Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to drive to the Beach?

    Aughris Beach

    Aughris Beach

    No, it is just 2 minutes walk to the nice little sandy beach that is between the Beach House and the Beach Bar.

    Some people like to drive the 5kms to Dunmoran Strand, others walk between the two beaches.

  • Will the house be warm when we arrive in Winter?

    Lovely bright and spacious sitting room cum dining room.

    We light the open fire and provide some fuel for our winter guests, in addition to have the oil heating on for you.


    Yes, when the weather is chilly we have the oil heating on timer so that it is on at your expected arrival time. In colder weather we also light the stove and the open fire in advance of your arrival. It seems to be what our guests like most.  Electric blankets are also provided for your comfort.


  • Do we have to arrive at a set time?

    No, there is a keysafe at the front door, and we will email or text you with the code so that you can arrive at any time. We like an estimated time of arrival though so that we can have heating / fire / stove set for you.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes pets are welcome. There are tiles / hardwood floors though out so we don’t mind dogs downstairs. Dogs themselves love the space, the garden and the walks at the beach. We don’t allow them in bedrooms though.

  • Is the Beach Bar near enough to walk to it?

    Beach Bar Pub/Restaurant 5 mins walkAbsolutely, it is just 5 minutes. And what a lovely scenic walk across to the pub, just enough sea air to give you an appetite! Another option is to drive around to the pub and leave the car if you have a few too many!  In warm weather you are advised to book a table in advance as it can be very busy – contact details at house.

    From June to September inclusive it is open daily, weekends only for the rest of the year.  Last orders 8pm.
