I have a beautiful three bedroom cottage with panoramic views of Falcarragh beach and sand dunes. The premise has a welcoming, informal and cosy feel with a lovely open fire going when it gets chilly.
The cottage has a kitchen, large living room and a shared bathroom with electric shower.
I am renting two rooms which have double beds, wooden floors and large windows. These spacious rooms are comfortable, cosy and relaxing. There are drawers and wardrobes in both rooms and the bathroom is located on the same floor.
Guests have access to their bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. There will be no access to upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to interact with guests and help them with their needs. I will also be respectful of their space.
The area is close to the beach and the mountains. It's great for surfing, kite surfing, kayaking , hill walking there is also a local golf course.
The local pubs have traditional Irish music if you fancy a pint of the black stuff after your days sporting activities.
The area is steeped in history and local mythology so can provide guests a tour and information of the area they wish .
There is three bus services that pass through Falcarragh , Feda O Donnel who has a daily service to Galway, John McGinley , from Dublin and Padraig Gallagher from Belfast all have their timetables on their websites.
Other Things to Note
I can provide hiking, rock climbing and kayaking sessions , just ask me for details.
Smokers must smoke outside.
This was my first visit to Ireland and Conor ensured it was an excellent one. I had to spend most of the day working out of the cabin, with limited time to explore and was perfectly accommodated. I got a lot done and when I had downtime, Conor was kind enough to introduce me to his friends and family, helped me get around and even let me borrow some of his toys :) It was great to learn about the rich history of Donegal from someone who knows it well.
The cabin is a bright, cozy and comfortable place with an amazing view of the ocean and Tory Island. While having a car would help to explore the area, I was happy getting around on foot, and the villages of Falcarragh and Gortahork are both within walking distance. They're small, lively villages with traditional bands playing almost every night.
All told, itwas a highly enjoyable visit with an outstanding host.
We loved staying at this charming cosy cottage and Conor was a lovely host keeping in touch all through our journey to the cottage and meeting us on arrival. The cottage has the most fantastic views from the doorstep out towards Falacarragh beach and beyond - really special. It's a great location as you feel that you are out in the wilds but within easy walking distance of the town which has some great pubs. The cottage itself is very comfortable with a peat burning fire in the lounge - perfect for chilling out. Conor was extremely kind gave us great information about places to visit and things to do in the area. He even took us personally to the nearby beach and showed us the way to Ards forest which was a fantastic place to visit with our two children. There is loads to do in the area and we didn't do everything that we had planned. Glenveagh was a particular highlight made even more special by Conor's excellent walking recommendation which takes you right through the whole valley. Conor is a very easy person to be around and he felt like a friend within a very short space of time. A special place and a special host.
My stay at Conors in Donegal was incredible! Fantastic house, stunning views and the most accommodating host.
He truly went above and beyond to make the experience in Donegal one that I will never forget.
Would highly recommend a visit to anyone looking to experience the real Ireland. Everything is at your doorstep... Walks, hiking, surfing, rock climbing, tradition & the Gaeltacht language. Absolutely loved it! I will definitely be back!
Ich hatte eine tolle Zeit. Die Gegend ist einer meiner Liebsten und ich werde auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.
The view was amazing, Falcarragh and Gortahork are full of kind and wonderful people, and Conor does a fantastic job accommodating his guests. He very much leaves the amount of involvement he has in your vacation up to you, although I would recommend taking him up on any offers to see local sites-he's very knowledgable about the area. He's also very flexible, which was helpful for me and my reliance on public transport.
I think a lot of people who review this listing poorly need to realise that this place is a cottage. Not a cottage-themed hotel or resort- an old cottage. Its beautifully restored and maintained, but it is in Donegal, which does get cold and rainy. If you're not willing to wear socks around the place, you may want to look elsewhere. This comment is not meant to deter anyone, just to make sure you know that its part of the experience.
The cover picture is, in fact an accurate representation of the view from Conor's cottage, and it is beautiful! Moreover, the drives surrounding the two closest towns are equally rugged and stunning.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? It's a great house in a picturesque location and Conor is a social and knowledgable host. A unique AirBnB experience for sure :)
J'ai passé deux jours chez Conor. Il est très sympa et peut vous en raconter long sur la mythologie locale. Sa maison est une maison traditionnelle et vous vous y sentirez comme si vous étiez chez vous. La vue est imprenable! Il vous fera découvrir, si vous le voulez, plein de coins sympas. J'ai rencontré quelques locaux en allant prendre à cette avec lui pour écouter des musiciens du coin, c'était très sympas et les gens de étaient tous super sympa. Les environs sont magnifiques, vous ne pouvez pas être déçus.

I am an easy going, flexible and friendly guy. I enjoy socialising, surfing, mediating and hiking to name a few hobbies. I am a native Irish speaker. If you want to learn a few words I'd be happy to teach you. I have recently taken up surfing and can tell you where to catch the best waves. I have been known to climb the legendary Muckish and Errigal mountains.
My local knowledge is quite extensive and I regularly take friends and visitors on tours of the local area including Glenveagh national park, Falcarragh and Dun Lewey. I genuinely take pride in sharing stories, myths and history about this beautiful area.
I would be happy to recommend any activities for you and I will do my very best to ensure your stay is memorable.
