The property

Malin Head 2 miles.

The cottage is set directly on the coast overlooking the small harbour of Portronan and faces south west over the Atlantic which guarantees spectacular sunsets.

The area has rocky headlands, sea cliffs, sheltered coves and fabulous sandy beaches, the best of these are Five Finger Strand, Culdaff Beach and Pollin Beach at Ballyliffin.

A warm welcome greets you when you walk into this bright and airy cottage.

There is an open plan living room with a well-equipped kitchen, dining and seating areas.

If the weather permits, dining alfresco is also a possibility.

The micro climate of Malin Head makes it one of the sunniest parts of Ireland but there are also wild and wonderful winters to be enjoyed.

Watching and listening to the raging dark ocean on a winter's evening in front of the fire is quite magical.

There are four comfortable bedrooms to choose from, including two doubles on the ground floor, one with an en-suite and a separate bathroom.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a shower room.

There are four beaches within easy reach, Five Finger Strand, Culdaff Beach, Doagh Island and Pollin Beach.

Culdaff is the safest for bathing but all offer delightful walking opportunities.

The cottage is well placed to see the ever changing Donegal land and seascapes.

Dolphins often play just off the coast and the Aurora Borealis can be visible here.

Glasheedy Cottage is the perfect base for a restful or active holiday; beautiful walks, cycle routes, terrific golf, sea swimming, lively bars and fresh fish, this property has it all!
