  • "We really enjoyed our stay at 3 Harbour view."

    It is a great house, however a few things could have made it a superb holiday house. As in other comments, we agree that there is inadequate seating for the size of the house. Website boasts how it is suitable for 10+ people yet there are only seats for 6 in the living room and at the dining table. This was frustrating as we were unable to sit together comfortably. There was also a lack of kitchen supplies... dinner plates and baking trays and bowels for cooking especially. A few arm chairs for reading scattered around would also vastly improve this house. It is beautiful in so many ways. But it is misleading to advertise as suitable for larger groups due only to supplies not size. The house was very comfortable and clean and beautiful views and location. It really could be perfect with just a few extra supplies.

  • "We loved the house and area."

    The views were spectacular and the house was clean. More living room furniture for a large group would be nice. The kitchen also could be better stocked. Our vacation was perfect as Donegal is beautiful- but you overcharged us $200. ($200 more was put in my credit card than the bill listed on VRBO). I contacted you several times and had no response and finally had to contact VRBO. I still have not been reimbursed. I would recommend this house highly but overcharging and not responding is not good for business; I have used Sykes Properties before, an English company I believe, and this is a big business with no interactions or awareness of Irish culture or what happens when you rent America home or go to a Band B. In other Irish homes, you find tea, breads and items for a warm welcome from the owners. Americans have come to expect this warm welcome after a long flight and drive as this is a part of the Irish warm welcome. Sykes is buying lots of beautiful Irish properties, and in my opinion, taking lots of Irish charm out of the experience.

  • "We had a great stay at No 3!"

    !!! Beautiful location and beautiful house! Would love to go back and would recommend to friends and family! The steep climb up the hill is well worth the View! On arrival house was very clean and tidy! Not a pin out of place! However, if I was to be fussy in the living room, the house can sleep 10-11 people but there are only sofas to accommodate 6 people, we weren't all able to sit together at night to watch a movie, which was disappointing. Plenty of space in the room for more furniture. Ample carparking space but tricky area to play foot ball, we lost 3 balls :)

The property

Buncrana 3.9 miles.

Overlooking Lisfannon Beach in Gollan Hill near Buncrana, rests this spectacular holiday home, 3 Harbour View.

Flooded in natural light from large windows and patio doors, this contemporary home enjoys sea-views, as well as a balcony with furniture.

Bring along your family and friends to this coastal escape and park up at the foot of the property on the driveway.

Step inside the detached home and discover the spacious kitchen with three electric cookers, two microwaves and a gas hob to whip up tasty dishes.

Leave your favourite bottle of wine in the American fridge/ freezer, as you join your guests in the dining room with a backdrop of the coast and tuck-into hearty meals.

Throw open the patio doors to watch the sun set above the horizon, here you can lounge on the bench and make the most of the sights.

Adjacent is the sitting room, where you can look forward to unwinding on the plush sofas or curling up on the armchair with a good book.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the glass panelled staircase to choose between four beautifully presented bedrooms, all with delightful sights over the beach.

There are two family bedrooms with a king-size bed and single, along with en-suite bathrooms.

One of the family rooms benefits from a balcony with outdoor seating to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning.

Choose between another king-size bedroom and a twin room and you will find a family bathroom with a tub and walk-in shower to freshen up.

In the morning, awaken with a walk along the sandy Lisfannon Beach and marvel at coastal views from Lough Swilly Marina.

Jump in the car and visit the vibrant town of Buncrana for delicious eateries, a golf course to test your swing and a pier to grab fresh fish and chips.

Why not venture to the city of Londonderry, ideal for budding historians with its gothic St Columb's Cathedral, Tower Museum and Brooke Park Derry for a peaceful picnic?

The fantastic beaches scattered along the coastline are big attractions for families and they also cater for watersports enthusiasts with many water-based sports on offer.
