Self Catering
Nestled in the foothills of Muckish Mountain, 2 miles from spectacular sandy beaches, the Song House is a unique cottage full of character and history, a place to reconnect with the essentials in life.

The Song House ~ Teach na nAmhrán lies on the Wild Atlantic Way. Set in the heart of the traditional Gaeltacht area of Donegal and with spectacular views over to Muckish Mountain, the drama and beauty of the local landscape takes your breath away. Nestled between the Derryveagh Mountain range, and the Wild Atlantic Way with miles of sandy beaches, there is something for everyone close by.

The house has recently been renovated to a high environmental standard. It is comfortably appointed with an air-sourced heating system and triple-glazed windows making it warm and cosy even in the Donegal winters. It is simple but tastefully decorated, with original art and photographs in all rooms. There are five bedrooms all with mountain views, sleeping up to 14, the cosy but spacious kitchen has an open turf fire, and the large sitting room/games room, sports a table tennis table. A bountifully planted garden surrounds the property, with organic flower, fruit and herb beds, and on a clear night guests can sit around the fire pit to watch Muckish Mountain under a full moon.

Originally named The Poets’ House, it was a centre of literary activity for over 20 years with regular visitors including Seamus Heaney. Under its present musical ownership the house continues be full of character, and to inspire creativity and learning.

The unique history and beautiful surroundings make this the perfect place to totally relax and get away from the perpetual noise of life.
