Marina could Blair have been more helpful by providing places in area to visit and eat. She was in constant communication about our upcoming stay which was so nice!! Unlike our other stays on our two week trip. It was easy getting into house and getting set up and everything was provided for us.
It felt like we were at home! Thank you so much
Family Trip to the Open
Marina's house is a great property, in an excellent location both the local restaurants / pubs are excellent. We would really recommend exploring the Fahan headland up to Mailin Head. There is a also a good coastal footpath in Buncrana. The house is exactly as described and has 4 lovely large bedrooms - our party of 8 had plenty of room. I would highly recommend this house :) Richard
Fantastic Stay, Top Class
Just home from a weekend in 5 oceans house for 4 nights, I couldn't speak highly enough of the house and the help Marina gave to me prior to our stay, she just couldnt have been more helpful.. The house is gorgeous beds are very comfy, lovely power showers, very clean, snug, under floor heating is an added bonus... We were here for the rally and it is ideal, close by there is a lovely restaurant called the firebox grill which was very nice.. We hope to come back here next year again...
Thanks Alot Marina for Everyone.
Five Oceans in Fahan
Five Oceans in Fahan is an absolutely fabulous home with a marvelous view of Lough Swilly and Inch Island. Fahan is an ideal location for day trips to explore Donegal including Malin Head (the northernmost point in Ireland), Derry/Londonderry, Giant’s Causeway, and Bushmills. The accommodations are first class and Marina provides detailed instructions and local restaurants and extremely helpful hints that made our stay even more enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Five Oceans.
Very comfortable house
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche in dem sehr gepflegten, großen, warmen Wasser Bad sauberen Haus. Sehr empfehlenswert!
Lovely house, amazing views, beautiful location
Very well designed high spec 5 bed modern house in a quiet village, with spectacular views over Lough Swilly, in a perfectly situated location for seeing the wonderful beaches and cultural treasures of the Inoshowen peninsula and County Londonderry. Fantastic stay, highly recommended.
Located in a pretty village, within walking distance to the beach and 2 restaurants/bars. Sheep graze on Golan Hill behind and over the water on Inch Island. Yet still close to all amenities in Buncrana Town (7km away) and the historic walled City of Derry City (18km away). Surrounding areas have natural beauty to explore with adventure, golf, history and famous tourist attractions. Best of both worlds where you can relax in peace and quite or fill your days with sights and delights of Ireland.
