Situated on the grounds of the owner’s home and within easy reach of the glorious coastline, this quaint single-storey cottage is a magnificent base for both family and friends seeking a rural retreat to Ireland.

Be charmed by the open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with a light and airy décor, offering a homely spot to unwind following a day full of adventure.
Kick off your shoes and settle down to enjoy a moment of peace in front of the open fire as it crackles nearby before stepping through to the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up some tasty treats.
Uncork a bottle of wine and gather your loved ones together at the dining table and after dinner, utilise the space to play a game of cards or a traditional board game.
As the evening draws to a close, make use of the handy washing machine to freshen up your holiday attire before preparing for bed with a refreshing rinse in the sleek shower room.

Pack up your bucket and spade and spend a fun-filled day basking in the sun and sand at Marbelhill Beach, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, explore the sights of Ardes Forest Park, or test your swing with a game at Dunfanaghy Golf Club.
The beautiful sands of Killahoey Beach are just a short distance away, where you can paddle the shores of the tranquil waters, try your hand a paddleboarding or kayaking, or for a more leisurely experience, soak up the sunshine with a stroll along the pier.
