The small Gaeltacht village of Glencolmcille balances on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. It is known far and wide for its Irish Hospitality, and particularly for its love of traditional Irish music and culture. The village has a petrol station, 2 grocery shops, post office, folk village, tourist information office, restaurant, and three pubs (with great fiddle music often to be found in Roarty's or Biddy's).
The area around the cottage is wonderful hill walking and rambling terrain. Sli Colmcille is a 70 km long route around the Slieve League Peninsula. It passes through Glencolmcille, Kilcar , Carrick, Glengesh, Ardara and Port. Almost half of this route is coastal with the other half through glens and upland areas.
The area around Glencolmcille abounds with stunning scenery, from the spectacular cliffs at Slieve League to the deserted famine village at Port and from the beautiful Silver Strand beach in Malinbeg to the dramatic Glengesh Pass on the road to Ardara.
Glencolmcille is renowned for traditional Irish music. It is home to a unique style of fiddle music which is celebrated every year with a Fiddlers Week (the first week of August). Féile Ghleanncholmcille is another annual summer festival when a great number of visitors arrive to join in on the festivities that include traditional song and dance, workshops and open air concerts.
Glencolmcille is also well-known both nationally and internationally as the home of Oideas Gael, an Irish language learning Institute established in 1984 to promote the Irish language and culture.
