    “We had a wonderful holiday in this gorgeous family home.”

    Irene was always available and was incredibly helpful in suggesting places to eat/ places to go etc.

    Irene was always available and was incredibly helpful in suggesting places to eat/ places to go etc. The house was immaculately clean and a new suite of furniture arrived during our stay. Would love to go back with our grandchildren The beach is a short walk away, not as close as I thought from the pics on the website but the views from the house are breathtaking.

The property

Dungloe 4.9 miles.

Situated in a beautiful spot to overlook the simply stunning scenery of the Atlantic Ocean is this unique and inviting house, Termon near to the town of Dungloe.

The house has unique designs and quirky features, suited to a group looking for a peaceful and idyllic stop in Ireland.

Beginning with the open-plan living space which will be your social hub, you can find high-quality appliances in the kitchen area where delicious meals can be whipped up while others lounge on the sofas a step down below in the sitting area.

Serve up on the dining table with a glorious backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean through the large tall windows, you won't have had a dining experience like it.

A large Smart TV is perched on the wall with a selection of DVDs to choose from, so why not come together for a movie night before you hit the hay.

The ground-floor continues to impress with the addition of two bedrooms, the king-size benefiting from the same beautiful views so you can wake up to the ocean, while a family room with a double and two singles is a great spot for a family with little ones.

Feel refreshed after a hot shower in the stylish ground-floor wet room before beginning your day of adventure of the Irish coast.

On those rainy days or quiet evenings, enjoy the hidden hideout of the property, head up the open-tread staircase passing a beautiful feature stained glass window, and come to the first-floor sitting room where a large and inviting plush sofa is there for you to sink into and enjoy the heat from the electric fire.

On warmer days, sit out on the balcony which comes off this room and take in the rays while the views continue to amaze.

Completing the property is the master bedroom, where a free-standing feature bath sits before the windows, creating an air of luxury, opposite the king-size bed, you are sure to love winding down your evening with a warm soak in the tub.

When you are wanting to venture out and explore the area, put on your walking boots and simply step outside, starting with a walk down to Maghery Beach to enjoy the sands and the crisp clear waters, and interesting heritage sights locally and the Termon Stone Circle.

Head into Dungloe to enjoy a spot of lunch in one of the several restaurants and pubs available, before exploring further by hiring some bikes, or take a lesson from the Wild Atlantic Surf School at Dooey Beach.

For diving enthusiasts, take a trip to Burtonport and Arranmore where there are amazing dive sites and ship wrecks to explore.

There is also the local fresh oyster farm where they do tours where tourists can see the whole life cycle of the oyster from seed to jumbo size spectacular views of the bay and they get to open and taste the wild fresh Atlantic oyster at the end of the tour.

Nearby there are bike rentals, guided walks, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkelling and Maghery Coastal Adventures, there is a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 15 minute walk to the nearest pub..

About the location


Arranmore Island 7.5 miles; Letterkenny 32 miles.

Up until 1762, entry into the town of Dungloe in Donegal was only possible via the stepping stones dotted over the river. Thankfully, now visitors from all over the world can take the much easier route over Donegal Bridge and enjoy this charming town in County Donegal with ease. 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. Wonderful wildlife can be found in the bogs and reed beds, while golfers will love the variety of golf courses found in the surrounding area. With hills and mountains to explore, the dramatic coastline to enjoy and so much to see and do, this is sure to make the perfect base for your Donegal holiday.
