Welcome to The Barn in the seaside village of Malin Beg on the rugged coast of county Donegal, approx. 45 minutes’ drive from Donegal Town along the Wild Atlantic Way coastline in Glencolumbkille. This recently completed barn conversion offers a relaxing luxurious space, finished to a high standard in which to enjoy your well-earned break. With expansive sea views of Rathlin O’Byrne island and Martello tower, The Barn is close to the Silver Strand beach and Slieve league cliffs. The property is ideally situated for anyone wanting to experience the rugged beauty of Ireland's North West coast, with ample opportunities for walking, cycling, running, fishing or just sitting back and taking in the magnificent scenery. THE PROPERTY - 3 large bedrooms all ensuite - Dining room, seating 10 - TV room - Open plan living room and kitchen combined - Laundry with washing machine and dryer and separate toilet - The modern kitchen is fully fitted out to accommodate the needs of any budding master chef who enjoys entertaining while on holiday. All areas have underfloor heating throughout and the living room has a lovely log fire. Broadband and mobile coverage; despite our rural location, we are happy to provide guests free Wi-Fi and there is now mobile coverage in Malinbeg thanks to Vodafone. LOCATION Located in the village of Malinbeg in Glencolumbkille “Glean colmcille” on the South West coast of county Donegal. Ideally located for exploring the Wild Atlantic way cliffs of Slieve League, the Glencolumbkille Folk Village, the fishing port of Killybegs and the villages of Kilcar, Ardara and Glenties all within an easy drive. The village of Malin Beg is traditionally a fishing and farming community and continues as such today. The local pier or Ouige as the locals refer to it, is still in use by recreational divers and local fishermen. It is a great place to spend an afternoon fishing. The Silver Strand beach is a 5 minute walk from the Barn and is one of the most scenic beaches in Ireland. Locally the history and natural beauty are there for everyone to enjoy either by car, bike, boat or foot. There is plenty to see and do while enjoying your stay in the area. The quiet rural nature of the area has attracted visitors for decades who appreciate the rugged unspoilt beauty and constantly changing scenery brought about by the seasons and flora and fauna of the coastal and mountains area. Slieve League are some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe. Standing at the top of the magnificent Slieve League Cliffs, it feels like you're at the very edge of the world. Glencolumbkille Irish college, Oideas Gael, attracts hundreds of participants annually to its highly acclaimed language courses and cultural programmes. Traditional Irish music played in the local pubs in Glencolumbkille, Carrick and the Rusty Mackerel in Teelin, all within a short drive of Malin Beg. A car is a must. We are in a rural location and the best way to see Donegal’s best kept secrets is by car. STRICTLY NO PETS AND NO SMOKING. We look forward to welcoming you at the Barn, Malinbeg. We are happy to provide tourist information on the area which will help make your trip memorable. More
