Directions

Here are the directions to our Artists View, Sandhill, Portnablagh, Co. Donegal

If you are using Sat Nav, navigate for Dunfanghy. It is an easy enough route to Dunfanghy – from Belfast, M2 towards Derry and on to Letterkenny.

At Letterkenny you will pick up signs for Dunfanaghy – there are plenty of these, taking you along the N56 past Moutain Top, through Kilmacrenan, Creeslough and finally you will 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.

At the beginning of this straight there is a left turn signposted “SANDHILL” – turn left here.

1. Look for the sign for Sandhill and turn left off the N56.

Hope this makes sense – I am over-complicating a fairly easy route, but some people do struggle to find the house, so I thought I would try the photographs.

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