Description

OFFICIAL BOOKING AGENTS

Nestled between the two Donegal villages of Creeslough and Carrigart is the hidden gem of Donegal Boardwalk Resort. In all there are 27 premium villas spread amongst 3 small cul de sacs. Each horseshoe-shaped cluster contains a mix of 9 detached and semi-detached stone clad villas. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the tarmacked surfaces are just perfect for children to ride their bikes or kick a ball. A drive leads from the Resort’s entrance off the road between Carrigart and Creeslough, past the three clusters of Villas and the first children’s playground directly down to the public carpark in front of the Boardwalk Bar & Restaurant, the all weather five-a-side, tennis, basketball court, the second children’s playground and of course, the gateway to the Boardwalk itself. A 25 minute easy stroll will bring you directly to the sandy beach and the Boardwalk’s surfaces are smooth and ideal for pushing prams and buggies or riding bikes. From the Villas to the beach is approximately a 5km round trip and a very enjoyable walk. There are two Villa types within the Resort.

The detached Villas are slightly larger and have 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people. They have an open plan kitchen and living room with a separate dining room area in the adjoining sun room. Two of the bedrooms are located downstairs – one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, along with the main family bathroom with shower over bath. Upstairs is the third and master bedroom with ensuite with shower and there is large gallery area which looks down over the living space below.
 
The semi-detached Villas also sleep up to 6 people in three bedrooms but these houses have two double bedrooms and a third bedroom with bunk beds (ideal for families with children). All bedrooms are located upstairs. There is a family bathroom with a shower over bath and the master double bedroom has an ensuite with shower. There is also a guest toilet downstairs. The downstairs living areas in the semi-detached villas are roomier than in the detached.
 
The sitting rooms in all the Villas feature cosy wood burning stoves, SMART TV’s and comfortable couches. We also offer free WIFI to all guests! 
 
There is a partially fenced decked area at each of the Villas with patio furniture and all around the Villas is surrounded by grassy areas.
 
This is a Resort that has been well thought out and planned with your needs in mind. In fact you need never leave the Resort during your stay if you come with your groceries at the start!

DONEGAL BOARDWALK RESORT

Located on the beautiful coast of Donegal in the North West of Ireland, the Resort comprises some 188 acres of land with extensive sea frontage and golden gently sloping sandy beaches. Despite its seemingly remote location, Donegal Boardwalk Resort is easily accessible within a 1-hour drive from Derry and just over a 2-hour drive from Belfast.  Dublin can be reached in about a three-and-a-half hour drive time. Donegal is now well recognised as a destination for a range of activities including golf (three championship links courses in relative close proximity), equestrian, hiking, angling and watersports.

THE BEACH

The beaches close to the Resort are perfect for a stroll but please be aware that some areas of the sand can be soft when the tide goes out and care should be taken at all times.

Hooked at Donegal Boardwalk offers both a bar and restaurant.  For bookings and enquiries call 087 7125175 (+353 87 7125175). Please note Hooked will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and St Stephens Day and closes seasonally for the month of January. During non-peak periods, Hooked Restaurant may be closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  For clarification on this please feel free to call them direct on 087 7125175.

Spotlessly Clean

"A very nice helpful guy provided meet and greet and showed us how to work everything. House was tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean and lovely and warm on arrival. Loved the downstairs layout as it was perfect for mingling and very spacious. Very good wifi. Entire site is pristine with beautifully manicured lawns. Excellent restaurant onsite with well-trained staff. Easy boardwalk access to beach and lovely 3km walk into Downings."
