The property

Just a short walk from the centre of Falcarragh, a coastal town in the north of County Donegal, this detached, cosy cottage is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful county. Set solely over the ground floor, this Falcarragh cottage is great for couples, groups of friends, and families exploring the coastal delights of the glorious region. Lovingly decorated to create a home away from home, this Falcarragh cottage offers two double bedrooms and a family bathroom where you can enjoy a soak in the tub and soothe your soul after a day exploring. Prepare picnics for days on the go in the well-equipped kitchen and spread your maps and guide books over the dining table to plan your day’s adventures from this Falcarragh cottage! After a day spent sight-seeing, curl up by the open fire, catch up on some reading, or reminisce the day’s escapades over a shared bottle of wine. On warm summer afternoons, venture outside into the pretty gardens and when the skies are clear, you can see all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Being the largest Irish speaking area of Donegal, the majority of Falcarragh’s locals speak it as their first language meaning you can really immerse yourself in traditional Irish culture and truly escape from everyday life. Peruse the shops in the centre of Falcarragh and enjoy a pint of Guinness in one of its pubs, showcasing traditional live folk music, and make friends with the locals. Situated in an AONB, this Falcarragh cottage boasts the majestic Derryveagh Mountains as its backdrop. Take a ferry to Tory Island and Inisboffin with walking, cycling and even scuba diving opportunities! The stretches of sand at Ballyness Bay, Drumnatinney and Magheroarty are great for when the sun comes out, or wrap up warm and breathe in that fresh, salty sea air with a stroll along the sand. Venture to north west Donegal and explore the collection of castles, houses, and tombs peppered along its coastline. Lose yourself in its history and heritage, while the Tsean Bheairic Visitors Centre will help you plan your day trips to the many attractions and guided tours taking place in the surrounding area. This delightful cottage on the edge of Falcarragh is a wonderful base for an Irish retreat, all year round.
