The property

Fintown 1.8 miles.

A traditional, detached holiday cottage just outside the quiet village of Fintown overlooking the rugged County Donegal countryside.

Well-situated with fantastic views this property will make an excellent starting point for those looking to see what County Donegal has to offer.

All set on the ground floor there are three good-size bedrooms one of which is in a separate annexe with an en-suite basin and WC.

The main area in the cottage has an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area, perfect for keeping everyone together while dinner is being made and relaxing in front of the fire after a long day of exploring the north west of Ireland.

Alternatively, with the sun out, make the most of the good weather and relax in the garden with a cool refreshing drink and a good book, while the young ones run around in the garden and tire themselves out.

A short way down the road is Fintown, a charming little hamlet that will tend to your basic needs and is home to some great scenery should you wish to pull on your walking boots or go for a cycle.

A bit further afield, you have Glenveagh National Park (the second largest National Park in Ireland), where wild deer can be seen, or take a drive along part of the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way.

On the edge of Lough Fin you will find the small hamlet of Fintown which according to Irish mythology is named after Finngeal who drowned in the lough trying to save her wounded brother Feargamhain. Below the Aghla and Screig mountains the Lough itself is about 3 miles long and is fed by the River Finn which is well known for its salmon fishing. Also within reach is the Wild Atlantic way and a number of lively towns such as Dungloe, Glenties, Ardara, Ballybofey and Letterkenny for you to explore and immerse yourself in the local Irish culture.
