Interaction with guests
We will always welcome you with a warm Irish welcome and with freshly homemade bread and tea (or coffee). We love having guests and like to get to know them. We often invite our guest to a house music session (we play Irish music and love a good sing along) We can recommend you walks, places to see, where to go for a good session, and help you along if you have any questions or requests. If you like to walk and explore we provide you with maps and routes and a compass.

About the neighbourhood
We live about 5km outside the next small village of Fintown and are linked via a mountainous back-road to the picturesque town of Glenties (half an hour drive). We are surrounded by forests, lakes, streams and rivers on the foot of Aghla mountain. We are located right beside a waymarked walking way called 'The Gaeltacht/Sli na Finne Way', which makes it a great place for walking and exploring. About half an hours drive from us we have several stunning beaches. The highest cliffs of Europe are nearby as well as Glenveagh National Park. This is also an area well renowned for traditional music. Some famous fiddlers are living nearby and you will find regular traditional music sessions especially in the Glenties/Ardara area.
How to get there
There are bus connections from Glenties to the main village of Fintown as well as from Letterkenny to Fintown. A car is recommended, but if you don't have one we can give you a lift on arrival from Fintown to our place (which would be a 2 hours walk) and of course on return. If you have a sat-navigation system in your car we can give you the exact GPS coordinates to find us.
