Talk about a view, this is not a sea view as they are so often described, ie something that is miles away and yet described as a sea view! you know? (a marketing Licence), No this is the real thing 40 yards from the actual Sea.

You’r are within 10 minutes’ drive of the most fantastic sandy beaches that goes on for miles, the best beaches that Donegal has to offer, awesome. Make sure that you spend time walking the beaches and go up into the mountains for a stroll.

Returning to relax in the spacious cottages and unwind in the Sauna’s, each cottage has one.

You might want to swim among the seaweed, so refreshing and detoxing to the body! Remember that Mulroy Bay is always a few degree’s warmer than the beaches on the Downing’s side of the Rosguill Peninsula.  Entrance for your swim is via the Island Roy Slip way.

Life Ring in cases of emergency are on the slip way, and at two other locations within this swimming area, please ensure that the rings and ropes are always kept in place as they are not a sea play object.

Winding down time is your choice; Donegal Spring Water is available in all the shops for your total rehydration. ( a must in detoxing your system as all medication leave a residue that you have to flush from your body, this is a very important part of your general well-being).

Paddy can also arrange to have someone help you prepare for your own private seaweed bath in the privacy of your cottage should you choose?

Fresh local food , vegetables and fruit are readily available in all the local shops and Butchers.  The Local outdoor market is at the Church Car park every Wednesday from 9am to 5pm, providing a wide array of fruit and vegetables as well as fresh fish,(ie St John the Baptist RC Church).  A market not to be misses!
