Carrigart is a picturesque village 2 miles from the house where you will find horse riding stables and the Mevagh Dive Centre - Donegal's first purpose built dive centre. There are good supermarkets and butchers. We recommend Mickey Joes Country Store for superb meat! It also sells groceries and various hardware.

The famous Atlantic Drive is a short but very dramatic road around the Peninsula. The drive is only about 12km long so you can best appreciate it if you cycle or walk.

Glenveagh National Park is within half an hour drive, an excellent park for a family day out. Ards Forest Park has numerous walks and an outdoor childrens play area.
