The Province of Ulster region
The Townland of Teelin near the Village of Carrick is nestled in the foothills of Slieve League, and is the ideal escape from a fast paced lifestyle.
In the summer, there are regular festivals down at the pier, including the local boat races which are fiercely contested by rival villages. Carrick is on the route of the Tour of Donegal, and Tour of Ireland bike races, perfect to see national champions and pro's up close.
Slieve League backs onto the Atlantic ocean, and the cliffs of Bunglass are the second highest in Europe. It is 5km to the viewing platform, and a provides spectacular panoramic views.
There is a traditional Pub 500 metres away and a seasonal visitors centre for the cliffs of Bunglass.
Teelin itself is incredibly rugged, and feels the full force of the North Atlantic, so pack warm jumpers to stay cosy. However, because of the fresh air, on a sunny day it is absolutely glorious. Be prepared for all extremes of weather, rain or shine.
South-west Donegal is unspoilt by modern civilisation. The small local communities revolve around the farming and fishing industries, and are famously friendly.
Glencolumbkille Folk Village is 10km away, with its traditional stone cottages really gives an insight into the lives of the locals before 1950, when the first electricity was introduced.
Kilybegs is the closest small town, and was once the premier fishing port in Europe. You can source the catch of the day from a small white van on the edge of the Harbour.
Donegal Town, 45 minutes drive away is the centre of local tourism. It is a great place to explore the craft shops and Magee's, famous for Donegal Tweed clothing.
8km inland is Ardara, the home of famous playwright Brian Friel, nestled within deep valleys, it gives you a true sense of being at the mercy of the elements.
Bear Grylls described Donegal as "a forbidding coastline", and is at the elements of the weather. It is ruggedly beautiful and really does take your breath away.

"A perfect getaway"
This was my first visit to Ireland and Teelin did not disappoint. The perfect place to get away from busy city life, Teelin offers some of the best views I've ever seen. With Slieve League mountains behind the cottage and the pier, a stone throw away, I had plenty to explore.
There are so many scenic walks and beautiful beaches near the area, I really was spoilt for choice.
On the days I preferred to stay indoors to relax, the cottage served this purpose brilliantly. The beds are so comfortable, it was a struggle to leave sometimes. All of the rooms are clean, cosy and have all the necessary facilities you could want. Having a washing machine and dryer in the property was a lifesaver, as I had travelled with hand luggage only. The living room is especially cosy, with comfy sofas and a log fire to add to the charm of the cottage. The cottage has a rustic feel to it, with old barn style doors and chopped logs for the fire and large windows letting in tons of natural light, making it the perfect setting for a cosy break away. The views from the cottage speak for themselves, with mountain views from one side of the cottage and sea views from the other.
I left Teelin, feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and more importantly, relaxed. My skin and hair felt incredibly soft and healthy and I just felt like my mind had been cleared of the many stresses of everyday life. It was refreshing not to have my phone glued to my hand! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the cottage and am already planning my next visit!
