What makes this house unique

This beautiful property is spacious, catering for people of all ages. It boasts, breathtaking scenery of Ballyness Bay. Taking relaxing walks or hikes in the countryside or a stroll along many of the glorious beaches. This House is so close to the heart of a quiet village, near to Teac Billies Pub. This Pub is not to be missed for the legendary Traditional music held every, Tuesday Night. Musician's travel from around the country and further a field just to play here. And with its lead back atmosphere, you can sit back, relax and take in the joys of what this beautiful, stunning part of Donegal has to offer.

Quiet location and great base for all the activities around Gortahork

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, light and lovely warm house over 3 floors. 9 of us stayed here and all of us thought it was ideal for entertaining family as well as a base for all the walking and beach visits we did. Owners instructions were clear regards who to contact if any issues arose - and there were none. Housekeeper was friendly, helpful and on hand if I needed anything too. Great kitchen /dining room with plenty of plates/pots and pans etc. Right beside the hotel if you fancy not cooking and if you've got transport you're not far from other villages for a change of scenery. I heartily recommend it!

Overall a great stay

  • 4 of 5

Fab property in a lovely location. Modern, clean and in a picturesque part of Donegal. Great facilities - the games room was very popular.

Made to feel very welcome.

My only advice is to be more clear about what to do with the keys upon exiting the property as I was a little unsure.

But overall: highly recommended!

Not bad at all

  • 2 of 5

The house is very good. The view was not as good as you expect. You can use the hotel for your meals it's good. There's also a pub across the street.

Spacious, clean house, with modern comforts in gorgeous setting.

  • 5 of 5

The holiday house in Gortahork is beautiful, with all the modern amenities one needs, a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, three floors of living space for a large group to spread out. My husband and two children and I had more than enough space to be comfortable. The house is steps away from a wonderful pub, Teac Billie, that has all the charm one would want in an Irish village pub. The proprietor of the pub was friendly and welcoming, and we learned a great deal about the village and the area around. We were sorry to miss the live music they have there weekly. The house is close to lovely sights and great hiking--Mount Errigal, Glenveagh Castle, The Poisoned Glen, the beach at Dunfanaghy, and more. There's a well-stocked shop across the road. I recommend the house for large parties and families with children. Gortahork is far from the madding crowd. We encountered very few foreign tourists, which was a plus for us. We felt as though we were experiencing authentic Ireland.

Great Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

Myself my wife, Two daughters/husbands and two children stayed here for a weekend. The house has everything needed for a holiday home and is in a great location for Beaches, Golfing, Mountain Climbing, Fishing and touring the Donegal area. All linen and towels are provided and the house is very clean and in great condition and we will certainly use it in the future. You can get a superb Breakfast in the hotel next door for 10 Euro. We would certainly recommend this house for use as a holiday home.

Many thanks to the owner Ray for all information and assistance provided.
