    “I absolutely loved this house as it is so beautifully elevated with such wonderful views.”

    I could have gazed at the surroundings all day long, though there was something missing: an outside seat! This would have been the icing on the cake, there was a good-sized patio but man-handling the heavy wooden indoor chair outside to it was not an option for me. ...

    I could have gazed at the surroundings all day long, though there was something missing: an outside seat! This would have been the icing on the cake, there was a good-sized patio but man-handling the heavy wooden indoor chair outside to it was not an option for me. The bed on the top floor was the best I've slept in for many a long year, and all the plumbing of excellent quality too. So useful to have a self-contained porch for hanging coats and storing walking boots. I did manage to do a fair amount of walking, several days from the door, but had to accept the huge difference between the Irish Republic land-ownership being private and fenced-off as opposed to such a lot in the UK. Sometimes it's good to realise how blessed we are in the UK by the thousands of historic ancient rights of way as on the OS maps and the National Trust-owned coastal land to enable access by foot. I did a 10-mile walk along empty country lanes-but so hard on the feet! I did mange to walk in the nearby National Park, sadly rain swept in as I was out there, but actually the week's weather was mostly good. I certainly have fond memories of Co. Donegal and one day hope to return.

Dungloe is known locally as 'The Capital of The Rosses', the name given to this region of the county. The town, which has become recognised as a centre for traditional Irish music, has a selection of shops, bars and eating places, as well as events taking place throughout the year, including the annual 'Mary from Dungloe' festival. A fisherman's paradise, the area has over 130 lakes and rivers and is renowned for its fishing and great sea angling, with several charter boats available in nearby Burtonport, from where diving can also be enjoyed. There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Arranmore and Rutland Island.
