The property

A lovely detached cottage, situated on the outskirts of Kilcar in County Donegal.

This inviting Kilcar cottage provides contemporary, yet homely accommodation, that’s the perfect choice for couples and small groups.

With two comfy bedrooms and a living room benefiting from a roaring open fire, the ideal accompaniment after a long day exploring the sights, this Kilcar cottage is a cosy retreat for a relaxing holiday.

The village of Kilcar is just a short stroll away, featuring a variety of shops and pubs where a warm welcome is assured, and regular evenings of traditional music offer the craic at its most authentic!

Just a few miles away is the impressive Muckross Head with two unspoilt beaches, where you’ll find safe swimming facilities, along with rock climbing and surfing for the more adventurous.

For those who prefer a slower pace, you can simply stroll the miles of golden sands with just the sound of the sea for company; what better way to unwind?

Kilcar is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside that comes to an abrupt end at the imposing sea cliffs of Slieve League, the highest of their kind in Europe.

Why not take an invigorating stroll along the top towards Glencolumbkille, before stopping for a pint of the black stuff or some freshly caught seafood?

The town of Killybegs is nearby, and is known as Ireland’s premier fishing spot with many restaurants and stalls offering fantastic produce.

Further afield, the towns of Bundoran and Ardara offer a further taste of Ireland’s culture, so book this Kilcar cottage today and start planning your next adventure in the wonderful west of Ireland.
