Celebrating 30 years in Self Catering Business

This year we are celebrating 30 years in the self catering business in north Donegal. We look forward to serving you - both returning guests and those new to the area

Horn Head

Horn Head is perhaps the most dramatic of Donegal's Peninsulas with a stunning scenic drive and numerous scenic walks.  The entire peninsula  has been designated as an Irish Natural Heritage Area and a Refuge for Fauna (specifically sea birds)


The holiday home enjoys commanding views of Dunfanaghy village. This holiday village  and the surrounding area is very popular with visitors who return each year to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of this wonderful part of Donegal. The village is surrounded by glorious coastal and mountain scenery. Port-na-Blagh, 3 miles away, is also a family holiday centre and nearby Marble Hill overlooks a safe long strand.

Dunfanaghy now has a well established Festival programme which runs throughout the year and includes a Seafood Festival, a Jazz and Blues Festival and a Halloween Madness Festival.

The holiday home is centrally located on the North Donegal coastline. Mountain climbing and hill walking are popular in this spectacular landscape with Muckish, Errigal and the Derryveagh mountains all easily reachable.  There are also a number of beautiful forest walks in the region - including numerous walking trails in the wonderful Ards Forest Park.
