This is a stunning home that we love. It took us a few years to build it and have been using ourselves for many years - we've decided to share it. Check out the photos, it's just such a wonderful home perched up on top of the cliff overlooking Donegal Bay.

Featured in the Irish Times newspaper - (URL HIDDEN)

Hopefully it's apparent from the photos but this is not an ordinary house - the house itself is amazing, as are the views. I'm comfortable to stick my neck out and say that as I know you'll love it. If you don't believe me then check out the reviews so far. Just in case you're someone who doesn't read the reviews I've taken a few exact quote examples to give you an idea...

'This house is spectacular! Truly stunning views matched by a comfortable, modern, luxurious house. If it's available, just book it.'

'I've lived in Ireland for 17 years, and have never stayed in a holiday house that comes anywhere close to this one.'

'Absolut the best house you can stay at the coast of Ireland!!!!'

'A completely beautiful house surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. I could not recommend this house more'

'Wow just Wow. Great house and what a location.The views are amazing. '

'This house is unbelievable - the pictures don't lie - the views are spectacular. We almost didn't want to leave the house because the views were so amazing!!'

'This house is just amazing! We felt like millionaires living there'

'Wow! What a house and what a view.
Don't waste your time looking around for something better - This is the place!'

'Don't think twice - you MUST rent this house!!'

'a MTV style crib that won't break the bank'


The House - it's designed to be open and social, modern but still cosy.
The kitchen/dining/living area is all open in the shape of a large L. The setup is perfect for a group of people cooking at home, or just hanging out and socialising. The kitchen is a large well fitted out space and has a huge picture window out to the bay - a real joy to cook in. The kitchen extends out via a large island to the dining area. This turns a corner into a spectacular more than double height lounge/living room, with double height windows again out to the beautiful Donegal Bay view. A huge amount of light comes through to the living area side of the house as to it consists mainly of glass to take advantage of the views. The photos illustrate it somewhat, but they really don't do it justice and are limited to 24.

Polished concrete floors throughout living area - looks great, but also a great conductor of heat for the geothermal heating system and underfloor heating. Nice to be eco-friendly and just a little warm underfoot sometimes in Donegal! There's a stove fireplace in the living room, nice to sit around.

There are 4 bedrooms in total and they are all large, each has its own character, all good wardrobe space. There are also 4 bathrooms in the house, all of which are a good size, and 2 of which are ensuite - makes it easy for a group of people.

The main bedroom has our favourite view from the house to welcome you when you open the curtains in the morning - looking out to the bay over the Rossnowlagh cliffs. There is a separate large walk in wardrobe room. The bathroom is ensuite. It has really high ceilings, with a huge walk in shower. There is a large sink that's built into an antique dresser. Add in the gorgeous tiles and it's a room with a lot of character! The bed is a double

Orla, the other family member, is the artistic one. And she had a lot to do with the next bedroom - again a big room, lots of quirky beautiful little features, the main one being the bed headboard that she made. The ensuite bathroom is a wet room with beautiful glistening marble mosaic tiles, a very modern sleek sink...minimalist, but touches like the antique mirror being backlit and shells from the nearby Rossnowlagh beach warm it up. There's also a disco ball in the bedroom I forgot to mention : ). Double bed. Large wardrobe space.

There's another room which is probably the cosiest bedroom. This has a queen bed and again plenty of wardrobe space.

Then the spare room where there is 2 beds - a regular double bed and also a couch that folds out into a bed (the couch bed isn't quite a double but its bigger than a single). There are beautiful views of the Dartry Mountains (the famous Benbulben) from the room. The bathroom is not ensuite, but right next door - and this is the bathroom that has the bath (there is also a shower in the bath). This bedroom and bathroom are also the only ones that are upstairs - the other 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms are all on the ground floor)

All the bathrooms have showers were you can set the temperature on the wall before you get in...seems like a bit of an extravagance, but pretty damn good actually.

Above the dining area in a walled off mezzanine area is the den. There's a flat screen TV with surround sound, gaming system (useful for kids and adults alike!), some dvds, board games, comfortable couch and chairs - the chill area!

Kitchen pretty much has everything you'll need (check just in case there's something you're particularly after) and for coffee lovers there's a Nespresso machine with pods. If you want to bring your own coffee there's a cafetiere. There are some very basic provisions in the kitchen - please check if in doubt. In the main you'll need to bring/get what you need yourself.

