Sea ViewsPets AllowedTraditional PropertyCot & Highchair

For years artists have made Shanaghan Cottage their muse, taking inspiration from the views across the water of Loughros More Bay on one side and the still, uninterrupted beauty of Shanaghan Lake on the other. The cottage is a beautiful family holiday home that has been lovingly restored and extended to twice its original size to offer the full convenience of open- plan kitchen living and luxurious bathrooms, twinned with the traditional rustic charm of an original thatched Irish cottage, complete with 'granny' bed and stable door.

Idyllic Location

Situated on Loughros point, just a mile west of the bustling and vibrant town of Ardara, the cottage is  a  perfect location for those seeking a base for all sorts of holiday, whether it be action- packed adventure including walking, horse riding, fishing, golf or cycling; a peaceful haven to escape the daily grind or take inspiration to paint or to write; or for those wishing to spend time by the sea with spectacular sandy beaches nearby and quiet coves or stunning Atlantic Ocean views just a walk away along an Irish country road. There is truly something for everyone.

Old World Charm with Modern Comforts

Shanaghan Cottage sleeps 9 in total , with 3 double rooms, two of which share a luxurious en-suite,; a bed sofa and 'granny' bed ( sure to be favoured by the more adventurous younger family members)in the original thatched cottage main room. Top quality bed linen is provided. There are two luxurious contemporary family bathrooms ( including mentioned en-suite) , complete with wet room style power shower in one , and bath and walk in shower in the other. Cotton towels are provided.

This room is cleverly lit by a series of roof lights on one wall and a full glazed wall on the other, with doors opening onto a sheltered outdoor paved area, overlooking Loughros More Bay, complete with outdoor lighting for al-fresco dining in the evening.
