I stayed at this beautiful holiday home last summer. It was great - beautiful place, amazing surf and great pubs around. The price isn't bad as well.
An atmospheric gem of a lovely informal old house with accommodation and a little traditional bar in an exquisite remote setting overlooking a bay. They serve exceptional spanking fresh local seafood cooked to perfection at very good prices with a few tables looking out over the lovely view. But it is really the atmosphere of the place, the laid back and unpretentious welcome from each family member that makes it like visiting friends, the traditional little bar where you can get a pint of Guinness and hang with the locals, listen to music, have a seafood snack, and then at the end of a brilliant night of chat and craic you can fall into bed in one of their newly renovated bedrooms with lovely views across the bay.

I went on a road trip round Ireland last summer, came across these boys in Donegal. They're based up in Donfanaghy, where the landscape is wild (think North Scotland, just as unspoilt and rugged). The lads sorted us out with cheap accommodation, and pointed us in the direction of great waves. It's a wee bit expensive to get to Ireland, but this is a wild, remote part of the world, and a cracking place to (learn to) surf.
Donegal, the rallying capital of Ireland, is a car driver's dream.
Hire a car and explore Donegal's plunging glens, remote promontories, rugged coastline, meandering roads and mysterious boreens. Tour its unspoilt villages with their
atmospheric pubs and welcoming people. Experience for yourself the famous 'homes of Donegal'.
