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.

Where you’ll be

County Donegal, Ireland

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.
