    Mountain View is an excellent rental for a family holiday in Donegal. Mary (property contact) is very friendly and helpful. Remotely situated in Ballyboe only a 10 minute drive from Falcarragh or Dunfanaghy. There is no wifi and limited TV which is fantastic for an escape from technology ! The family and dog enjoyed the accommodation and stay. The second time we have stayed there: the first time was a week in October and the second two weeks in June. Local Beaches are excellent. The Shamrock pub (run by Margaret) and coffee shop (Coffee Go Leor run by Milly) in Falcarragh are very friendly and welcoming. All highly recommended.
