“"Relaxing stay at Shiphaven View"”
Reviewed July 28, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our family have just returned from a lovely relaxing 2 week break at this house - very clean, well presented and family friendly. Four bedrooms (3 doubles, 1 single) so plenty of room. Nice open plan arrangement between kitchen and living area with a dining area in the conservatory. Lovely wood burning stove which we were glad of on the cooler evenings. The views of Sheephaven Bay were stunning - glorious sunsets every night whatever the weather. Wifi excellent - important aspect of the holiday where our 2 boys were concerned.
Location handy to the local shops - about 5 mins drive to village of Carrigart with good Centra store. Also another store about 2 mins drive away (Mickey Joe's country store with good meat counter). Downings is only about 10 mins drive away/
Dunfanaghy is about 20 mins. Highly recommend a visit to Ards forest park - unbelievable beaches with lovely walks through the park plus good coffee at the little cafe located beside the car park. Plenty of picnic benches dotted around also.
This was a good base for us to tour around other parts of Donegal. We ventured down to Slieve League on a day trip (2 hours drive but definitely worth it). Also took a run up to Fanad lighthouse which was worth a look.
Michael the owner was very hospitable with plenty of recommendations prior to our arrival.

“Excellent house, great location, will be back!”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a great house, clean, comfortable and well-presented. It is in a great location with plenty to see and do within a short travelling distance. Michael, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful, suggesting places to go, things to do, restaurants. He even emailed me a couple of weeks before we were going to say that we were going at a really busy time of year and that we should book any restaurants before we went! Michael couldn't have been more helpful.

“Great house, amazing views and locals are so friendly!”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This place is just stunning! Rugged coastal views and sandy beach in Downings Bay.
If you want a week relaxing or a week taking stunning, stunning landscape images round Atlantic Drive or simply messing about on the beach and back to a comfortable and welcoming house then this is the place for you!
