Creeslough Holiday Homes Donegal
Creeslough is situated at the foot of Muckish Mountain, near Sheephaven Bay in northwest Donegal. It is 10km south of Dunfanaghy and stands on high ground overlooking an inlet that runs in off Sheephaven. The small harbour at Portnablagh is a 10 min drive to the north.
The Irish word Creeslough means “The Belt of Lakes” – a reference to the many lakes that surround this charming village. The parish church, St Michael’s is notable for its architecture, being modelled on the nearby table mountain of Muckish.
Nearby attractions include: Doe Castle, a 16th century castle of the MacSuibhne clan, which has been restored during recent years. It is perhaps best known as the place to which Owen Roe O’Neill returned prior to the uprising of 1642.
Ards Forest Park contains some megalithic tombs and a Mass Rock and which is adjoined by a Franciscan Friary. It has an area of 4.8 square kilometres.
