Bumblebee Cottage, Fintra - Killybegs


Sea ViewsPets AllowedTraditional PropertyCot & Highchair

Bumblebee Cottage is a traditional thatched cottage located halfway up a rugged Donegal mountain with amazing panoramic views over Fintra Bay towards the Atlantic Ocean. This 100 year old ‘picture postcard’ cottage has been extensively renovated and re-thatched in 2017 to create a cosy cottage atmosphere yet with all the mod cons to make it a memorable and comfortable holiday retreat.

Located along the Wild Atlantic Way

Bumblebee Cottage is nestled in the very heart of unspoilt Donegal in a tiny village called Fintra. From the front door it is just a two-minute drive away to the beautiful Blue Flag beach of Fintra Bay. The dramatic coastline around the holiday cottage is characterised by rocky headlands, sea cliffs, sheltered coves and some spectacular beaches including the Silver Strand at Malinbeg.  20km west of the cottage lie the dramatic sea cliffs of Slieve League – a Signature Point on Irelands Wild Atlantic Way.

Traditional Cottage with Modern Comforts

Bumblebee Cottage has an open-plan kitchen/dining and living room.  The cottage kitchen is fully equipped for a self catering holiday while the living area is tastefully furnished and features a large stone fireplace. There are 2 bedrooms– one double and one twin bedroom. The twin bedroom can convert to a double. A single camp bed is also available.

The bathroom has a bath with power shower. In the outhouse you will find the washing machine, dryer, large freezer, two sun chairs and a fishing rod.

A Garden with a View

In front of the cottage there is a fenced-off garden with outdoor table and benches. The views from the garden over the Atlantic Ocean are truly awe-inspiring.

A Cosy Retreat

Bumblebee cottage is as enjoyable in the winter as it is in the summer. When the Donegal rain and wind is howling outside, curl up inside by the gorgeous fire and watch the Atlantic waves crashing below.

There are plenty of board games and DVDs in the cottage to keep you occupied. When the sun is shining, the front garden at Bumblebee Cottage is the perfect sun trap, as it is located in on south-facing hill. It is a great spot for the kids to play whilst you can BBQ local fresh fish sold at the nearby market stalls.

Pets::One at a Time

A clean and house-trained dog is more than welcome. They love holidays and long walks in Donegal just as much as we do! Due to the size of the cottage only one dog is allowed. Please let us know if you are bringing your dog. Unfortunately no cats allowed

Ideal Walking Terrain

The entire region around Bumblebee Cottage is ideal hill walking and rambling terrain. In the immediate vicinity of the cottage, there are numerous winding coastal roads and country lanes.

The cottage also lies close to the route of Slí Cholmcille. This walking route is a 65 km Waymarked Way that connects the main towns and villages of South West Donegal, passing through spectacular unspoilt coastal and mountain landscape, including the lonely valley reaching down to the inlet of Port, and the dramatic valleys of Glengesh and Glencolmcille.

Killybegs

The cottage is less than 4kn from Killybegs. As well as being one of Irelands most important fishing ports, Killybegs also offers plenty as a tourist town. Its growing reputation as a watersports and angling centre is assisted by its location on a fine natural harbour which now features a marina.  Killybegs is well served with shops, pubs, cafe and hotels.

Glenveagh National Park and historic Donegal Town are two day trips that are highly recommended.
