    “The accommodation was spot on, quirky, clean and in a great location.”

    15 minutes to Donegal and 15 minutes to killybegs.

    15 minutes to Donegal and 15 minutes to killybegs. Very close to local beaches, of which we found many, the dog was very pleased with that!!!! The local people were very friendly too, especially in Mac's bar just a minute walk from property. We will definitely be coming back to Dunkineely soon. Thank you Anita Darren, Michelle and Tara the dog ☘

The property

Centrally located in the village of Dunkineely in County Donegal is this detached cottage.

This charming cottage is ideal for couples or a family to use as a base while exploring the stunning scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Offering both comfort and style, the accommodation has been carefully decorated in a traditional layout with a kitchen and dining area on the ground floor which provide everything you need to have a quiet night in with a delicious home cooked meal.

You can then retire to the cosy sitting room and have a well-deserved rest in front of the electric fire after a busy day.

On the first floor are three bedrooms which guarantee a good night’s sleep, including two doubles and a single which share use of a family bathroom.

Outside, there is a sheltered garden with a patio area, so why not take your breakfast outside and enjoy the sunshine?

This cottage is in a fantastic location, within a minute’s walk of local amenities such as a shop and pub, so if you fancy a night off from cooking you don’t have far to go!

There are a variety of things to see and do from Dunkineely as it is at the end of St John’s Point Peninsula, between Killybegs, one of Ireland’s popular fishing ports, and the popular town of Donegal.

Start with a drive along the Wild Atlantic Way which runs from Malin Head to Mizen Head in County Cork and take in everything this area has to offer; fabulous seascapes, sandy beaches and pretty seaside villages.

Closer to home, the peninsula hosts Coral Beach which has crystal clear waters, making it perfect for diving and swimming, and has spectacular views which are not be missed.

There are many other attractions and areas to explore within a short distance which include the Slieve League sea cliffs, Mount Errigal, Glenveagh National Park and the town of Ardara.

All of this and more makes this lovely cottage a great choice in an outstanding area.

About the location


Killybegs 6.6 miles; Donegal 10.7 miles.

The small village of Dunkineely lies between the popular towns of Donegal and Killybegs on the scenic Wild Atlantic Way and is typical of an Irish village with its traditional pubs, colourful houses and rural community. The village sits at the head of the St John’s Point Peninsula, a 4.3 mile finger of land that juts out into the Atlantic. At the head of the peninsula is a picturesque beach called Coral Beach with crystal clear waters and a lighthouse which looks out across Donegal Bay towards County Sligo and the distinctive outline of Benbulben Mountain in the distance. Dunkineely makes a wonderful touring base with so many attractions on your doorstep, including Donegal Castle, the majestic Slieve League cliffs, Glenveagh National Park and Mount Errigal.
