What they say

Beach House in Dunfanaghy is heaven on sandy shore, village edge, and golf’s doorstep. The Harry Vardon links course  is visible from the living-room. Horses and riders plash by every day on the beach. People in pubs and shops offer friendly welcome. The spacious, comfortable house soon sets up as a home.  A mountainous national park, the wild coast of Donnegal, and Northern Ireland cities are all within driving distance. Our stay was perfect.
