Cot & Highchair

L'Abri Cottage exudes a warm welcome from the moment one steps over the threshold. It has all the features of a country cottage and is wholly ideal for five adults or family with children.  The holiday home is set in the heart of the Donegal countryside and yet is close to a host of amenities. It is the perfect setting for a relaxing getaway.

A Homely Cottage

The ground floor of the cottage is open plan with kitchen, dining and sitting room areas. There are patio doors from the sitting room area opening onto a large decking area which hosts bench, table & chairs.  This overlooks the owners vegetable garden and has all day sun.

The second bedroom has one double and one single bed with ample space to accommodate three persons. This cottage has been built by the current owners for comfort and a totally unwinding experience.

The landscape around the cottage is excellent walking, hillwalking and cycling terrain, with something new and exciting to discover around every corner.

Anne & Steve,

A little note to thank you sincerely for accommodation at L'Abri Cottage.

Our stay was great.  The cottage beautiful.  Beds comfortable and the house spotless.

Luc and Aedd loved their holiday in "our little cottage" as they called it.  

Thank you for the beautiful food on arrival.  A surprise to say the leaet.  We have stayed in many self caterings and it is refreshing to have such a lovely welcome on arrival.  We appreciated it and the kids wolfed down the scones and beautiful jam.  

We all had a brilliant time.  Thank you
