The property

Approved to Failte Ireland standards.

This wonderfully welcoming cottage is situated on the outskirts of the heritage town of Ramelton, just over half a mile from the centre, in County Donegal.

Comfortably furnished and inviting throughout, this Ramelton cottage makes a homely base for exploring the rugged County Donegal.

With four lovely bedrooms spread over both the ground and first floors, this Ramelton cottage is wonderful for a variety of groups.

The open plan living area is great for socialising together, because while the chef in the party prepares a delicious supper, the others can be relaxing in the sitting area, or chatting with a glass of wine around the dining table in anticipation.

The first floor sitting room is ideal for any children in the party to play or watch TV, or if someone wants to escape for an hour of peace and quiet with a good book.

Outside, the large garden is great for family fun and games, and a short stroll will bring you to Ramelton, with its variety of shops and pubs.

After a lovely walk along the River Lennon, you can treat yourself to a pub lunch and a pint of the ‘black stuff’ before you embark on the short stroll back to your Ramelton cottage.

There are many wonderful attractions in the area surrounding your Donegal cottage, including the beautiful Glenveagh National Park, Rathmullan Beach, thr Wild Atlantic Way and even a day trip to Derry.

No matter how you choose to spend your days, you know you can look forward to returning to this Ramelton cottage in the evenings, to relax and unwind, and have a good night’s sleep.

About the location


Letterkenny 8 miles.

The sleepy heritage town of Ramelton, County Donegal, sits at the start of the Fanad Peninsula, where the River Lennon joins Lough Swilly. Cut into a wooded valley, Ramelton dates back to the 17th century and the distinctive architecture of the warehouse buildings on the quays dominate the village. Ramelton has a colourful history as one of Donegal’s most important ports, with ships arriving from the Carribbean in the 1800s to export linen made in the village. Though quieter nowadays, an abundance of welcoming local shops and pubs still welcome visitors, and there are ample opportunities for fishermen and golfers in the region. The picturesque Fanad Head is just a short distance away, as are beaches at Rathmullan and Dunfanaghy.
