The property

Derrybeg 2.6 miles. This is a delightful detached bungalow close to the hamlet of Derrybeg in County Donegal on the Wild Atlantic Way. This lovely cottage is a superb base to discover and explore this fabulous part of the country for friends and families alike. In this attractive cottage there is a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, where you can enjoy sumptuous meals and then move to the cosy sitting room where there is an open fire, if the evening has turned a little chilly. Alternatively, why not sit in the conservatory and savour the great views? There are two ground floor double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower and the family bathroom is also situated on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two family bedrooms both having en-suite showers. Outside this lovely cottage is a front patio with furniture where you can enjoy superb sea views, and a rear courtyard where you can also relax with a book and a refreshing drink. The lovely village of Derrybeg is not far from the cottage and is renowned for its extensive coastline and beautiful sandy beaches together with a superb collection of pubs and restaurants, where you can sample the local delights and the freshly caught catch of the day. The cottage is one mile from Port Arthur Beach which is on the Wild Atlantic Way and well worth a visit. Further afield from this pleasant cottage in County Donegal, is the ancient shipwreck at Bunbeg and the Dunlewey Centre on the shores of Lough Dunlewey overlooked by the Poisoned Glen where you will find fabulous scenery.
