About this listing
A unique cottage mixing old and new, situated on a quiet lane and only five minutes walk from Fintra Beach, listed in the top 10 beaches in Ireland.
DriftWood cottage started out life as stables as part of the Hamiliton estate. My husband and I have renovated the house while also adding a modern extension allowing the house to be the perfect blend of old and new.
During the day you can relax in the open kitchen and living area. Lighting the wood burning stove which is perfect in the winter or summer to create that cottage feel. The beach, Fintra Bay (listed in the top 10 beaches in Ireland 2015) and Clock Tower bar/restaurant are 5 min walking distance. While popular attractions such as Slieve League, Ardara and Glencolmcille all within driving distance. Also the quaint fishing village of Killybegs is 1 1/2 miles away.
While Driftwood cottage is a short drive away from a number of bustling towns it is placed on a tranquil country road. Allowing you in the evenings to surrender yourself to the pleasures of an open fire (a bag of coal, sticks and fire lighters will be left ).

We stayed at the house as a group of 8. Had a fantastic time! Great space with everything you could need. House was amazing and the location so quite but with great access to the beach, restaurant and local town. Sean met us and was so helpful, friendly and welcoming! They had even found a bbq for us and had left it ready to use with fuel and everything. So thoughtful! Perfect place for a Greg relaxing weekend with friends!
Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings. Sean had the fire lit for myself and my family arriving, which was very welcoming. The cottage has everyone you would need for a great family getaway and just a stone throw away from Fintra Bay beach.
Can't wait to stay in Driftword cottage again :))
Beautiful home! Great combination of authentic Ireland cottage and modern extension. Short walk to the beach and short drives to surrounding towns. We had a great time and highly recommend Driftwood Cottage.
We were 6 people staying in Driftwood Cottage and very much enjoyed the stay! The house is spacious, very well equipped and with a fireplace in the living room and the kitchen, feels very cosy! Driftwood Cottage is a great spot for a weekend away! The next pub and the beach are walking distance, shops 10min away by car and slieve league a 20 minutes drive. Roseann, the host, has a wonderful and friendly personality that made us feel very welcome.
very good explainations to find the place. Very happy to spend a few days in one of the only original, contemporary house we have seen (3 architects on 8 people). We would have liked to meet Roseann and family
