    “Beautiful house and STUNNING views.”

    Only downside, and it is probably a smallish one but inconvenient especially when you are on holidays, owners do not provide a house information pack on how things work within the home. Meaning we had to contact Sinead on a few occasions on how something worked. Easily rectified and hopefully it will be soon. Cleanliness of house excellent, mattresses firm. Sufficient pots and pans, cutlery etc. Couple of tea towels, and bin cupboard for separating waste, only no identification on what goes ...

Overall, we had a fabulous time and hope to return at some stage if we can.

About the location

GORTAHORK, COUNTY DONEGAL

Glenveagh National Park 11.5 miles; Dungloe 18 miles; Letterkenny 27 miles.

The village of Gortahork is situated on the north western tip of the County Donegal coast, and is an increasingly popular location for surfing and walking. There are several beautiful beaches around the area, and the village is home to the Samhain International Poetry Festival each year. From Gortahork, Glenveagh National Park is easily accessible for a great day out, and with 16,000 acres, it is a walker's paradise. The renowned artist Derek Hill bequeathed his house and gallery near Glenveagh along with his art collection to the nation in 1980, attached is Glebe Gallery and tea rooms which hosts many exhibitions. For a day's relaxation head to nearby Bunbeag which has a swimming pool and a spa area or An Chuirt Hotel which lies at the foot of the Errigal Mountain and has its own health club and spa. Island-hopping is fun for all the family, and from Gortahork, you can charter a boat and visit Arranmore, Cruit Island and Owey Island. Cruit Island is joined to the mainland by a bridge, so is easily reached by car, but chartering a boat is much more exciting! Nearby, the town of Dungloe plays host to the annual ‘Mary From Dungloe’ festival, and is renowned for its fantastic fishing. This is a great location, and an ideal base for touring the area.
