Mia's Cottage is a restored traditional cottage situated in the north western part of the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula in Co Donegal.  It is located 5 miles from Clonmany Village on the road leading to the breathtaking Mamore Gap. There are wonderful hill views to back of the cottage with sea views over Lough Swilly towards the front. These scenic surroundings make Mia's Cottage a relaxing holiday base to explore the Inishowen Peninsula.

A Warm and Cosy Traditonal Cottage

The cottage was recently restored and now exudes old world charm combined with modern comforts including free internet for customers.. It features high pine celings, sliding sash windows and wooden floors. A solid fuel stove, central heating and high levels of insulation make it a very cosy holiday home. A private lane leads to the cottage and there is large back garden enclosed with an old stone wall. This garden is a safe play area and features a swing and a slide.

The holiday home is just a few minutes drive from three of the finest beaches on the Inishowen Peninsula – Leenan beach, Tullagh Strand and Pollan Strand at nearby Ballyliffin . The latter two beaches are used by the Inishowen Surfing School for Surf lessons. Pollan Strand has a lovely playground at the beach entrance and features a coastal path along its length, ending with the ruins of Carraickabraghy castle.

Mia’s Cottage is within a stroll of Cic’s pub where the pint of Guinness and craic is good. The Rusty Nail pub serves excellent bar food while the local Ballyliffin Hotels are well known for their cuisine.Clonmany Village has a good choice of entertainment.

Scenic Highlights in the Locality

Halfway between the cottage and Clonmany is the wonderful Glenevin Waterfall. A lovely walk following a stream through a wooded valley leads to the 40ft waterfall. There are a number of scenic picnic areas along the route. If you haven’t brought a picnic you can always call into the renowned Glen House Tea Rooms located at the start of the walk.

A short distance from the cottage is the truly dramatic Gap of Mamore. This is one of the highlights of the Inishowen 100 scenic route and is also on the Wild Atlantic Way route. The Gap of Mamore rises to a height of 800 feet above sea level before a dramatically spiralling descent boasting panoramic views of the northern coastline. It is a popular challenge for cyclists and hill walkers

Mia's Cottage is within easy driving distance of some of the main towns on the Inishowen Peninsula including Buncrana, Clonmany and Carndonagh.  The ancient and historic walled City of Derry is just a 35 minute drive away.  A scene of much conflict in the latter part of the 20th century, Derry is today one of Ireland's most vibrant cities. Following the end of the troubles, the city has redeveloped much of its former character and charm.  Mia's Cottage is ideal for those who wish to explore Derry from a more a tranquil base

What they say

Lovely unspoilt part of Donegal, great cottage"

I had a business report to write and needed some peace over a long weekend to get it done. I booked Mia's Cottage on the Inishowen peninsula, County Donegal and it turned out to be a perfect choice. It would be hard to fault the cottage - John and Dolores, the owners, have done a great job in restoring it whilst still retaining an Irish farmhouse feel. It has a wood / peat stove with oil central heating backup making it very cosy at all times. The area is beautiful with hills sweeping down to the seashore - it seems to be a good place to walk with a number of guided trails and, at some point, I shall go back with my wife to do some walking there. There's a pub called the Rusty Nail nearby which does decent food and, apparently, has good music during the high season. The village of Clonmany about 3 / 4 miles away also has a number of pubs, food takeaways including a Chinese and a good sized grocery store. There are good local taxi services for those who like a pint. I took the Sunday off and drove the 25 miles or so to Derry - one of Ireland's most historic cities and well worth a visit. Phone reception isn't great and there's no Wi-Fi at the cottage but there is good Wi-Fi at hotels at Ballyliffin and at various other local spots. I recommend it.
