Carrigart Holiday Homes Donegal
Situated as it is at the base of the Rosguill peninsula, in one of the more remote but most scenic parts of the country, the village provides services for a large hinterland, with a supermarket with banking facilities, a post office, a doctor’s surgery and a barracks manned part-time by An Garda Síochána.
Carrigart has a public park that borders the shoreline behind the houses on the main street. Designed by Angela Gallagher, it is maintained by the Tidy Towns Committee and has won several awards. Nearby attractions include Fanad Lighthouse – one of the Wild Atlantic Way’s Signature Points.
The village and its environs remain largely agricultural, relying heavily on passing trade and tourism during the summer months. The traditional seaside resort of Carrig Áirt is a picturesque village and the Victorian architecture adds to its unique character and charm.
In the sand hills between Carraig Airt and Na Dúnaibh (Downings) are prehistoric sites where Bronze Age objects have been found, and deep in the dunes there is small cluster of houses that were consumed by the changing sandscape many years ago
