Great check-in experience92% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Set in an acre of land in a secluded position between Ardara and Glenties, looking over the Owenea river towards the mountains of mid-Donegal, this unspoilt traditional cottage has a log/turf fire and oil fired range, gas cooker, fridge, shower and bath.
