Back to property details

We all loved it so much, we used the toys, buckets spades boogie boards wind breaker and beach chairs....all great wee extras.  Loved the beach no other beach we visited was as nice. This is our 5th summer holiday in donegal and by far the best house.  We will definitely be booking next year. Thank you

Christmas 2019 - a poem written by the Holidays Hounds!

holiday hounds meet up again

this year we chose donegal

magnificant house and scenery 

we,re going to have a ball!

we’re here from London & hamburg

and the mot in county tyrone

when you’re with the holiday hounds

you’ll never feel alone

its one kilometre to the beach

now that did make me smile

they made me walk along with them

ill swear it was 3 mile!

santa came to scenic bunbeg

the chimney we hope was clean

what a lot of presents he brought

the most I’ve ever seen 

we seemed to eat most of the time

then we’d eat some more

if we keep this up much longer

we’llnot Fit through the door

im a pioneer you know

that suits me real fine

the rest of the company, oh dear!

drunk lots and lots of wine!

the turf fire licked up the chimney

with its traditional Irish smell

 better than any perfume

any shop could sell

they sent me out to climb a tree

i came back in a day and a half

they seemed to find it amusing 

you should have heard them laugh

We went sight seeing every day

travelling from shore to shore

such magnificent scenery 

sure who could ask for more

the diet starts tomorrow

thats what I tell my chums

 it I did forget to tell the 

tomorrow never comes!

Orla what a wonderful house 

we sure enjoyed the craic

if they don’t build a harder border 

some day we will come back

if you are visiting just like us

we’ll Say with one loud voice

you’re Going to have a brilliant time

you made a very wise choice!

I have stayed in this beautiful home twice now and booked again for this summer. It has everything you need, it is so comfortable and suits us as we have 3 children and they love the fact toys and beach things are left to use. The house layout is brilliant with lots of storage. A separate utility is great as you don't have the noise of the machines in the open plan living/kitchen area. The kids love the triple bunk room, it becomes their den as they have their own TV and video/dvd player with loads of the old classics that they haven't seen! It is a perfect location for us as we can walk to the beach....and what a beach absolutely gorgeous! And the views from the sun room are beautiful especially the sunsets! Highly recommend!
