While the house is not modern, it provided a homey base from which to explore Donegal. The location is truly memorable. Ard A Mhaoire is located at the end of the Loughros Peninsula, with some of the most amazing views to be found. We will always remember staying at this gem.

This is a lovely house, clean, with good facilities. The views out of every window are breathtaking. 10 minutes walk to the beach, and there is a great walk round the headland - you need to wear sturdy shoes or preferably walking boots, for a bit boggy in places and a few fences to hop over - but well worth...

About the neighborhood
The Loughros Peninsula extends west from Ardara into the Atlantic Ocean at Loughros Point. It is a peaceful, unspoilt peninsula which has some of the most beautiful scenery in Donegal. There are magnificent views across Loughros Beg Bay towards the Slievetooey Mountains and the famous Asaranca waterfall which cascades down to the majestic Maghera Beach. A 10 minute Walk from the holiday home brings you to Dorlins beach - a nice bathing beach on the Loughros More Bay side of the Peninsula.

Ard a Mhaoire is a great base for outdoor pusuits.
