    “Amazing house for a short family vacation!”

    It felt like home, and the host made sure everything is in place for our comfort. Very close distance to shops, although for bigger ones Letterkenny is the closest town. The house is very warm, no need for extra blankets. The few remarks I would have that the double bed in the small room is too small for 2 people’s comfortable sleep and that the duvets were heavy and too warm. Also, the internet is quite weak, even near the source. For 2 people working at the same time it was a bit of a ...

    It felt like home, and the host made sure everything is in place for our comfort. Very close distance to shops, although for bigger ones Letterkenny is the closest town. The house is very warm, no need for extra blankets. The few remarks I would have that the double bed in the small room is too small for 2 people’s comfortable sleep and that the duvets were heavy and too warm. Also, the internet is quite weak, even near the source. For 2 people working at the same time it was a bit of a struggle. But we had very good mobile coverage which helped. And the last remark is that the host asked to put out the bin for collection on the scheduled time - this was a bit of surprise for us since we haven’t had a similar situation. We were also asked to put our towels to wash before leaving - again, nothing similar happened to us before. Maybe this is a normal practice somewhere, but it wasn’t mentioned in the ad. Other than above mentioned, we enjoined our stay!

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.
