Location descriptionDonegal is one of the most scenic counties in Ireland and being on the coast (north west) we have many large sandy beaches. We have the highest sea cliffs in Europe just a short drive from Daisy Cottage, the fishing port of Killybegs where freshly caught fish can be bought most days is but a few miles along the road, there are many ancient sites to explore including seeing an old cross that pre-dates the High Crosses of Ireland, dolmens, castles, and so on.
There are many great restaurants within short driving distances and they vary between casual, family dining to 5 star dining. For photographers and artists there can hardly be a more beautiful place with lots of stunning views. For water sports, fishing (sea, river and lake), surfing, diving, and swimming you will be spoiled with choices.
For walkers it is possible to take your walk/hike in locations where you are guaranteed to get miles of open countryside to explore. Safe, sandy beaches, an adventure water park a 30 minute drive away, a garden and patio area at Daisy Cottage, and family friendly eateries make it an ideal location for the children too.
Friendly pubs & bars, many with frequent live music, including traditional Irish music make it a haven for lovers of a bit of nightlife too.
