Built in the late 19th century, The Old farmhouse is a picture perfect Donegal Farmhouse which has been sympathetically renovated. Great care has been taken to retain the old farmhouse's original charm i.e. low ceilings and exposed beams whilst providing all the facilities for home from home comforts. The large spacious kitchen has an abundance of kitchen units and is fitted with all the modern conveniences one would need. There is also a large table which can seat up to 6 people comfortably. The house is heated by oil fired central heating but in the lounge there is a multi-fuel stove for those who wish to relax in front of a cosy fire.

A central staircase takes one upstairs to three cosy bedrooms. Near the top of the stairs, a rear window opens to a rear facing decked balcony affording panoramic countryside views. Bedrooms The Master Bedroom has one King Size Bed with double aspect windows with window seats and features a cast iron fireplace. There is also a small ensuite (toilet & washbowl).The Twin Bedroom has views to the front of the house. The Third Bedroom consists of one single bed. Outside Set in a peaceful location, off a quiet country road, the house is situated in central west Donegal some four miles north of Killybegs, and six miles south of Ardara, which makes the cottage an ideal touring base. There are many scenic attractions worth visiting from here, with most within less than a half hours drive. What to see The nearest sandy beaches are the lovely blue flag status beach at Fintragh to the south, or the impressive Maghera Strand at Loughros Beg Bay to the north. Before arriving at this beach look out for the spectacular Assaranca waterfall, and at low tide, you should be able to visit the Maghera Caves further west along this beach. Other coastal attractions not to be missed are the St Johns Point peninsula, the awesome cliffs at Slieve League said to be the highest in Europe, and the lovely horseshoe bay at Malin Beg near Glencolumbkille.
