The chalet looks out onto the mile long beach, which slopes gently into Ballyhiernan Bay. Fanad Beach House is the ideal location for your family self catering holiday in Donegal.
Beaches and Surfing
Within walking distance of Fanad Beach House there are numerous secluded beaches, rocky inlets and coves - ideal playgrounds for children of all ages. And just 100m from the holiday home is the fabulous Ballyhiernan Strand. Ballyhiernan Strand is home to the Adventure One Surfing School. Adventure One is the leading ISA (Irish Surfing Association) approved school on the north coast of Donegal and operates right throughout the holiday season. Ballyhiernan beach is also ideal for swimming, walking, windsurfing and kite flying.
Sea Fishing is also popular in this part of the Fanad Peninsula. The holiday home is close to Ballyhoorisky Pier and to the remnants of an old pier. Fishing off the rocks close to the dramatic Fanad Lighthouse is well worthwhile. Trout angling is available at nearby Kindrum Lough and also at the Meadows Trout Fishery in Rossnakill (11km).
Walking and Cycling
The narrow winding coastal roads around Fanad Beach House pay their part in ensuring a slower pace of life. These roads are ideal for walking and cycling.

With this bridge attractions such as the Atlantic Drive, Rosapenna Golf Club, Meevagh Dive Centre and the Magherabeg Leisure Centre are just 15km from the holiday home
