Joe's Cottage - Cloghan, Ballybofey


Free Wi-FiPets AllowedTraditional PropertyOpen FireCot & Highchair

Joe's Cottage is a classic Irish long cottage located in Cloghan, in the heart of County Donegal. Carefully restored in 2015, the cottage’s interior is decorated in a ‘modern cottage’ style, whilst retaining a traditional feel. The comfortable furnishings, log burners, original artworks and attention to detail make this such a special place to stay.

Countryside Views

Set within its own twenty acres of private land, the cottage has beautiful countryside views against the backdrop of the Bluestack Mountains.  Such a truly peaceful and tranquil setting makes this cottage the ideal hideaway. However, for the more adventurous there is much to discover in the local area.  Cloghan is it the perfect base from which to explore Donegal and the North-West of Ireland.

Irish Speaking Area

Cloghan is a predominantly Irish speaking area with a rich heritage. The area is noted for its stunning mountain scenery and miles of hiking trails in the immediate locality and the Bluestack Mountains. The nearby River Finn boasts one of the most prolific wild salmon and sea trout fishing areas in Ireland and so is a spot much favored by anglers.

Glenties and Brian Friel

From Cloghan, visitors can take the spectacular highland drive to Lough Finn and then onto the lovely town of Glenties, known as the gateway to the Irish highlands.  The Fintown Railway runs parallel on this route and is the only operational railway in Co. Donegal.  The famous Irish playwright Brian Friel once described the shores of Lough Finn as unique, and as grand as any in Switzerland or Minnesota!  

Wild Atlantic Way Beaches

Narin and Portnoo are a short drive from Glenties where visitors will find wonderful, unspoilt, blueflag beaches. Once at this beautiful coast, visitors can explore some of the most stunning stretches of the Wild Atlantic Way, the breathtaking coastal touring route that runs for 2500KM from Donegal to Cork.

A visit to the Slieve League Cliffs is a must-see and the rugged, dramatic coastline of County Donegal has some of the best surfing beaches in the world.

Glenveagh National Park

Donegal is home to Glenveagh National Park, the second-largest national park in Ireland, with 35,000 acres of mountains, lakes and woodland, with Glenveagh Castle at its centre and a highly recommended destination for visitors.

What they say

 

Arriving at Joe's Cottage was an absolute treat.  

 The renovated property in 20 acres of land is delightful and, to stay in the beautiful double bedroom with its own wood burner (essential in the winter months in Co. Donegal) and wall of original stone, was exceptional. The bathroom attached was wonderfully finished.

 The kitchen is a good family size with all modern accoutrements and the lounge, other bedrooms and bathrooms are similarly comfortable and refurbished to the highest standard.

 The views are lovely and whether you’re after “relaxation away from it all" or “having a brilliant base from which to the see the sites”, Joe's cottage is highly recommended.  

 We will definitely be back.
