  • Drumnaha

    A really beautiful walk known locally as 'The Honeymoon Walk'. From our doorstep you can set off on the old road from Fintown to Doochary. Alternatively you can walk over the hills to Fintown village.

  • Fintown

    Fintown Railway.
    A lovely vintage carriage and the only narrow gauge railway in Donegal running beside the scenic Lough Finn and Aghla mountain

  • Doochary

    The little village of Doochary with it's stone bridge over the Gweebara river offers a starting point for some licensed fishing, kayaking on the river or a stunning drive to Glenveagh National Park.

  • Aghla Mountain

    Climb to the top of Aghla mountain to take in
    the views of Fintown and further afield.

  • Lough Barra

    Drive this stunning route to Glenveagh National Park past Lough Barra and through the mountains that you see from our cottage. A nice loop drive home is via Gweedore, passing Errigal mountain.

  • Stranaglogh

    The clinic of our fully quailfied Neuromuscular and Physical Therapist who makes house calls available to our guests. She can treat any existing injuries or just provide a relaxing general massage.

  • Glenties

    The little town of Glenties and surrounding area offers among other things great music.
    It also plays host to The Patrick McGill Summer School.

  • Gweebarra River

    Spend a leisurely day fishing or kayaking on the river. Start in the village of Doochary two miles from our cottage.

  • Dungloe

    Dungloe town situated on the coast is a 15 min drive from our cottage and is our main shopping town with a choice of four large supermarkets.
    Also part of The Wild Atlantic Way scenic coastal drive

    Dungloe Donegal
  • Dooey Point

    Dooey Beach.
    A fabulous wide beach with impressively high sand dunes that stretches on and on. Even on a
    'busy' day you should have no problem finding a secluded spot all to yourself.

  • Glenveagh National Park

    Such a lovely way to spend the day!
    The park offers woodland, mountain and garden walks in a most beautiful setting and the castle, coffee shop and visitors centre should you choose a slower pace.

  • Maghery

    Pamper yourself with a seaweed bath at The Maghery Bay Salon and relax with views onto the beach. Explore further with a drive up around Crohy Head. Maghery is a 30 min drive from our cottage.

    Ardara is known for it's production of textiles and is a heritage town well worth visiting. It also has a great selection of pubs offering music and food and is a town which hosts many festivals.

    Ardara Donegal
  • Glengesh Pass

    Travel from Ardara through the Glengesh Pass to Glencolmcille. However, highly recommended is a stop as Maghera beach, which has a wild secluded feel to it and sea caves accessible at low tide.

  • Arranmore

    Hop on the ferry to Arranmore Island at the little fishing port of Burtonport and explore the island. Electric and hybrid bikes are for rental on the island.
