The Rockhouse - Dungloe


Free Wi-FiPets AllowedTraditional PropertyOpen Fire

A quiet and peaceful location to relax and unwind by a warm fire and no TV - the traditional cottage is set in generous landscaped grounds including a small wood and stream. An ideal base from which to explore the Wild Atlantic Way and all the scenery of The Rosses and Donegal.

There are several beaches a few minutes drive away and numerous walks around the surrounding area. The nearest town Dungloe (An Clochan Liath) is a 6km drive with bars, restaurants and shops.

Traditionally Stone Built

The cottage is traditionally stone-built and heated by an air-source heat pump as well as the wood-burning fire (logs are included). In addition, there is a heat-recovery system to vent the air around all the rooms to maintain guests comfort. No TV but there is WIFI throughout, as well as board games for all ages. Visitors and pets are free to explore the grounds around the cottage.

A car is advisable to get around but there are local paths and roads which can be navigated on foot - the locals are also very friendly!!! Free and ample parking on-site for 2 cars.

West Donegal

All around the cottage you will find rugged peninsulas, clean beaches and towering mountains. The visitor will find numerous peaceful roads, country lanes and mountain tracks to walk. West Donegal is famous for its natural beauty - from the majesty of Glenveagh National Park  to the wild Atlantic views along the Rosses and Gweedore coastline. Errigal and the Derryveagh Mountains are within 1 hours drive. The Dunlewey Lakeside Centre is a similar distance by car and boasts an exciting historical display of local crafts, trips on the lake, play facilities for children and pony trekking.

The visitor can  sample the delights of local fishing in many surrounding lakes and rivers. The holiday home is central to both Bunbeg and Burtonport harbours where several charter boats and ferries operate. These can be used for sea angling, sight seeing or visiting the local islands including Gola and Aranmore
