Resting alongside the picture-perfect Mulroy bay and boasting stunning views and a quintessentially Irish feel throughout the grounds are the Davey Johns Forge Cabins. Each cabin is decorated with chic and contemporary finishings, with hints of Donegal’s famous Mcnutt tweed running throughout the spaces adding to the charm of the dwellings. The cabins offer off-road parking and a delightful decked area, as well as all the home comforts one could need for a relaxing, self-catered holiday away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Just a short drive away from the site are magnificent blue flag beaches, championship golf courses and popular attractions such as the magnificent Glenveagh National Park, which is a haven for avid walkers and cyclists. From here you can also find Glenveagh Castle a 19th century castellated mansion, encompassed by beautiful gardens and courtyards. A fun-filled day out can be enjoyed at the nearby Tropical World, a delightful zoo with a fascinating array of animals, from creepy crawlies to primates and many in between. For a spot of history, the Donegal County Museum and Newmills Corn & Flax Mill are both reachable by car and present an insight into the county's rich past.
