    “A beautiful modern house overlooking the Wild Atlantic Ocean at Purteen harbour.”

    Lots of space, very comfortable with modern appliances. It is a lovely island, so wild and beautiful. Lots to see and a great walking area. Say hello to the very friendly, and nosey, donkeys in the field next door. They come for their carrots and apples! Thank you Claire for your great communication and Anthony for your help during our stay.
