Overview

About the property

Sleeps 7. 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house in Donegal Town

A luxurious holiday home sleeping 7, on the beach at Inver Port with phenomenal sea views. On the Wild Atantic Way a scenic route around the Irish coast. this property is located on one of its scenic viewpoints.

The fabulous interior features a Jacuzzi bath, real open lounge fire, oak floors and top quality kitchen with granite worktops.

The house is within walking distance of a local pub and shop with a large private patio and car parking. From the lounge patio doors and balcony, dining area and bedrooms you have stupendous sea views across Donegal Bay to the golden sand beaches of Rossnowlagh, Sligo hills and Murvagh golf links, the home of Donegal Town golf club.

The shore House has been furnished with quality oak furniture and leather sofas. The kitchen has fitted appliances consisting of, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge freezer and microwave. There is a large living dining room stretching the whole width of the property where the sea views through the large glass patio doors across the balcony are phenomenal. Relax and watch satellite TV with surround sound on one of the three comfortable leather sofas. You can have dinner at the stylish custom oak dining table with sea views making it a meal to remember!. The real fire means you will have warmth if visiting when the weather isn't quite perfect.

In Ireland no house would be complete without a traditional Irish 'scullery'.... utility room, which has it's own outside entrance and where you can change out of wet walking/sea gear without needing to walk through the kitchen or lounge. There is also a wc and kitchen sink drainer...... perhaps for cleaning those mackerel you caught earlier! Upstairs the master bedroom has a magnificent shower ensuite, as well as views over the bay. The second double bedroom also has dramatic sea views and shares with the triple bedroom the main bathroom with jacuzzi bath, separate shower, wc, basin etc.

Jib Luff is situated right on the sea at Inver Port. This new town house is one of five next to the Pier. The house has a large private patio with garden furniture and its own parking area. The townhouses are part of a private complex with their own grounds. The garden areas to the front of the properties are communal and built around the old stone walls of the only whaling station in Ireland. Jib Luff has sandy and rocky stretches of beach in front of it. The house faces south east to catch the sun and to benefit from the unbelievable views across Donegal Bay to Rossnowlagh and the Sligo Mountains. The patio area faces west for sun in the afternoon. The sea is everywhere you look from this house, both inside and out.

.

Inver Port is a small bay with it's own pier and beaches. You can walk along the sea road to the larger village of Inver to the Rising Tide Pub where the river Eany enters Inver Bay. On the main road there is a small post office/coal and wood store called Cassidy's both within walking distance. Further west from Inver is St John's point which sticks out into the ocean with sandy beaches, lighthouse and a great restaurant at the Castle Murray Hotel.

.

Unlike many holiday home rentals in the West of Ireland, you are not isolated. Donegal town and all it's facilities are only a 10 minute drive away. Here you have Banks, Pubs, two large supermarkets, internet cafe, many restaurants and takeaways including Chinese, Indian and Italian. Whilst the thriving towns and cities of the Donegal area are a relatively new phenomenon, even with the recent downturn, they still remain essentially Irish, with great eateries and a wide range of shops. In essence, the Celtic Tiger never quite made it here and the area remains unspoiled. Donegal Town says it all .... natural hospitality, good food, and great craic all make for a holiday to be remembered when staying at Jib Luff in Inver Port.

A bountiful mixture of mist, myth and magic.

What a fantastic location, so unusual to hear the sea as well as enjoying the amazing views across Donegal Bay. A very comfortable and well equipped house. Thank you!

Ein schönes, aber keinesfalls luxuriöses Ferienhaus am Hafen mit schönem Blick

  • 3 of 5

Unser erster Eindruck vom Haus war leider nicht gut, da es , man muss es leider sagen, schmutzig war. Wir mussten also erstmal gründlich putzen, was wir uns so natürlich nicht vorgestellt hatten. Das Yakuzi blieb dennoch unbenutzbar, die Matrazen im Kinderzimmer sind erneuerungsbedürftig und es gibt kein WLAN, was insbesondere unseren Kindern missfiel. Klarstellend sollte gesagt werden, dass die Terasse zugleich der Autostellplatz ist und hinter dem Haus liegt. Ansonsten ist das Haus geschmackvoll eingerichtet und man kann sich darin wohlfühlen. Die Küche ist recht gut ausgestattet, teilweise war das Geschirr etwa knapp bemessen. Für schlechtes Wetter wäre ein Trockner von Vorteil.

Die Lage des Hauses ist sehr schön, wir haben den wunderbaren Blick über die Bucht bei jedem Wetter genossen! Zum nächsten Laden und Pub ist der Weg zu Fuß zu weit, da braucht man schon ein Auto. Wir waren auch bei Nancy essen - in knapp 15 Minuten ist man mit dem Auto dort. Unsere Ausflüge zum Leuchtturm, zu den Slieve Leagues und nach Malin Head waren großartig. Donegal hat uns insgesamt sehr gut gefallen.

Inver Port is a small bay with it's own pier and beaches. You can walk along the sea road to the larger village of Inver to the Rising Tide Pub where the river Eany enters Inver Bay. Or launch your boat and sail or motor down to the pub at high tide, which has its own pier outside! Now that's called arriving in style! On the way you can purchase large sea trout from the local fishermen. On the main road there is a small supermarket called Inver Stores, and another small post office/coal and wood store called Cassidy's both within walking distance. Further west from Inver is St John's point which sticks out into the ocean with sandy beaches, lighthouse and a great restaurant at the Castle Murray Hotel.

Unlike many holiday home rentals in the West of Ireland, you are not isolated. Donegal town and all it's facilites are only a 10 minute drive away.
