The property

Donegal Town 4 miles.

A character stone cottage in the village of Drumboarty, 4 miles from Donegal Town in Southern County Donegal.

Situated in some lovely countryside, however within easy access of local towns, this cottage is an ideal place for families or groups of friends who wish to explore this part of the Emerald Isle.

This quiet cottage is all on the ground floor with four nicely-presented bedrooms as well as a family bathroom.

The sitting room is spacious with plenty of comfy sofas and a welcoming woodburning stove, making a great place to relax in front of after a full day out and about.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a dining area, making a great social space for preparing and enjoying some home-cooked meals.

To the outside of the cottage is a large lawned garden, making a good place for the kids to let off some steam, whilst enjoying the wonderful views of the Blue Stack Mountains in the distance.

In the immediate vicinity there is a host of walks and cycle paths close by and for the more energetic why not try some hill walking to the Blue Stack Mountains themselves.

A 30 minute drive takes you to the busy market town of Donegal which dates back to the 17th century and is home to a castle, shops, restaurants and pubs, where you can enjoy a pint and some 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.

Whatever you decide to do, Claire’s Cottage is a wonderful place to explore the whole of County Donegal at any time of the year.

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.
