The rugged landscape that surrounds the holiday home is ideal terrain for the keen walker or cyclist while the very scenic Gweedore Golf Club is a 5 minute drive away.
The holiday home is located in the heart of the Gweedore Gaeltacht. Along with the Irish language a healthy traditional Irish music scene has survived in Bunbeg and the wider Gweedore area. During the summer months there are music sessions in the local pubs in both Bunbeg and Derrybeg. Leo's Tavern in Meenaleck (7km) is the home of the world famous Clannad and Enya and holds regular music sessions throughout the year.
