County Donegal

Adeery View Cottage

Price starts from €1,075 per week

A picturesque haven of serenity

Hidden amidst the rugged beauty of County Donegal lies this wee gem – an unobtrusive traditional cottage, the antitheses of modern city life.
Just one room deep, the interior retains much of its heritage with a few contemporary comforts such as flagstone floors warmed by heat pump technology, and the luxury of an outdoor hot tub.

Property Features

A return to the simple life…

An open plan single living room at the centre of the home neatly incorporates the unfussy kitchen, dining, and seating areas.

The interior is cosy and restrained, and features much of the classic old country cottage charm, with traditional small windows, whitewashed rough plastered walls, and a Belfast sink.

At the heart of the cottage is a rustic stone fireplace, filled by an old cast iron Stanley range that warms the heart as much as the toes.

The two bedrooms occupy either end of the house, and feature typical brass and wrought-iron beds.

Outside

The cottage overlooks Lough Adeery. It is secluded away at the foot of mountains and sheltered by a forest with magnificent walks all around.

The grounds are secure for children or pets, with a paved patio area featuring an outdoor hearth for barbecues, and a wonderful, unexpected four person hot-tub to finish the day!

Out and About

Wild mountains and oceans alive with whales and dolphins; fine food and finer hospitality, just some of the attractions of Donegal. Here are some more of our favourites…

Things to do

There are lots of Festivals and Events nearby during the summer months.

The Locality

Ten minutes away from the cottage by car, the harbour at Killybegs is home to Ireland’s largest off-shore trawler fleet, so it’s not surprising that some of the best fresh fish food is to be found here.

The town was famous for its tapestries and carpets, some of which were produced on the biggest carpet loom in the world at the now closed Donegal Carpet Factory. The carpets, known as Donegals, were hand-knotted in the Turkish style.

Most of the fresh water for the town comes from the reservoir / lake which our cottage overlooks.

Historically this beautiful coastal locale was also once an important whaling post, and the harpoon gun so associated with the industry was invented here. Whales and dolphins are happily still in evidence all around the shores.

Donegal town, about ten minutes further away, is a centre for pretty much anything from groceries to fishing tackle. The middle of the town is known as The Diamond, and can get very busy in high season, with great pubs and live music.

You can’t miss the recently restored Donegal Castle, built by Red Hugh O’Donnell in 1474, but there is also a charming harbour which you can reach along the Bank Walk beside the River Eske as it flows into the bay.
The town was invaded by the Vikings in the 8th century and they used it as a port – hence its Gaelic name Dun na nGall, which means ’Fort of the Foreigners’.

It is renowned for its golden surfing beaches, such as Murvagh beach, and Rossnowlagh which is one of Europe’s finest. The European Surfing Championships have been held here on three occasions. Donegal Bay’s funnel-like shape encourages huge Atlantic rollers, occasionally as high as 7 metres (20 ft).
The Blue Flag Fintra beach – long and more sheltered, lies just beyond Killybegs, but much closer along the narrow St. John’s peninsula is the small clearwater Coral beach.

The Blue Stack Mountains straddle the county and its scenic trails are popular with hill-walkers.
The Blue Stack Way walk connects Donegal Town with the town of Ardara further north – a three day hike.

The stunning sea cliffs at Slieve Liag are worth a visit. At 600 metres high, they are nearly three times higher than the more famous Cliffs of Moher. A narrow twisting precipitous road will take you to the best viewing point at Bunglass.

Lough Eske is a small and placid lake about half an hour East of the cottage. It is popular with anglers in the summer months, and is has numerous forest paths around its shores and a fine hotel restaurant.

During the Second World War this area experienced a lot of airborne activity as sanctioned flying boats from Lough Erne in the UK flew missions out over the short Republican corridor into the Atlantic. It was a Catalina from Lough Erne that spotted the notorious German battleship Bismarck out in the Atlantic – and this led to her demise by the British Navy who had been in pursuit but had lost contact in heavy fog.
The word Éire remains crafted in white stones on headlands around Donegal, which acted as navigation aid for those flying above.

Galway holds the limelight when it comes to oysters – but up here in Donegal we think we do better.. let us know what you think.
