Donegal has 13 Blue Flag beaches, more than any Irish county. The 3-mile long sandy stretch of Ballymastocker Bay (just 1 mile from site) is one of the most spectacular, sweeping from Portsalon to the Knockalla coast road. Just 7 miles from the site to the north is the Fanad Head lighthouse, a great spot for whale watching. Nearby Ballyheirnan Bay is home to Adventure One Surf School (00353 87 628 5565) – all abilities welcome. Five Fingers Strand on the Inishowen Peninsula boasts some of the highest sand dunes in Europe – a great spot for some seaside solitude. While even further east, Kinnagoe Bay is a top spot for sea fishing, with the Armada shipwreck of La Trinidad Valencera a magnet for pollack, dogfish, bass and flounder. Donegal Bay Waterbus (00353 74 97 23666) runs 75-minute tours, departing from the pier in Donegal Town (around an hour's drive) – make sure the camera's charged for snaps of the seal colony and Bluestack Mountains. Glenveagh National Park is Ireland's second biggest. It's home to the country's largest herd of red deer and the formerly extinct golden eagle were reintroduced into the park in 2000.

Food & Drink

Complimentary organic fruit, veg and free-range eggs are available to guests in season. The well-equipped communal kitchen has everything you're likely to need, with the Gala convenience shop supplying a wide array of groceries, plus a deli, off licence, and takeaway pizzas at weekends. The Narrow Quarter is a cracking wee eaterie which serves hearty Irish fayre. Warm up with a steaming hot pot of Mulroy Bay mussels after a day spent in the surf, then pop in to The Stores Olde Worlde Bar for a pint of Guinness in the fireside snug. You need to have at least one night of excess on your holiday, and Rathmullan House (00353 74 915 8188) is the perfect place to splurge. This early-19th century, 4 star country house hotel hosts The Cook & Gardener Restaurant. This is sophisticated cuisine celebrating the best of Irish produce, with the all ingredients either locally sourced or grown in Rathmullen's Walled Garden.
