A detached thatched cottage just over three miles from the heritage town of Ardara in County Donegal. This charming thatched cottage in County Donegal is situated in an elevated location with stunning views of the Glengesh Pass, and is in an ideal location from which to explore the surrounding areas. This lovely Ardara cottage is all on the ground floor and retains all the original character of a traditional Irish cottage with feature beams and stone flagged flooring. There is an open plan kitchen with dining area where you can rustle up homemade meals to enjoy before relaxing in the sitting area in front of the open fire, re-living the events of the day and planning for the next. To the outside of this welcoming holiday home in County Donegal is a lovely front patio where you can dine alfresco or just sit and enjoy a coffee or a refreshing drink. This comfortable Ardara cottage is just five minutes’ walk from the wild and picturesque Glengesh Pass, whilst the town of Ardara is just a short drive away, where you will find many craft and gift shops together with traditional pubs. The town is also the centre for the manufacture of Donegal tweeds, where you are certain to pick up a keepsake of your Irish holiday. Just a few miles from this attractive thatched cottage near Ardara is Donegal town, with the Bluestack Mountains, which are a great base for hill walking, whilst for the fisherman, the lakes in the area are full of brown trout. Visit the highest sea cliffs at Slieve League where there is a cafe, craft shop and the opportunity to partake in archaeological tours. A bounty of beautiful unspoilt beaches make up the area, and for a relaxing afternoon, visit the Blue Flag beach at Narin, where you will also find two pubs and an 18-hole golf course.
