Lovely cottage in a beautiful location
Beautiful location and lovely well appointed and roomy cottage. overlooking the north Atlantic and Tory Island. It had been quite a few years since we had been in the area and had forgotten how beautiful it is. The cottage is well place between Dunfanaghy and Falcarragh but you do need a nominated driver if you are going to sample the excellent Guinness.
We had a lovely relxing few days over the new year and would definitely return.
Thanks David for your lovely review. I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. If you are back again lots of taxis too. Thanks so much for choosing Ballyboe Cottage. You’d be most welcome back any time. Very best regards, Mary

The cottage is situated on the coastal road out of Dunfanaghy and has sea views towards Tory island. Nestled at the foot of Muckish mountain, near Errigle and Derryveagh mountains, the cottage is an ideal base for hiking, mountain biking and mountain climbing. The rivers and coast offer opportunities for surfing, wind surfing, sea angling and diving. With lots of quality pubs and restaurants nearby, you can wind up the evening with locally caught lobster and a pint of Guinness in Patsy Dan's bar. The cottage is situated in the Gaeltach and is an ideal spot to pick up a few words of Irish.
This is a stunning part of Donegal, surrounded by Islands and amazing coastline, all within easy access. This might be your first visit to Donegal, but you may well return!

Golf: Nearby Dunfanaghy Golf Club is an 18-hole true links course laid out in 1905 by six times winner of the British Open, Mr Harry Vardon. It offers year-round golfing. Being one of only two hundred links courses world wide, Dunfanaghy is easily walked but also offers a superb golfing challenge. The course has spectacular views of Sheephaven Bay, nearby beaches, headlands, harbours and the dramatic Derryveagh Mountains. The greens are consistently rated among the best in Ireland and the course is sand-based and free-draining, making it playable all year round.
In Falcarragh Cloughaneely Golf Course is a nine hole mature course with rolling fairways and tight greens.
Only 20 minutes away St. Patricks Golf Links is a 36 hole development comprising two 18 hole links courses, Maheramagorgan and Trá Mór. St. Patricks is situated in the North West part of Ireland amidst the splendour and beauty of the rugged coastline of North East Donegal. The two courses lie amongst the sandy hills of Sheephaven Bay, a golfing links wonderland that adjoins the long established Rosapenna Golf Club giving this area four 18 hole classic links courses.
The Old Tom Morris Links has been attracting golfers for over a century and now, with the addition of the magnificent Sandy Hills Links, Rosapenna is set to become one of the top links destinations in the world. Both links courses provide a true seaside challenge for all levels of players.
