Retreat Take refuge and slow downMore
A room in the view
A calm space, filled with luxurious natural materials and products from the surrounding area. Your own private terrace opening to the panoramic view of beach, mountain, lake and sea.
As soon as you book we start working to ensure that your stay will be unique and tailored to you. We can arrange activities for you or just advise on how best to enjoy your time. Our aim is to look after you in a way that you won’t even notice so that you can focus on enjoying yourself.
The lounge areas are available throughout the day for guests to read, relax, listen to music, play board games or simply sit at the fireplace and watch the weather changing.
What's more relaxing than breakfast in bed ? Silently delivered into a specially designed private hatch, breakfast is ready and waiting for you to enjoy at your own pace in the peace and quiet of your own room, on the terrace or in the garden.
Your morning tray will vary based on the season but will always include our own home-made bread, pastries, butter and yoghurt, together with local produce such as organic smoked salmon and seasonal fruit. For lunch, we've got our own backpack with homemade picnic goodies to keep you going during the day. Also, if you happen to be around the house during the day, you may be in luck if we're baking some treats!
Our little wood fired sauna in the garden is inspired by the ancient Irish ‘sweat houses ‘ which were once common in this region. It is designed for 2 and is entirely off-grid – using only stone, wood and water. It is a place to relax after your day’s adventures while looking at the surrounding countryside. We are delighted to have collaborated with local weavers, McNutts of Downings, to create our beautiful 100% Irish linen sauna towel - super soft and reflecting the beautiful colours of the plants and mountains visible from the sauna.
All of the quality materials used in Breac.House are natural, sustainable and, wherever possible, from the local area. We are lucky to have some of the finest stone, wool and crafts people on our doorstep, so you can experience the best in Irish design.
Our philosophy is to collaborate with local makers and designers, sourcing the best quality materials from the area. The plates, bowls, throws, in fact almost everything at Breac.House, is made with Irish materials by talented local crafts people as well as other Irish makers.
Muck ‘n’ Muffins
Breakfast is served on our beautiful, unique range of pottery designed and made for us by local sisters Deborah and Emma Moore, who run Muck ‘n’ Muffins pottery and coffee shop in Dunfanaghy village. Using clay from Inishowen, Co. Donegal, each piece has been handcrafted, painted and glazed with Breac.House guests in mind.
