The property

This delightful country cottage is situated five miles from Adara in the east of County Donegal. This property is ideal for a family or friends looking to tour this region of Ireland being within an hour’s drive of Letterkenny, Donegal, Ballyshannon and Bundoran. The accommodation is all on the ground floor and has three comfortable bedrooms, perfect for re-charging your batteries after a busy day of exploring. The kitchen is compact and well equipped with everything you need to prepare a delicious picnic or evening meal. The woodburning stove in the sitting room provides a cosy room to relax and read a book or gather together to recount the day’s adventures. If the sun is shining why not enjoy your meals alfresco accompanied by a refreshing drink? The village of Adara is nearby with all its amenities. Enjoy a pint of the black stuff in its home county, have a bite to eat or even try your hand at fishing in the River Ownetocker. Slightly further afield you can enjoy some retail therapy in Letterkenny or explore the Glenveagh National Park. If fishing is more your thing Killybegs can be found in the opposite direction, the largest fishing port in Ireland as well as the seaside town of Bundoran. This is a lovely cottage for you to start your Irish adventure.
