The Area

The Inishowen Peninsula is part of the Wild Atlantic Way and home of Malin Head, Ireland’s most northerly point. It is surrounded by often empty beaches – Culdaff and Carrowmena are three miles away, with the magnificent Five Finger Strand and Kinnego Bay are both a short drive. The area is a haven for wild life watchers, walkers and anglers and boasts four golf courses. For those interested in history, there are megalithic tombs, stone circles, ring forts, the Maritime Museum & Planetarium, Cairn Visitor Centre, Doagh Famine Village and Dunree Military Museum.

Dusty’s Place offers a great base to explore the North West with the Giant’s CausewayBushmills Distillery and Royal Portrush golf course all around an hour’s drive. The City of Derry offers tours of its historic walls, theatre, music and regular festivals. Co. Donegal’s Glenveagh National Park offers 16,000 hectares with castle, walled garden and woodland walks but dogs must be kept on a leads.

Inishowen boasts a number of well known bars and restaurants: Here is a couple to get you started: McGrorys Culdaff, Kealys Seafood Bar, Harrys Bar and Restaurant, The Red Door Country House and Rosato’s Bar and Restaurant.

There is loads to do on land and at sea:



  • Important announcement

    Due to a change in our circumstances we’ve had to make the sad decision to sell our lovely Dusty’s Place. It wasn’t an easy decision to make and we regret that it won’t be available as a dog friendly holiday let next year.

    As many of you know, we set up Dusty’s Place because we had become so frustrated trying to find secure dog friendly accommodation that welcomed a family of dogs, not just ‘one small dog.’ We have really enjoyed sharing our home with hundreds of happy dogs and their owners over the past 15 years and we are proud of the fact that we have been able to help make so many enjoyable holiday memories.

    Every year we have been delighted to receive many positive comments about Dusty’s Place and the surrounding area. We also loved welcoming so many returning guests.

    So if you would like the chance to extend your holiday to a forever home in your own doggy paradise please have a look at the listing

    It would make us so happy to know that the home we loved so much could give another family as much pleasure.

    Eileen, Fidelma, Woody, JJ, & Jess
