    “I cannot speak highly enough about our stay at Wee Andy's.”

    Cathy and Rory were the perfect hosts - they had thought about just about everything we could possibly want during our stay and made sure we knew they were available should we need anything else.

    Cathy and Rory were the perfect hosts - they had thought about just about everything we could possibly want during our stay and made sure we knew they were available should we need anything else. They provided a welcome pack of baked goods and wine; very unexpected but a lovely touch. The house itself is modern, immaculately clean and has great facilities - we cooked many meals when we were there and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. There was unlimited hot water and the heating was very effective. The beds were very comfortable, with pristine white bedlinen and lots of lovely plump pillows on every bed - a refreshing change from many rental houses. One of our party had limited mobility so everything on one level, and a modern wetroom, was just perfect for us. Multiple parking spaces provided just outside the front door so loading and unloading cars was as painless as possible. Our party ranged from teens to 50s and everyone loved the house and fully intend to visit again if at all possible. Thanks to Cathy and Rory for providing such great facilities and making us so welcome; just the right balance of contact/leaving us to our own devices. A beautiful house in a beautiful area.

The property

Buncrana 1.3 miles.

Tucked away in Slavary, a stone's throw from the vibrant town of Buncrana on the Inishowen Peninsula, rests this charming single-storey cottage, Wee Andy's.

Perfectly positioned to explore both the coast on the Wild Atlantic Way and country of Ireland, Wee Andy's is the idyllic base for your next group adventure.

A spacious private driveway greets you upon arrival, leading you along the pathway to this lovely dwelling, beautifully-decorated with a contemporary exterior, inviting you to kick off your shoes and discover the delights that lie indoors.

Stepping into the property, you're welcomed into a stylish sitting room, fit with modern furnishings, inviting you to put your feet up and unwind for a moment of peace with a seat in front of the television.

Continuing through, enter into the immaculate kitchen where you can find all the necessary essentials for your stay, including a handy washing machine and dryer to refresh your wardrobe after an action-packed day.

Cook up a storm and gather your loved ones around the intimate dining table to serve your culinary delights, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outside for a spot of alfresco dining on the patio, offering a lovely spot to soak in the evening sun.

As the day draws to a close, retire to one of the three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms to rest your head, choosing between a spacious king-size with en-suite shower room, a family room with a super king-size double and a single with an en-suite shower room and a twin, perfect for larger groups!

After a fun-filled day, take a break from doing the cooking with a short stroll into the heart of Buncrana, boasting a fantastic selection of eateries to suit all tastes, including quaint cafes and delicious restaurants, and end the day in Irish tradition with a pint of Guiness and some good craic at O'Flaherty's Bar.

Take the scenic walking route along the Amazing Grace Walk toward the viewing platform, providing panoramic views across the stunning waters of Lough Swilly, or if that's not your thing, discover the fascinating art on display at The Northern Light Gallery & Studio.

Spend a fun-filled day at the nearby Lisfannon Beach, basking in the sun from the delightful golden sand that decorates the front, or tackle the waves with a session of surfing.

Further afield is the picturesque landscape of Glenveagh National Park, stretching over 16,000 acres of stunning scenery, offering a great selection of walking and cycling routes, passing lakes, mountains and woodland, with something to suit all abilities.

Whether you're looking for adventure or to unwind, choose Wee Andy's as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.
