For Lovers of the Great Outdoors

From these unique holiday cottages, you can discover some of the wonders of Donegal. With miles and miles of coastline on their doorstep, Doagh Cottage and the Calf House are a haven for lovers of wildlife, with an abundance of flora and seabirds. In recent years dolphins have become regular visitors to the waters of Lough Swilly. At certain times the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) make an appearance in the local night skies. This natural phenomenon is particularly spectacular when viewed from nearby Fanad Lighthouse.

Beautiful Beaches and a Superb Golf Links on Your Doorstep

The holiday accommodation is situated just a few miles from Portsalon, which boasts a par 72, 18-hole links golf course, the superb blue flag Ballymastocker beach and an attractive harbour. Ballymastocker beach was once voted "the second most beautiful beach in the world". The heritage town of Rathmullan is within easy driving distance

Ballyhiernan is another magnificent beach located 10km to the north west of the cottages.  The popular Adventure One Surf School operates from this beach.

After a busy day golfing, walking, surfing, fishing, bird watching, swimming, snorkelling, boating or horse riding, why not treat yourself to a night out in one of the nearby bars and restaurants? 

Whether you fancy a family holiday, a cosy getaway with friends, or a break in the great outdoors, Doagh Cottage and the Calf House could be perfect for you. Pets are welcome.
