The Space

Poised between the mountains and the sea, this splendid area of the Donegal Gaeltacht is a 15 minute drive from Glenveagh National Park with it's castle and golden eagle colony, or under 10 minutes the other direction brings you to the spectacular Atlantic beaches of Falcarragh's Five Mile Strand and the Tory Island ferry departing from Magheroarty. Don't worry, we couldn't pronounce these names at first either!

Guest Access

All rooms and outbuildings apart from the office and attic which we will use as a store whilst away. Garden, swings, poly tunnel (it's nice to sit in even if you don't grow anything during your stay). Freeview TV, DVD and WiFi. There is a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, and stair gates can be fitted, just let me know.

Interaction with Guests

You will be welcomed whether arriving by car or plane and full information and a contact number provided. We may not be at the property during your stay but will be available to contact. We'd encourage you to share your experiences on social media during your stay and after you go, and we provide wifi in the house for your convenience.

The Neighborhood

The Gaeltacht or Irish-speaking culture flourishes here, with regular traditional music sessions in local bars, and live music entertainment at weekends. Nearby Meenaleck, Crolly, is the home to Clannad and Enya's father Leo Brennan, and the pub, Tabhairne Leo, there holds regular music sessions. Further on down the coast, The Viking House is Daniel O'Donnell's former home and centre for visitors

Getting Around

Buses are surprisingly good in this area although remote, with daily services to Derry, Dublin, Belfast, and Galway departing from the town. There is a card with all this info on and local taxi services. There are newly designated cycle paths surrounding the townland of Dunmore. A car is a must for longer trips out but you could stay all week and not use it. Carrickfinn airport operates Dublin and Glasgow services and transport to and fro the airport can be arranged if you wish to arrive that way.

Other Things to Note

The heating in the house is an eco-friendly solid fuel and solar system which can take a little getting used to at first but will keep you roasting warm winter and summer. There is an electric shower downstairs for convenience (updated since the pictures!) and full instructions are left together with a well-stocked fuel shed. During the summer months a little fire in the evenings will be all you need, as the solar panels will heat up the water before you even wake up.
