Atlantic View is a 3 bedroom holiday home with a stunning coastal setting at the foot of Knockfola Mountain in north west Donegal.  The holiday home enjoys uninterrupted views towards Tory Island and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.  It is located on a half acre fenced in garden on a tranquil stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way between Derrybeg and Magheraroarty

Superb Ocean Views

Most of the rooms in the holiday home take advantage of the ocean views outside. The living room is comfortably furnished and has an open fireplace. The well equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar. The dining area enjoys sea and mountain views.  There are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom - 2 of the bedrooms are ensuite

The holiday home is on over half acre of lawned and fenced in garden with uninterrupted views of Tory Island and Inisbofin.  There is a large parking area around the property.  A picnic bench is located on an elevated area to the side of the house with stunning views of Knocfola behind and the ocean in front.

A Gaeltacht Region

The area around the holiday home abounds with stunning scenery, from the spectacular Bloody Foreland to the beautiful beaches at Bunbeg and Carrickfinn and from the majestic Mount Errigal  to the rugged offshore islands of Tory, Inishboffin and Gola. The nearby villages of Derrybeg and Bunbeg lie in the heart of the Irish-speaking Gweedore Gaeltacht. Staying at Atlantic View will enable the visitor to absorb the culture and heritage of this unique region where Irish is still the main everyday language. 

Local Activities / Attractions

  • Take a day trip to Tory Island. The ferry service to Tory Island is available from nearby Magheraroarty several times a day - weather permitting

What they say

Thanks Yvonne and Brian. We really enjoyed staying in your beautiful home. The views from the house and garden are stunning and our children loved watching the lights come on in the evening on Tory Island and seeing the lighthouse light up the sea. Your house is warm and comfortable and the children enjoyed the video library and the board games.  Thank you for the welcome pack, it was a lovely welcoming surprise and much appreciated.  We will definitely come again.
