Sea ViewsFree Wi-FiTraditional PropertyOpen FireCot & Highchair

The Gate Lodge is located next to the golf course on the outskirts of Greencastle in North Inishowen. This tastefully renovated property along the Wild Atlantic Way, is within walking distance of local beaches and is close to the lighthouse at nearby Shroove Blue Flag beach. With 3 bedrooms to accommodate up to 6 people and free wifi, the Gate Lodge is a perfect touring base for Inishowen and has easy access to the Giant's Causeway and the North Coast via the Lough Foyle ferry, which crosses from Greencastle to Magilligan during the summer months.

An Ideal Holiday Base for the Inshowen Peninsula

Greencastle itself is a small coastal town located in the eastern side of the scenic Inishowen Peninsula in Co Donegal. It is situated close to the narrow mouth of Lough Foyle and is just 1km by ferry from Magilligan Point in Co Derry. It also lies along the route of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

Greencastle Fishing Port

The village has a beautiful setting overlooking Lough Foyle towards the dramatic Benevenagh Mountain.  It originally developed as a fishing port but in recent times has become a popular family tourist destination.  

This is due to a number of factors including its central location on the Inishowen Peninsula, its easy access to the dramatic northern coastlines of Derry and Antrim and its proximity to the historic walled City of Derry.  It is also due to a number of more local factors including Greencastles rich maritime heritage, its friendly pubs, its beautiful 18 hole golf course and the wonderful Shroove beach overlooked by the dramatic Stroove Lighthouse.

What they say

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.
