    “Wonderful and relaxing break”

    We had a fantastic week staying here in September. Our welcome by Thomas was outstanding, and everything (and more) that we needed for the week was provided in the cottage. The scenery is beautiful, although the weather was as unpredictable as ever in Donegal. We were hoping to have good weather for a bbq, to enjoy the outdoor seating area, but were not lucky enough. There are a couple of stunning beaches nearby, which our dog loved exploring. The nearest shop is in Malin town, which is far ...

    We had a fantastic week staying here in September. Our welcome by Thomas was outstanding, and everything (and more) that we needed for the week was provided in the cottage. The scenery is beautiful, although the weather was as unpredictable as ever in Donegal. We were hoping to have good weather for a bbq, to enjoy the outdoor seating area, but were not lucky enough. There are a couple of stunning beaches nearby, which our dog loved exploring. The nearest shop is in Malin town, which is far enough away to go for a pint of milk. We brought food with us, so didn't have any problems in this regard. The lane beside the cottage can be busy, so you need to keep an eye out if you have small children or pets. You can close the gates, although they are quite heavy to manuover. We will definitely be coming back to stay at Umgall again, as we had a brilliant time.

A walk around Malin Head is just over five miles and takes a little over two hours so why not stop off for a refreshing drink at Ireland’s most northerly pub and enjoy the views? Only a short drive away lies Balyliffin with a beautiful beach and two world-class championship links golf courses, while Inishowen has five golf courses set amongst stunning scenery. The Famine Village on Doagh Island near Ballyliffin is open all summer and attracts thousands of visitors.
