The property

This lovely cottage is set directly on the coast, overlooking the quaint harbour of Portronan, two miles from Malin Head, in County Donegal. You’re guaranteed spectacular sunsets at the property as it faces south west over the Atlantic, whilst the surrounding area offers rocky headlands, craggy sea cliffs, sheltered coves and stunning sandy beaches, including the superb Five Finger Strand, Culdaff Beach and Pollin Beach at Ballyliffin. A hearty welcome is waiting at this bright and airy cottage, boasting an open plan living room with a well-equipped kitchen, as well as dining and sitting areas for the family to relax in as the chef in the party prepares a delicious meal. Also, if it’s sunny and warm outside, why not dine alfresco with a glass of something cool in hand? Indeed, Malin Head’s micro climate makes it one of the sunniest parts of the Emerald isle, making this property an ideal summer holiday destination. However, the wild and wonderful winters in this part of the world can also be enjoyed from this delightful cottage – on a chillier night as the year draws to a close, warm your toes by the roaring open fire as you listen to the magical sounds of the dark ocean’s waves outside. With four welcoming bedrooms to choose from, including a double and a king-size double with en-suite shower facilities, as well as a separate bathroom, this holiday home offers comfort and flexibility for all guests. Upstairs you’ve also got two bedrooms and a shower room. Within easy reach are four beaches, Five Finger Strand, Culdaff Beach, Doagh Island and Pollin Beach. For bathers, Culdaff is the safest, whilst the others offer exhilarating walking opportunities. The cottage is also well-placed for discovering the ever-changing Donegal land and seascapes, with majestic dolphins and the magical Aurora Borealis visible here. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or an active holiday, the beautiful walks, cycle routes, terrific golfing, sea swimming, thriving bars and fresh fish restaurants, available to you from Glasheedy Cottage, make it the perfect base all year round.
