    “This is a lovely, secluded cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay.”

    As others have said, the photos really don't do this place justice, it's lovely. The blue flag beach at Narin is very close by and is absolutely stunning. White powdery sand and crystal clear water, you could be in the tropics, only the wind and the temperature remind you you're not! The nearby town Ardara, has all the amenities you need, make sure you visit Nancy's for food, it's a brilliant place. Our puppy had the best time here, it was safe for him to roam about outside by himself, making friends (barking at) the lovely horses that come by to say hello. The weather wasn't the best whilst we stayed, but we could come back to the cosy cottage, put the fire on and relax every evening. We'd highly recommend a stay here, we only wished we'd booked for longer.

About the location

NARIN, COUNTY DONEGAL

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.
