Ruacan cottage is a beautiful restored cottage set in a secluded garden and dating from the 19th century. A five minute stroll from the cottage takes you to the local strand where you can walk for miles along the sand when the tide is out. Narin beach is perfect for swimming and is just a short car ride, perfect for swimming!

The town of Ardara with it's many traditional pubs, restaurants and shops is 2.5 miles. We would recommend hiring a car as public transport is limited.

Clare's cottage is a great place to come for some peace and quiet. A walk down the blackberry-filled lane brings you to a beach that is great for walks when the tide is out; Ardara is a lively little town with some good places to eat; and you are in a good location to explore bea…

Quintessential Irish cottage. Plenty of room for our group of five (2 parents and three adult children) and two rooms -- kitchen and living room -- to hang out and eat, drink, play board games and laugh. Flowers and plethora of small songbirds outside added to the stay. 2km driv…
