The cottage is located in the northwest of Donegal and makes an ideal base for your family self catering holiday. The village of Gortahork is 3km to the east of the cottage and the fabulous sandy beach at Magheroarty is also 3km away.
This extra spacious home has 5 bedrooms, one of which doubles as a playroom complete with pool table. The cottage enjoys views of the Donegal hills including Errigal and Muckish.
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 15 minute drive of the holiday cottage - at Falcarragh and Dunfanaghy.
A short drive from The cottage will take you to Magheroarty harbour. 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.
The Kitchen is located to the rear of the house and there are views of surrounding landscape.

We have been travelling to Donegal for over 15 years renting accomodation and must say Teach Cara is by far the best house we have booked. No-one wanted to go home at the end of our holiday. Thank you so much.
