Cottage / 2 bedrooms / sleeps 4
This traditional cottage, dating from the 1800s was bought in very poor condition and has been completely and lovingly restored to the highest standards. It was re- thatched by a master thatcher in 2012 and sits in nearly seven acres running down to its own river.
There are two bedrooms, one with a king size (5ft) bed based on a traditional Irish style dating from 1918 and a twin room both with pocket sprung mattress, walnut floors and beautiful, fine quality linen. The bathroom is tiled in pale pink marble, with underfloor heating, 8' drenching shower, free standing slipper bath and heated towel rail.
Robes and fluffy towels are provided. The kitchen/living room has an open fire, two arm chairs, a handmade table and four chairs and a gorgeous pink and oak dresser. There are top end appliances including a Rangemaster cooker, with ceramic hob and Miele washing machine and dishwasher.
The cottage has no immediate houses built around it, offering peace and seclusion but is not remote, it's located 1.5 miles from the fishing port of Killybegs and around ten minutes from the Heritage town of Ardara.
Due to the unreliability of the Internet Service provision PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO WIFI PROVIDED. Guests requiring internet service in a cottage during their holiday should therefore not book. We do not provide a landline as there is no way of tracing and paying calls.

Thank you so much for a super duper time at Honey Cottage. We have loved exploring Donegal and it was great to come back to the cottage and tuck into the delicious jam and scones by the fire. The brilliantly equipped kitchen meant we could spend our evenings cooking and relaxing.

Well what can I say?? From our first glance of Honey Cottage's immaculate thatch, our arrival felt like "Christmas morning". Never in my wildest dreams did I think a Cottage like this existed! Honey Cottage is really, really special. All our "boxes" were ticked - and more!! Amanda - you are a genius. As I am sitting here writing - the rain is lashing down and here we are - warm as toast in the pure comfort that is Honey Cottage. The surrounding area is beautiful and the locals are just so friendly. We went swimming on Tuesday morning (in Ireland??) and it was just bliss. Thank you Amanda for sharing your Cottage with us. On dark, cold winter nights I will be transported back to the bliss that is Honey Cottage for years to come in my dreams.

We have had a wonderful week in Honey Cottage, old and very quaint with all the mod cons!! Good weather except for one rainy day which we spent exploring the town of Donegal Donegal has the most gorgeous beaches if you see a "brown sign" saying "Tara"-beach follow that sign, you will eventually come to an almost deserted golden sand beach. Malin Bay, Portnoo & Nairn are all well worth visiting even if the sun isn't shining!! Thank you for the scones and jam and little extras. Tara hotel, Killybegs and Kitty Kellys on rd to Kilcar great places to eat. Enjoy your stay.

First we like to say "Thank you" for the warm welcome after our long journey - the scones and jam were delicious. We didn't expect such a perfect, fully equipped and cosy cottage in the north of Ireland. It is really "gemuthish" and one of the best holiday homes we've stayed in. Thank you for the shower, the beds and the sharp knives. I also didn't expect beaches and dolphins in northern europe. Thank you for the sun and the sand at Portnoo and the dolphins at Fintragh beach. We were here for a wild countryside and got it a Glenveagh N.P., Slieve League and the Giants Causeway. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will taste Ireland again.

Honey Cottage what a warm loving home this is, thank you for letting us share it with you and I wish I could bottle it up and take it with us (picture of smiley face). We have had a fantastic week, it's hard to know where to start. The coast line around here is amazing, for us the Glengesh Pass which is just down the road, right from the gate, left towards Ardara and another sharp left (brown sign) amazing down to Glencolmcill Folk Museum and then onto Slieve League sea cliffs well worth the visit and coastal route back. On a wet day would recommend Marble Arch caves then onto Belleek Pottery in County Fermanagh where you have a tour, really enjoyed it. Giants Causeway is a must then onto Carrick - a - rede a lovely walk on a rope bridge. A long journey 2 hours 13 minutes but woth doing. We would definitely come again if we are this way. Thank you so much for the scones, jam, etc. went down a treat, so thoughtful. Love Julie, David Hollingdale from Basingstoke, UK
PS Thank you for such a clean cottage.

The beauty of Donegal with its beaches and mountains need little introduction. Fintra Beach and Maghera Strand are about 15 minutes away. Also, Slieve League, the highest sea cliffs in Europe are close by and worth a visit as are the traditional music filled heritage town of Ardara and Glencolmcille.The cottage is located a 6-7 minute drive from Killybegs in open countryside. The cottage is set in 7 acres of its own land, so you really feel you are away from it all.
