There is also a wc and kitchen sink drainer...... perhaps for cleaning those mackerel you caught earlier! Upstairs the master bedroom has a magnificient shower ensuite, as well as views over the bay.

Inver Port is a small bay with it's own pier and beaches. You can walk along the sea road to the larger village of Inver to the Rising Tide Pub where the river Eany enters Inver Bay. Or launch your boat and sail or motor down to the pub at high tide, which has its own pier outside! Now that's called arriving in style! On the way you can purchase large sea trout from the local fishermen. On the main road there is a small supermarket called Inver Stores, and another small post office/coal and wood store called Cassidy's both within walking distance. Further west from Inver is St John's point which sticks out into the ocean with sandy beaches, lighthouse and a great restaurant at the Castle Murray Hotel.

Unlike many holiday home rentals in the West of Ireland, you are not isolated. Donegal town and all it's facilites are only a 10 minute drive away. Here you have Banks, Pubs, two large supermarkets, internet cafe, many restaurants and takeaways including Chinese, Indian and Italian. Whilst the thriving towns and cities of the Donegal area are a relatively new phenomenon, even with the recent downturn, they still remain essentially Irish, with great eateries and a wide range of shops. In essence, the Celtic Tiger never quite made it here and the area remains unspoiled. Donegal Town says it all .... natural hospitality, good food, and great craic all make for a holiday to be remembered when staying at Jib Luff in Inver Port.
A bountiful mixture of mist, myth and magic.
The ruined walls in front of the house are now preserved and are part of the only whale and basking-shark fishery in Donegal Bay which is unique. It was conducted by the inventor of the first swivel-gun harpoon, Thomas Nesbittt, who also built the first and only Irish whale-rendering plant at Port, Inver, Donegal Bay, where he undertook shore-based whaling at a time when other European whaling industries were based in the northern seas. Thomas Nesbitt, was born near Inver in 1730 and is buried in the graveyard of the ruined Church. This operation was probably a tryworks (the name given to the iron pots used for boiling the oil out of the blubber of whales), or at least a location where the activity of flensing or cutting-in (the process of removing blubber from the whale's carcass) was carried out.
There is a locally paid cleaning charge of 55 euros
