Burt Holiday Homes Donegal

Located at the base of the Inishowen Peninsula, Burt is a parish and is part the Parish of Fahan. This is an area that holds a lot of history with the ancient Grianán of Aileach stone fort that dates back to 1700BC.

On a clear day it is possible to see the hills of seven counties of Ireland from this view. From Grianán hill you can see the extent of the reclaimed land at Inch Level which was enclosed by three embankments in 1856.

Attractions in the area include Doagh Island Famine Village and Oakfield Park as well as Historic Walled City of Derry

The Burt Roman Catholic Chapel on N13 (European award winning design) was modelled after the Grianán of Aileach. The Presbyterian congregation nearby dates from 1673 but the present church was built in 1896.

Travellers along the main N13 road from Derry to Letterkenny also see the remains of the Burt Distillery with its stone chimney in use during the 18th and 19th centuries at Bohillion.
