    “The accommodation was spot on, quirky, clean and in a great location.”

    15 minutes to Donegal and 15 minutes to killybegs.

    15 minutes to Donegal and 15 minutes to killybegs. Very close to local beaches, of which we found many, the dog was very pleased with that!!!! The local people were very friendly too, especially in Mac's bar just a minute walk from property. We will definitely be coming back to Dunkineely soon. Thank you Anita Darren, Michelle and Tara the dog ☘

The property

This charming detached cottage is nestled in the heart of Dunkineely village in County Donegal.

Perfect for couples or small families, this delightful cottage lies on the Wild Atlantic Way and has been tastefully and carefully decorated to offer guests both comfort and style whilst exploring this stunning part of Ireland.

The cottage lies within a minute’s walk of the local shop and pub and boasts a traditional layout with a well-equipped, fitted kitchen and dining area on the ground floor, along with a cosy sitting room, where you can curl up with a hot drink and rest those aching muscles.

Upstairs, three comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom complete the accommodation.

Guests can enjoy a secluded and sheltered rear garden complete with a patio area, where you can dine alfresco, or simply sit out and enjoy the sunshine.

The village of Dunkineely lies between the popular town of Donegal and the town of Killybegs, Ireland’s premier fishing port.

The village lies on the famous Wild Atlantic Way which is a coastal driving route stretching from Malin Head in Donegal right to Mizen Head in County Cork.

The route encompasses everything that is spectacular about the west coast of Ireland, stunning seascapes, sandy beaches, and pretty seaside villages; the route is at the top of most visitors’ bucket lists.

Dunkineely lies at the head of the St John’s Point Peninsula which stretches out into the Atlantic.

The peninsula is home to Coral Beach with its crystal clear waters for diving and swimming, not to mention views that will take your breath away; it's certainly a must see whilst in the area.

Other attractions within easy reach include the Slieve League sea cliffs, Mount Errigal, Glenveagh National Park and the charming town of Ardara.

A lovely cottage in an area of outstanding scenery.
