Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen FireCot & Highchair

Golfers Rest is a lovely 3 bedroom holiday home with a wonderful location on the shores of Donegal Bay on the outskirts of Donegal Town.  Situated on the shore side of the Old Golf Course Road the holiday home enjoys sweeping panoramic views over Donegal Bay.   With views over the water to the wooded countryside beyond it may be hard to believe that this lovely holiday home is within walking distance of the heart of historic Donegal Town.


The holiday home has been designed to make maximum use of its idyllic setting.  The living room, dining area, sun room and two of the three bedrooms enjoy superb sea views.  The fenced front lawn slopes down towards the waters edge 50 metres away.

Donegal Town

Donegal Town itself is of great historical interest and has numerous tourist attractions. Donegal Castle stands beside The Diamond, overlooking the River Eske. Guided historical tours of Donegal Town take place on a daily basis during the summer and the Waterbus takes you around Donegal Bay -  and will provide you with a view of the holiday home from the sea. The ruins of Donegal Abbey, situated on the bay, are open to the public.


Also close to the holiday home is the quaint Donegal Craft Village. The workshops in this village are leased to professional artists and crafts people. All the unique products you will see in the village are handmade by these talented artists.  Located on the Diamond is the renowned Magee of Donegal. Opened in 1866 this historic shop has a great selection of tweeds for both men and women and beautiful knitwear and a large range of casual wear. Donegal Town also has several first class hotels and restaurants. There is entertainment most nights in the local pubs with music to suit all tastes.

 

The holiday home is 8km from the beautiful Lough Eske. Translated from Irish Lough Eske means "Lake of the Fish". Unsurprisingly then, the lake and its tributaries are popular for fishing, especially for spring salmon, sea trout and  alpine char, with the season running from 1 March to 31September. Lough Eske is surrounded to the north, east and west by the Bluestack Mountains, which occupy most of central and eastern Donegal. The Bluestack Way is a Waymarked Way designed to traverse the Bluestacks using existing roadways, paths and tracks to lead the walkers through the mountains in a safe and sustainable manner.

What they say

 

 Dear Clare

We had a very enjoyable stay in your holiday cottage despite the terrible weather. I knew it wasn’t the perfect time of the year to go, but it was my husband’s birthday and I wanted to give him a nice surprise. The house is very comfortable and very welcoming. We fell like we were at home from the beginning. We greatly enjoyed the fantastic views. The house was also immaculate clean and it was warm when we arrived, which I thought was a very nice detail from Julia.Due to the climate we didn’t get to visit as many places as we would have liked. But we visited the town and some picturesque areas around and we followed some of your recommendations.I would definitely recommend the place to friends and family and I hope I’ll have the chance to visit again on a more suitable time of the year, although I keep in mind that this is Ireland and the weather is quite unpredictable. Many thanks for taking interest in our feedback and for letting us enjoy your wonderful home.

 PS- We also enjoyed the wine, it was a very nice touch. Thank you.
