An Doras Dearg - Bunbeg


Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen Fire

An Doras Dearg is a 5 bedroom holiday home located in the Knockastoller townland of Bunbeg in West Donegal. From its elevated site this beautiful self catering accommodation enjoys views towards the rugged Gweedore coastline .

The holiday home has 5 spacious bedrooms – 2 of which are ensuite with a third having an ensuite toilet. There is also a large bathroom with bath and separate shower. Downstairs there is a well equipped kitchen with adjacent dining area. The living room is tastefully furnished and decorated and  enjoys coastal views. The room opens out to a large sun room - also with coastal views. There are heather clad hills behind the house with the tip of Errigal Mountain visible from the kitchen sink window.

The Beautiful Gweedore Coastline

The holiday home is situated just 3 km inland from the rugged coastline in this beautiful part of Ireland – a coastline that is dotted with small harbours, secluded beaches, dramatic headlands and numerous off shore islands.  Two of the finest beaches in Donegal are in this region – Port Arthur Beach in Derrybeg and Magheraclogher Strand in Bunbeg.  Both beaches are a short drive from the holiday home. Indoor leisure facilites are available at An Chuirt Hotel overlooking the Clady River (6km)

The scenic 9 hole Gweedore Golf Club is 5 km from the front door. The holiday home is also just 3km from the quaint harbour in Bunbeg - reputedly the smallest harbour in Europe. This working harbour is a departure point for a ferry to both Tory Island and Gola Island. Gola Island is just off the coast and features deserted beaches and spectacular scenery. Tory Island is a day trip but the visitor will be rewarded with magnificent scenery- scenery that has beguiled generations of artists.

Gaeltacht Area with Vibrant Music Scene

The holiday home is located in the heart of the West Donegal Gaeltacht.  Along with the Irish language a healthy traditional Irish music scene has survived in Bunbeg and the wider Gweedore area. During the summer months there are music sessions in the local pubs in both Bunbeg and Derrybeg. Leo's Tavern in Meenaleck (6km) is the home of the world famous Clannad and Enya  and holds regular music sessions throughout the year. Scoil Gheimhridh Ghaoth Dobhair is an annual week long music festival attracting musicians from all over the world for lessons in the art of traditional Irish music. The festival takes place in venues throughout Gweedore over the new year period and features concerts from internationally renowned musicians.

The Dunlewey Centre and Glenveagh National Park

Situated between the foothills of Mount Errigal and  the shores of Dunlewey Lough is the wonderful Dunlewey Centre (Ionad Cois Locha). Facilities include a weaving museum, farm animals, play areas, climbing wall, go-karting, canoeing, boat trips, guided tours, souvenir / craft shop and restaurant. Traditional music concerts are held each Tuesday night throughout the summer in the large newly built concert venue. 

The holiday home is just 20 minutes drive away from Glenveagh National Park. Glenveagh is the jewel in the crown of Donegal tourism. This magnificent park contains 14,000 hectares of lakes, mountains, raised bogland and woodland. The golden eagle has been reintroduced into the park in recent years. Other birds that can be seen include grouse, ravens, redstarts, stonechats and wood warblers. The park has the largest herd of red deer in Ireland and also features foxes, badgers, hares and stoats. The 19th century Glenveagh Castle on the shores of Lough Veagh is open to the public throughout the tourist season.

An Doras Dearg is an ideal base for the walking enthusiast.  Slí an Earagail - a Bealach na Gaeltachta Waymarked Way - passes along the Bunbeg coastline. This is long distance walking route (approx 60kms) and encompasses mountain, riverside, seaside and forest habitats.  Most sections of Slí an Earagail are on track and minor roads. There are also numerous walking trails within the boundaries of Glenveagh National Park

Whether you come as a  family or in a small group - a Donegal fáilte (welcome) awaits you at An Doras Dearg

What they say

I travel a lot so I'm always looking for interesting places to stay - anything to avoid another carbon copy hotel - and this has got to be one of the best local travel sites I've seen. Plenty of detail, tons of photos, excellent location info and clear pricing - everything I need to make an informed call. Great job and I'll be recommending the site to anyone else I know who's travelling in Donegal.
