The property

This detached cottage is situated next to the administration centre in the magnificent Glenveagh National Park, 6.5 miles from Termon, in County Donegal. This welcoming cottage boasts mountain views and is a superb base for families and friends who wish to explore this part of Ireland. Set mainly on the ground floor, this traditional holiday home has four bedrooms, with three on the ground floor and an additional one upstairs. There are two sitting rooms, one with a solid fuel stove and one with an open fire, so you can take your pick of the rooms and relax in comfort after a long day spent exploring the local area. Outside is a front lawned garden as well as plenty of parking. The Glenveagh National Park offers a number of walking routes and is next to the beautiful Lough Beagh and the superb 19th century Glenveagh Castle. The castle offers guided tours and a tea room selling sandwiches and home-baked cakes. Letterkenny, the largest town in County Donegal is within driving distance and provides a number of amenities, and ample fishing, hill walking and golf that can be found in the area. Malin Head, which is Ireland’s most northern point, and the city of Derry, just the border, both make wonderful days out. A delightful cottage for visiting County Donegal at any time of the year.
