Strand Cottage - Gortahork


Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen Fire

Strand Cottage is a beautiful modern 4 bedroom holiday cottage that is blessed with a  wonderfully scenic location on the North West Donegal coastline at  Magheraroarty  - a location that is both secluded and yet convenient to all the main tourist attractions in this part of Donegal. The holiday home is situated on an elevated site overlooking Magheraroarty harbour and pier. From almost every window in the holiday cottage there are wonderful views - views that include  Inishboffin and  Tory island, the  Dooey Peninsula, Magheraroarty Strand, Ballyness Bay, Muckish Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean

Tory and Inishbofin Islands

A 10 minute walk from the front door of the holiday home will have you down on the waters edge. At the pier there are regular ferries to both Inishbofin (10 minute boat trip) and to Tory. Inishbofin is a small, enchanting island far removed from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. It has beautiful white sandy beaches and unusual cliffs and caves. The island is a birdwatcher’s delight, supporting a population of the rare and elusive corncrake, while large numbers of barnacle geese fly in from the Arctic each autumn to remain for the winter. Tory Island is 9 miles off the mainland. It has been inhabited since the earliest times and is rich in archaeological and monastic sites and includes the remains of a round tower. Tory is famous for its school of ‘primitive’ painters who were encouraged by the internationally famous painter, the late Derek Hill.

Gaeltacht Region

Both Tory and Inisbofin are Irish speaking islands. Indeed the holiday home itself  is located in the heart of  one of Donegal's main Gaeltacht area - enabling the visitor to absorb the culture and heritage of this unique region where Irish is still the main everyday language.

North West Donegal

All around the cottage you will find rugged peninsulas, clean beaches and towering mountains. The visitor will find numerous peaceful roads, country lanes and mountain tracks to walk. West Donegal is famous for its natural beauty - from the majesty of Glenveagh National Park  to the wild Atlantic views along Bloody Foreland.  Magheraroarty Strand is a popular venue for windsurfing. There are 2 golf courses within a 20 minute drive of the holiday cottage -  at Falcarragh and Dunfanaghy.

The cottage is close to Errigal Mountain (hillwalking) and the Dunlewey Activity Centre.

Whether you come as a couple or family or in a group - a Donegal fáilte (welcome) awaits you at  beautiful Strand Cottage in Magheraroarty.

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.
