This fantastic home offers you the opportunity to stay in a rare and precious location for those who recognise its majesty and inherent value. The Gap of Dunloe, protected by planning laws, is still a wild and untamed place with hardly a single human hand on the landscape. It has remained unchanged for thousands of years with mountains whose ancient age predates that of the Himalayas. Situated on the Gap road and en-route to the mountains, the rear of the house is a vista full of interesting wildlife, birds, horses and deer who often feed in the back garden in the morning and evening. With the mountain wrapping itself like a blanket around the house, this is a place of contemplation where you can simply step back from the busy lives we lead and take sanctuary in the beauty of the area. This is a place to reconnect with nature and is even more awesome as you climb up into the mountains, a breathtaking journey that must be experienced.
