Influenced by the surrounding landscape, Breac.House combines place, people and heritage to create a unique experience. Positioned on Donegal’s Horn Head peninsula, the house is nestled comfortably in its position amongst the heather and looks out onto the Atlantic and spectacular Derryveagh Mountains. The stay has been meticulously considered to represent the very best that Donegal has to offer. Built by local craftspeople, the legacy of the area is prevalent in the textured designs, materials and surfaces as you move from one room to the next.
