Donegal provides a brilliant backdrop for an activity holiday. Golfers need not go far to find a green, anglers can cast upon the many lakes, rivers mighty Atlantic Challenges Sea anglers. Escape to the unpopulated areas by bike or by foot and walkers are spoilt for choice with routes at both high and low level, as well as waymarked routes.

Dungloe is known locally as the Capital of the Rosses, its Irish name 'An Clochán Liath' (Grey Stone), has its origins in the period before the construction of the Dungloe Bridge in 1762. Prior to this date, entry to the town was by means of stepping-stone across the river.
Dungloe is an ideal touring base from which to explore the west coast of Donegal. One of the main reasons why people come to this area is its fame as a great place for fishing due in no small measure to the work of the Rosses Angling Association.

The wild bog and reed beds area haven for wildlife and the views of the bay, particularly the cliff views from the Cruit Island Golf Club south to Arranmore, are memorable.

"House even better than pictures suggest"
Very relaxing break, was impressed by the size and layout of the house on arrival. Views out of the front windows and sitting on the front porch were incredible. 15 minute walk from the town with a great choice of bars, 5 euro Taxi ride back if required. Owners could not have been more helpful even offering an extra night for free due to a cancellation which is unheard of, would definitely stay again.
Thanks R for your kind words - delighted you all had such a nice relaxing time with us on the hill in Dungloe - you'd be more than welcome in the future. Regards M

"The house was terrific and exceeded all of our expectations"
The view was fantastic and the location was terrific for exploring, beach and plenty of golf options nearby. The house was very well equipped and the view of the bay from every room was really great. Our only regret was that we could only stay for one week.

Let it say in short: breathtaking view - comfortable home - very friendly landlord - ideal place to start exploring Donegal - superb pub in town (stepping stone) - one of the most beautiful beaches nearby (left of the airport) - summary > we are sure to come back for more.

"Amazing HOST, beautiful HOME, views are SPECTACULAR, Dungloe has the WARMEST folk in Ireland!"
It all started famously as we were met at the driveway by our owner/host Mary. The views from this holiday home are spectacular whether looking North, South, East or West. Described perfectly in the rent ad, additional information that was provided by the Tansey's was very helpful as we planned out our week in Co. Donegal. But don't look to stray too far...the people and establishments in Dungloe were first rate. We were treated so warmly by everyone but one place in particular takes the honorable mention award....The Stepping Stone...don't miss it. Rest assured your stay in this holiday rental will be enjoyed to the fullest and stress free of any worries. Bedding was comfortable, amenities were all in place in working order, fireplace was ready to enjoy a Peat fire every evening. As I told Mary when it was time to depart...if I could be a "squatter" I'd never leave. To potential renters---enjoy this slice of Irish Heaven!! The Lacey's, Kelly & Patrick
