About This Listing
This first floor apartment in the heart of Carrick is within walking distance of all local amenties and has been newly refurbished throughout to a high standard with a well equipped large kitchen/open plan living area. A hallway leads to two bedrooms and bathroom with walk in shower.
The nearby Slieve League Cliffs are a hill walkers paradise or just take in the wonderful views that nature has to offer. The excellent, uncrowded beahes of Fintra Sands, Muckross Beach, Silver Strands and many more are close by. Take a trip back in time and visit the Gleann Cholm Cille Folk Village - a short ten minute drive away, and have a look at 300 years of local history, or take a trip on the Nuala Star and view the cliffs while taking in a spot of fishing for those that like to sit back and relax. Why not take a tour with Sliabh Liag Tours to see the cliffs...
Visit Killybegs, the largest fishing port in Ireland where in 1558 it was the last port of call for the Spanish vessel La GIrona which dropped anchor in the habour when the Spanish Armada arrived on the Irish coast during Spain's war with England. While away the hours watching the fishing boats come and go or catch a glimpse of the seals in the harbour. Maybe visit the Carpet Factory of the Killybegs Maritime & Heritage Centre - a unique experience for visitors.
Donegal Town is within driving distance (28 km). Why not visit the castle built by the O'Donell Chieftain in the 15th century beside the River Eske. The castle is furnished throughout and includes Persian rugs and French tapestries. Or drive a little further and take in some shopping in Letterkenny and vist Glenveagh National Park - a Scottish style castle surrounded by one of the best gardens in Ireland, with its lakes, glens and woods with herds of red deer.
We had arranged with Glynis to call her when we arrived and she was there about 5min later. She was very welcoming and showed us around the flat and explained how things worked, what's around the village and how to get the Slieve League. The flat was just as advertised and had everything we needed in the kitchen - she had even left us scones with jam and butter and a wee milk for our tea/coffee in the fridge. The only small thing was that many of the items in the kitchen were not properly cleaned by previous visitors, but that was quickly sorted by washing it before use.
Thank you for your review . I am sorry if some of the items in the kitchen were overlooked . i would have rectifyed it had it been brought to my attention during your stay and there was no mention on departure i am pleased you enjoyed your stay . And hope to welcome you again in the future.
Glynis met us at the flat on our arrival at Slieve League. She spent time with us showing us the workings of the appliances, heating system & television. She told us about the road to the views on Slieve League--and we headed up there later in the afternoon after an early dinner. She also had tips about other places of interest in the local area. The apartment was very well laid out for a quiet rest and the decor is beautiful. It added so much to the peacefulness of this location. The photos on the Airbnb website are exactly what we found the flat to be, but it is so much more when you are actually living there. Loved it!!
Glynnis went above and beyond her call of duty...she was warm, friendly and very helpful - what more could we ask for...then there's the apartment which was fantastic - it's fully loaded with every minor detail catered for. We all had a pleasant stay such much so where planning our next stay here in the summer. Thank you!!
Don't hesitate in booking this apartment!!
This is a great self catering apartment in the centre of the village of Carrick. The accomodation is well presented throughout and is really clean. We didn't get to meet the owner Glynis this time, but hopefully will in the future, because we will be back! The location is excellent for exploring south west Donegal by foot, bike or car.
Slieve League Apartment was spotless,well appointed and a lot larger than what was conveyed on sight. Glynis is a wonderful host and very caring. She got our stay off to a very good start with a starter pack which saved us the worry of having to shop before we arrived. Her facilities are first class and we will recommend her to our friends.
We had a wonderful stay in Donegal. The apartment was beautiful and very cosy. It had everything that we needed. We loved the area and had a fabulous time. We Wished we could of stayed longer.. Will be back for sure! The owner Glynis was very nice and friendly.
