Buncrana Beach House

Buncrana Beach House is unique holiday home with a stunning location overlooking the beautiful Porthaw beach on the shores of Lough Swilly. Hygge is a Danish word which means creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people around you.

This holiday home has been designed with the Hygge concept in mind to offer a quality of cosiness and comfort that is sure to engender a feeling of contentment and well-being.

The setting of the holiday home on its own will engender a feeling of relaxation.  It is situated on an elevated site overlooking the golden sands of Pothaw Beach. From the house, there are wonderful views over the beach and Lough Swilly towards the hills of the beautiful Fanad Peninsula.

The holiday home has been designed to take full advantage of the lovely views outside. On the first floor level, there are large windows in both the living area and the bedroom which offer panoramic sea views. Both rooms also have direct access to a balcony.

For the last 16 years Buncrana has been our home and we love the friendliness and unspoiled landscapes of the area. Our favourite walk is Lenaun Loop Walk where the frogs flock on St Patrick’s Day, making quite a racket. We are all vegetarians and enjoy growing edibles in the garden; rosemary, wild rocket, parsley, rhubarb, currants, raspberries, strawberries and more. In the evening we sometimes watch films on the projector making the white wall a large screen. Our favourite films are Little Ms Sunshine and the Star Wars movies. We hope that you will enjoy all the good things here as well.

Our intention was to disconnect be close to the beach.. Take in the waves and birds and enjoy.

Our intention was to disconnect be close to the beach.. Take in the waves and birds and enjoy. The location is quiet and with nice privacy from the upper deck/terrace and only a 5 minute drive to Buncrana. The kids were initially in shock with no high speed internet and cable TV but this turned into better family time on the wonderful walking path at the end of the road. Gerry and Karen are nice caring hosts that will communicate and provide complete comfort that your stay will be trouble free.

This little diamond of a find was everything myself and my boyfriend wanted for a weekend away in Ireland

Hygge House Buncrana Inishowen - balcony with panoramic views

This little diamond of a find was everything myself and my boyfriend wanted for a weekend away in Ireland. We travel a lot and love experiencing and exploring new places and spaces and yet all we wanted was to go somewhere to relax, chill, read and simply be – as far from the world as possible.

Everything about staying at Hygge House is stunning With everything one might need for either adventuring through the Wild Atlantic Way of literally not leaving the house (as were pretty much did), the amenities and facilities are top notch. Karen and Gerry are amazing hosts.

Truly amazing. Taking everything into account from sharing their vegetable garden with you to a fabulous welcome note and a well-thought out welcome pack that tells you all you need to know about the house and surround area. They are available to help in any way and really, with truly heartfelt kindness, make you feel at home.
We shopped at the local supermarket and got in food for the weekend. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were spent on the upstairs balcony taking in the most incredible views we have seen in Ireland and watching the sunset was magical as we brought out blankets, candles and a delightful G&T.

This house is about the little things in life, the important moments we tend to miss in the hustle and bustle and daily runnings of our lives – it is about sleeping with the balcony doors open so as to hear the crashing waves and the sound of the dawn chorus, taking in the view, enjoying sunrise and sunset, relaxing by the fire, being truly with those you love, walks on the beach and notably.. with noooooo wifi to distract you from the world you have gladly left for just a few days, it is the kind of relaxation we find so difficult to find in life today. It is simply put, magical.
