The space

Come and stay with us in our ancient farmhouse, built originally in 1611, and passed down in our family for generations. Within easy distance of Londonderry which is City of Culture 2013, and its airport. Close to the Ulster American Folk Park, Grianan Fort and a hour's drive from Glenveagh Castle, not too from the Giant's Causeway and the beaches of the North Coast.
Excellent restaurants nearby in Lifford and Strabane.
We are also setting up a small museum to describe the unique history of the property. The house is set in beautiful Donegal farmland, and we also have a fishing lake,for coarse fishing.

The furniture and furnishings are in keeping with the historical nature of the property. We expect our guests to understand this before booking. There is a breakfast menu available, and we try to cater for special diets. Otherwise most of our guests enjoy a full Irish breakfast, cooked with local ingredients where possible. There is a guests' sitting room with television, a spacious dining room and large garden and farm. Rocky the dog is part of the family. Everyone enjoys tea and home-made cake on the house on arrival. You pay 35 Euros a night each, with children under 12 half price,sharing the parents' bedroom. Under fours are free,and we can supply a travel cot if required.

Irish hospitality at its best! It’s a treat to stay in such an old historic house. Mrs. McKean is a pro who has been doing this BnB business for years. Note to travellers, it’s a secluded place, so you won’t be having any late nights at the pub in this area.

If you have a real appreciation of antiques, add in family history, then a working farm, plus two gracious hosts, you will get a pretty good idea of what awaits you at Longvale Farm ! Can you tell we really loved Jean and Mervyn’s home !
