Bruckless House

Bruckless House, the home of the Evans family, is an attractive 18th century Classical house. Listed nationally as a protected building, it has a traditional cobbled farmyard and is set in 18 acres of parkland. Bruckless House borders Bruckless Bay, and has a spacious informal award-winning garden of the Robinsonian kind, which features in the Donegal Garden Trail and in guides to Irish gardens.

There is mature woodland around the House and which is carefully developed and protected. Connemara ponies are bred here and can be seen in the parkland and grazing down to the shore-line.

From Bruckless House the visitor can explore the many interesting and significant local archaeological sites or simply enjoy some of the most beautiful and unspoilt Atlantic Coastline. Sea angling, shore diving and horseback riding in the immediate vicinity. Bruckless House is a suitable base to explore Slieve League (the highest sea cliffs in Europe) and Glenveigh National Park. There are two golf courses within easy reach, as well as several excellent restaurants. Free WiFi for all guests.

Bruckless House is located 18 kms west of Donegal Town on the N56 main road to Killybegs. Having travelled through Dunkineely and passed the Bruckless village nameplate, ours is the first driveway on the left immediately off the road.
