Property description

Your traditional thatched cottage is part of a development of ten self catering thatched cottages nestled snugly into the Donegal rockscape,, commanding panoramic views of sea, mountain and off-shore islands. This year turn the clock back. Discover the magic of sleeping under a real thatch roof. Waken to the warbling of the lark. Taste the salt spray on the sea breeze. Listen to the roar of the Atlantic breakers as you experience at first hand the Wild Atlantic Way. Forget about the outside world as you gather with your loved ones around a blazing turf fire. Walk our winding roads. Marvel at God's wonderful creation. Pick a bunch of wild flowers and present them to a loved one. Go for a 'hole in one' at the stunning 6th hole on our local golf links. Test your skill at kite flying. Try out the excellent fishing. Enjoy the 'craic' in Leo's Tavern and savour the music of your ancestors. Take a trip to Tory Island, the last outpost of Gaelic civilisation. Return home refreshed in mind, soul and body. Spacious accommodation for a maximum of 7 persons. We regret, no pets.


Golf: Cruit Island golf links is located on Cruit Island just down the road from the cottage. Although it is only a nine-hole course it has got many rave reviews in golfing magazines and is widely regarded as one of the very finest 9-hole courses in Ireland. Indeed the different tee-boxes on the back nine make it a virtual 18-hole course. The sea, mountain and off-shore island views from almost every tee and green are truly spectacular. It is almost impossible to come off this course feeling less than fully refreshed. The par 3 sixth hole is a real gem. Depending on wind conditions you could find yourself taking anything from a driver to a nine iron for your approach shot. If you under club you are into the sea ! If you over club you are into the sea !! Green fees are very reasonable and visitors to our cottage are offered a 20% discount.

Fishing: Your cottage offers an excellent base for either the fishing enthusiast or indeed anyone who just wants to try his hand at catching a few mackerel from the flat ledge just behind cottage no. 5. Within walking distance of the cottage you can bottom fish off the rocks for specimen wrasse, spin for mackerel and pollock or beach cast for flounder, dab and dogfish. A purpose built sea angling boat operates out of local Kincasslagh pier or Burtonport, just five miles away, while the game angler has access to 130 small lakes of the Rosses Fishery.........all within a few miles radius of the local town of Dungloe.

Walking: Above all Cruit Island is a walkers paradise. We will give you details of seven wonderful walks, each one starting at your own cottage and returning right back to your cottage. The rockscape, the hidden sandy coves, the winding side roads will all fill your senses and thoroughly refresh you. Very often you will be the only person within sight. Listen for the cuckoo or the warbling notes of the lark and keep a lookout for the rare and protected chough.

The cottage is located on Cruit Island, Kincasslagh, Co. Donegal, right on the Wild Atlantic Way. Cruit Island is joined by bridge to the mainland and is a perfect base from which to explore the many visitor attractions in Donegal. The island itself is a walkers paradise with a profusion of wild flowers and a hidden sandy cove around every corner. Visitors may wish to play the stunningly scenic Cruit Island golf links, absorb the culture of the local Gaeltacht areas, spend a day at Glenveagh National Park or learn about folk history at Glencolmcille folk village. Mostly you will be quite happy to simply sit out on the rocks around your cottage and drink in the sheer natural beauty.

Please note that utilities ( electricity, central heating ) are payable according to usage on departure. Please further note that prices quoted relate to our standard, non-sea view cottages. Cottages with a sea view from inside the cottage have an optional extra supplement of 60 euro per week or 30 euro per weekend.

Other Activities: Bird watching, rock climbing, kite flying
