Flanagans Farmhouse - Downings


Open FireCot & Highchair

Flanagan’s Farmhouse is a charming and historic two storey farmhouse which has been recently fully restored and decorated to an exceptionally high standard; this characteristic farmhouse is complimented with a bright and modern interior. The house is over 100 years old and was once a working farm with over 80 acres of land.

This luxury house is situated on its own private one acre site and is the perfect location for either a quiet family holiday or entertaining with friends. The house is finished to an exceptionally high standard; it is both comfortable and well equipped with all the essential amenities.

Idyllic Setting

The house is located on the idyllic Atlantic Drive and only 5 minutes (2 miles) from Downings Village in North West Donegal. The famous Atlantic Drive is a short but very dramatic road around the Peninsula. The drive is about 12km long so you can best appreciate it if you cycle or walk. The walk can be comfortably completed in half a day. The Croaghaturr Headland walk is accessed from a laneway to the rear of the house; with its breath-taking views of Sheephaven Bay, the Atlantic coast and off shore Islands.

For keen rally fans, the house is situated on the Atlantic Drive stage of the Donegal International Rally which can be clearly watched in safety from the front of the house.

A perfect setting for any holiday whether you enjoy outdoor pursuits and adventure or unwinding and relaxing. For a holiday experience where good food, great beaches and beautiful scenery are all close at hand, look no further than this luxury holiday home set right on the picturesque Atlantic Drive. There is no doubt you will enjoy your stay at Flanagan Farmhouse.

What they say

Rented this house during the Donegal Rally last year. Fantastic! The cars go right past the front of the house for the Atlantic Drive leg, we’d the best view in Downings – barbequed in the front garden (with just a few beers!!!). Great base for seeing all the stages in Donegal. Would highly recommend this house. Wife was well impressed with the cleanliness and facilities in the house. House really comfortable with everything you need. Will definitely be back again.
