Keelogs Cottage is a recently refurbished 2 bedroom cottage set in a tranquil rural location just outside the village of Churchill in North Donegal. The holiday home has beautiful landscaped gardens and overlooks mature woodlands. It is  an ideal location for those looking for a quiet country retreat.

Churchill

Churchill itself is a small village  located 8 miles form Donegal's main town, Letterkenny. The name derives from its location on top of a small hilltop. There are 3 traditional style Irish pubs in the village - a fast disappearing sight in modern Ireland!

Colmcille Heritage Centre

Just to the north of Churchill the River Lennon runs into the beautiful Lough Gartan. Gartan is the birthplace of Colmcille - one of the foremost Irish Saints who founded the famous monastery on the Isle of Iona in Scotland. The Colmcille Heritage Centre on the shores of Lough Gartan celebrates his life and work. Nearby is the Glebe Gallery which contains the renowned Derek Hill Collection of Victorian and 20th century art works.

The cottage is centrally located in North Donegal. County Donegal as a whole is renowned for its unspoilt  natural beauty with superb blue flag beaches, spectacular coastline and majestic highlands.

Glenveagh National Park

Glenveagh National Park in the Derryveagh Mountains  is the jewel in the crown of Donegal tourism. This magnificent park lies just to the north of Churchill an [Glenveagh Nationa Park] d contains 14,000 hectares of lakes, mountains, raised bogland and woodland. The golden eagle has been reintroduced into the park in recent years. Other birds that can be seen include grouse, ravens, redstarts, stonechats and wood warblers. The park has the largest herd of red deer in Ireland and also features foxes, badgers, hares and stoats. The 19th century Glenveagh Castle on the shores of Lough Veagh  is open to the public throughout the tourist season.
