A great place to stay in a beautiful part of the world
Sliabh Dual is an excellent choice for anyone wishing to make the most of what Malin and Inishowen have to offer. It is a short drive from the beautiful beach at Culdaff and the nearby McGrory’s, and provides a convenient base from which Malin Head, Ballyliffin, Moville and other parts of Inishowen can be visited. The house itself was very modern, clean, and can be seen in the photographs, has fantastic views over Trawbreaga Bay and the mountains beyond. Above all, the owner was absolutely fantastic. He provided prompt responses to any questions which we had in advance of our stay, was really friendly, and did everything which he could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Highly recommended!
The accommodation is a very spacious modern cottage that has a home from home feel.
The cottage is beautifully located nestled in a secluded yet elevated position overlooking some beautifull scenery.
The accommodation is a very spacious modern cottage that has a home from home feel.The cottage is fully equipped with everything that you would need, it also has a lovely decked area with a bar- b-q if you are lucky enough to get the weather. Our daughter loved her time there with the ponies in the field across and the farm behind, it is a fantastic family holiday. We enjoyed our stay so much we are going back this year.
The house sits in the most perfect location, isolated with a tremendous view down the valley
Dear Kevin – Sorry it has taken so long to e-mail you following our holiday, but we didn’t want to let it go unsaid, that we had such a lovely week at Sliadh Dual. The house sits in the most perfect location, isolated with a tremendous view down the valley, but also so near to the villages of Culdaff and Malin. It is well furnished and comes complete with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The open fire was really appreciated even in July and was well used. We found the house very easy to relax in straight away and appreciated your warm welcome. Hope to see you again in the near future.

The property was very central to local towns, villages, pubs and world-class beaches
“We spent 4 days in the ‘Sliabh Dual” in early April, during what I would imagine to be the worst weather for years. The property was warm, cosy, and welcoming in such weather where a real fire was much appreciated. All of the furnishings and facilities were very modern and to a very high standard and excellent taste. The lounge comfortably accommodated 5 adults and 2 children. The views of the surrounding countryside were stunning. The property was very central to local towns, villages, pubs and world-class beaches all of which were within very easy driving reach. We can’t wait to return, and the holiday was also very much enjoyed by Lily, our well-behaved Cairn Terrier.”
