About the property

4 Bed detached family house, sleeps 7+baby. Breathtaking views. Close to Moville

A stunning spacious 4 bedroom detached house with WiFi/ Netflix/ baby equipment plus an en-suite shower room and bathroom (3 WC’s, 2 Showers and 1 Bath in all). It also boasts a beautiful landscaped garden plenty of seating and private drive and is located on a hillside and has panoramic views over Lough Foyle, the mountains and the fields where you can watch the sheep and cows grazing.

The house enjoys a quiet rural location yet is only 5 minutes drive from both the famous fishing village of Greencastle and the busy town of Moville with shops, harbour and beach. Moville also boasts numerous bars and restaurants and Kealey’s the award winning seafood restaurant is located in Greencastle. The local shop, Jack’s is a two minute drive or a 15 minute walk from the property.

The lounge has a stunning red leather 3 sweater, two seater and single sofa. The TV boasts UK free view channels and Netflix. There is a en-suite master bedroom with king size bed on the ground floor with easy wheelchair access so the house is suitable for wheelchair use for an elderly parent. The shower is large and has a stool. The stylish kitchen has a dishwasher with utility room with washing machine. There are table and chairs in the kitchen. Free Wifi.

The resort of Moville itself is located in the beautiful Inishowen peninsula in Northern Donegal. The natural beauty of this unspoilt and relatively unexplored part of Ireland is breathtaking and will blow you away. The magnificent beaches at Kinnagoe, Shrove and Culdaff are all within easy reach of the property.

Also within easy reach (about a 25 minute drive) is the ancient and historic walled city of Derry with its superb shopping. The Magilligan shuttle Ferry at nearby Greencastle will take you to the northern coast of Northern Ireland – Port Stewart, Portrush, The Giants Causeway, Bushmills, Coleraine and Ballycastle (sails from early July).

What makes this house unique

This property is in a rural setting with panoramic views of the Lough mountains and fields with sheep and cows yet has all the benefits of having shops and restaurants within a 5 minute drive. It is also 5 minutes away from Inish Adventures which has water and land activities for adults and children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Elaine,

So the children went back to school this morning and I finally have time to give some feedback on our stay at The Stables in Donegal.

Basically we were delighted both with the house and the service from you and Mark. Everything was set up well for a family holiday. The children made the most of the Prime stick on the TV but at the same time they enjoyed the space to run around outside. My husband and I enjoyed the comfort of a well equipped house (although I did try to avoid doing too much housework) and the tastefully designed interior. Also it was warm inside on those evenings where the sun didn't shine!

The information you provided was thorough and useful. We ate in Greencastle and Moville on your recommendation and found both restaurants good. We also tried out the Museum Café at the harbour and were delighted by the friendly reception and the delicious cakes! Quite a few times we took the ferry from Magilligan Point to Greencastle and found it as quick and more picturesque than the main routes.

All in all we feel that we landed on our feet with this holiday-let and we would be happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable base from which to explore Inishowen and the Causeway Coast.

Thanks again and best of luck in the future.

The house was nice, very quiet, relaxing, and perfectly situated for our daily excursions. We would definitely return on our next trip to Ireland.

Fantastic home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in Greencastle Co Donegal. This is a fantastic home with everything a family would ever require, from a fully equipped kitchen to spare phone chargers. The house is in immaculate condition and Elaine has gone to extremes in providing the very best home from home. The furniture and beds are top quality and the décor very tasty. Plenty of storage and dressing space.

The booking was simple with almost instant replies from Elaine. On arrival we were met by Mark who showed us around the house and made recommendations of what to see and do in the area.

The location here just outside Greencastle is very safe for children as the house is located in a small one way cul-de-sac of approx. 5 houses, with views out over Lough Foyle.

Nearby you have the small town of Moville and the village of Greencastle with its fishing harbour. In the summer there is a short car/foot ferry from Greencastle to Magilligan Point giving ready access to the North Coast of Northern Ireland.

But why leave Donegal, with its miles of almost private golden beaches, stunning mountain views, hill and coastal walks and great food. Less than an hours drive through the mountains takes you to Malin Head, the most Northerly point of Ireland. The next land mass across the mighty Atlantic is the USA

This was our first time to stay in The Stables and will certainly come back shortly. Now we have found this place we would not be wasting time looking elsewhere. Thanks Elaine.
