The Limehouse - Killybegs


Free Wi-FiOpen FireCot & Highchair

The  Limehouse is located one and a half miles from the fishing port of Killybegs. Set on a private wooded site with  natural waterfalls, it provides the ideal haven for anyone desiring a relaxing break in a unique setting. 

Extensive Grounds

With extensive grounds, the Limehouse affords privacy in a beautiful unspoilt area and is less than a ten minute walk from Fintra beach which has blue flag status. Its location makes it an ideal base for exploring the beautiful county of Donegal. - Near the coast and less than half an hour’s drive from the highest marine sea cliffs in Europe, the majestic Slieve League, - with Glencolmcille to the west and Donegal to the east, it is centrally located for touring and sight seeing by land or sea.

Old Lime Kiln

The Limehouse gets its name from the old lime kiln beside the house. A set of stone steps lead up to the orchard with its plum and apple trees. Wander up the path through the orchard and enjoy views of the water rushing through the sluice gates, - a reminder of times past when a mill was to be constructed for the Fintra estate. The three way split of the river at the gates gives access to a little island mid-stream that is covered in a lush carpet of bluebells in May and June.

The house itself is perched on the bend of the river and is surrounded by a timber deck overhanging the river on two sides, affording beautiful views of the waterfalls. Traditional in style, the one and a half storey cottage boasts many unusual features. The entrance hall and kitchen have flag flooring, and timber is used throughout the remainder of the house. 

Cosy Kitchen

The cosy kitchen with its black antique Stanley 8 range, Belfast sink, and rocking chair also has the advantage of modern conveniences, -including dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, etc. The little timber breakfast room, leading off the kitchen, has access to the deck with its outdoor furniture making it an ideal setting for dining ‘al fresco’.

Traditional music, lively street festivals, international boat shows and an annual seafood week, attract tourists time and time again.
