This unique restored school house is very tastefully furnished with all modern conveniences, yet the character of the old classroom has been retained. Donegal Old Schoolhouse is surrounded by golden sandy beaches of West Donegal’s spectacular coast.

Donegal Old Schoolhouse is set in a spectacular location, in Carrickfinn county Donegal, surrounded by golden sandy beaches and fringed by West Donegal’s spectacular coastal scenery. Carrickfinn is a quiet, peaceful, safe and secluded holiday haven, in the West Donegal Gaeltacht ideal for children.

This unique Donegal self-catering house is very tastefully furnished, with all modern conveniences. The character of the old classroom has been retained and with a glowing fire, the original granite fireplace is a great focus point. The overhead balcony serves as a reading or games area. A number of old school desks have been restored, as are other artefacts such as roll books, schoolbooks and photographs. The Old Schoolhouse features three bedrooms: two double ensuite rooms and one twin room with an adjacent bathroom with bath. There is a fully fitted kitchen, utility room and separate dining area. Outside there is a large garden and deck area. Turf for the open fire is supplied but oil and electricity are metered and charged as per usage.

Enjoy this area of outstanding natural beauty, purple covered mountains, lake filled valleys and a coastline blessed with golden sandy beaches. Carrickfinn takes pride in its Blue Flag beach, which is perfect for swimming, canoeing, wind surfing, or scuba diving in unpolluted waters. Carrickfinn is a perfect location for children, artists, writers, photographers and bird watchers. If you are interested in fishing, there is a huge choice of rivers and lakes in which to try your luck. For golfers there are a number of scenic golf courses nearby. Then there are the islands to explore, a King to be met (on Tory Island) and the highest peak in Donegal to be climbed. And, to end the day, take a short walk to the nearest beach and watch the sun go down over the Atlantic Ocean.
