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.

About the location


Buncrana 3 miles.

Fahan, named after its patron saint, Saint Mura (whose famous cross slab is in the village graveyard) is a small willage on the Inishowen Peninsula, in County Donegal, located about 5 miles from Buncrana on the Wild Atlantic Way. Renowned for its sandy beaches, history, heritage and unspoilt scenery, it is one of Ireland’s most beautiful coastal destinations. The fantastic beaches scattered along the coastline are big attractions for families and they also cater for watersports enthusiasts with many water-based sports on offer. If you fancy exploring further afield, make the trip to the Doagh Visitor Centre where you can dive into traditional living and explore some of Ireland’s earliest dwellings, including sod and turf houses, and even sample some of the local food and herbal remedies from ancient times! Alternatively, travel to Glenveagh National Park where you'll be met with 16,000 acres of stunning scenery, great walking opportunities and a castle to visit or make a trip to Malin Head which is Ireland's most northerly point. For the shopping enthusiast the city of Londonderry has a rich passion for the Arts and is renowned for its vibrant, artistic heritage. There are many shops, art studios and craft workshops where you can pick up a piece of local design and craftsmanship as a reminder of your Irish holiday.
