Recently restored in a traditional style, Grace\'s Cottage is a delightful traditional Irish farm cottage located in a very peaceful rural setting near the village of   Malin in   North Donegal.

The original building, which is over 100 years old, has been sympathetically restored to the highest standard, retaining many original features such as traditional style windows, half door and  rough stonewalls which have been painted to give the original lime washed look
Fortunately, however, you do not have to sacrifice modern comforts as a modern kitchen, bathroom, ensuite bedrooms and central heating have been sympathetically added to the original cottage to create a top class self catering cottage. The ensuite bedrooms are located in a new extension to the cottage  - the extension has been built to blend in with the original building.

Ideal Base to Tour the Inishowen Peninsula

The cottage is located approximately halfway between the villages of Malin and Culdaff. From its elevated site the holiday home enjoys superb views over the North Inishowen Peninsula towards Trawbreaga Bay.
Due to its central location in North  Inishowen, Grace\'s cottage is within a short driving distance of many beautiful sandy beaches. The spectacular Five Finger Strand north of Malin Town and the wonderful blue flag beach at Culdaff are less than 10 minutes drive away

A 15 minute drive from the holiday home will bring you to the fabulous Ballyliffen Golf Club. The two golf links courses at Ballyliffin  have been described as the \"Ballybunion of the North\". Both courses have large undulating greens, deep bunkers and fairways that are as challenging as the nearby crashing Atlantic surf.
