Bruckless Rest

“Fine Country Living”

“A magnificent Victorian Dwelling nestled in walls built in 1860”

This unique and stylish Residence comprises a spacious En-Suite Master Bedroom, Cocktail Bar, Dining Room, Drawing-room, Kitchen, Patio and Garden. This unique and full of character property on the “Wild Atlantic Way” is the perfect retreat location for a Mid-Week or Weekend Getaway; or a secluded hideaway for an Executive.


Bruckless Rest adjoins a Traditional Thatched Donegal Cottage beautifully situated in a colourful Rose Garden (Cottage caters for 5 Guests) overlooking the Monastic Tower of Saint Conal. The tower pays tribute to Saint Conal our local Saint from the 6th Century and whose healing well is only 15 min walk away.

Bruckless Rest is superbly situated in the Centre of Bruckless Village just 18 km west of Donegal Town. It’s close proximity to Ireland’s Premier Fishing Port Killybegs (6 km away) where you can enjoy the hooked and cooked experience on offer from the local Fish Monger.

Just across the road from Bruckless Rest (2 min walk) we recommend “Barry’s” Spar Shop open daily 8am to 10pm where you can choose from a well stocked deli counter for tomorrow’s picnic or Al Fresco Lunch in our Secluded Garden. Just 3 minutes walk away, past the chapel, I recommend “Mary Murrin’s Bar and Restaurant” where a full à la carte is available. Seafood a speciality!


From Bruckless Rest you can explore our famous Appalachian Walking Routes which walk in the footsteps of Slí Conal and Slí Cholmcille. Hire Electric Bikes in Carrick and experience breathtaking views from Europe’s highest sea cliffs, Slieve League. Just 3 km away, Bruckless Pier has breathtaking views of Donegal Bay where the local fishermen will only be too happy to sell a freshly landed Lobster. The Pier itself inspired the Novel “The Family on Paradise Pier” by Dermot Bolger. (Copy available to read in the Drawing Room)
