Donegal holiday homes with direct access to sandy beach

Located in: Sheephaven Bay
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 ones 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 have recently undergone extensive refurbishments and now boast cosy wood burning stoves, SMART TV’s, comfortable couches, new curtains, and best of all – 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.

A certain number of Villas have been designated “pet-friendly” so all the family can go away together!  No need to leave the dog behind this summer. There is an additional charge of €30.00 per pet payable onsite and you must mention at the time of booking that you will be bringing your dog.

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 is featured in our Coastal Holiday Resorts Ireland Collection


Please note that an energy charge of €8.00 per day must be paid at the time of booking.

You are also required to give a security deposit of €200 on arrival onsite, this is fully refundable provided the supervisor is happy that the terms and conditions have been complied with.


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.
