Cathrine and Niall have created something special in Breac.House, way up on Horn Head, in the farthest, most northerly part of County Donegal.
The house is a peach in every way – setting; design; architecture; furnishings – but what is special about Breac.House is not just that it is open to visitors. It’s the fact that it is open to the county and its creative culture that makes it so unique.
In the house, everything pays tribute to the magical creativity of the county of Donegal, and the people who live and work here.
The house was designed by local architects – MacGabhann architects of Letterkenny – and built by local tradesmen. The stone is from Ardara, the granite from Fanad. The legendary local tweed maker, Eddie Doherty, made the throws for the beds and the sofa.
And then, when you stay, you eat the local foods, the foods of the county, delivered to your room at breakfast, and parcelled up for picnics.
Cathrine and Niall are aiming for a simple thing: to offer a truly authentic experience that is, first and foremost a truly authentic Donegal experience. Breac.House offers you the genius of place.
