Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen Fire

Cashel Cottage Porthaw has a superb beach front location opposite Porthaw Beach just north of Buncrana – the main town on the Inishowen Peninsula. Sheltered by mature trees the cottage looks out over this beautiful beach towards Lough Swilly and the Fanad Peninsula.  Its central location in Inishowen makes it an ideal base to explore this beautiful peninsula. It is also a relaxing base to explore the Historic Walled city of Derry - just 20km (12 miles) away.

Cashel faces west with a magnificent view across Lough Swilly to the hills of Donegal and spectacular sunsets year round.  The house is at the edge of the secluded Porthaw Glen, where an ancient woodland of oak and birch trees lines the valley, and is close enough to the beach to hear the tide lapping the shore.  

The cottage provides a comfortable holiday home with homely furnishings.  All rooms to the front of the cottage enjoy sea views. There are 3 bedrooms that can accommodate up to 6 people, a well equipped kitchen, dining area and living room with open fireplace. The cottage is just a few minutes walk away from the Napoleonic era fort at Ned’s Point and also from a local kayaking centre.

Buncrana:: A Vibrant Town on the Shores of Lough Swilly

Its a short drive by road or a leisurely walk along a coastal path to the centre of Buncrana Town.This vibrant town has a full range of tourist amenities, as well as fine restaurants and lively bars. The town boasts a leisure centre and swimming pool, golf course, pitch and putt, play park, clean safe sandy beaches and many activities for children

The cottage is also an ideal for those who wish to explore historic Derry City from a more a tranquil base. Few places in these islands can offer such a compelling and unique experience for the visitor as the Walled City of Derry - its setting on the steep hills overlooking the wide sweep of the River Foyle, its distinctive architecture and its famous walls all provide enormous appeal.
