Siciley's Cottage - Greencastle


Sea ViewsOpen FireCot & Highchair

Located on an elevated site overlooking Kinnagoe Bay and the headlands of north Inishowen, Sicley’s has arguably the  finest sea views of any cottage along Ireland’s north coast.Built on the site of an older group of houses, this magnificent holiday rental extends to 3,000 sq. ft. of living space and due to its elongated shape all rooms but one have truly panoramic views encompassing the ocean, steep wooded cliffs and a small sandy cove.

The house is located on a working family farm, so you can benefit of the owners local knowledge as well as enjoying a real turf fire. To the northern end there is a sunroom with spectacular views and the main dining area has a dramatic cathedral style ceiling and feature staircase. If you’re looking for somewhere a little bit special for your holiday in Donegal, Sicley’s Cottage, Kinnagoe Bay, should certainly be on your shortlist.

The spectacular golden sands of Kinnagoe Bay and its dramatic setting make it a real hidden gem of County Donegal. On a clear day it is possible to get a view of the coast of Scotland from the headlands above the sandy coveThe bay is also the final resting place for one of the ill-fated galleons of the Spanish Armada (La Trinidad Valencera) sunk in terrible storms in 1588.

A plaque near the beach commemorates this event. You can see the recovered cannon in Derry City Museum and the bell from the ship was taken to a church in Carndonagh and is still in use today.

What they say

 "We had a wonderful stay at Sicileys Cottage. It felt like paradise with the spectacular views of Kinnagoe Bay and the lovely tranquil setting in the countryside. The cottage was fully equipped and the owner provided us with anything that we needed. I would highly recommend this accommodation and hope to go back to relive our experience once again in the future"
