The property

Abeautiful cottage situated in a rural location, just two miles from the peaceful village of Kilcar in County Donegal. This cottage in Kilcar dates back nearly seventy years, yet has been decorated in a contemporary, light and bright style, and along with its location and traditional homely atmosphere, this is a perfect base for a family holiday. Whether you wish to explore the countryside or coast, you can be sure to enjoy a comfortable holiday when you relax at the end of a busy day in front of the warming woodburning stove. Within this gorgeous Kilcar cottage are three bedrooms, one benefiting from an en-suite bathroom. The light and airy kitchen with dining area is perfect for gathering together at breakfast before heading out to explore County Donegal. To the front of this Kilcar cottage is a well-presented lawned garden where you can lounge with a good book on a sunny day. The village of Kilcar sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with fantastic views stretching over the Slieve League Cliffs; it wakes in the evening when many of the local pubs offer traditional music for your enjoyment. A little further out you will find the fantastic fishing town of Killybegs, where you can spend hours watching the boats unload, or the resident seals frolic in the harbour. Just 10 minutes' drive from Killybegs is the stunning Blue Flag beach at Fintra, which is well worth a visit on a sunny day. This beautiful Kilcar cottage is perfectly situated for you to make the most of everything Donegal has to offer.
