Great home / great location/ great host
This holiday home is perfect. The host was so welcoming and on hand for anything you need. The location is perfect. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, beach. The home itself has everything you would need and a swing set for the children which was a hit! The home is well maintained and spacious yet cosy. We are talking about returning already. Considering holidaying in our own country each year instead of abroad after our lovely stay here. Thank you

It was great
The White Strand Beach house was great. It was clean and everything we could ask for. It is close to the beach, parks for the kids, the town and bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend it. We did not get a chance to meet Anita, but she was very helpful and was able to provide us with the rental at the very last minute. I would go back there. Thanks Anita.

Comfortable and relaxed stay
This was our second time staying at the White Strand Beach House Buncrana. Anita the owner was lovely, she took the time, had a fire burning on our arrival which added to the cosiness of the bungalow. The house was very clean and tidy each bedroom had plenty of storage space and the bedding was lovely and fresh! Anita lives just next door to the bungalow and was at hand if we needed anything! although she didn't make her presence visible which allowed us plenty of privacy. Parking was great and we were allowed to bring our Samoyed who loved sitting outside the house which was enclosed by a large gate for safety measures. The house was situated minutes from a few hotels, eating places and pubs which saved on taxi fares. The house was only minutes from the beach which was very clean and sandy. I would definitely book this accommodation again.

Very comfortable beds and lovely bedding. Towels also provided. Lights in dining room and sitting room very dim and heating quite expensive. Welcome bottle of wine & mince pies were a nice touch. Good value for money.

About the neighbourhood
Buncrana Town and nearby surrounding areas have so much to offer for travellers. The local scenic beauty is most definitely a huge attraction. Sandy beaches, numerous viewpoints from rolling hills, cliffs and mountains. An ideal way to enjoy the scenic beauty of this area is by taking the 'Inishowen 100' route plan by the local tourist industry which shows off Inishowens best features throughout a 100km journey. The nature of the local people is welcoming and warming. People here have a genuine and caring interest in other people and this is a most unique and pleasant experience for travellers from largely populated areas to sample. A relaxing holiday in the countryside is what you will get yet there are cities with large populations as nearby as 20 minutes drive.
