The Barn, 2 miles from Glenties , is a two storey self-catering studio with a double bedroom. It is very peaceful, and is nestled into a hillside, surrounded by trees. It is not far from the long sandy Narin beach and the Wild Atlantic Way. Short and long walks are nearby. Guests can sit in the garden and relax on sunny days, or warm themselves and relax by the wood stove when it is chilly.
Dogs are welcome if they are cat friendly. Doggie bags must be used. There will be a small extra charge. The barn is not suitable for toddlers or for people allergic to cats. Older children are welcome.
No smoking indoors, and smokers out-of-doors are requested to bin all their cigarette stubs.
It is appreciated if guests leave the barn as they found it as the owner has a painful old back injury which does not take kindly to housework.
I have spent over 20 years working in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, usually for charities, as a community health specialist. For the last 10 years I have been working here for the Health Service on behalf of asylum seekers and ethnic minorities. I am now retired. I love travelling and meeting people, and am interested in development issues, human rights, anthropology, history, and international affairs. Wildlife, animals and the environment are abiding interests. I fell in love with the beautiful and unspoilt Donegal and its people some time ago, and after finally settling here have been slowly restoring and renovating my traditional stone two storey house and barn
