Doherty Farm Holiday Homes are situated on Island Roy which is situated between the villages of Downings and Carrigart in County Donegal. We are only minutes from Rosapenna 18 hole golf course and the new Sandy Hills Golf Course.

The island is joined to the mainland via a causeway and is within walking distance of the villages of Carrigart and Downings each 2.5kilometres from the houses. Our island is part of hidden Ulster and better still hidden Ireland. We are recorded very little on most of the maps for the Rosguill area and are on very few maps for Donegal.

Island Roy

Island Roy the name that the island is known today as has had many different names recorded in Donegal History all relating to the island. They are as follows: Edenbray, Elendebray, Illandeory, Island Roy, Island Wray, and as is is officially registered with the Irish Ordinance Survey Office, Oileán an bhráighe, which when translated is Prisoner's Island which according to local history links the Island with Doe Castle and the Clan Mac Sweeney.

We are nested quietly in the beautiful Mulroy Bay and protected by Gainne Mhor the Fanad Mountains , Figart Hill, with Muckish Mountain in the distance. We have one lake on the Island called Loch Moss, but sadly no fish, although we do have wild duck nesting and hatching their broods there. Our shores are noted for Whelks, Scallop and Urchin.

Two causeways link our Island to the mainland, one to Carrickaholan Isle and the other from Carrickaholan to Island Roy. The causeways were built between the years of 1927 and 1929.
