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.

Guest access

The only area off limit is the attic as we keep our own stuff there.

Interaction with guests

As much interaction as needed. Guests have my email adress and cellphone number when needed. Our housemanager Edith will be able to stop by if that is something our guests would like.

The neighborhood

The area is quite peaceful with only 2 holiday homes surrounding it. One of them is a real old cottage as well. The cottage is situated in the hills giving you a rural feeling. Quite close to the highway, so you can hear cars passing by.

Getting around

The easiest way to get around is by car. Free parking at the cottage for 4 cars (you can park in the garden too if required). You can also take the bus, but please check timings (Bus Éireann) as they don't go so regularly. Best stops are Frosses and Ardaghey Crossroads
