DescriptionThis fabulous house sleeps up to eight people and is set in a small exclusive development in Ballyliffin, one of Donegal’s premier holiday locations. The close proximity to the golden Pollan Strand makes this house an ideal spot for beach lovers. There is plenty to do, including visits to the Isle of Doagh, horse riding, angling and many restaurants to enjoy. Shop, pub and restaurant are within easy walking distance.
Ballyliffin is popular with all age groups and there is plenty to do for children and adults (ranging from horse-riding to days out on the beach). The Donegal area is also ideal for fishing. Overall this is a fantastic place to spend some time to explore and enjoy the natural beauty that is the west coast of Ireland. Everybody should experience this at least once in their life. Once you go you will yearn to return next year - chance to relax and unwind from the daily grind.
There are four hotels in the village; each with its own restaurant and bars. Not forgetting the golf club, which also has its own bar and the popular "Lynx" Restaurant. If you want more traditional pubs, then a short drive of about 3km will get you to Clonmany. At Malin Head there is good food available at the Seaview Tavern while a 30 min drive southwards brings you to Buncrana, Inishowen's main town, with its shops, restaurants and Leisure Centre.
Ballyliffin Golf Course
The scenic beauty of the surrounding area is undoubtedly one of the reasons why people choose the area. The other reason is of course the famous Ballyliffin Golf Course - with its two links, a new clubhouse, and its unique situation on the Isle of Doagh, surrounded by the hills, the sea, and Trawbreaga Bay.
Isle of Doagh
The Isle of Doagh is the small peninsula separating Trawbreaga Bay from the Atlantic. It is here where the golf course is situated, but also The Famine Village; a unique outdoor museum exhibiting displays of structures, models and tableaux depicting Ireland as it was in the 19th century, particularly during the great famine, when so many died or emigrated. The centre is well worth a visit, and is especially appealing to children and the young at heart, when it transforms into "Santa's Lapland" in Nov-Dec. - Early booking for this event is essential to avoid.disappointment.
