Holiday Rental House
Teach na nAmhrán: The Song House lies on the world renowned Wild Atlantic Way, one mile from Falcarragh, with local shops and pubs, some serving excellent food. The house has all the character of an old cottage, though with a large kitchen and large sitting/games room. The house oozes with history and culture, having lived a former life as a centre for literary activity for over 20 years under the name 'The Poets House.' This is reflected by original art and photographs hanging on the walls, and a wide selection of books around the house. All bedrooms are simply but aesthetically furnished, with spectacular views over Muckish mountain. Surrounded by an organic garden, with plentiful herbs and soft fruits in season, visitors can also make use of the fire pit on the terrace, an experience ...Teach na nAmhrán: The Song House lies on the world renowned Wild Atlantic Way, one mile from Falcarragh, with local shops and pubs, some serving excellent food. The house has all the character of an old cottage, though with a large kitchen and large sitting/games room. The house oozes with history and culture, having lived a former life as a centre for literary activity for over 20 years under the name 'The Poets House.' This is reflected by original art and photographs hanging on the walls, and a wide selection of books around the house. All bedrooms are simply but aesthetically furnished, with spectacular views over Muckish mountain. Surrounded by an organic garden, with plentiful herbs and soft fruits in season, visitors can also make use of the fire pit on the terrace, an experience not to be missed on a clear moonlit evening, with views out to the mountain. The house has recently been renovated to high environmental standards, including an air-sourced heating system and triple-glazed windows making it warm and cosy even in the Donegal winters. We are environmentally conscious people and aim to keep the Song House's carbon footprint down, and so would like you to respect the environment while you relax in this beautiful part of the world. The nearby coast, with expansive wild and empty beaches bordered by sand dunes, stretch for miles and look out onto Tory Island. The seascapes are spectacular in stormy weather, yet gently sloping sandy beaches make these ideal swimming spots in warmer seasons. The area is rich in recreational activities. There are several popular golf courses, one in Falcarragh itself, a Surf /Water sports school in nearby Dunfanaghy, excellent hill walking, biking and mountain climbing. Cluagh an dTor is an outstanding specialist plant nursery with gardens Dunfanaghy (15 minutes by car) has restaurants, pubs, and an organic/wholefood shop. It also has an historic graveyard dedicated to the victims of the famines, and the Old Workhouse, now a museum. Muckish Mountain, Errigal Mountain, Glenveagh National Park, Doe Castle and Ards Forest Park are a short drive away. Donegal retains traditional values. The local pubs have regular music sessions where Irish music both past and present is performed by local and visiting musicians. Anyone is welcome to join in. As Falcarragh forms part of the Gaeltacht (the Irish-speaking areas) you will hear the language spoken around you. More
