Sea ViewsOpen FireCot & Highchair

Chalet 5 is a 3 bedroom detached house in the grounds of the 4 star Redcastle Hotel Spa & Golf Club. The house is located at the water's edge with fantastic panoramic views of Lough Foyle towards the cliffs at Binevenagh in north County Derry and rear views over Redcastle’s 9 hole parkland golf course. The Redcastle Hotel and Leisureland are only 100 metres away . You can sit and relax here in front of an open fire listening to the waves and watching the shipping traffic - from local fishing boats to ocean going cruise liners and large cargo ships sailing up the Lough Foyle towards the port of Derry. This is an ideal location to explore the Historic Walled City of Derry (the UK City of Culture 2013), which is only a short 15 minute drive away or tour one of the most enchanting and beautiful regions of Ireland - the Inishowen pennisula.  A little further along the coast are the seaside village of Moville (4 miles) and fishing village of Greencastle (7 miles).

Northern Ireland
The car ferry at Greencastle will make it easy for you to explore the northern coasts of Derry and Antrim - including the Giants Causeway, Carrickarede Rope Bridge and Bushmills Distillery. Derry (Londonderry) is only a 15 minute drive from Redcastle, it is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of Walled Cities in Europe. The Walls were built during the period 1613-1618 by the honorable, the Irish Society as defences for early seventeenth century settlers from England and Scotland. Few places in these islands can offer such a compelling and unique experience for the visitor as the Walled City of Derry - its setting on the steep hills overlooking the wide sweep of the River Foyle, its distinctive architecture and its famous walls all provide enormous appeal. A walk around the walls reveals a splendid city crammed full of history, heritage, interest and a vibrant cultural scene (www.youtube.com/watch?v=frT8Lp7mUpk). You will also find an array of excellent restaurants, lively pubs and great shops

Drives
Take the 100 mile drive around Inishowen often described as "Ireland in miniature". The "Inishowen 100" (Inis-Eoghain100) is a journey of roughly 100 miles around the perimeter of the Peninsula, taking in all the natural scenic beauty along the way. You will discover the most picturesque and dramatic coastal scenery, collections of ancient forts and monuments, traditional craft centres, and numerous charming hospitable villages, mountains and valleys, forest and rugged barren bogland; you will not fail to be impressed by much of what you see. Scenic highlights include the Gap of Mamore, and Malin Head - Ireland's most northerly point. On the western side of Inishowen, the ferry service crosses Lough Swilly between Buncrana and Rathmullen, provides easy access to the rugged, largely unspoilt beauty of West Donegal. - although this service only operates in the summer months.

Golf
Redcastle Golf Club is bordered on one side by the waters of Lough Foyle with panoramic views across the mountains of Derry and on the other by equally spectacular views up into the hills of Donegal. This challenging 9-hole course makes the best use of the hillside location afforded to it. From the first hole - a gentle uphill dogleg left - you will be tested at every turn. After your round you can relax in the Carlton Redcastle Hotel, where the bar serves food throughout the day. The internationally renowned championship links course at Ballyliffin is only a 20 minute drive away and other challenging golf courses on the Inishowen Peninsula can be found at Greencastle and Buncrana.

Shore walks
(Shore Path from Moville to Greencastle), Hill walking, Fishing and Sea Angling, Sailing, Surfing and Swimming, are just some of the activities available for the more energetic. The beautiful Glennevin Waterfall near Clonmany is worth a visit.

There is also a great variety of birdlife: cormorants skim the surface of the lough while cranes and oystercatchers are common sights. Seals regularly surface and are visable on a clear day on a still lough, often resting on the nearby rocks.

What they say

 A lovely few days.  The view inspired me to write a little poem;

"Magestically silent lies the mountains, under the quiet skies

The pilgrim clouds as lightly trace, their shifting shadows on its face

Still like the sphinx the mountains lie, contempious of the centuries"

Joe, Dublin
