Seodin - Dunlewey


Open FireLake Views

Seodin is a luxury holiday rental with a truly breathtaking location near the village of Dunlewey in County Donegal. The cottage nestles between the foothills of the majestic Mount Errigal and the shores of Dunlewey Lake and it overlooks both the lake and the hauntingly beautiful Poisoned Glen.

The holiday home has been carefully designed to make maximum use of natural sunlight - and to enable the visitor to enjoy the stunning vistas outside. All 5 bedrooms together with the dining area and the living room enjoy breathtaking views of either glen, lake or mountain. A large raised decking area is an ideal place to enjoy this stunning setting.

Luxury Accommodation

The holiday home is beautifully furnished and decorated. Paintings by local artists adorn the walls and elegant staircase handrails are by the renowned craftsman Jonathan Ball. There is top class accommodation for 10 people in 5 spacious double bedrooms – with the possibility of an extra 2 being accommodated in a double sofa bed. There is underfloor geothermal heating with constant hot water and marble tiled floors throughout the cottage.

The holiday home is on a 1.5 acre site that slopes down to the shores of Dunlewey Lake – the fencing is designed to keep the Glenveagh Estate deer from enjoying the landscaped grounds! A nice feature of the garden is the patio area with sculpted granite furniture.

Dunlewey

Dunlewey is a true hidden gem of Donegal tourism. This small Gaeltacht village has three iconic landmarks on its doorstep – Mount Errigal, The Poisoned Glen and Dunlewey Lake. It is also the venue for the popular Dunlewey Centre (Ionad Cois Locha). Facilities at this centre include restaurant, tea-room, craft shop, horse riding, adventure play areas, a themed farmyard, pets and animals, storytelling, boat trips on Dunlewey Lake, guided tours and weaving demonstrations. Traditional music sessions are held regularly in July and August. The centre now boasts a purpose built concert and drama centre.

Glenveagh National Park

Dunlewey is the closest village to the magnificent Glenveagh National Park. This park has over 16,000 hectares (40,000 acres) of mountains, lakes, glens and woods, with a herd of red deer and the recently reintroduced Golden Eagle. A quaint castle is surrounded by one of the best gardens in Ireland, which contrasts sharply with the rugged surroundings. The Visitor Centre houses exhibitions and an audio-visual show.

The area around Dunlewey is wonderful walking terrain. Sli an Earagail - a Bealach na Gaeltachta Waymarked Way, - provides the most beautiful scenery and exhilarating walking imaginable. In addition to Mount Errigal there are numerous hill walking routes on the Derryveagh Mountains within Glenveagh National Park.

Within 20 km of the holiday home there are some excellent beaches including Bunbeg and the superb Blue Flag Beach at Carrrickfinn. There are scenic 9 hole golf courses in Gweedore, Falcarragh and on Cruit Island. Sea Angling Charter boats are located in Bunbeg and lake fishing is available at Loughanure. The entire Gweedore region is renowned for traditional music.

A cead mile failte awaits you in this superb modern holiday home in the heart of West Donegal

What they say

We had the most relaxing time in your beautiful home. We have rented many homes over the years all over Ireland and we have to say the views, the peacefulness of the area and the hill walking was superb.   

We will be in contact again in the hope we can rent later in the summer months if your home is available. PS: Margaret was a gem! Thank you and our very best regards...
