Madra Rua – Organic Accommodation

Located along the Wild Atlantic Way and overlooking the Trawbreaga Bay and the Isle of Doagh, Madra Rua is the perfect place to set up your base camp to explore the delights of the Inishowen peninsula and its wild scenic coastline, part of the North West Region of Ireland, the most northerly area in the country.

Madra Rua is another way of saying Sionnach (fox in Irish language) what recalls the original name of our townland of Ráth Sionnaigh (Rashenny) which means The Fox Fort.

Local Activities

Walking, cycling, watersports, beaches, fishing, music in local pubs, local festivals... There's always something going on, particularly at weekends and during summer festivals.
Cyclists are welcome and we have a spacious shed to keep your bicycles.

We can arrange activities for you or just advise on how best to enjoy your time. We can also lend you a bicycle (we've got two of them in our shed).
