About the Property

Brachan Brae Cottage is available all year round with a minimum stay of three nights.
It is ideally located for weddings in Lough Eske Castle Hotel or Harvey's Point Country Hotel which are both less than a 4 minute drive away. The cottage nestles in the foohills of Bluestack Mountains on the 'Bluestack Way & Bluestack Drive', County Donegal where you get stunning views over Lough Eske.
The cottage is located in a quiet scenic area, approximately 4.5 miles from Donegal Town. This is a bustling tourist town where you can visit "Magee of Donegal" - famous home of Donegal Tweed, Donegal Castle and Abbey, Donegal Railway Heritage Centre. "Donegal Bay Water Bus" is a "must" for all visitors to Donegal Town. This is trip out on Donegal Bay where you can enjoy the history and stories of the locality, hear a few Donegal "yarns" and enjoy a bit of music. There are beautiful sandy beaches nearby in Murvagh, Rossnowlagh, Fintra, Ardara and Glencolmcille. County Donegal has some great golfing - the nearest links courses are :Donegal Golf Club Murvagh, Narin/Portnoo Golf Club and Bundoran.
Sligo is less than an hour away - where you can visit the Yeats Country, Benbulben and Mullaghmore or enjoy a game of golf at Rossespoint or Strandhill.
You can catch a glimpse of the Golden Eagles soaring above the Bluestack Mountains or wander through the old oak woodlands of Ardnamona, a National Parks & Wildlife Service Nature Reserve. Derry City is just over an hour away where you can enjoy a walk on the Walls of this historic City.
Fishing is another great past-time in the locality. You can fish (with a permit) in Lough Eske or why not try some deep sea fishing in Killybegs?
