A sPecialist retreat venue in dunfanaghy, co. donegal


Welcome to Sandhill House, an experiential getaway focused on health and wellness. The house is situated 1km from the vibrant village of Dunfanaghy, surrounded by the glorious landscape of Co. Donegal in Ireland and located on the Wild Atlantic Way. The house has ten bedrooms and is a centre of wellness, owned by Lucille Cassidy; a Physiotherapist and Pilates, Yoga and Qoya teacher. It is an ideal location for large group gatherings including health and wellness retreats, sport & outdoor pursuit weekends and corporate events . We aim to provide you with a sense of retreat, with an added touch of luxury and breathtaking ocean views.

Whatever the weather, you can gather around the fire in our cosy BBQ hut or relax in our hot tub with it’s glass roof to enjoy the amazing Donegal starry skies. To unwind further you can enjoy a massage in our treatment room or escape to one of the quiet spaces in the house and lose the inner chatter of a busy life and enjoy moments of silence and stillness. Our hope is that you will return home feeling nurtured, rested and restored after immersing yourself in the Sandhill Experience.
