Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Nearest beach 0 km
  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

The house is a traditional two bedroom cottage that has been recently and lovingly restored. We wanted to retain the integrity and character of the cottage, so there are many traditional features and period furniture with some beautiful paintings and pottery. That said the cottage provides visitors with all modern comforts. This is particularly evident in the living room/sun room which has a charming 'beach feel' with its painted wood floor and high ceiling.

The cottage sits on an acre at the end of a peninsula and has stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. You can sit and watch waves breaking off the rocks or watch the most amazing sunsets from the large living room windows or the two patios (one stone patio, one large wooden deck). There is also a beautiful white sandy beach behind the house. The house has two small double bedrooms, and a king size sofa bed in the living room. There is an open fire in the kitchen and a wood/turf burning stove in the large living room that looks out to the sea (plenty of turf included). CHECK OUT THE GUEST BOOK (FURTHER DOWN ON THE SITE) WHICH IS UPDATED REGULARLY AND EVERY COMMENT WE GET IS INCLUDED.

The Donegal region

From this typical Donegal rugged, rural setting you have unspoilt views of the most dramatic coastal and mountain scenery. The surrounding beaches are exceptional and unspoilt.

There are amazing drives and walks from and around the house. It is a hill walker's paradise. The area is steeped in Irish culture, myth and music. An ideal location for those who enjoy hill walking, cycling or just relaxing.

Dungloe

Dungloe is a small but busy town with plenty of shops, supermarkets restaurants etc. Lots of opportunities to fish and boat owners have access to the bay and sea that surround the house.

"DeWorlding in Dondgal"

In June last year we took a week's break in Donegal, just 15mins drive from Dungloe. From Dungloe to the cottage is a raw rustic drive . Then in a spectacular vista you see the cottage backgroun… More

"Lovely location but overall standard of cottage is disappointing"

The owner is very friendly and helpful and the cottage is in a stunning location but the overall condition and standard is poor for the price charged. Kitchen was dirty and furnished with ancient grubby chairs, shower was a trickle of alternate freezing or scalding water, there are cracked windows and light sockets and the outdoor table/chairs are unusable due to the smell from the adjacent sewage tank. Despite assurances from the owner that ' towels are all there for you', our party of five were provided with 1 bath towel, 3 hand towels and 2 tiny guest towels between us! There is NO clothes storage space whatsoever apart from a couple of small wall hooks and not even enough space to put your bag down on the floor in one of the bedrooms. Lack of attention to the little details, such as doors that don't close properly, all of the games having missing bits and an iron but no ironing board(!) mean that your stay is spoiled. Yes there are stunning views, lovely friendly locals and plenty of peat for the fire but this cottage needs some updating and a good scrub.

I am really sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the cottage. The cottage is thoroughly cleaned before each guest arrives so I am very surprised to hear that you felt it was not clean. Regarding the furniture, the cottage is furnished with old and some antique pieces. I understand this is not to everyones taste. I apologise for not enough towels being there, the guest before you was a family member who took most of the towels home for landering not realising this would cause a problem. Once again i apologise if all was not up to standard.
