Sleepy Hollow???


I am going to be camping with my family soon at the town of Sleepy Hollow, mainly to surf. I hear the village may be near Dungloe, so what I am wondering is, is there actually anything to the Sleepy Hollow, or will most of our trip be in Dungloe??

Please Reply ASAP

The Village that you call it is basically 500 metres long and consists of two pubs, one being Leo,s (home of Clannad and Enya) and across the road is Tessies,there is Nothing else here, Dungloe would be the nearest big town, and nearby you have Rannafast, Loughanure, Crolly and Annagry, or you can venture over towards Gweedore (Derrybeg/Bunbeg) the nearest Surfing beach is Carrickfin, follow the signs for the Airport approx 4/5 miles through Annagry and at the road into the Airport continue along side the runway (Its a beach road) and you will eventually come to the award winning Blue flag beach. there is a supermarket in the Petrol station in Crolly, and also in Annagry and two or three in Dungloe.

Here is some info from the sleepy hollow site:


Hope you have a great time !!

There is no such town as sleepyhollow - the sleepyhollow campsite is in a village called Meenaleck, which is between Crolly and Annagry. True to the Donegal spirit you won't find any signs for Meenaleck but if you can find Leo's pub, just carry on down the road about 300 yards past it and you will see it on the right.

We stayed in the Sleepy hollow campsite , and would warn anyone away from this campsite/garden. There is meant to be a strict quiet policy from 11pm to 8am and this is not the case.This is a glorified front and back garden of a private house.There is no secure parking or camping. On the night we were there we were awoken at 3am and had stones , and other objects thrown at our tent. After an hour of screaming drunken young people running around causing much trouble to those sleeping, never once did the owner appear.We had to physically get out of the tent and chase people away. Even in the morning after all this there was no sign of the owners.We also had to tell fellow campers to be quiet at 1.30am ,sitting around drinking and talking loudly. We dont mind any one having a bit of fun but this is just too much for a campsite that states people to be quiet from 11pm to 8am...If you want a cheap unsecure place, and no sleep,this is the place for you.

couldnt disagree more with post 3, we stayed at Sleepy hollow in July this year and found it a great setting. The owners were always about, cleaning, cutting grass and talking to the campers. The site was clean and being small was very friendly. There was a great walk behind the site down to the river, and only a few hundred yards away was a lovely pub/restaurant called Leo's. We had no problems with noise or screaming drunken young people, and we will certainly be back.

Stayed in sleepy hollow and wouldn't do again...absolutely tortured with midges, and I mean millions of them...site has large midge machines to attract them but don't do the trick

Site is quaint and pretty...owners welcoming

Just a shame about the bugs
