Staggering views fill this design-driven Donegal escape. Walk wild Atlantic routes, taste the terroir & seaweed-steam your cares away

Breac House is a conversation-starter of building, all the more striking for its proximity to sleepy Dunfanaghy. Epic views over sea and Mount Muckish pour into vast rooms that showcase fine Donegal materials, from Ardara quartize to Fanad granite.

Enjoy the discreetly delivered daybreak service in your spacious, sea-view bedroom. Coffee is ground nearby; the honey and pottery are local. Breakfast proper follows – with organic dairy treats and Haven Smokehouse salmon. Save space for your bike-ride or day-trip picnic, dropped at your door in a house-designed backpack.

Warm hosts Cathrine and Niall – he summered here as a child – live upstairs and give you hand-drawn maps, binoculars and bikes to borrow.

Walk Horn Head from the door, visit Tramore Strand or take a private garden sauna. It’s a quick drive to The Mill restaurant, Cove Café or Patsy Dan’s pub. Enjoy a nightcap with the late-setting sun beyond endless windows.
