The Twin Bedroom has views to the front of the house .The Third Bedroom consists of one single bed.  Outside the property is surrounded with mature trees and the front has a tarmac driveway surrounded by lawn. The meandering ‘Oily River flows nearby.Set in a peaceful location, off a quiet country road, the house is situated in central west Donegal some four miles north of Killybegs, and six miles south of Ardara, which makes the cottage an ideal touring base.  There are many scenic attractions worth visiting from here, with most within less than a half hours drive. What to see The nearest sandy beaches are the lovely blue flag status beach at Fintragh to the south, or the impressive Maghera Strand at Loughros Beg Bay to the north.  Before arriving at this beach look out for the spectacular Assaranca waterfall, and at low tide, you should be able to visit the Maghera Caves further west along this beach. Other coastal attractions not to be missed are the St Johns Point peninsula, the awesome cliffs at Slieve League said to be the highest in Europe, and the lovely horseshoe bay at Malin Beg near Glencolumbkille.  Where to eat out The nearest pub and restaurant is Mary Murrins, a 3 minute drive down the road at Bruckless, or a little further on, the Michelin starred Castle Murray Restaurant at St Johns Point.

The Clock Tower and  Kitty Kellys come to mind here.  What to do  Hill walking, Angling, Golf (at Portnoo or Murvagh near Donegal Town), a variety of water sports, including surfing, sailing, and sub-aqua diving and sight seeing or touring whether by car, cycle or on foot.

What they say

Congratulations on an absolutely wonderful site! I was going crazy researching availability on other sites - that did not state price, no. of rooms, bathroom facilities often (even after clicking three or four links) and also did not follow a pattern for each entry. Your site is delightful. I could go through all pages of entries and with the price details given immediately did not need to waste time over entries not within my budget.
