Last minute winter weekend break...Cavaghan's Cottage provided both the perfect location and facilities for a very cosy weekend. Lots of beaches and nearby great restaurants. The endless supply of coal and turf and the luxurious facilities at Cavanagh's will surely bring us back. Thanks Hughie!

Cavanagh's Cottage is located in Tremore Gleneely and sits on the Inishowen Peninsula in the northeast of County Donegal which is perhaps the great overlooked treasure of the Irish landscape, offering a diverse and visually exciting terrain, where the views usually encompass the waters of the loughs or the Atlantic waves.
