Proceeding towards Dunfanaghy from the Portnablagh direction turn left into Ramonaghan Lane (a short distance before the Golf Club on the right). Continue to the top of the brae (c.600 – 700 metres) turning right at a recently constructed roadside home with a stone porch next to a white cottage with black windowsills and red front door. Just past the grey gravel drive to the white cottage the drive to Sea View House is immediately after this with ranch fencing on either side of the drive which is overgrown and requires more gravel.

Dunfanaghy features a local hotel as well as a number of cafes, restaurants and bars, etc. Killahoey Beach is one of the finest in the county and just outside the village is the challenging 18 hole golf course. Letterkenny, the county`s principal town, is accessible in just over 30 minutes.
