Beach house in idyllic location- stunning sea and mountain views

Nestling on the edge of a beautiful bay, and situated just a few meters from the beach, our charming, bright, light-filled and spacious beachfront house, with 18 foot high ceilings, enjoys stunning and uninterrupted views of the nearby sea and mountains.

Our home has been architecturally designed to make the most of the spectacular local scenery.

It is built on a site of two thirds of an acre and is on 3 levels.
Built with natural Donegal Stone, it is full of nooks and crannies and exudes rustic charm and character.

The second floor includes a large landing, two bedrooms (one en suite), a walk-in hot press, a separate WC and an internal balcony with great views through the windows - ideal for a quiet read.

Outside there is a large patio area with table and chairs, facing east and south, where you can relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery.
