Available to rent through Donegal Cottage Holidays, this one bedroom Irish thatched cottage is situated in a “tranquil rural setting just 2km from the center of Carndonagh, the main town in North Inishowen.”
Carndonagh is a lively gem in the Irish countryside, boasting markets, restaurants, pubs and frequent Irish music sessions.
Brookeside Cottage merges old and new for a relaxing getaway: “The exterior of this building reflects its traditional origins - a classic Donegal farm cottage with newly thatched roof, small windows, and white painted walls. However, inside is a very warm and cozy cottage with modern comforts.”
A small brook runs alongside the cottage, further adding to this countryside retreat’s tranquility.
Inside, the one bedroom home features a king sized bed with plenty of wardrobe space. There is a shower room with a large shower featuring both an electric shower and a power shower.
The main room has sitting, dining and kitchen areas, and a focal point is an oil fired Stanley Range. Outside there is a shed with storage space, a washing machine, and an extra toilet.
There are also nearby beaches at Ballyliffin (Polland Stand), Clonmany (Tullagh Strand) and a Blue Flag Beach at Culdaff. The Five Finger Strand lies a few kilometers north of Malin Town.
Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that Brookeside Cottage is only 10 km from the world-renowned Ballyliffin Golf Club.
