WONDERFUL TRADITIONAL THATCHED IRISH COTTAGE

County Donegal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Superb Thatched 200 year old Cottage set in 7 acres

This traditional cottage, dating from the late 1700s has been lovingly restored to the highest standards. It was re- thatched in the traditional Donegal way from flax (which Irish linen is made from) and sits in nearly seven acres running down to its own river. The UVPC front door was taken off and a traditional Irish half door was handmade and installed allowing lovely country views from the kitchen. There are two bedrooms, one with a king size (5ft) bed based on a traditional Irish style dating from 1918 and a twin room both with pocket sprung mattress, walnut floors and beautiful, fine quality linen. The bathroom is tiled in pale pink marble, with underfloor heating, 8' drenching shower, free standing slipper bath and heated towel rail. Robes and fluffy towels are provided. The kitchen/living room has an open fire, two arm chairs, a handmade table and four chairs and a gorgeous pink and oak dresser. There is a Rangemaster cooker, with ceramic hob and Miele appliances.

A beautifully restored cottage with many lovely luxurious touches near some wonderful scenery. We have planted 1,500 indigenous Irish trees in the grounds.

Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5
We loved our accommodations at Honey Cottage. We felt priviledged to be able to stay in this wonderfully restored thatch cottage. It was obvious to us that the owner put a lot of time, thought and money in creating a beautiful, upscale vacation respite in the middle of beautiful Donegal County.
The property is everything as described.
Very importantly, we received an excellent response to our inquiry at 9:00 pm in the evening when we thought the heating system was not working properly. The local caretaker of the property picked up our phone call and called upon the very kind gentleman who we learned was responsible for much of the restoration of the the cottage. Within 20 minutes he arrived (in a rain downpour) and patiently pointed out how the heating system worked. The fault was not in the heating system at all, but was only our unfamiliarity with how it worked.
Our memories include cooking the traditional irish breakfast in this quaint and well applianced kitchen, the wonderful warm fireplace just off the kitchen, beautiful views from the kitchen half door and the peaceful setting. We enjoyed sitting outside looking at the countryside and the ocean in the distance.
Staying at Honey Cottage was the highlight of our first, but not last visit to Ireland.
