Radharc na Locha is a beautifully restored 2 storey Irish farmhouse with an idyllic setting overlooking Shannagh Lake near the Atlantic shoreline of the Fanad Peninsula in North Donegal. The holiday home lies along the route of Irelands Wild Atlantic Way and is just 5km from one of its 'Signature Points' - Fanad Head Lighthouse.

Tastefully Restored Irish Farmhouse with Lake Views

The holiday home has 3 spacious first floor bedrooms to sleep 6 comfortably. The bright master bedroom has a stylish ensuite facility. The double bedroom to the back of the house has views of Shannagh Lake and the Atlantic Ocean. A bedroom to the front  of the house has a single bed that can be converted to a double bed with a pull-out mattress. There is also a tastefully decorated bathroom on the first floor. 

On the ground floor there is large modern kitchen with the kitchen sink window enjoying lovely lake views There is a small dining table in the kitchen and a more traditional dining room opening out from the kitchen. The living room enjoys lake views and is furnished and decorated in an Irish farmhouse style. There is a lawn to one side of the house with paving to the front back and other side. The paved area to the back is the perfect spot to sit back and enjoy the lake views.

Visitors to the holiday home have rights to fish on Shannagh Lake which has both natural and stocked brown trout.  Fishing is from the shore only - no boats are allowed on the lake. Other fishing lakes nearby include Kinny Lake and Kindrum Lake.  Sea fishing is also popular along the northern coastline of the Fanad Peninsula.

The Beautiful Fanad Peninsula

Although  situated in a peaceful rural location, the holiday home is within easy driving distance of some major tourist amenities. The ISA Approved Adventure One Surf School is based at the fabulous Ballyhiernan Strand which is just 3km away. A pitch and putt course is just across the road from the beach. The top class links golf course and blue flag beach at Portsalon are just over 7km away. The Harry Blaney Bridge over Mulroy Bay means the two holiday resorts of Carrigart and Downings are a 20 minute drive . Near Downings is the fabulous Rosapenna Golf Resort.

And despite its rural location the holiday home has a post office and a shop right on its doorstep - and not just any shop. McAteers of Shannagh is a real throw back in time. It is a shop where literally anything from a needle to an anchor can be bought.

There are a number of worthwhile day trips that can be enjoyed from the holiday home. These include the magnificent Glenveagh National Park and the historic Walled City of Derry. Letterkenny - Donegals main shopping town -  is 40 miniutes drive away and features a multi-screen cinema, theatre, county library and museum, Arena 7 Adventure Complex, karting cente and the modern Aura leisure centre.

What they say

This site is a dream to use; it has everything in place in a way that is easy to find. All the information I want is easily accessible and having numerous photos really gives you a good idea of the property. Looked at other sites and after a couple of minutes gave up. Your site has been very well thought through.
