  • Description

    Description

    I am a retired medical practitioner from Scotland and have lived in this new house and smallholding for the past six years. Polytunnel gardening, beekeeping, exploring the history and geography of the area, take up most of my time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They would acquire basic polytunnel gardening skills, an appreciation of beekeeping if interested, experience of working on an organic smallholding in a remote and rural Gaeltacht community with access to folk music, and an Irish language centre,
    The smallholding is in Dunlewey Donegal, Ireland, located among the Deryveagh Mountains overlooking Lough Nacung, at the foot of Errigal Mountain and a short walk from the Poison Glen.
    Glenveigh Castle and National Park are nearby.
    Famous historical and archeological sites in the vicinity.
    Excellent hill walking opportunities abound.
    Kayaking, cycling, golfing, horse riding, and fishing are all easily available.
    The Dunlewey Cultural Centre is less than five minutes walk away with historical video presentations, and boat trips on Dunlewey Lough. There is a theatre, restaurant, bookshop and gift shop within the Dunlewey Centre.
    Boat trips to the offshore islands of Arranmore, Tory, and Gola are all short distances away.
