Bumblebee Traditional Cottage
Bumblebee Cottage is a traditional thatched cottage located halfway up a rugged Donegal mountain with amazing panoramic views of Fintra Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. This ‘picture postcard’ cottage has recently been renovated and offers all the comforts and facilities one expects from modern-day luxury accommodation.
Bumblebee Cottage is nestled in the very heart of unspoilt Donegal in a tiny village called Fintra. A two-minute drive away to the beautiful Blue Flag beach of Fintra Bay, the cottage is close to many ‘undiscovered’ stunning cove beaches and breathtaking sites, such as Slieve League. The panoramic views of the sea and mountains from Bumblebee Cottage are absolutely breathtaking. You can see six counties from the front door: Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo, Mayo, Fermanagh and Galway.

Bumblebee cottage is as enjoyable in the winter as it is in the summer. When the Donegal rain and wind is howling outside, curl up inside by the gorgeous fire and watch the Atlantic waves crashing below.
There are plenty of board games and DVDs in the cottage to keep you occupied. When the sun is shining, the front garden at Bumblebee Cottage is the perfect sun trap, as it is located in on south-facing hill. It is a great spot for the kids to play whilst you can BBQ local fresh fish sold at the nearby market stalls.
While Bumblebee Cottage is nearly a hundred years old and one of the few remaining thatched cottages around in Ireland today – it has been extensively renovated and re thatched in 2017 to create a cosy cottage atmosphere yet with all the mod cons to make it a compact yet comfortable retreat.
