The property

With sandy beaches and seascapes, this delightful detached thatched cottage is an ideal coastal destination in the hamlet of Cloughwilly, near the village of Lettermacaward in West Donegal. This charming cottage is situated just off the Wild Atlantic Way and has a traditional thatched roof and character half door, making it a memorable base for families and groups of friends. The cottage features the quirks of an old cottage, but with all modern comforts and has been tastefully renovated to provide a real home-from-home. All on the ground floor, the cottage has two double bedrooms and a twin with an en-suite shower room. Cook family meals in the well-equipped fitted kitchen before heading to the comfy sitting room with an open turf fire and original roof beams; a great spot to snuggle up with your loved ones while you watch a movie. Outside is a lawned garden and a rear gravelled area, where you can plan your next day’s adventures as you relax with a refreshing drink. Lettermacaward is home to a local shop and pub and lies along the main road from Dungloe to Glenties, each with a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Ireland’s stunning Wild Atlantic Way is on your doorstep, or you may wish to discover the breathtaking sea cliffs at Slieve League, the sprawling wild beauty of the Glenveagh National Park and Arranmore Island, which is accessed via regular ferries from the fishing village of Burtonport. The island of Inishfree allows you to step back in time and experience a place without cars or technology, and appreciate its raw stunning beauty. The areas has plenty of attractions for young and old within easy reach, including the Blue Flag beach and golf course at Portnoo, or why not visit the heritage town of Ardara with its colourful shops, traditional pubs and Irish charm. A wonderful cottage in the north west of Ireland, where memories are just waiting to be made.
