The District:

Donegal is located in the north west of Ireland and Gort na Cuile is in the extreme north. The county boasts a raw natural beauty with a picturesque coastline. It has blanket bogs, mountains, cliffs, lakes and miles of golden beaches. There are many historical attractions dating back into the mists of time. The county also has a beautiful National Park and Malin Head is only about one hour's drive from Derry which was nominated as "The UK City of Culture 2013" The city was also host to last year's Fleadh Cheoil (Festival of Irish Music).  Both events were highly successful.  

 

Donegal is brimming with things to see and do. It's a haven for outdoor activities such as golf, fishing, hiking,cycling, horse riding, scuba diving and surfing. Do take a drive around the "Inishowen 100" which follows the periphery of the Inishowen coastline for most of the way.  Golf Odyssey, the golf travel experts, have now named local Ballyliffin golf course "the best international 36 hole complex outside of the US"  

Gort na Cuile is a modern 3 bedroom holiday home with a truly breathtaking location overlooking White Strand near Malin Head - Ireland's most northerly point

Why Gort na Cuile? 

Nestling cosily in a sheltered corner of the coast, this elevated southern facing site presents a panoramic view of dramatic scenery with stunning and ever changing views of the sea. There is easy access to the adjoining seashore leading on to an expansive shingle beach where the waves continually roll in over pebbles and shells leaving behind rock pools and food for the many varied flocks of birdlife that frequent the area.  

There is a plentiful supply of crab and lobster in the locality with sea fishing; edible seafood such as carrigeen moss and dulce are in good supply and there for the taking. Most of all, one can enjoy the peace and quiet, the sunlight rippling on the water, the stunningly beautiful sunsets and sometimes the aurora borealis while the caves at Portronan are well worth exploring for their natural art. The above are just some of the reasons to holiday in Gort na Cuile

In the other direction, a wild and stunning walk leads on along the high cliffs, past Hells Hole and the Devils Bridge. Crocalough mountain offers spectacular views of Malin Head district and well beyond.

What they say

Can I also take this opportunity to say how helpful and user friendly your website is - it is certainly a plus for Donegal. I became aware of it through a friend who has booked a house in Ballyliffin for a number of us attending a wedding in the area in the summer.
