Corcreggan Mill Camping, Dunfanaghy, Co Donegal

Corcreggan Mill Camping, Dunfanaghy, Co Donegal

Corcreggan Mill is prefect for a relaxing break in a scenic countryside setting, just a short journey from the seaside village of Dunanaghy on the North West coast of Co Donegal.

There are a range of very popular, fully furnished glamping tents which can accommodate two, three or four people in each. These military style bell tents are equipped with one double and two single beds; electric lighting and plug sockets; rugs and bedside lockers. They are located in the garden, beside the meditation sanctuary. A full continental, buffet breakfast is included and provided in the glamping gazebo alongside, where there is also a BBQ unit with overhead cover.

As well as offering glamping facilities in one of the fine glamping tents, they also have a 150-year-old mahogany railway carriage that has 5 sleeping compartments. There are 2 double bedrooms and 3 twin bed bunks. Behind the carriage, there's a self catering kitchen, a dining room and a comfortable sitting room with an open fireplace for your use. Also, hot showers, and of course a free and extensive continental breakfast! A full Irish breakfast or a simple evening meal is available at reasonable rates, if required. A trailer is also available.

For those who want something truly unique, there is a newly restored and converted, fishing trawler wheelhouse which has to be one of the most quirky and romantic glamping units in Ireland. The authentic old wheelhouse is fitted out now with a kitchen, couch/bed, dining and a shower/toilet/WHB room attached. There is also a BBQ on the bow of your ship and, on the roof-patio - large wooden deck-chairs offer the best-uninterrupted views from the property over Horn Head, New Lake Nature Reserve and the Atlantic Ocean out to Tory Island.

The small, quiet, two-level Motor home Park has electrical hook-ups for up to 7 motor-homes. The park is PET FRIENDLY (charges apply) and has dedicated toilet/shower rooms, waste/recycling facilities and a fresh water resupply.

Onsite there is a wine bar. Gourmet fish and chips and pizza are served in the restaurant.

Besides the comfortable, homely, healing atmosphere on site, there is a wide variety of spectacular scenery nearby or within easy reach. To the west of New Lake is the remote and magical Tramore beach. This breath-taking beach is only accessible on foot (20 min walk), by way of a grass public footpath from Horn Head Bridge. On the way, there is an ancient souterrain to be visited (if you can find it), while, overlooking the northern end of the beach is a Celtic (or, more likely, a pre-Celtic) stone circle. Killahoey beach is easily accessed on foot, from the green in front of Arnold's Hotel, or by foot, bike or car, through the Golf Links, and the car park, onto the beach.
