    “Pros: the location of the cottage is great, rural enough to achieve the peace & quite of beautiful Donegal but central enough to explore the north, west and southern points of Co.”

    Donegal. Enough parking for 3 cars and a rear enclosed garden for pets. Owner responsive to any queries/issues however not always resolved. Nice fire. Good ceramic kitchen wear I.e plates, mugs etc. Cons: very unclean, even after a second clean by the cleaner. Thankful owner offered second clean, however didn't resolve issue (admittedly we were too shy to say it still wasn't clean when owner checked with us) therefore we had to clean it ourselves.

    Donegal. Enough parking for 3 cars and a rear enclosed garden for pets. Owner responsive to any queries/issues however not always resolved. Nice fire. Good ceramic kitchen wear I.e plates, mugs etc. Cons: very unclean, even after a second clean by the cleaner. Thankful owner offered second clean, however didn't resolve issue (admittedly we were too shy to say it still wasn't clean when owner checked with us) therefore we had to clean it ourselves. Cobwebs and dead spiders on ceilings and doorways. Window sills thick with dirt. Floors dirty. Can appreciate it is an old cottage with rough walls & stone floor therefore difficult to clean however needs deep clean asap. Hoover very weak suction- wouldn't help cleaning efforts. Cutlery needs refreshed- a lot stained & tarnished- not nice to use. Poor fittings, skirting boards broken & bulging in places. Grass very over grown and neglected, would have expected grass to have been cut. Fence & gates rotten and protective wiring to enclose garden torn, small dogs could escape, therefore not fully safe/enclosed. If you need to check emails or work during your stay the WiFi is poor & intermittent. Owner advised WiFi down due to service provider servicing in the area, although it was poor for the full week stay and seemed to reset at 3am every night. Overall: 2/5 Would be 4/5 if it had a tidy up/refurb, and better looked after and WiFi more reliable as it is advertised as an amenity/service on the booking site.

The property

This attractive, thatched cottage is located in the pretty village of Loughanure, midway between Gweedore and Dungloe in County Donegal.

Offering bright and beautiful accommodation, combining contemporary convenience with a traditional atmosphere from its character features, this Loughanure cottage is sure to charm holidaymakers.

This cottage in Loughanure offers well-presented and thoughtfully-decorated accommodation, with four bedrooms across the ground and first floors, along with two shower rooms for added comfort.

The contemporary kitchen has everything you need to create a well-deserve dinner after a busy day out, and afterwards, guests can settle by the hearth in one of the traditional fireside chairs and share thoughts of their Donegal holiday so far.

Why not relax in the airy first floor sitting room, where the unique windows provide lovely, elevated views across the lake to the mountains beyond?

Spend warm days in the garden before taking a short stroll to the pub, or a wander alongside the lough, which provides a haven for keen anglers.

Loughanure is a generous holiday base from where you can discover the many delights that Donegal offers, with the glorious Glenveagh National Park to the east and miles of undisturbed coast to the west, where you will find a bounty of beautiful beaches, including those at Derrybeg, Carrickfinn and Kincasslagh.

Take a ferry to the islands of Aranmore and Tory, both alive with traditional culture and beautiful scenery, or if you fancy traveling a little further, the stunning cliffs of the Slieve League are not to be missed.

Return to this delightful Donegal cottage after a long day to rest beside the fire.

This is a charming thatched cottage in Loughrane, providing exclusive holiday accommodation in a glorious area of County Donegal.

This superb cottage on the Wild Atlantic Way offers a unique Irish holiday that will linger long in the memory.
