    Hi folks. Tyrone girl here. Currently living in Cheshire with British husband and three young kids. Considering a move back home as we've pretty much had it with England. Wanting a quieter way of life, near the beach but also able to drive to Derry/Tyrone when we want to visit family. Can anyone recommend anywhere. Have seen some amazing houses in Derrybeg /Dunfanaghy but worry some are just gaeltacht and my Irish is pretty poor. Would love to learn and have the kids learn though. Good schools and a sense of community would be lovely.

    What about the North Inishowen area, around Carn, Culdaff, Malin?

    Couple of top quality beaches nearby, 30min drive to Derry, beautiful part of the world as well and house prices not too bad (but make sure you don't buy a Mica house).

    Or even out round Redcastle, Greencastle, Moville.

    Only thing is that these would be slightly further away from Tyrone than you may be thinking about?

    Sure half of Belfast lives in Dunfanaghy and not a word of Irish between them. I wouldn't worry about that. Further west to Falcarragh and beyond is Gaeltacht, but Dunfanaghy is not really.

    Rathmullan/Ramelton area is quite nice also, close enough to Letterkenny and on to Derry or Strabane too.

    Proximity to Letterkenny is generally a must for jobs etc
