Bruckless House

Joan Evans’ elegant 18th-century house and Connemara pony stud farm is set in 18 acres of woodland and gardens overlooking Bruckless Bay - an ideal place for people who enjoy quiet countryside and pursuits like walking, horse-riding and fishing.


It is a lovely place to stay and the two acre gardens are open to the public at certain times, as part of the Donegal Garden Trail (www.donegalgardentrail.com); they reach down to the foreshore and include some beautiful mature beech trees that were planted when the house was built. The gardens are not too formal but thoughtfully designed, constantly developing and well-maintained - Joan is a Founder Member of the Donegal Garden Society www.donegalgardensociety.net.


Inside, family furniture collected through a Hong Kong connection adds an unexpected dimension to elegant reception rooms that have views over the front lawns towards the sea, and the generous, comfortably furnished bedrooms.


Accommodation includes two single rooms and there is a shared bathroom; although the house is large, the guest bedrooms are close together, so the rooms sharing a bathroom are ideal for a family or a group travelling together.


Home-produced eggs are a treat at breakfast, which is the only meal served - guests are directed to local restaurants in the evening.


Self-catering accommodation is also available all year, in a two-bedroomed gate lodge.

Rooms 4 (2 en-suite, 2 single, all no-smoking) B&B €60pps, no ss. Weekly rates also offered. Garden, equestrian, walking, fishing. Pets permitted in certain areas (stay in kennel). Closed 1 Oct-31 Mar. Amex, MasterCard, Visa. abbreviations
