Ravenscroft Cottage - Annagry


Pets AllowedCot & Highchair

The cottage is situated on a large property two and a half miles outside the town of Annagry, set in a quiet and peaceful location. It is south facing, on an elevation overlooking a pleasant rural landscape with a small lake called Heather Lough just to the front.. (see bottom picture)

The cottage itself, is a lovely, neat, newly built dwelling with two bedrooms to sleep up to four; (a fold-up bed will accommodate a fifth.) It has a lounge, a bathroom, a fully fitted kitchen, and a utility room with a separate toilet and basin. The cottage is fully insulated and double glazed with oil fired central heating.

Surrounding Area

The area is known as "The Rosses": - It is a predominantly Irish speaking area of West Donegal, with a geography presenting a rocky, almost barren landscape, studded with a myriad of lakes, coastal sea inlets and numerous offshore islands.

The name comes from the Irish word "Ros"; for headland. The area includes the towns of Annagry, Kincasslagh, Ranafast, Dungloe, Doochary and Lettermacaward; - as well as the inhabited islands of Arranmore, Inisfree, Iniscaoragh, Owey and Cruit.
Dungloe is the largest town in the area, and is five miles south of the cottage.

Donegal Airport

Donegal Airport is just four miles to the north, and is very convenient if you are coming from either Dublin, with a twice daily flights: - or Glasgow Prestwick, which has 4 flights a week. The carrier is Aer Arann. There is also car hire, a cafe-bar, news agents, and friendly service at the airport.

The area seems to develop people with a talent for music, especially traditional Irish music; - and famous names like Enya, Clannad, and Daniel O'Donnell have their origins here.

With the type of coastline and the abundance of lakes; it goes without saying, that fishing is one of the most popular activities in the area. Fresh water anglers will find that the lakes are well provided with salmon and trout. If you fancy the open seas, then boats can be hired or rented for deep sea angling. Fishing permits, boats, detailed angling maps and guides can all be arranged.

Festivals and Events

A number of angling events and festivals are held throughout the year, mainly in the summer months between June and October, with the most notable event being the annual Rosses Anglers "Mary From Dungloe Festival". Not about fishing, but a music festival that started in 1968, focusing on a contest to find a young woman who will be crowned "Mary From Dungloe". It is held in late July and the event attracts thousands of visitors to the area, so early booking is essential.

Annagry has a unique doll factory, where the famous "Crolly Doll" is made. Established in 1936, the dolls were originally made of porcelain, with hand painted features, and hand knit and woven woollens, tweeds and linen clothing.

Dunlewey Visitor Centre

With a twenty minute drive inland to the east, one can visit the Dunlewy visitor centre; set in a most beautiful location on a lough at the foot of the majestic Mt Errigal; - Donegals highest peak. Apart from the visual beauty of the area; visitors will find a restaurant and tea room, a craft shop, an adventure play area, lakeside walks, boat cruising on the lough, traditional music, audio-visual shows and tweed weaving displays.
