The cottage is a delightful, modern bungalow with three bedrooms to sleep nine. It has a main bathroom and an en suite shower room and the lounge, kitchen and conservatory boast an open plan style, with sea views from the conservatory. There is a decked patio area to the rear, on the West side, -  ideal for relaxing with friends and a drink, while watching the sunset. The cottage is within 1 min drive of the golden crescent of Magheroarty beach.

The kitchen is fully fitted with modern appliances and storage units, and the lounge has a traditional open fireplace. The cottage is fully insulated and has double glazing and oil fired central heating for added comfort.

Surroundings

It is situated in Magheroarty, (Machaire Uí Robhartaigh) up in the remote north west corner of Donegal on a part of the north coast which is just south of the off-shore islands of Inishbofin, Inishdooey, Inishbeg and Tory. Tory is the furthest of the four islands, but also the largest, so appears deceptively close when looking out to sea. Magheroarty lies west of the coastal towns of Dunfanaghy, Falcarragh and Gortahork on the R257 road which follows the Donegal coastline. It has a lovely sweeping crescent shaped sandy beach and a pier from which local fishing and ferry boats to the islands operate.

The area is an Irish speaking Gaeltacht, which has been home to a Gael Linn Irish language Summer School since 1982. The local shop, - McFaddens, is a 3 minute walk from the cottage, and there are two pubs, Dixons and Colls.

A main attraction at Magheroarty for many tourists is almost certainly its popularity as a kite and wind surfing destination. To quote from a surfing website,  Both the beach and reef breaks are excellent for wind surfing and are becoming the in location for wave sailing in Ireland.
