Teach Ban is a spacious 4 bedroom holiday home blessed with a wonderfully scenic location on the spectacular Slieve League Peninsula in South West Donegal. Situated on a hillside above the 'Valley of Saint Columba' (Glencolmcille) the holiday home enjoys views that sweep spectacularly over this beautiful valley towards Glen Head and the restless Atlantic Ocean beyond. The rugged hills and mountains that border Glencolmcille on three sides are a walkers paradise
The Village of Cashel

The village has a petrol station, 2 grocery shops, post office, folk village, woollen mill, tourist information office, restaurant, new "village cafe" and three pubs (with great fiddle music often to be found in Roarty's or The Glen Head).
