As the listing, from Declan McLoughlin of Sherry FitzGerald McLoughlin, reads: 

"Very quiet, traditional thatched cottage situated in a most scenic, rural and important County Donegal landscape enjoying delightful views over the majestic glacier formed Glengesh Pass between the popular heritage towns of Ardara and Glencolmcille in south-west Donegal. It is very reminiscent of the cottage which featured in the legendary 1952 film, The Quiet Man in which John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara co-starred."

Sounds idyllic, right?
