The house is located on the 'Wild Atlantic Way' route.

From first to the last the design and execution of this house has been influenced by the owner himself and reflects his artistic nature. You will be happy to spend time in and around the house soaking up its relaxed atmosphere.

The house is accessed via a private road and is enclosed by sheltering rock- faces, giving the back garden complete privacy. There is a path which leads directly to the strand from the garden ( walking boots recommended ) . The afternoon hours, while the tide is out, affords you the opportunity to explore this unspoiled area and observe at close quarters the numerous sea birds. It is also home to a wide variety of shell fish and includes mussel and commercial oyster beds. The evening brings the tide and with it the chance to swim in calm waters. Depending on the tides and season,the water depth varies between one and two meters

The same strand at its furthest point adjoins Carrickfinn blue flag beach and the Crolly river from where the young salmon begin there long swim to Canada.

The view from the front of the house is dominated by the majestic form of Mount Errigal. The barbecue and patio areas are situated to take maximum advantage of the visually stunning sunsets.

Annagry village has three pubs and two restaurants. One of which is the renowned Killindarragh House “Danny Minnie´s”. Some of the regions most famous artists, such as Clannad, Enya and Altan began their careers playing in the traditional pubs which define the area. You can leave your car at home in the evening and stroll to the village. It's only a few minutes away.

There is a large selection of hotels and pubs in the Rosses region where you can get good food and entertainment at reasonable prices.

Dungloe town has a variety of supermarkets including Aldi and Lidl.

Other Activities: Day trips by ferry to Gola andTory islands
