“Lovely time at the cottage it was quiet and peaceful the couple who owned it ...”
Lovely time at the cottage it was quiet and peaceful the couple who owned it were friendly and let us know about different places that where of interest- Mrs Mclean, May 2018
“Fantastic location and a beautiful cottage.”
The owners are the most welcoming and helpful people, with a broad knowledge of the area. The peat fire brought the perfect atmosphere to the cottage and you could imagine how life was many years ago. Cleanliness was spot on, it was all where you could wish for and a bit more.- Mr Van Hoof, July 2016
“This is, without doubt, the very best of a rapidly-diminishing portfolio of genuine thatched cottages in coastal Southern Ireland.”
The old clichés regarding peace and tranquillity most certainly apply, but in this case those particular attributes are taken to another level. I could continue in this vein all day long; however, to anyone reading this review, please accept that words alone cannot convey the pleasure that my wife and I got from the two weeks we spent in this truly idyllic location. AND, your host and hostess are in a league of their own!- Mr Atkins, April 2014
“A proper Irish family cottage.”- Mrs Tanner, August 2013
“For a thatched cottage of this age, the standards are very good.”
The owners have kept the cottage in excellent condition. The position and location are great for touring. Great place for eating out. My children loved the area and cottage.- Ms Dickie, June 2013

About the location
ARDARA, COUNTY DONEGAL
Donegal Town 17 miles; Derry Airport 54 miles.
Ardara, voted by The Irish Times as one of the 'best villages to live in' in 2012, is one of the most attractive towns in Donegal, set in a wide valley where the Owentocher River enters Loughros More Bay. Visitors can enjoy the many craft and gift shops, together with the traditional Irish pubs. There are many brown trout lakes in the area for budding fisherman, or why not discover the nearby caves and falls of Maghera? Enjoy walking the magnificent Glengesh Pass, with spectacular views over the Atlantic from Loughros Point. Every March, the village hosts a successful walking festival with walkers coming from all over the world, while May boasts the annual “Cup of Tae” traditional music festival. Donegal town, 17 miles away, is situated at the mouth of Donegal Bay, on the River Eske, and is overshadowed by the Bluestack Mountains, which provide a great base for hill walking. With Donegal Castle, and the remains of a Franciscan Abbey which dates back to the 15th century, there is plenty of Irish history to absorb. There is a horse riding centre just one mile away, great golfing opportunities nearby, with a magnificent links course open for players of all abilities just seven miles away, and five miles away is Killybegs Sea Angling, where a competition is held on the first Saturday in May and September each year, along with the Killybegs International Sea Angling Festival, which is a two day event on the second weekend in July. Also 20 miles away is the wonderful Slieve League mountain, which has a height of 601 metres (1972 feet) and is situated on the Atlantic coast of County Donegal. With its sandy beaches offering good surfing conditions, restaurants, shops and pubs, this is the perfect base for an Irish break.
