DescriptionThe house is situated in Buncronan, a most attractive area overlooking Inver Bay. (Imagine a triangle with Buncronan as the lower point, then the village of Inver would be the left vertex about 4km away, with Mountcharles, being the right vertex, about 6km away.)
The cottage is a recently completed, detached bungalow. It has four bedrooms to sleep up to eight, a main bathroom, two en-suites and a separate toilet off the utility room, a fully fitted kitchen and a large dining area. The cottage is fully insulated and double glazed, with oil fired central heating, and an additional oil burning stove in the fireplace. Located on a large, landscaped property, - with plenty of parking, a large front lawn, and a patio on one side of the house.
A quiet, scenic, and peaceful location, with spectacular views from the doorstep, - of Inver Bay and the beach. What more could one wish for?
Inver and Mountcharles are two small villages between the larger towns of Donegal (Town) to the East and Killybegs to the West. All are linked by the N56, the southernmost section of the main artery linking all parts of the periphery of Western Donegal, from Dunfanaghy in the North to Letterkenny in the East, and Dungloe in the West. A drive along this route will reward one with some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in Ireland. There will be many side-roads tempting one to take a turn to see what lies beyond, and perhaps 2 or 3 days will be needed to do justice to the tour.
One need not have to travel far, for there is much to see and do along the South Donegal Coast.
Scenic attractions are many, and a visit to the awesome cliffs at Slieve League, said to be the highest in Europe (nearly 2000 feet), is not to be missed.
For those interested in the archaeology and history of the area, a little research will yield a wealth of information, and one can locate the ruins of many old castles, monasteries and abbeys, earlier ring-forts, standing stones, megalithic tombs, wrecks, and other artefacts of times gone by
Activities are many and varied.
Watersports include, Angling. One can fish in fresh water lakes and streams, or hire a boat and go deep sea fishing.
Site seeing boat trips (The water-bus, Donegal Town.), Surfing, -especially at Bundoran, Swimming, Sailing, Sub-Aqua diving, of note is the area off St Johns Point.
Hill walking is another very popular activity, it costs nothing, requires no special gear, (except a pair of good shoes) and is beneficially healthy. There are many areas waiting to be explored.
Horse riding and trekking on horseback, another great way to explore the countryside. Deanes Equestrian Centre is nearby, at Bruckless.
