  • "From the moment of booking nothing was to much trouble from Alan the owner ."

    The home itself was warm clean and everything we expected and more home from home experience. We loved every second of it and can’t wait to spend more family time at Rockville Greencastle. What’s not to love a wonderful home and beautiful beach’s near by .

  • "What a fabulous week we had in Rockville."

    The house was perfectly located for travelling around the Inisowen Peinsula and we were blessed with good weather which made all the difference. The house was beautiful, very spacious and comfortable. Everything you need for a family holiday is provided. The owner was really nice, left boxes of sweets as a welcome pack and went above and beyond to return something we had left behind. I couldn't recommend Rockville enough!

  • "I’ve just spent a week in Rockville and was very impressed with the house which was perfectly located to access both Moville and green castle ."

    We had everything we needed in the house and the owner was always on hand should we need to contact him which we didn’t! Will definitely return and thank you.

  • "Lovely house, just as described."

    Comfortable warm and modern. The house could do with extra pans in the kitchen and extra towels. A manual with instructions would be handy. But overall a great house and location. We would definitely stay here again.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Greencastle in County Donegal is Rockville, a fabulous three-bedroom cottage, inviting six guests and one well-behaved dog.

Enjoying far-reaching views of Lough Foyle and a rural setting, whilst a short journey away from the beach and a host of amenities, Rockville offers an ideal base for a self-catered stay, including a wrap-around garden, flexible sleeping arrangements, a well-equipped kitchen, and an external bar.

Travel up the gated driveway before unpacking your belongings, entering the spacious kitchen/diner; be welcomed by a range of state-of-the-art appliances to assist with mealtimes, along with a dedicated dining area to gather as a group.

Enjoy a stroll across the wrap-around garden before relaxing in the sitting room with the woodburning stove alight.

Finish off the evening with a nightcap in the bar, before resting in one of three well-appointed bedrooms, including two doubles and a twin.

Awaken to a refreshing shower in either shower room, before beginning your adventure across County Donegal, starting off by following Ballybrack Beach Walk, touring Inishowen Maritime Museum, or enjoying a round of golf at Greencastle Golf Club, enjoying extensive countryside views.

Continue to visit Stroove Beach and the heritage-rich Inishowen Head Lighthouse, before crossing the border by ferry, with the chance to hike through Umbra Nature Reserve, exploring the breath-taking landscape of Dunne Waterfall, opt for the best vantage point at Gortmore Viewpoint, or hike up to the Mussenden Temple, offering views over Northern Ireland.

Experience all of this, and more, at Rockville.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €350.

About the location


Moville 3 miles.

Greencastle is a pretty holiday village on the County Donegal coast, and is home to Newborough Castle, built from green freestone, and giving the village its name. The pier in the village is a bustling, exciting place, with fishermen landing their catch daily, and with docked boats bobbing about in the water. Lying on to Lough Foyle, one of just three glacial lakes in Ireland, Greencastle is great for fishing, while Greencastle Golf Club is just 1 mile away and offers 18 holes surrounded by beautiful scenery. There are lots of areas around Lough Foyle to explore, and there’s even the famous lighthouse at Inishowen Head to enjoy. Dine out in style in Greencastle, at the award-winning Kealy’s Seafood Bar and enjoy a pint in one of the local pubs. Greencastle is a great Irish seaside location.
