Walking from the coach stop-off in Falcarragh

The Song House is 20 mins walk. At crossroads, take the southerly road signposted Muckish mountain and Glenveagh National Park. Song House is 1 mile up that road. Pass Maura’s house on left, a bright yellow/white chalet type bungalow. Road curves slightly to right, and drops down a little. Just round the bend you will see Song House , a long white traditional looking house, on left, next to road. Just after, road takes a sharp curve to left.

By Car

From Letterkenny, take N56 towards Dunfanaghy, then turn left onto R251 at Termon. Go over Muckish pass, and down the other side. You will start to see the sea and Falcarragh in the distance. Keep on same road for about 15 mins after the pass. At a fork in the road, keep to left, but you will see Song House, a long white house, set up on the hill ahead of you. 100 yards on, when the road takes a sharp turning to the right, Song House is directly after the bend, on the right.  Either park on the steep short drive, or you can also park opposite in a small layby.
