DescriptionClontallagh House is a large 4 bedroom holiday home located along the spectacular "Atlantic Drive" just outside the village of Downings on the Rosguill Peninsula in north Donegal. There are views over the surrounding countryside, mountains and beyond to the waters of Mulroy Bay and the Fanad Peninsula. Relax in the sunroom and savour these views or watch the small craft make their way up the Bay. Just a 2 min. walk away is the famous "Singing Pub" where you can enjoy traditional music while mingling with the locals.
The nearby village of Downings has a range of small local shops along the main street. The harbour in the village is a working one with crab and salmon boats landing their catch daily. The long sandy beach is popular with water sport enthusiasts. Downings has a newly built modern leisure centre called Magherabeg Leisure Centre which is open to the public and features swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, and gym.
Glenveagh National Park
Here within a late 19th century setting in a rugged and remote mountain valley, Henry McIlhenny from Philadelphia created one of the most celebrated gardens in Ireland. Woodland gardens and pleasure grounds, an Italian terrace with antique sculpture and terracotta pots, are all skilfully interwoven against the wild and beautiful Donegal landscape.
Ards Forest Park
As well as being one of the most beautiful, Ards is certainly the most varied of Ireland's forest parks. Bays, rivers, loughs, beaches, salt marshes, valleys, viewing points, deer enclosures and historic monuments are woven together by a series of fascinating nature trails.
This spectacular drive begins in Downings village and it offers some of the most awe inspiring scenery in County Donegal.
Nearby activities and attractions include:
* Scuba Diving and sea fishing in Downings
* Golf at Rosapenna and Carrigart
* Pony trekking
Clontallagh House is ideally located to take full advantage of all this beautiful area has to offer and makes the ideal base for your family or golf group's holiday in northwest Donegal. Book early to avoid disappointment, especially for the peak summer months of July and August.
