It’s been of those special weekends on Horn Head. Putting finishing touches to the garden before we reopen next week, meeting Eddie Doherty to get some new tweed for our new outdoor seating area, a lovely mention in @irishtimesnews and amazing spring weather @joanscales #madeindonegal #hornhead #govisitdonegal #breachouse #coolestplace #handwoventweed #wildatlanticway #irishdesign

When we decided to do gift vouchers for we wanted to something a little bit special. Luckily we found the wonderful Lynn Costello Erskine of @thepearinpaper , a Donegal based maker who shares our passion for all things local, sustainable and traditional. Using her restored letterpress dating from 1872, affectionately known as Florrie, Lynn has made these handprinted, environmentally friendly gift vouchers - simple but beautiful. Gift vouchers for the Breac.House experience are now available at

Isn't this a beautiful tree ? The hawthorn is a real gem in November when the berries are bursting ruby red and the leaves are gone. The lichen loves the pure, clean Atlantic air at the top of Horn Head, Donegal - where the strong winds bend the already gnarly branches. Tree Perfection #breachouse #visitdonegal #hornhead #tree

After the storm - we woke up this morning to a calmer day, thankful that our little corner of Ireland has been spared the worst. Thinking about those less fortunate, for whom the loss, damage and repairs will continue long after the storm has left the headlines. #breachouse #donegal #ophelia #hornhead #afterthestorm
