Granny Kate's Cottage Ardara: A  truly authentic Irish Thatched Cottage located in a picture postcard setting near the entrance to the spectacular Glengesh Pass in South Donegal. The Cottage has been restored to its former glory, retaining almost every detail of its original character. The cottage has a traditional design - on entering through the half door you come into the living area with its original hearth, flag stone floor, oak beam ceiling, dresser, butter churn and a wealth of other original features. There are two bedrooms on either side of the living area which can accommodate up to 5 people. The cottage has been designed to turn the clock back, help slow you down, and leave you in the right mood to savour, once again, the simple pleasures in life.
