A unique cottage mixing old and new, situated on a quiet lane and only five minutes walk from Fintra Beach, listed in the top 10 beaches in Ireland. A great space to relax beside the fire, cook and enjoy a glass of wine after a day enjoying the fabulous outdoors.

The space

Driftwood cottage started out life as stables for the Hamiliton estate. My husband and I have renovated the house while also adding a modern extension allowing the house to be the perfect blend of old and new.

During the day you can relax in the open kitchen and living area. Lighting the wood burning stove which is perfect in the winter or summer to create that cottage feel. The beach, Fintra Bay (listed in the top 10 beaches in Ireland) is a 5 min walk with further popular attractions such as Slieve League, Ardara and Glencolmcille all within driving distance. The quaint fishing village of Killybegs is just a 5 minute drive for groceries, restaurants and pubs.

While Driftwood cottage is a short drive away from a number of bustling towns it is placed on a tranquil country road. Allowing you in the evenings to surrender yourself to the pleasures of a big couch and an open fire (a bag of coal, sticks and fire lighters will be left ) in the living room.

This is a beautiful, secluded and well appointed cottage. A few miles from killybegs, on the wild Atlantic way and well positioned for slieve league cliffs and stunning Fintra bay beach. Communication with Sean and Roseann was good and check in was very easy. The cottage is perfect. Everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Our 3 children, aged under 7, loved the cottage as well, especially the football table! There is no mobile phone reception at the cottage, but that was also quite nice. It was clean, spacious and a lovely place to spend a few relaxing days. This was our first airbnb experience and it was a very successful one.

Driftwood Cottage is an absolutely idyllic place. We were planning on using it as a base to explore around Donegal but ended up spending a lot of time there as everyone loved it - kids and adults. The kids played table-football and board games and swung on the hammock, ran around outside, explored the river and streams and swings across the road, listen to music and played the bodhran in front of the fire! Wonderfully equipped, stunning light and views in two of the bedrooms, lots of space, very warm, everything you need, friendly check-in and even an instant response when we needed jump-leads! we will definitely be back next year!

The Driftwood cottage was amazing! I would buy it and move there in a second if I could. Roseann was easily accessible and incredibly helpful and flexible. The cottage was very clean and authentic and I loved the furnishings and fireplaces. Very close to a beautiful beach, And the town of Killybegs was wonderful! We loved our stay and can't wait to visit again. Thank you kindly!

Lovely, clean home. Tonnes of character and beautiful furnishings. Laundry which is a huge plus!! Gorgeous area to explore and Sean and Roseann are extremely helpful in guiding you to where you want to be. Perfect for multi guest destination, as it has separate entities for privacy and comfort. Slightly difficult with no wifi and no cellular service at all, but overall, a perfect holiday destination.
