented pilgrimage in honour of St. Connell, one of Ireland's most remarkable early saints. It contains his Church and his cell and in it repose his remains. Also at Narin is a Portal Tomb prominent on the skyline quarter of a mile to the east of the Main road, 4 miles north-north-west of Ardara. It is one of the largest in Ireland.
Bealach na Gaeltachta, Gortahork is made up of 4 circular long distance walking routes which pass through the Gaeltacht areas. Each walk is between 50 - 70 km in length and encompass mountain, riverside, seaside and forest habitats. The scenery is spectacular and walkers have an excellent opportunity to sample the uniqueness of the Irish language, heritage and culture of the region.
Ardara Heritage Centre has long been a centre for weaving and various displays represent the history of tweed in this region. The Centre opened in 1995 and is building its collections and exhibitions. Crolly Dolls, Crolly is home to the exquisite world famous dolls. It is well worth a visit.
The Rossan Knitwear Collection was established in 1984 by the McNelis family. The business is situated in the beautiful Malinmore Valley at Glencolmcille. The designs incorporate traditional donegal handknit as well as fashion knits. Visit the Workhouse at Dunfanaghey and see and hear 'wee hannah' tell the true story of her long life. Find out what life was like in the Workhouse and use the study area to do further research ito The Famine, the Workhouse or the local history of this part of Donegal.
Rathlin O'Birne Island is 2km west from Malinbeg, dominated by the Lighthouse. Diving around here is wide and varied drop-offs, caves and gullies. An excellent off-shore dive site with average visibility of 20m. With great diving within such a short distance of the pier, it is easy to see why so many consider Malinbeg one of the top dive sites in Ireland. Rathlin O'Birne is also an important site for breeding seabirds with probably the largest colony of storm petrels in the North West.
Hannah McGuiness is an Irish based jewellery designer who qualified from the National College of Art & Design Dublin in Craft Design. Her designs are well worth seeing.
Lough Doon Ring Fort is located on a small island of the Portnoo to Rosbeg Road. It is an impressive 4.8m high walled enclosure covering the small island completely built 1000 B.C. In summer season small boats can be hired to allow access to the island.

"Excellent house in excellent location"
Thoroughly enjoyed staying here - lovely spacious house - very close to the beach and local facilities - only slight issue we had all week was that we could not watch RTE - definitely a disappointment!
Many thanks for your kind review. I will definitely look into getting RTE sorted for the house. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

"Well presented warm, comfy, cosy house in a quiet idyllic location"
When we arrived we were very impressed with the house itself which was very well presented and has everything you need - even a games table which was well utilised by us during the rain! Although it was October we still managed walks across the beach and fields each day (in-between rain showers!). Luckily the house is tiled thoughout which made it easy to sweep up the sand bought in on our shoes and dog! Our 9yr old daughter absolutely loved it and didn't want to leave, she particularly liked the sheep which roam across the land and wander right up to the glass doors! There is also a larger beach accessible from the village with it's very own ship wreck! We found the villagers and shop keepers to be very friendly, and everything we needed was available despite it being quite a small town. I can imagine this being even more pictureresque place during the summer months and would definitely recommend this property.
I'm glad you were impressed with the house as its important that people like the accommodation. Many thanks for your kind comments!

The house is located walking distance to the beach & in a golf area. Indeed a place of serenity. The kids love it most as they see a lot of sheep around the area, just outside the house. The place is close to a garage & local shops, but requires a car. The house itself is fantastic & very cozy if you just want to relax. The kitchen is big enough if one of you loves cooking. The bedrooms are well lit with the sun roof. The place has UK cable which is fantastic coz the kids love watching tv. Most importantly the price is very reasonable for your budget.
I would recommend this place to my friends if they're looking for a holiday home.
Thank you very much for your kind comments. I'm glad you found the are tranquil, as it is very much. Again, thank you.
