    Description

    Hi There
    I run a small Horse farm in the Hills of Donegal about 5 minute drive from the Bluestack Mountains, and 35 minute drive from Slieve League (largest cliffs in Europe) We are also only 5 minutes from the local beach which we often trek to on horseback.
    I am currently starting to build glamping type accommodations, so would love some help with converting old caravans and horseboxes etc.

    On your time off I can drop you to the local village where you can take a bus to Donegal Town (this is a heritage town where you can visit the Old Castle or take the waterbus out and maybe spot some dolphins and seals, you can also get a bus to just about anywhere, I will also provide a bicycle so you can cycle to the Bluestacks or to local areas. Donegal is also famous for its Surfing beaches.
