    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    7 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Spend your days golfing, walking in the hills, boating to nearby islands or just sitting by the fire enjoying the spectacular views. The house is on a cliff over looking a small beach with plenty of choices of all sort of sandy beaches all around the house and island.

    The setting is Cruit Island, where your neighbours are a clutch of thatched-roof cottages, a pony and a golf course. The nearest village is Dungloe, a market town in Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) County Donegal, northwest Ireland. This area has been inhabited for about 4,000 years.

    Although the location is rustic, the house has all modern comforts. Donegal House is a 15-minute drive from Donegal Airport, with flights to and from Dublin five days per week, and six flights to Glasgow, Scotland per week.

What a wonderful home everything you could possibly need it has, and more. We had a group of 9 people . The views are amazing actually breath taking the golf is within walking distance so is the beach. If and when I return no matter if it is just my husband and I we will stay right there. It is close to the airport and you can pick up your rental car at the same time. Beautiful little town of Burtonport is close by as our great little restaurants. Everyone in the group were very impressed that I had found this gem. I hope everyone else will as well. more
