The property

A superb detached farmhouse, situated on the outskirts of the district of Fahan, overlooking the beautiful Lough Swilly, made famous as the place where John Newton penned Amazing Grace, in County Donegal. With stunning sea views and lovingly-decorated throughout, this cottage is the perfect base for a family or a group of friends who are looking to explore all the north west of Ireland has to offer. There are two cosy bedrooms on the first floor, whilst the ground floor offers a well-equipped kitchen with a dining area, the ideal social space for bringing everyone in the party together to prepare and enjoy a hearty meal. After dinner, you can retire to the sitting room, which boasts comfortable furniture and a warming solid fuel stove, perfect for chilling out after an action-packed day of adventure. On a summer’s day when the sun is high in the sky, head outside to the front yard and relax with a glass of something cool in hand as you admire the tranquil views of the lush green fields and rolling hills. Hop in the car and drive a short distance to the town of Fahan, where you can pick up bacon and eggs for a delicious breakfast, or find a pub and swapping stories with the locals. Venture a little further afield and pay a visit to Buncrana, where you can hone your swing at the local golf course. Alternatively, enjoy a leisurely walk along the sandy beach, stretching for miles when the tide permits, or discover the abundance of characterful seaside towns and tiny villages, all boasting breathtaking views, dotted along the Inishowen Peninsula. With pastoral views to drink up and an excellent location, this delightful property is perfect for your adventure in the north west of Ireland.