The View! - 180 degree views of sea and mountains. We've included a few photos, but really it just doesn't do it justice either in how it looks or how it changes from minute to minute. To the west you can see the Dartry mountains in Sligo, the famous Benbulben, Mullaghmore head and the old gothic style castle. On a clear day you can see the Nephin mountains in Mayo! Following the eye around from west to east it's the expanse of Donegal Bay and the hills over the other side, then to Rossnowlagh strand (which is a 2 minute drive), round to the Devil's Bit mountain the other side.

The sunsets can be stunning - I've included one or two in the pictures.

The house has a wonderful open plan layout and can really suit either a couple who want an amazing space to themselves for a few days or a family or two families staying together. We do try to price it so that it's affordable for a couple, particularly during the week. For families and bigger groups there are 4 bathrooms for the 4 bedrooms - so lots of space for each other.

We've also had small business meetings, small yoga/qigong retreats, small family events. Depending on what you want to do and the completeness of the information you provide we are open to things like this but aren't making any promises - basically ask us and tell us as much as you can and we'll let you know if we're willing to go with it and if it will cost any extra and/or if we need an extra deposit. The house is available to rent as accommodation for those listed on the booking inquiry - it is not a cheap venue hire to which you can just bring who you like. Only people who are on the booking to stay are allowed in the house, unless consent is received in advance.

It's a great base - there are a huge amount of things within driving distance...people love the place as a base - you can easily head further north into donegal or west to sligo/mayo. We can give you plenty of tips to make sure your stay is the best it can be.

And it's really not a bad place to be holed up in case the Irish weather isn't being too cooperative!! There's a beauty in that strong west of Ireland weather, and a great vantage point of the bay to watch it. Some of the best times I've had there have been in that kind of weather, just hanging out with family/friends. Many people have commented they didn't want to leave the house to go places, I've felt that way myself many times when I've been (URL HIDDEN) just a great place to be cosied up in.

There is wired fast fibre broadband unlimited. The broadband speed we have here is faster than I have with my fibre broadband in central London where I live - this is very unusual for Donegal. You can stream to the TV whatever you like - there's a chromecast device there but you can bring your own should you choose. There are also some board games, books, old surf magazines, various Irish books.

There is also a bluetooth speaker in the living area to which you can stream your own music.

We will of course do our best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. So talk to us - let us know what you're interested in, what you're hoping to get out of your stay - there's so much interesting stuff in the vicinity, we will be able to point you in the right direction. We want you to leave feeling like you cant wait to get back.

USEFUL THINGS VERY NEARBY...

- Small shop with all the basics 3 or 4 minutes walk from the house, so if you run out of anything you'll be able to get it here.

- Great pub 10mins walk...the Smugglers Creek is an award winning pub with great atmosphere and good food...very easy to park up there for a while (unfortunately this could be a 2 minute walk but there is an issue with the 'short cut' over insurance with a neighbouring property so it is necessary to take the long 10 minute walk around)

PLEASE NOTE - the base cost per night is exactly that. It fluctuates and is higher at weekends and the summer. Also for more than 2 guests staying there is an additional charge per guest per night - this will be factored into the price automatically when you make your enquiry through Airbnb, so make sure you put the correct number of guests on the booking request and it will generate the correct price for you. Depending on the proportion of adults to children and some other factors we am open to discussing the price on certain occasions.

Localização

Rossnowlagh, Donegal, Irlanda

In the short overview we've highlighted the house itself and the view. There's a huge range of activities and attractions right on the doorstep. The location of Rossnowlagh right in the 'belly' of Donegal Bay gives really easy access to Sligo and Mayo to the west, the waters of Lough Erne and many other lakes inland, and the rest of Donegal to the north. So many things to see and do!

We've got quite a few little 'secrets' that we don't shout about but are happy to share in person re things to do ; ) - cliff top walk to an old ruined castle, deserted beach walks that only appear with the tide, where to pick mussels, the best eggs 5mins walk away, the traditional music places, viewpoints, and loads loads more.

Things to do/attractions that we can help you organise -
-
- Surfing (the best wave in Ireland, the Peak, is 20 minutes drive away. For intermediates/beginners Rossnowlagh strand is great, and you can see the wave from the window! Loads of surf all down that coast going west!)
- Horse riding
- Beautiful hill walking/hiking
- Beach recommendations
- Excellent golf
- Restaurant recommendations (2 restaurants within 5 minutes walk! Gaslight and award winning Smugglers Creek pub)
- Bar recommendations, some great traditional music sets
- Kayaking
- Kite surfing
- Jet skiiing
- Fishing
- Various historical sites
