Blackthorn Lodge - Falcarragh

Blackthorn Lodge is a recently refurbished 3 bedroom holiday home located in peaceful countryside in North West Donegal.  It is situated close to the coastline between the towns of Falcarragh and Dunfanaghy with Muckish Mountain providing an impressive backdrop. From the front door, it is a short drive to Cloughaneely Golf Club and Drumnatinny Beach - a Green Coast Award Beach

Falcarragh

The coastal town of Falcarragh is just 4km from the holiday home. Falcarragh (An Fál Carrach ) is a Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) market town that is well served with shops, cafes and pubs. It has a visitor centre based in a restored RIC Barrack  which features exhibitions, craft shop, coffee shop and museum.

Falcarragh is surrounded by narrow winding country roads, coastal paths and mountain tracks making it an ideal base for those who enjoy walking, cycling, and hill walking. The local beach is now a popular surfing destination.

Dunfanaghy

The seaside resort of Dunfanaghy is a scenic 8k drive from the holiday home. Dunfanaghy has a wonderful Blue Flag Beach and a fine 18 hole links golf course. There are several watersports centres based in the village as well as an equestrian centre. Dunfanaghy has numerous shops, pubs,  restaurants, craft shops and art galleries.

Just beyond Dunfanaghy, there are two smaller seaside resorts - Portnablagh and Marble Hill as well as the wonderful Ards Forest Park. To the north of Dunfanaghy is the small but dramatic Horn Head Peninsula.

Wild Atlantic Way

The holiday home is a tranquil base to explore the Wild Atlantic Way in North West Donegal. All along the coastline from the Rosguill Peninsula to the ruggedly beautiful Gweedore coastline, there are numerous headlands, rocky outcrops, sandy coves, offshore islands, small harbours and some of the finest beaches in Ireland. At Magheroarty pier there are ferry services to both Tory and Inishbofin Islands.

Day Trips

The magnificent Glenveagh National Park is just 18km away from the holiday cottage. This 16,000 hectare Park is home to wild deer and is well known for its rich collection of trees, flowers and shrubs and makes for a lovely family day out.
Situated between the foothills of Mount Errigal and the shores of Dunlewey Lough is the wonderful Dunlewey Centre (22km). Facilities here include a weaving museum, farm animals, play areas, climbing wall, go-karting, canoeing, boat trips, guided tours, souvenir/craft shop and restaurant.
