What they say

Wee Dans, A True Little Hidden Gem! My wife, Dog and I have travelled all over Ireland, we live in Belfast so we do quite a bit of the country, and we had thought we had seen all the beauty this country had to offer until we stumbled upon Wee Dans in Downings Donegal - we had the best 5 days of our lives here, we will never forgot it and plan to return ASAP. 20 mins Drive to Glenveagh National Park and Ards Forest Park, All the Local beaches are stunning and walking distance to one of the best Irish pubs we have been in, and we have been in a lot. Great hiking locally, Super fishing 5 mins from the house ( Pier or of the rocks close to the house ), scenery to die for, and a lovely cosy house to return to at the end of the day. Thank you to this site for pointing us in the right direction, many other where very outdated and a bigger thankyou to Bryan and his sister Pauline who made this trip a special one with Wee Dans and the tips they provided us with. Magic 5 days, the only bad thing was leaving - heartbreaking.
