Carolina Cottage - Buncrana


Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen Fire

Carolina Cottage is a lovely 2 bedroom holiday home with an idyllic setting overlooking Porthaw Beach on the shores of Lough Swilly in North Donegal.  With a location just 2 km north of Buncrana Town this cottage really has the best of both worlds  - a tranquil beach side setting yet with all the benefits of a vibrant modern town a short distance away. Not only that, but it is also a central base to explore the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula and the historic Walled City of Derry.

Idyllic Beach Front Setting

Sheltered by mature trees to the rear the Carolina Cottage is just 40 metres from the golden sandy beach at Porthaw. The conservatory in the holiday home enjoys panoramic views over the beach towards Lough Swilly – “The Lake of Shadows”. These views can also be enjoyed from the front garden and patio area. The cottage is just a few minutes walk away from the Napoleonic era fort at Ned’s Point and also from a local kayaking centre.

If you don’t fancy driving to Buncrana you can also take the beautiful coastal path into the town. Buncrana itself is the largest town in the picturesque Inishowen Peninsula. It has a full range of tourist amenities, as well as fine restaurants and lively bars. The town boasts a leisure centre and swimming pool, golf course, pitch and putt, play park, clean safe sandy beaches and many activities for children

What they say

I travel a lot so I'm always looking for interesting places to stay - anything to avoid another carbon copy hotel - and this has got to be one of the best local travel sites I've seen. Plenty of detail, tons of photos, excellent location info and clear pricing - everything I need to make an informed call. Great job and I'll be recommending the site to anyone else I know who's travelling in Donegal.
