Orchard Grove Cottage - Malin


Open FireCot & Highchair

Orchard Grove is located in picturesque Malin, just a 'stone's throw' from the village green, making it conveniently close to all the amenities in the town.

Named after a fruit orchard that once occupied the site, the house is a two storey semi detached house that also serves as a B&B when not occupied as a holiday home. Across the road, the Ballyboe River mouth is crossed by a unique ten arched bridge that carries the road into the town. The river flows into Trawbreaga Bay, a relatively shallow bay which at low tide, drains up to 80% of its volume of water, exposing a mixture of sandbanks, mudflats and stony or rocky substrates. Some areas of salt marsh fringe the bay.

Surrounding Area

Malin is a picturesquely situated at the head of Trawbreaga Bay an interesting feature of the approach to the village is the stone bridge with it’s arches spanning the Bay. The triangular village green borders with limes, sycamore, cherry and oak trees and decorated with colourful flower beds is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy your ice cream. Malin is twice winner of the National Tidy Town’s Award.

Beach

The nearest sandy beach is the fabulous "Five Finger Strand"; said to be named after five rocks protruding out of the water like fingers.5 finger strand - Orchard Grove Cottage, Malin, Inishowen, Donegal, Ireland The beach is at the mouth of Trawbreaga Bay, and faces due west onto the Atlantic; surrounded by hills and cliffs, with Glashedy Isle, a small, very prominent rocky island visible to the west. This amazing sandy beach allows for a leisurely walk and a chance to experience the crashing Atlantic surf. The area just behind the beach is also noted for having the largest sand dunes in Europe; - at Lagg, with its beautifully situated church.

Sightseeing

Sightseeing is one of the major activities in this uniquely beautiful part of Ireland, and perhaps we should recommend a drive along the " Inishowen 100" (Inis-Eoghain100) a roughly 100 mile long drive around the perimeter of the Peninsula, taking in all the natural scenic beauty along the way. All the major towns and villages, coastal, inland, mountain and valley, forest and rugged barren bogland; you will not fail to be impressed by much of what you see

What they say

I travel a lot so I'm always looking for interesting places to stay - anything to avoid another carbon copy hotel - and this has got to be one of the best local travel sites I've seen. Plenty of detail, tons of photos, excellent location info and clear pricing - everything I need to make an informed call. Great job and I'll be recommending the site to anyone else I know who's travelling in Donegal.
