Heather Cottage - Creeslough


Pets AllowedCot & Highchair

Heather cottage is a lovely 3 bedroom holiday home situated on a small working farm near the shores of  Killoughcarron Lake. The surrounding countryside is dominated by the majestic Muckish Mountain. The cottage itself is ideal for a self-catering family holiday or a quiet country retreat - the large field around the house is a safe playground for children.

The holiday home is located just two miles from Creeslough Village. The Irish word Creeslough means The Belt of Lakes - a reference to the many lakes that surround the village. Creeslough is the home of the famous Bridie Gallagher - The First Lady of Irish Song - and the local festival held every summer is dedicated to her.

North Donegal

The cottage has a very central location on the North Donegal coast - it is 6 miles from Dunfanaghy, 7 miles from Carrigart and 10 miles from Downings. Letterkenny - which is Donegal\'s largest town - is only 16 miles away and offers a wide range of retail outlets, cinema, theatre, restaurants, banks, hospital, etc

There are few areas of Ireland which enjoy such an unspoilt environment with a wealth of opportunity for open-air activities. In addition to the beautiful beaches at Downings, Dunfanaghy and Marble Hill, the entire region is a fisherman’s paradise with trout and salmon lakes and rivers.

Within half an hour of the cottage, there are a number of spectacular coastal drives including the Atlantic Drive, Lough Salt Drive and the coastal road around Horn Head.

Local Activities

Rock and mountain climbing are popular in this spectacular landscape with Errigal,  Muckish and the Derryveagh mountains all easily reachable.  Windsurfing, water-skiing, sub aqua, canoeing and sailing are popular activities in the general locality.

For the golf enthusiast there are four 18 hole courses - at Rosapenna, Dunfanaghy and Carrigart. 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 hectares Glenveagh National Park, famed for its castle, lakes, formal gardens, exotic plants and rare birds - including the recently reintroduced golden eagle.

In the more immediate locality of the holiday home, you will find the famous Lackagh Bridge, the historic Doe Castle and the enchanting Ards Forest Park. The historical Owencarron Viaduct is also close by.

Cutting the Corn in Creeslough Today was penned by one of Ireland most noted poet and song writer - Percy French - and has made Creeslough a familiar name well beyond Ireland's shores.

While staying at Heather Cottage you can walk through green fields and listen to the everyday sounds of a working farm. The land around the house is a fantastic playground for children with trees to climb and lots of open space to run around in. The holiday home is an excellent base for a range of outdoor activities.  It’s also the perfect location for a relaxing getaway.

What they say

Lovely cottage in the Creeslough area of Donegal.  A short drive away from the Glenveigh National Park.  The cottage is well equiped, clean, homely and the beds comfortable.  Pets are welcome and the cottage comfortably sleeps 6.  there are plenty of nice restaurants and pubs a short drive away and the location is very quiet and scenic.  The perfect choice for a weekend away from the city.
