Killard Cottage - Culdaff


Pets AllowedOpen Fire

Situated at the Dunailainn Complex in Culdaff; one of the most northerly towns in Ireland. The cottage is a semi-detached, newly built three bedroom dwelling, fully furnished and tastefully decorated. Upstairs, we find the bedrooms to sleep up to eight, the main bathroom and an en-suite. Downstairs, a fully fitted kitchen with a dining area, an interconnecting lounge with an open fireplace, the entrance hall, a toilet and a patio off the dining area to the rear of the house. A fenced, grassed, back yard makes a safe play area for children, and one can keep an eye on them from the patio or dining area, just inside.

Culdaff is a small quiet village lying off the east bank of the Culdaff River as it forms an estuary to the sea. The river is crossed by two old stone bridges that marked the location of ancient fords from which Culdaff is named.

A lovely north facing "blue flag" sandy beach lies just over a mile away. There is a well equipped children's play area just above the beach, beside the car park. (See bottom picture.) The beach is also noted for good surfing, depending on wind and tide conditions.

Within the village itself, the "green" forms the centrepiece, featuring an old water pump. There are two shops, a post office, a hardware store and three pubs in the town. The old church is built on the site of an earlier monastic church that formed part of the 8th century monastery of St Buadan.

The main attraction in Culdaff, has to be McGrory's; - situated within a short walking distance; it boasts two unique bars:- The Front Bar which is noted for a fine selection of quality food and drink, traditional Irish music and a friendly Irish welcome, while The Backroom Bar is famous throughout Ireland and beyond for its range and quality of music and entertainment. The Backroom Bar can also be used for weddings, conferences, meetings etc. and has full Audio-Visual facilities available.

Local Attractions:

Malin Head, Irelands Most Northerly Point, where on a clear day, the Hebridian islands of Islay and Jura are visible to the east. Looking south, one can't help but be in awe of the beauty of the Inishowen landscape.

The Doagh Island visitor Centre or "The Famine Village"; a 20 minute drive away, between Carndonagh and Ballyliffen, is an outdoor museum with displays and models and structures depicting Ireland as it was in the 1840's and tells the story of the great famine. Traditional music and dance by local artists, perform here in the summer months. In December the centre transforms into Santa's Lapland! - very popular, and early booking is essential if you want to get in.

The Guns of Dunree Military Museum at Dunree Fort on Lough Swilly to the west.

What they say

Our 3rd stay in Killard Cottage was as brilliant as ever. Kids just love it and that makes us happy. Extremely safe for our 9 year old twins to play out the front of the house with the other kids. The adults and children’s bikes provided are a real bonus. The fenced in garden at back of house was perfect for our 3 year old. The fact that McGrory’s is a stone’s through away is a real bonus too – great music, food and craic. The house is really tastefully decorated and always very clean. Looking forward to this August again!

John and Louise Collins, Belfast.
