The Donegal region
Donegal is located in the north west corner of Ireland. It's a county that boasts a raw natural beauty with its jagged coastline, blanket bogs, mountains, cliffs, lakes and stunning golden beaches. It also has two inhabited offshore islands (Aranmore and Tory Island), a national park and lots of historical attractions.
County Donegal is brimming with things to see and do. It's a haven for outdoor activities so take the time to enjoy a round of golf, a spot of fishing, hiking, horseriding or surfing. Hire a car and take to the Donegal roads, as this is the best way to explore this fascinating county. There are lots of driving routes in County Donegal with the most popular probably being Inishowen, which is a scenic drive around the Inishowen peninsula taking in Malin Point - Ireland's most northerly point.
Popular attractions to look out for on your travels include Glenveagh National Park - a nature reserve with 40,873 acres of woodland, glens, gardens and a 19th century castle. The Slieve League Cliffs are an exciting experience especially if you take the 8km drive along its hairpin bends as they are said to be the highest cliff face in Europe! Or you could also visit Lough Derg - a popular place of pilgrimage, where St.Patrick is said to have stayed in a cave during his time as a missionary in Ireland.

"A superb house in a truly stunning location"
A very warm, comfortable and well appointed house. Owners were extremely helpful - we appreciated the welcome food hamper on arrival after a long journey. The views across the bay were breathtaking even when it rained. To have rafts of Eider Ducks and flocks of Brent Geese literally outside the window was a most exciting bonus. As we were primarily over for our daughter's wedding, the main bedroom was ideal for the bride to prepare for the big day. We thoroughly enjoyed daily visits to walk on Lagg beach (5 Fingers Strand). We would highly recommend this house if you want home from home comfort in a quiet beautiful location.

"Absolutely perfect - house, location, views and attention to detail - loved it all"
We have stayed in a various cottages in Ireland over the last few years but this is by far the best. Two of us and our dogs ( plus an overnight stay by my visiting parents - we thought we might have to throw them out - they loved it so much). The cottage is so well equipped - the attention to detail is excellent, they have thought of eveything. The dogs could get straight down to the pebble beach from the front door and the gorgeous Five Finger Strand beach is only 5 minutes drive away. Every room is really well decorated and the views are STUNNING !. Pay a visit to Malin Head point while you are there - and get a Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows from the very clever man with the Coffee/Deli van in the Car Park - its an expereince not to be missed! Can't recommend this cottage enough - if I win the Lottery I am gonna make the owners an offer !! A real gem.
