A traditional Irish cottage, well over 150 years old, in west Donegal, Ireland, situated right on the Wild Atlantic Way close to beautiful deserted Atlantic beaches, traditional Irish pubs and some of the most spectacular scenery in western Europe. Why not come to Ireland for the craic!
Our beautiful family holiday home is decorated in a traditional but comfortable manner and can sleep up to six people. The cottage is at least 150 years old but has been sympathetically modernized and extended and has three bedrooms, all with double beds. There is a family bathroom with full sized bath and separate shower cubicle and an en suite WC and shower room to the main bedroom. The fully equipped kitchen has a full sized oven and induction hob, dishwasher, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, juicer, kettle and microwave. There is plenty of cookware, There is also an additional drinks fridge. The separate laundry room contains a washing machine, tumble dryer and iron. There is a good sized wildflower garden and parking for several cars.

The cottage is in a remote rural area (on the edge of Crocknamurrin Mountain Bog - a Natural Heritage area) but only a short drive from the heritage village of Ardara, and is incredibly peaceful. The cottage is full of books, fiction and non-fiction, there are board games, a radio and CD player with selection of CDs and an MP3 docking station/ speaker. The cottage is furnished with family pieces and some antiques. There is no television or telephone - this is a complete get-away-from-it-all location - but there is free wifi and a DVD player to watch the selection of movies provided. You can sit by a traditional turf fire in the evenings with a relaxing drink and really feel that you are hiding away from the world. The sun does not set until after 10pm in summer and it is beautiful to sit outside on long summer evenings watching the sun set into the west.

The village of Ardara is only a few miles away through the glorious scenery of the Glengesh Pass and has loads of pubs and restaurants. Nancy's Bar and the Corner House enjoy fully deserved worldwide reputations for traditional music and craic. Ardara is the centre of the Donegal knitwear and weaving industry and there are many shops selling locally produced garments in wool and tweed. In the other direction, the quaint villages of Carrick, Kilcar and Glencolumbcille nestle in spectacular scenery, and the cliffs at Slieve League, the highest sea cliffs in western Europe, are a must-see and less than 10 miles from the cottage. Surfing is popular at many of the Atlantic beaches nearby, particularly Tramore at Rosbeg, Rossnowlagh and Dooey Strand. Finally, the most beautiful beach in Donegal and perhaps Ireland (in my opinion) is at Maghera which is very close by. There are plans to extend the International Appalachian Trail to this part of Donegal and there are way marked trails for walkers in the area (less than 1 mile away).

Ardara was named the best village in Ireland to live in, and one of the top 5 places (village, town, city etc) to live in by the Irish Times in June 2012.
