Suaimhneas is a lovely 4 bedroom holiday home set in private grounds in the townland of Meenbanad close to the harbour village of Burtonport in the Rosses area of West Donegal. The holiday home is also just a few kilometres from Dungloe Town and from Cruit Island with its many beaches and scenic golf course
The Rosses area itself is one of the most beautiful parts of County Donegal. It extends from the Gweebarra Bridge to the south as far as Crolly Bridge to the North. It offers an incomparable wealth of scenery, mountains, rivers, lakes and beaches. Visitors return to the Burtonport area year on year to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of this wonderful part of Donegal.
Another main reason why people come to the Burtonport area is its reputation as a great place for fishing. This is due in no small part to the work of the Rosses Angling Association. With over 130 lakes, the area is renowned for both lake and river fishing. It is also a good base for sea angling with several charter boats based at Burtonport Harbour and nearby Kincasslagh
Burtonport has an 8 day summer festival in July each year catering for all age group. Nearby Dungloe hosts a number of festivals and other organised events throughout the year catering for almost every taste. These include the internationally renowned Mary from Dungloe Festival which takes place each summer. During this 10-day event visitors to Dungloe are treated to a fantastic programme of music, song, dance and street entertainment. There is also a festival dedicated to the local writer Peadar O'Donnell each autumn.
There are a number of worthwhile day trips that can be enjoyed from the holiday home. These include nearby Aranmore Island, the Dunlewey Lakeside Centre, the magnificent Glenveagh National Park and Letterkenny - Donegals main shopping town that also has a multi-screen cinema, theatre, county library and museum and the modern Aura leisure centre. Historic Donegal Town and the famous sea cliffs at Slieve League are just an hours drive from the holiday home.

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.
