    “Excellent (but remote) location.”

    If you want a complete break with stunning views, then this place is perfect. Dawn, who lives locally (6 cottages down) was there to welcome us. Many thanks to her.

About the location


Killybegs 15 miles; Ardara 16 miles.

The quaint, coastal village of Glencolmcille lies on the western fringes of County Donegal, surrounded by rural countryside and the wild Atlantic. This sleepy village regularly comes alive, with traditional music a regular sound in the local pubs. Located in a Gaeltacht or Gaelic speaking region, Glencolmcille is surrounded by miles of stunning coastline, with the highlight being Europe’s highest sea cliffs at Slieve League. Golden beaches at Silver Strand and Trabane Strand offer safe bathing in unspoilt waters. The perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
