Location description from owner

The County Donegal region

The Inishowen Peninsula is situated in the North West of the Republic of Ireland and it possesses such a range of sights and attractions that is often referred to as 'Ireland in Miniature'. This is the undiscovered Ireland, a world apart, a timeless place.It is the most northerly part of Ireland.Inishowen is well known as one of the most scenic parts of Ireland but the nature of that scenery combines with the up to date outdoor sporting facilities to provide the ideal base for an activity holiday.

The ocean and lakes are perfect for fishing, wind surfing, swimming, canoeing, water-skiing and sailing. The fishing enthusiast will be well catered for in Inishowen with sea, shore, river and lake fishing. Sea-Angling Festivals are held annually at Moville/Greencastle, Malin/Glengad, Leenan, Fahan and Culdaff. Inishowen is a golfer’s paradise with five magnificent golf links to choose from including Ballyliffin Golf Club which is about 10 mins drive from the house. The more energetic golfer will find sufficient challenge in the 18-hole links while those with a more leisurely approach will find the 9-hole links equally enjoyable. The hills and cliffs of Inishowen are still relatively unfrequented and little restraint is put on walkers. There are walks to suit all ages and all interest.

Clonmany

Spoil yourself with a swim in Lenan Beach, a walk on the cliffs at Dunaff Head or a visit to the waterfall at Glenevin where the river tumbles 30 feet over a pitch black rock into a foaming pool. The Gap of Mamore, five miles north of Buncrana passes between Mamore Hill and Urris at 800ft. above sea level. This is a favourite spot for tourist and local alike with its spectacular views of the Inishowen peninsula and beyond to the broad sweep of the Atlantic Ocean. The ruins of Lenan Fort can be seen at the bottom of the Gap.

BEACHES.

Lenan beach - 6 mins drive

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yszRNZWNfXE

Pollan Beach -6 miles from house with great waves.

Tullagh strand- 2 miles from house.
Tremore Beach- near Culdaff.
Culdaff Beach.
Kinnagoe Bay.
Lots of beaches too many to mention them all.

"Some of the best surfing in Europe can be found at the seaside town of Bundoran and at Pollan Bay at Ballyliffin, on the Inishowen Peninsula." "Golf is also a draw , with seven links listed in the top 50 courses of Britain and Ireland , including two at Ballyliffin...... each has spectacular scenery" Financial Times 5/07/08.

Enjoy the Clonmany Festival usually held the first week in August.
For those interested in Irish history there is the annual McGlinchey Summer School held in Clonmany over a long weekend in June (www.clonmany.com for more information). The School really draws a crowd to the area.

Doagh Famine Village.

"Santas' Lapland" Donegal.

The Isle of Doagh Visitor Centre is an interesting tour of local history and very close by – only open in the main season and at Christmas.
Tel 00 353 86 8464 749 for more information.

You can travel further afield to the world-famous Giant’s Causeway, in Northern Ireland which is accessible via the car ferry over the Foyle estuary at Greencastle. It would take about an hour and a half to get there round the lovely coast.
Also further afield there is also fantastic walking country within about an hour’s drive to the west – reputedly the highest sea cliffs in Europe at Slieve League near Glencolumcille. The journey there will take you past the Blue Stack mountains and the village of Killybegs, which is worth a visit.


Not too far away (about 40 minutes) is the slightly spooky Malin Head, the most northerly point in Ireland (and possibly the windiest, too). There are walks up to a look-out tower, and it is fair to say that it has not been ruined by tourism.
You can go on Marine boat trips (either to fish or look for birds/ seals/dolphins, which are prevalent) at Rathmullin, on the other side of the Swilly Estuary. Tel 00 353 74 58131. There is a ferry across the Swilly from Buncrana to Rathmullin. Check sailing times on 00353749381901.

The pretty coastal town of Moville on the other side of the peninsula is worth a visit. There is a good walk along the banks of the beautiful Foyle estuary from Moville to Greencastle, which takes about 45 minutes. There are also lots of places to get a coffee or a meal in Moville.Rosatos is really good for food.

EATING OUT.

Places to eat and drink are, as you might imagine, many and varied, and it’s worth trying out the craic in a few of your own. Clonmany boasts many bars which also do barfood,and just along the Urris road there is a pub called the Rusty Nail (2 miles from house) which does good food,and a 3 course Sunday dinner for 10 euros.
The Rusty Nail Tel: +353 (0)74 9376116.

Glen House is about 2 mins drive from the house, and they do great breakfasts,paninis,teas etc.
http://www.glenhouse.ie/

Ballyliffin Golf Club do good meals in the Linx Restaurant,and you don't have to be a member.

There are four hotels in Ballyliffin and they do good deals during the week, eg, a five course meal for two people for 36euros (approx).


At Simpson's Award Winning bar they cater for all tastes with freshly made-home cooked meals. Reasonably priced they are open 7 days a week 12noon - 10pm (9 pm Sundays) They also have a nightclub Tul na ri, one of the best entertainment venues around. Simpson's Bar Tel: +353 (0)74 9374499

Kealy’s seafood bar at Greencastle (about 20 minutes away) also has an excellent reputation, but is only open in high season. Tel 00 353 74 93 81010 for information and reservations.

There is a good pub, restaurant and live music venue (with surprisingly big names) at McGrory’s of Culdaff (www.mcgrorys.ie). The chowder is excellent! They have traditional live music as well.

Many places have live music but be prepared to wait until 10pm or beyond – the Irish like a late night.


WEDDINGS IN BALLYLIFFIN.

Going to a wedding in Ballyliffin? This is the perfect place to stay, just 4 miles away and loads of room to get ready, and your own space, with plenty of taxis available.

Visiting Santa at Doagh Island?
Why not make it a weekend break and visit Santa at the famous Island of Doagh, when it is transformed into a winter wonderland. Just a short drive away.Great for the kids.
