About this listing

Traveling to Ireland and wish to have a real taste of Donegal? Then Castle Kenny cottage is where you should stay. A 150 year old cosy family cottage that sleeps 5, big garden and patio, fireplace and only 5 minute to the beach.

The space

We would like to introduce you to our real Irish cottage, called "Castle Kenny". The cottage is located in the northwestern province of Donegal, one of the most rugged and beautiful areas of Ireland. This area, with its beautiful mountains, pristine nature and the beautiful coast is a must-see on your holiday to Ireland.

The rumor goes that the cottage is built on or near the remains of a castle. This castle would have been the property of the O'Boyle family and stood in an area called Castle Kenny had. That's where the name of the cottage comes from.

The cottage is a real Irish cottage with recognizable features such as thick walls, small windows, fireplace and only one floor. In addition, the cottage has 2 sheds where the necessary turf, coal, wood and tools are stored.

The cottage consists of a small, cozy living room, separate dining room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The so-called master bedroom is a spacious room features a double bed. The second bedroom has two single beds. Both rooms also have ample storage. The dining room is a sofa bed suitable for 1 or 2 persons. The cottage is perfect for 4 people, but could also be used for 5 people.

The outdoor area around the cottage is quite large. At the front part where 2 cars can be parked. The rear of the cottage has a large terrace with outdoor furniture. Furthermore, the cottage has a huge lawn and beautiful plants and trees. Ideal for children to enjoy playing.

Lovely cottage not far from Donegal town which provided a perfect location to see Donegal. The cottage was warm with added cosyness when the fire was lit. Our two dogs enjoyed the extra heat and exploring the large back garden.

It was lovely to stay at this cottage and get a little view of an earlier time. The cottage was very well equipped, and had everything we needed. It was also very homey and we all felt very comfortable. We also really appreciated the delicious apple pie waiting for us, the thorough information sheets on the cottage and the surrounding area, as well as the fireplace all set up for a fire.

We stayed at the Cottage for three nights over Easter period with our 4 year old daughter and 9 years old Labrador . We would have loved to stay there for two weeks! It is a great option for family escape without spending a ton of money and like living at home. Quiet, clean!!!, comfortable, private, good location, and well stocked with good quality kitchen items,lots of board games for kids ,little library ,TV and Wi-Fi .Close to beaches, and Donegal town only 10 minutes away.Thanks to Edith for a very tasty welcome apple pie .
