Donegal Beach House with stunning sea views. Donegal, County Donegal, Ireland
Additional Location Information
Donegal is the west coast of Ireland at its best ; stunning beaches,sea views and mountains .
This beach house is unusual as it is right on the shore; you can hear the sea as well as see it, There is also a small port and pier for walking or fishing. The house is on a small promentary and you feel surrounded by the sea; truly a place to get away form it all and relax. ther is parking on site.
Inver Port is a small bay with it's own pier and beaches. You can walk along the sea road to the larger village of Inver to the Rising Tide Pub where the river Eany enters Inver Bay. Or launch your boat and sail or motor down to the pub at high tide, which has its own pier outside!On the way you can purchase large sea trout from the local fishermen. On the main road there is a small supermarket called Inver Stores, and another small post office/coal and wood store called Cassidy's both within walking distance. Further west from Inver is St John's point which sticks out into the ocean with sandy beaches, lighthouse and a great restaurant at the Castle Murray Hotel.
Unlike many holiday home rentals in the West of Ireland, you are not isolated. Donegal town and all it's facilites are only a 10 minute drive away. Here you have Banks, Pubs, two large supermarkets, internet cafe, many restaurants and takeaways including Chinese, Indian and Italian. Whilst the thriving towns and cities of the Donegal area are a relatively new phenomenon, even with the recent downturn, they still remain essentially Irish, with great eateries and a wide range of shops. In essence, the Celtic Tiger never quite made it here and the area remains unspoiled. Donegal Town says it all .... natural hospitality, good food, and great craic all make for a holiday to be remembered when staying in Inver Port.
A bountiful mixture of mist, myth and magic.
The ruined walls in front of the house are now preserved and are part of the only whale and basking-shark fishery in Donegal Bay which is unique. It was conducted by the inventor of the first swivel-gun harpoon, Thomas Nesbittt, who also built the first and only Irish whale-rendering plant at Port, Inver, Donegal Bay, where he undertook shore-based whaling at a time when other European whaling industries were based in the northern seas
The northwest of Ireland is a great place to have a sea based holiday, boating, fishing and swimming. The local hospitality is beyond comparison in the many local bars and pubs. Many have live music during the tourist season, our two favourite places to enjoy the craic are Nancy's bar in Ardara and the Smuggler's Creek, in Rossnowlagh. The area to the west of Jub Luff has the highest sea cliffs in Europe at Slieve League.
There are many Irish speaking areas in the small villages dotted along the coastline, with local crafts such as weaving and knitting. The Rosses area around Ardara, the village of Teelin near Slieve League are of particular beauty, and further afield you can enjoy the Giants Causeway, Bluestack Mountains and Bloody Foreland. The area is very much one of natural beauty.... the glorious scenery connects you to the natural charm of Ireland. Even if you do get a bit of drizzle and the tops of the local mountains are shrouded in mist, it is the rich palette of colours that continually tug at your senses.
