Auchnish Cottage - Cruit Island


Sea ViewsOpen FireCot & Highchair

Auchnish Cottage is set amidst the rugged and tranquil landscape of Cruit Island in West Donegal. The holiday home is 500 metres away from a wonderful sandy beach – just one of 8 beautiful beaches on the island. This setting makes Auchnish Cottage an ideal base for a relaxing break away from the stresses of modern living.

The Cottage

The cottage itself is deceptively spacious. A large master bedroom on the ground floor has excellent ensuite facilities. There are two more bedrooms on the first floor – a twin and double – both enjoying wonderful views of the rugged island landscape. Adjacent to these bedrooms is a bathroom with bath and separate shower. Also on the first floor there is a large games room with a pool table and television. This room enjoys views towards Aranmore Island. On the ground floor there is a tastefully decorated living room and a bright kitchen with dining area.

The rugged coastline around Cruit Island and around Kincaslagh on the mainland abounds with sandy beaches, small harbours and rocky shoreline.  This wonderful landscape is ideal for a a host of outdoor activities such as walking, fishing, boating, swimming and bird watching. 5 minutes from the holiday home is the wonderful Cruit Island Golf Club. This is one of the best – and perhaps the most scenic – 9 hole golf courses in Ireland. The course overlooks Owey and Aranmore islands and has Mount Errigal as a backdrop.

The Rosses

The holiday home is located in a part of Donegal known as the Rosses (Irish for Headland). The Irish Language has survived in the Rosses -  along with a healthy traditional Irish Music scene. The popular Irish Country singer Daniel O Donnell is from Kincasslagh. The renowned Leo's Tavern near Annagry is the home of the world famous Clannad and Enya  and holds regular music sessions.

Cruit Island is  an E.U. designated "Special Area of Conservation". The island dunes are home to a variety of wild flowers and rare bird-life.

The cottage is located 8km from Carrickfinn Airport with direct flights to Dublin and Glasgow Prestwick.
