The property

Idyllically positioned in a secluded setting on the outskirts of Dunfanaghy, County Donegal, rests this charming stone-built holiday home, Fig Cottage.

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.

Park up on the spacious gravelled driveway before unloading your belongings and stepping through the vibrant doorway, adorned with delightful fig trees in homage to the properties name, and begin your staycation.

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.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between two well-presented bedrooms, with a sumptuous double and a snug twin room with zip/link, ideal for providing flexible sleeping arrangements for children or friends.

A short car journey from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of Dunfanaghy, where you'll find a fantastic selection of local amenities, including a handful of pubs and restaurants, an elegant cocktail and wine bar, perfect for a well-deserved pit stop, and if you time it right, you might even catch a spot of live music at The Oyster Bar.

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.

Lace up your walking boots and venture further inland to Glenveagh National Park, where its ancient woodland, rugged mountains and open waters provide a plethora of walking, cycling and hiking routes; follow the trail alongside Lough Beagh to discover Glenveagh Castle, nestled within the native oak.

For a coastal retreat that you'll remember for years to come, choose Fig Cottage.
