Location description from owner

The County Donegal region


You could spend weeks losing yourself in wild and woolly Donegal. The county's stark beauty captivates you and, over time, seeps down to your core. Tortuous country roads skirt stark mountains, rugged sea cliffs, craggy peninsulas, sheep-studded pastures, pristine sands, icy streams and horizons carpeted with bog and heather. Reaching up to the island's northernmost point, the county seems eternally braced to hold its own on its own.
Due to its isolation, Ireland's second-largest county (only Cork is larger) feels like its own country. Donegal was always a stubbornly independent land, largely ignored by those in Dublin's distant driving seat.
The Donegal experience is largely about weather, for here there's no need to set sail to brave the sea – the sea charges ashore and its mists ride stiff winds over fields and into the towns. Storms arrive unannounced, and just as abruptly break into brilliant sunshine, transforming the blue and grey into sparkling greenery. When the weather is kind, Donegal's better beaches and scenery are a match for any throughout Europe, and make perfect destinations for a getaway. Once you've attained the proper come-what-may attitude, you'll know you've been tamed by this uncompromising land.

Culdaff

Cavanagh's Cottage is located in Tremore Gleneely and sits on the Inishowen Peninsula in the northeast of County Donegal which is perhaps the great overlooked treasure of the Irish landscape, offering a diverse and visually exciting terrain, where the views usually encompass the waters of the loughs or the Atlantic waves. Virtually every aspect of the landscape is superb – the beaches (especially Kinnego Bay, Culdaff, Tullagh and Pollan), the towering headland bluffs (Malin, Inishowen, Gleneely,Dunaff and Dunree) and the central mountain range, with towering Slieve Snaght at the middle of it all.
The peninsula derives its name from Eoghán, who was made First Lord of the island by his father Niall, High King of Ireland. Phases of the peninsula's history before and after Eoghán have left a legacy of fine antiquities, and visitors are most welcome at the many fort sites among the county which host the beautiful early Christian crosses.

“Fantastic!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2017

We stayed in the cottage over New Year for two nights and had the best stay! The whole booking process was so easy, Hughie was more than happy to answer any questions we had and sent directions prior to our arrival, which were spot on and we found our way there easily. I believe Marion had been to the property before we arrived to turn on the heating so it was warm and cosy when we got there, however we didn't meet her while we were there as we got delayed on our way up, but she told us to call should we need anything. Absolutely everything was provided that we might need. The kitchen was well equipped with crockery, pots and pans, cutlery and glass wear. There were plenty of clean towels and toilet rolls, as well as extra bedding in the cupboard. The only thing you need to bring is yourselves and food/drink. There is also a folder in the living room full of restaurants and bars, and also takeaways should you wish to order anything in. The bedrooms were all a great size and the beds were so comfortable and cosy! We really enjoyed chilling out in the living room infront of the fire having a few drinks. Fire wood, coal and turf is also all provided during your stay which was a lovely touch. We had a fantastic stay and really hope to visit again in the near future! Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable and comfortable.

“Old and new with a contemporary twist ! Loved the cottage and the location!”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2016

We spent a lovely relaxing week at Cavanaghs cottage during September ,Myself and my wife plus two young children under five and our pet dog ! The cottage was such a lovely space for us as a family and found it child and pet friendly, the owner supplied child gates and fire guards child seats, cot etc! Which was so appreciated as we hate loading everything into our car. The area has stunning beaches beautiful walks and great food , coming back to an open turf fire made my day, beautifully restored well done !

That's very nice of you ! Thank you

“Wonderful cottage stay in rural Donegal”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2014

I booked Cavenagh's cottage for myself and my bridal party to get ready on the morning of my wedding. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived......the fire was lit and the bubbly was chilled. Hughie was a pleasure to deal with and Marion was more than helpful with any queries we had during our stay. It was the perfect location - rural, peaceful, traditional and great views from the deck. The cottage itself is comfortable and cosy, especially with a roaring fire on in the evenings. We absolutely loved Cavenagh's cottage and would highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be back! Thanks Hughie. :-)

Thanks again hughie & claire !
