A special corner of the world
We have a lot of landscape packed into our little part of the world. Cliffs, forests, beaches, lakes and the iconic Muckish and Errigal mountains, all surrounded by the Atlantic ocean. Ever-changing with the seasons, hours and weather.
Wake late, take your fill of the clean Donegal air, eat a leisurely breakfast. Wander the countryside and watch the landscape change with the weather and light. Take a long, hot soak in a seaweed bath. This is the perfect place to set a subdued pace and let the busy everyday fade away.
A short stroll or cycle away is the busy seaside village of Dunfanaghy. To the South are the iconic mountain peaks of Errigal and Muckish. On all other sides we’re surrounded by sea, beach, cliff, forest, gorse, heather and sand dunes.
The landscape changes from bright sunshine yellow to dusky heather purple with the seasons, and above us is a never-ending sky that hosts sunsets, storms, stars and the northern lights.
Within a short radius of Horn Head we have ancient forests, national parks teaming with wildlife, neolithic stone circles, Napoleonic towers, historic houses, breathtaking views and our special corner of the Wild Atlantic Way to explore.
