Directions to Artists View

I promise I'm making it sound way more complicated than it is! 


Set course for Dunfanghy

It's an easy enough route to Dunfanghy. From Belfast, M2 towards Derry and on to Letterkenny.

At Letterkenny you'll pick up plenty of signs for Dunfanaghy. These take you along the N56 past Moutain Top. Through Kilmacrenan, Creeslough. And finally you'll see the town signs for Portnablagh, and the sea in front of you.

The main road swings left (a right turn would take you down to Portnablagh harbour) and curves around until you come to the start of a straight section of road running into Dunfanaghy. Your Sat Nav is probably telling you that you have a mile and a bit to go.

Look for the sign for Sandhill.
Turn left off the N56.

Look for the Mass Rock with two bungalows above and behind it.

Artists View is the slightly higher one to the left.

Go past the steep driveway of the first property (Derek and Mavis’ place).

Next on your right is the way to Artist View. Look for the concrete road repair.

As soon as you make the sharp turn, you'll see the gable end of a bungalow up the hill in front of you. This is our place: Artists View!

You've arrived!

Admire the view. The Land Rover may be even out of the way!
