  • "Absolutely stunning."

    Amazing unspoiled sea view, underfloor heating, en-suite bathrooms for every bedroom. 10 minutes walk from a beautiful beach and the house is greatly stocked. The pool table was a hit with our two girls. Best stocked and facilitated house we ever stayed in. Our only suggestion is that a patio area with chairs and table would add more value to the holidays.

  • "We were VERY pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Whitehorse House in Donegal."

    The location is absolutely stunning, and the house takes full advantage of this - the kitchen and seating areas have massive windows, which look out onto the rolling waves of the sea, two of the four bedrooms also have excellent sea views. However, the house itself would be what we would consider a 'destination' in itself - underfloor heating throughout, large and spacious rooms, an extremely well stocked kitchen (we like to cook, and most times we hire a house, we have to bring our supplies with us - none were needed this time, everything we wanted was provided, and more). Everything supplied was of a very high quality. Very comfortable beds, plenty of extra sheets and towels there if needed, Dyson hair dryers, washer and dryer in the boiler room, lots of very cosy armchairs, a library with loads of books, open fire (which we didn't need, as the heating was on 24/7), all four bedrooms are en-suite, and tons of hot water always available, all four bedrooms also have TVs too. Upstairs there is another massive room, with a huge TV at one end, a table tennis table, snooker table, games console and a desk looking out to sea. The house was spotless when we arrived, and Anne was there to greet us and show us around - very friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for her. She also came to see us off on our last day. We were a party of six adults (and two dogs), and we stayed for seven nights, but all of us were disappointed that we had not booked for longer. If you get a chance to to to Whitehorse House - do it!! You won't regret it.

  • "We were blown away by the quality of the accommodation."

    The kitchen facilities were fantastic and the selection of spices the best I’ve seen in a rental. The beds were outstandingly comfortable. And the location superb. The games area was brilliant. My kids loved it and I think will talk about it for years to come. Thank you for your hospitality. I struggle to think of any constructive criticism. It was great.

    Thank you Christopher for your kind comments. We were glad you enjoyed your stay and your review was greatly appreciated. Property Owner

About the location


Arranmore Island 7.5 miles; Letterkenny 32 miles.

Up until 1762, entry into the town of Dungloe in Donegal was only possible via the stepping stones dotted over the river. Thankfully, now visitors from all over the world can take the much easier route over Donegal Bridge and enjoy this charming town in County Donegal with ease. Dungloe is known locally as 'The Capital of The Rosses', the name given to this region of the county. The town, which has become recognised as a centre for traditional Irish music, has a selection of shops, bars and eating places, as well as events taking place throughout the year, including the annual 'Mary from Dungloe' festival. A fisherman's paradise, the area has over 130 lakes and rivers and is renowned for its fishing and great sea angling, with several charter boats available in nearby Burtonport, from where diving can also be enjoyed. There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Arranmore and Rutland Island. Wonderful wildlife can be found in the bogs and reed beds, while golfers will love the variety of golf courses found in the surrounding area. With hills and mountains to explore, the dramatic coastline to enjoy and so much to see and do, this is sure to make the perfect base for your Donegal holiday.
