The property

With sweeping views of the dramatic Donegal coast, this lovely hilltop cottage in the village of Derrybeg is the perfect location for friends and families looking to explore the beauty of County Donegal. The views from this four bedroom Donegal cottage are nothing short of astonishing and can be enjoyed from throughout the house. This well-presented cottage features two sitting rooms, offering ample space for a group of eleven to spread out, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and a dining area. Sunny days can be spent outside of your Derrybeg cottage, with the children running around the spacious shared garden and the adults enjoying the views and fresh Irish air. The coastal village of Derrybeg is a traditional Irish Gaeltacht village, making it ideal for those looking to experience true Irish culture, right down to learning a bit of the language. Derrybeg also offers a wide selection of shops, restaurants, a nightclub and pubs, many of which hold regular Irish music sessions. The local Derrybeg beach wouldn't be out of place in the tropics, with wide expanses of golden sand and glittering blue waters. Heading away from your Derrybeg cottage, a day trip to the majestic Glenveagh National Park is sure to delight, with an abundance of walking and cycling tracks to explore. Those looking for something a bit livelier, visits to Letterkenny and Dungloe are in order, or completely get away from it all with a trip to one of the many small islands that dot the coast – you might even spot a whale or two. A holiday spent amongst the beauty of County Donegal is sure to leave you feeling inspired and rejuvenated and this Derrybeg cottage is the perfect place to spend your time.
