    “Lovely home, comfortable and well decorated.”

    A great place for a family with three areas for seating. Good showers and plenty of hot water as well as a washer and dryer. A few wine glasses ,more pot lids and teaspoons would be useful. Good Tv reception. A peaceful secure setting but transport needed. ...

    A great place for a family with three areas for seating. Good showers and plenty of hot water as well as a washer and dryer. A few wine glasses ,more pot lids and teaspoons would be useful. Good Tv reception. A peaceful secure setting but transport needed. The original advertised listing is misleading and simple amendments would avoid disappointment to future visitors. There is no pub/ shop ‘< 1 mile’ from the house . The nearest one we found was a 35/40 minute walk or 5 minute drive in Dungloe and there are plenty there. The outside area has enclosed land but it was overgrown, boggy and very uneven.. no suitable for ball games and certainly not a ‘ lawn’ as described. This is a lovely area to visit and a comfortable place to stay.

The property

This warming, detached cottage sits comfortably on the ground floor and rests just outside Dungloe in Ireland.

Retaining many of its rustic, traditional features and enjoying a tranquil rural location, bring your friends and family together and explore all that this sublime region can offer.

Step into The Diamond through its original stable door and be welcomed into a snug sitting room, enhanced with old stone flooring and an enticing woodburning stove, a wonderfully cosy spot to deservedly put your feet up in.

A splendid family bathroom rests close by, as does a wonderfully bright sun room, providing an alternative relaxing space, should you seek some quiet time to unwind with the addition of pleasing countryside views.

Your tasty home-cooked meals can be enjoyed in the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, dominated by a fabulous old Rayburn, offering a range of high-quality appliances.

The three bedrooms here at The Diamond are all thoughtfully decorated to ensure a peaceful resting spot; one of the two king-size bedrooms benefits from a handy en-suite shower, while the twin bedroom offers additional sleeping, should a further guest wish to experience this countryside retreat.

Simply wander the lawns surrounding this delightful cottage, or take a seat with a drink of choice and appreciate the marvelous setting with the refreshing country air to top it all off.

A simple stroll brings you into Dungloe's centre, a market town offering a range of amenities.

There is also an attractive castle and the Donegal Railway Heritage Centre.

A wealth of inspiring scenery abounds the area; there are several picturesque walking spots, while the coastline is dotted with wonderful beaches and coves.

The area is excellent for keen fishers or golfers.

The Mary of Dungloe festival in August is something to enjoy as well as being the home of Daniel O'Donnell.

About the location


Arranmore Island 7.5 miles; Letterkenny 32 miles.

Up until 1762, entry into the town of Dungloe in Donegal was only possible via the stepping stones dotted over the river. Thankfully, now visitors from all over the world can take the much easier route over Donegal Bridge and enjoy this charming town in County Donegal with ease. Dungloe is known locally as 'The Capital of The Rosses', the name given to this region of the county. The town, which has become recognised as a centre for traditional Irish music, has a selection of shops, bars and eating places, as well as events taking place throughout the year, including the annual 'Mary from Dungloe' festival. A fisherman's paradise, the area has over 130 lakes and rivers and is renowned for its fishing and great sea angling, with several charter boats available in nearby Burtonport, from where diving can also be enjoyed. There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Arranmore and Rutland Island. Wonderful wildlife can be found in the bogs and reed beds, while golfers will love the variety of golf courses found in the surrounding area. With hills and mountains to explore, the dramatic coastline to enjoy and so much to see and do, this is sure to make the perfect base for your Donegal holiday.
