Seals seen regularly. Pets welcome (fee applies). WIFI, woodburner, central heating, Netflix. 5 mins to village (food, 2x shops, 3x pubs).

The space
The Guardian (newspaper) gave us a rave review - full version online.

"The next day we awoke to flat calm, sunshine sharp, sprinklings of high cloud. We walked outside to a scene that electrified the senses: the distinctive smell of seaweed drying in the inlet below; a wondrous vista out to a long bay that looked like it was lit from within. The only sound was a distant tractor on the single-track lane. It’s for elemental experiences like these that people venture to this part of Ireland."

The cottage is centrally heated throughout and has a large turf-woodburner (first basket of turf included). Every window (apart from bathroom) has a sea view.

You're at Dooey in Lettermacaward, West Donegal (between Dungloe and Glenties). It's probably the most beautiful section of Atlantic coastline in Europe.

Walk from the door to a dozen sandy beaches or head inland for mountains, castles, Glenveagh National Park, or further afield for daytrips to Giants Causeway, Slieve League cliffs, Malin Head or Derry/Londonderry.
