Less than one mile to the Donegal coastline, this homely cottage is situated in peaceful and secluded scenery amidst idyllic Donegal countryside, making it a perfect bolt hole for those looking to spend a holiday by the sea.

This traditional cottage near Narin has been thoughtfully furnished to provide a relaxing atmosphere; it still retains much of its original character which dates back over 300 years with the low ceilings and bog oak features.

The multi-fuel stove is sure to provide a welcoming glow for any weary wanderer in need of solace after a busy day exploring this beautiful region of Ireland.

Let the children stretch their legs in the lawned garden; and in the summer months why not fire up a barbecue and celebrate the peace of the beautiful surroundings.

The village of Narin is within walking distance of your cottage, and has access to two pubs and a shop; take a morning stroll along the beautiful beach and enjoy the fresh, brackish air as it floats across the sand to meet you.

The sights of Gweebara Bay will take your breath away, and stay in the memory for years to come.

Venture out towards the magical Inishkeel Island which can be viewed from the Strand, and then accessed by foot during low tide.

The town of Andara is within driving distance of your Narin cottage and will provide a great evening's entertainment with its selection of bars and traditional pubs playing lively Celtic music to inspire the soul, whilst golfing and watersports are also available nearby.

About the location


Portnoo 1 miles; Ardara 6 miles; Glenties 7 miles; Dungloe 16 miles; Donegal 23 miles.

The small village of Narin lies in Gweebarra Bay, on the west coast of County Donegal. With rolling bog land, rocky shores and low hills, the Donegal landscape in Narin is beautiful for long walks and country pursuits. Narin Strand is a lovely long Blue Flag sandy beach with great swimming opportunities as well as boating and watersports. From the beach you can see Inishkeel Island out in the bay, which at low tide, can be reached by foot. The Narin-Portnoo Golf Club, with its sweeping views of Gweebarra Bay is considered one of the finest natural and scenic 18 hole links courses in Ireland. Close by, and well worth a visit are the villages of Ardara, with an interesting heritage, and Dungloe, home to the famous 'Mary from Dungloe' Festival, while Donegal Town is just a little further.
