Time, space & nature
Located on a dramatic headland overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Breac.House is the perfect place to leave the world behind. Designed to be part of the landscape both inside and out, Breac.House sits on Donegal's majestic Horn Head.
Designed by award-winning local architects, and built by a team of local tradesmen, the house is spacious and striking while at the same time extremely sensitive to its surroundings, becoming part of the landscape rather than standing against it. Breac.House takes its name from our townland of Lurgabrack, which means the speckled shin — referring to the speckling of rock on the thin sloping Western-side of the head.
All spaces are designed to feel generous and connect guests to our magnificent views. Relax on your terrace, in our library, by the fireside in the lounge or in the garden. Enjoy our wood fired sauna in the garden or soak in a revitalising seaweed bath.
The house features finishes of natural, native materials and locally crafted furniture, fabrics and products. From handwoven tweed to local made pottery and locally quarried stone to handmade furniture, all of our rooms connect our guests to our location.
Each room has panoramic views and its own private outdoor space to connect you with the dramatic landscape. Relax on your terrace, in the garden, take a walk or explore further. We have a specially designed maps for guests to explore all that area has to offer. We will even share some of our favourite spots.
Super-king, custom-crafted oak bed, Irish-made luxury mattress, pure Irish wool duvets & pillows, and organic fair-trade cotton sheets. Hand-woven Donegal tweed throws and cushions by a local artisan weaver.
Dramatic handcrafted terrazzo bathrooms including wetroom showers with rainmaker showerheads and a range of bespoke bathroom ritual products.
Enjoy your breakfast, arriving as if by magic through your hatch — in bed, at your window seat, or wrap up in a tweed throw and savour on your own terrace or balcony.
Rooms are equipped with everything you need for your stay. The handmade oak servery unit contains daily essentials such as complimentary bottled water, tea and coffee making facilities and some snacks and daily treats.
Private use of our off grid wood fired sauna in the garden. A relaxing seaweed bath for two after a day of activities.
A bespoke picnic bag packed with a hearty lunch for a day of activities. Use of our Irish made bikes. Yoga mats are also provided and can be used in room or on our lower level terrace
