Home in Dublin with holiday Home in County Donegal,North West Ireland.

Our residence is in Rathfarnham, Dublin and our summer house is in Derry Beg in the north west of Ireland-about 4 hours drive from Dublin or 25 minutes flight. The nearest large town to Derry Beg is Letterkenny.
Derry Beg is on the Wild Atlantic Way ( a 2,500 km coastal route) and is in a Gaeltacht area where Irish is the usual language of communication although English is widely understood.The area is famous for its traditional music and its stunning scenery.
There are lots of unique experiences to be enjoyed: a trip to Tory island,a tour of Glenveigh House and Gardens, a walk on an endless deserted beach,a climb up Errigal mountain,a trip on DunLewey lake,a traditional music session in a local pub perhaps Leo's Tavern where Enya and Clannad started out.
This is a beautiful unspoiled authentic place which has yet to be discovered.
Both houses are available for exchange offering the best of city and sea-side life.
