Glenoory Bay Cottage - Downings

Sea ViewsPets AllowedTraditional PropertyOpen Fire

Glenoory Bay Cottage  is a traditional holiday cottage with a wonderful setting along the Alantic Drive on the Rosguill Peninsula. The cottage nestles into a heather clad hillside and overlooks  Glennoory Bay - an unspoilt horeshoe shaped bay with a lovely secluded beach.

This picture postcard setting is enhanced by the presence of a whitewashed homestead and barn to the rear of the cottage which - together with the hillside - provides a sheltered courtyard. The stone work on the front of the cottage blends almost seamlessly into the local landscape.

Rosguill Peninsula

The Rosguill Peninsula itself is a beautiful peninsula extending north from Carrigart and Downings and ending in the dramatic  Melmore Head.  To the west of the Peninsula is Sheephaven Bay, to the east is Mulroy Bay and to the north is the Atlantic Ocean. The small roads around the peninsula offer magnificent sea and mountain views and provide ideal walking and cycling terrain. There are also numerous secluded beaches dotted around the rugged coastline - the renowned Tra na Rossan is just over 1km from the holiday cottage.


Glenoory Bay Cottage is located 5km form the holiday  resort of Downings. This popular seaside village has a wonderful beach and a small working harbour. It is a poular centre for beach and water based activities including swimming, diving, windsurfing, sailing and sea angling. The village is also well served with hotels, restaurants and pubs. Just outside Downings is the superb Rosapenna Golf Resort featuring 2 championship golf links - the Old Tom Morris Course and the Sandy Hills Course. These courses overlook the golden sands of Tramore beach and Sheephaven Bay.

North Donegal

Glenoory Bay Cottage is ideally located to explore 3 of the most beautiful peninsulas in Ireland - Rosguill, Fanad and Horn Head. The new Mulroy Bridge near Carrigart means that the Fanad Peninsula is just over 10 km from the holiday cottage. The cottage is 30km from Glenveagh National Park. This magnificent park has over 16,000 hectares  of mountains, lakes, glens and woods, with a herd of red deer and the recently reintroduced Golden Eagle.

Glenoory Bay cottage  offers the visitor an opportunity to escape from the pressures of modern day life and relax in a truly tranquil and beautiful setting. Whether you want to enjoy the great outdoors or simply want to unwind and relax this charming cottage provides the ideal holiday base.

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.
