On the rugged Inishowen Peninsula you can enjoy the great outdoors – you can go walking or hillwalking, swimming in the sea (which is surprisingly warm due to the Gulf Stream), sailing, deep-sea and fresh water fishing, horse riding, surfing, mountain climbing, cycling, driving, painting and of course golf.

Our house is on a beautiful peninsula called Inishowen in Co. Donegal at the very top of Ireland. Inishowen is very scenic and possesses such a range of sights and attractions that it is often referred to as "Ireland in miniature". The scenery is really majestic - magnificent mountain ranges, rolling hills and never ending stretches of deserted sandy beaches on the North Atlantic coast. We live just 1km from Malin village and the ocean. We are minutes from some of the most spectacular and beautiful beaches in Ireland. We are 10km from Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point, from where the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland can be seen on a clear day. We are looking for FLORIDA only, near some of the parks.

We are both university-educated professionals, one has a Decorate in Education, the other an MSc. in Social Science, one recently retired from the education sector and the other working in management in the non-profit sector. As we live in a rural area, we love going on city breaks, we love exploring places that are not full of tourists, we like amazing architecture, interesting coffee shops, local restaurants, guided walking tours and train travel. In the evenings we like to relax with good food, wine, books, music and films.
