Our home

Our holiday home was built in 2001. It fronts immediately on to the shore and the tidal waters of the Bay (very safe for kids!). Downstairs, there is a large open plan living space, incorporating the kitchen and dining area. The dining section has an open ceiling, leading up to an upper level balcony. The newly fitted kitchen has an oil-fired range, electric oven/grill and a gas hob. There is also a fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave oven. There are four bedrooms. Three of them are downstairs. One has a king-size bed and a single with an en-suite. One has a double and a single bed, the other bedroom has a bunk bed and one single bed in it. Upstairs you will find a large living area with panoramic views over most of the island. This room is completely finished in timber (ceilings and floors) and has an open fireplace as well as a Stereo system, TV and Video. The fourth bedroom with a single and a double bed can be found just off this room.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Donegal is renowned worldwide for its spectacular and rugged scenery. With high mountains, open moorlands, deep glens and deserted beaches it is the ideal destination for a well-deserved break. Walk, explore, fish, visit galleries, meet the locals, ride horses, fine food and Guiness, climb, shop. It’s all within a stone's throw! Golf is one of the big attractions to this part of Donegal, the Isle is only two miles away from the famous Rosapenna Links http: //www. rosapennagolflinks. ie/ The Isle as it is known locally, is one of only 6 inhabited islands in Donegal. It can be found in Mulroy Bay between the Fanad and Rosgoill peninsulas. It is joined to the mainland by a causeway (built in 1927) During high tide, the Isle can be cut off from the mainland (don, t worry, this rarely happens and even then, it only lasts an hour) Island Roy is part of the parish of Mevagh and as a separate town land has its own unique history. The original Irish name was Oilean an bhraighe, meaning Prisoners Island. It is also said that a Viking king is buried on the back Isle. Today, the Isle is a permanent home to three families, who have farmed this small patch of land for several generations.
