    “Lovely family home”
    This is a lovely family home, just like you have arrived at your friends house. Plenty of space for the the family. Comfy bedrooms and a large kitchen. Very clean and tidy. Personal touches with the paintings add character. Quiet area close to town. The owner was wonderful to deal with. We really enjoyed our stay!

The property

A traditional and homely detached cottage situated on a quiet development, within walking distance of Donegal Town.

This welcoming cottage is an ideal base for families or groups of friends who wish to explore this wonderful part of the Emerald Isle.

Inside this delightful cottage are four comfortable bedrooms, including two that are on the ground floor and the bathroom is on this floor too.

The kitchen is well equipped for all your culinary needs and after you’ve enjoyed a warming meal, you can relax in front of the open fire in the cosy sitting room.

On a sunny day, why not venture outside and enjoy a refreshing drink on the lawned garden, from where views of a sports track can be seen?

The busy market town of Donegal dates back to the 17th century and is home to a castle, shops, restaurants and pubs, where you can enjoy a pint and traditional music.

Within reach is the Blue Flag beach at Murvagh and this area of Donegal offers superb fishing in nearby rivers and lakes.

Alternatively, if golf’s your game than head to Donegal Golf Club or Murvagh Links Course to practice your swing.

Also in the area is the sandy beach at Rossnowlagh, which is backed by wonderful cliff views of the Slieve League, and within driving distance are the superb Glenveagh National Park and Malin Head.

An excellent touring base for exploring the whole of County Donegal.

About the location


Ballyshannon 14 miles; Bundoran 18 miles; Glenveagh National Park 40 miles.

The bustling market town of Donegal Town is situated in the south of the county at the point where the River Eske flows into Donegal Bay. Rich in history, the town was founded as a result of the 17th century Ulster Plantation planned around the Donegal Diamond, and is home to Donegal Castle and Murvagh Beach. The area is fantastic for fishing, with numerous suitable rivers and lakes available. For golfers, Donegal Golf Club and Murvagh Links Course provide a great game against a stunning backdrop. The dramatic sandy beach at Rossnowlagh is backed by wonderful cliff views of Slieve League, and is framed by the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, making a wonderful day out. For a great taste of the lovely Irish scenery, enjoy a drive along the Glengesh Pass, while Slieve League, Glenveagh National Park and Castle and Malin Head are all worth a visit, or enjoy Donegal Festival in July or the Taste of Donegal Food Festival in Late August.
