Slievebawn Cottage - Malin Head


Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen FireCot & Highchair

This warm and bright cottage with two spacious rooms on either side of a single entrance and hall is an original fisherman's cottage that has recently been lovingly restored. It is one of about 10 original fisherman's cottages in the little clachan (hamlet) of Slievebawn and nestles above the beach and pier at Portmore, Malin Head.

From the entrance, the room to the left includes the sitting room with an open fireplace, a fitted kitchen, and a dining area. To the right of the cottage is a spacious single bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. Between the two rooms, facing the entrance is a neat and clean shower room. The cottage has high vaulted ceilings throughout, providing an airy feeling and the solid pine floor boards ensure warmth and brightness.

The cottage is a two minute walk from two beaches: The picturesque and intimate sandy beach at Sandport and the shingle beach of Portmore beside Malin Head pier which is popular for swimming and diving. In the summer months fresh crab and fish is landed daily at the pier.

The cottage would be suitable for a single person, a couple, or possibly a young family with a child.
An ideal retreat, perhaps for an artist, or a touring base from which to explore this most northern part of Ireland.

Surrounding Area

The cottage is situated at Malin Head, Irelands most northerly point, and is very close to Farrens Bar, which also holds the claim of being Irelands most northerly Pub.

From Banba's Crown, a nearby hill which marks the most northerly point with an old Lloyd's look-out tower, there are spectacular coastal views to the north, east and west, and inland views of the Inishowen hills to the south.

For the more active; walking is an ideal pursuit, and the area has some spectacular and challenging walks. One popular coastal walk along the cliffs, is from Banba's Crown to Devils Bridge and Hells Hole; from where one can have views of Inishtrahull Island and Scotland on a clear day.

After about 90 minutes, refresh yourself on your return, with a pint of Guinness at Irelands most northerly watering hole; Farrens Bar, followed by a visit to The Seaview Tavern and the Crossroads Inn maybe for a meal and several more!

Golf can be played, after a twenty five minute drive, at the famous Ballyliffin Golf Club, with its two links courses. Inishowen offers other golf courses at Buncrana, Greencastle and Redcastle.

Near the golf course, on The Isle of Doagh; visit the Famine Village. This is a unique outdoor museum, with models and displays telling the story of life in Ireland during the 1840's when the great famine occurred.

Take a drive on the route known as the "Inishowen 100". This is a scenic drive which takes you on a tour around the Inishowen Peninsula, following a roughly 100 mile journey that provides some of the most spectacular scenery to be seen anywhere in Ireland.

The drive will take you through all the major towns and villages in the area, you will see forests, barren bog land, sea cliffs, rugged mountains and soft rolling hills. Amazing coastal sea-scapes and inland views: You will stop many times to enjoy it all.

Just take a camera and your walking shoes

What they say

Can I also take this opportunity to say how helpful and user friendly your website is - it is certainly a plus for Donegal. I became aware of it through a friend who has booked a house in Ballyliffin for a number of us attending a wedding in the area in the summer.
