  • "House and all the facilities were first rate."

    Beaches are beautiful. Shame there weren’t restaurants etc open but that was Covid related. Had a super holiday here.

    We had the greatest week and will definitely revisit Lettermacaward and thats having spent time here during an unprecedented pandemic, Dooey beach the highlight but Shush, don't get that out there, keep it quiet!

  • "Just had a week with extended family staying in the two extremely well equipped cottages."

    Beautiful views all around the cottages that could be enjoyed from sitting room also. Photos actually don’t do it justice. Plenty of outdoor running around space and and were entertained by the stream running around the property and the sheep. Very close to a gorgeous off road dedicated cycle lane which brings you into Lettermacaward- this is currently being extended to Dungloe. Whole area is rich with pristine beaches, cute villages and even a waterfall to explore. Very accommodating and welcome hosts and overall one of the loveliest holidays I’ve had in Ireland. Donegal my new favourite county. Beidh muid ar ais!

  • "We took both the cottages on this site for an extended family and they were ideal for this."

    Both cottages were beautiful and were spotless. The house keeper Eileen had prepared them to the highest of standards and she herself was exceptionally pleasant and helpful.

  • "We had a fabulous vacation, rented the two houses for a family reunion, the location is excellent, houses are beautifully restored, and just rustic enough to know you are in a real thatched cottage."

    Would highly recommend to all. We actually loved that there was no wifi, a nice needed break from the real world.

The property

Lettermacaward 3 miles.

A short drive from the village of Dungloe in County Donegal brings you to this beautiful thatched cottage in the countryside, just 2.8 miles from the village of Lettermacaward.

This property has been painstakingly renovated to provide extremely comfortable and modern accommodation without losing its heritage charm.

Enjoy panoramic views across to the Trawenagh Bay from the comfort of the cosy leather sofas in the sun room, or warm up in front of the open fire in the more traditional sitting/snug room.

The kitchen too blends the modern with the traditional, being fully fitted yet retaining a Belfast sink, set in wooden worktops.

The bedrooms will suit families or two couples, having two double bedrooms, one of which is accessed through a third bedroom which contains two single beds.

From this base in the Lettermacaward area near Dungloe there is so much to do with the coast less than a mile away and the beautiful Donegal countryside on your doorstep.

Explore the many lakes that abound in The Rosses; delight in the iconic Errigal Mountain and Glenveagh National Park, or relax on the beautiful beaches for which Donegal is renowned.

Dungloe and Glenties, two busy local towns are a short drive away if you fancy a meal out, but Lettermacaward is not without its own attractions boasting two local pubs for a relaxing drink at the end of the day.

A charming cottage for whatever you wish to see and do in the area.

Note: This cottage can be booked with Ref. 10723, together they sleep 12.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
