Pets AllowedCot & Highchair

Heather cottage is a cosy 3 bedroom holiday home situated near the shores of  Killoughcarron Lake. The surrounding countryside is dominated by the majestic Muckish Mountain. The cottage itself is well equiped and ideal for a self-catering family holiday.  Due to its location it enjoys peace and privacy amid wonderful rugged countryside, ideal for a quiet country retreat. 

The holiday home is centrally located - just two miles from Creeslough Village. The Irish word Creeslough means The Belt of Lakes - a reference to the many lakes that surround the village. Creeslough is the home of the famous Bridie Gallagher - The First Lady of Irish Song.

North Donegal

The cottage has a very central location on the North Donegal coast - it is 6 miles from Dunfanaghy, 7 miles from Carrigart and 10 miles from Downings. Letterkenny - which is Donegal's largest town - is only 16 miles away and offers a wide range of retail outlets, cinema, theatre, restaurants, banks, hospital, etc.

There are few areas of Ireland which enjoy such an unspoilt environment with a wealth of opportunity for open-air activities. In addition to the beautiful beaches at Downings, Dunfanaghy, Marble Hill, Ards Forest Park and the entire region is a fisherman’s paradise with trout and salmon lakes and rivers in the area. 

Within half an hour of the cottage, there are a number of spectacular coastal drives including the Atlantic Drive, Lough Salt Drive and the coastal road around Horn Head.

Fanad Light House, one of the world's most beautiful lighthouses, is located on the north coast of Donegal, on the wild and windswept Fanad peninsula, which is a 30 minute drive from Heather Cottage.  (Guided tours of the light house were available prior to the Covid pandemic.)

Local Activities

Rock and mountain climbing are popular in this spectacular landscape with Errigal, Muckish and the Derryveagh mountains all easily reachable. 

Windsurfing, water-skiing, sub aqua, canoeing and sailing are popular activities in the general locality - Marble Hill Beach. 

For the golf enthusiast there are four 18 hole courses - at Rosapenna, Dunfanaghy and Carrigart.

Horse-riding, cycling, hill walking and painting are ever popular in this beautiful area.

A herd of native red deer roams the mountains and valleys in the nearby 10,000 hectares Glenveagh National Park, famed for its castle, lakes, formal gardens, exotic plants and rare birds - including the recently reintroduced golden eagle.  Tours of the castle available also - payable. 

In the more immediate locality of the holiday home, you will find the famous Lackagh Bridge, the historic Doe Castle and the enchanting Ards Forest Park. The historical Owencarron Viaduct is also close by.

Cutting the Corn in Creeslough Today was penned by one of Ireland most noted poet and song writer - Percy French - and has made Creeslough a familiar name well beyond Ireland's shores.
