Corncrake Cottage is a superb holiday home located on Kill Mountain overlooking the popular holiday resort of Dunfanaghy in North Donegal. The cottage has been built in a traditional style with exposed ceiling beams, reclaimed wooden floors, large stone fireplace, wide chimney breast and rough cast walls inside and out. It has been tastefully furnished and decorated throughout in keeping with the traditional style.

The elevated site of the cottage on Kill Mountain provides it with stunning  and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and coastline - from Horn Head to Sheephaven Bay. This beautiful landscape is ever changing with the constantly changing sky.

The cottage can accommodate up to 8 people in 3 very spacious bedrooms - all with good views. Each bedroom is furnished with luxury beds and goose down quilts.
The large open plan ground floor of the cottage combines the ease of modern living with the charm of a bygone era. The centrepiece is a huge stone fireplace which takes up a large part of the rough cast gable wall. This open plan area has traditional style widows on 3 sides - all offering superb views. The upper floor of the cottage looks down on the open plan area through a railed gallery.

Surrounding Area

Concrake cottage is centrally located on the North Donegal coastline. There are  few areas of Ireland which enjoy such an unspoilt environment with a wealth of opportunity for open-air activities.

Mountain climbing and hill walking are popular in this spectacular landscape with Errigal,  Muckish and the Derryveagh mountains all easily reachable.  Windsurfing, water-skiing, scuba diving, canoeing and sailing are popular activities in the general locality.

Horse-riding, cycling, hill walking and painting are ever popular in this beautiful area. A herd of native red deer roams the mountains and valleys in the nearby 10,000 hectare Glenveagh National Park, famed for its castle, lakes, formal gardens, exotic plants and rare birds - including the recently reintroduced golden eagle.
