“Value, Quality, Oceanfront, Breathtaking Beauty, The Best”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in September 2014

I was very fortunate as a Visiting American Professor at Ireland's National University when an Irish Professor recommended Donegal Thatched Cottages as an absolute must visit place to understand and appreciate the core beauty of Ireland's rugged northwest coast. I will always be grateful for that advice. In September, my favorite weather determined month in Ireland, I spent a weekend in a recently renovated, well maintained, spacious cottage, large living room, kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms downstairs, two baths, plus a three bed loft bedroom, at a cost under $150 per day. Remarkably, I had an Atlantic Ocean view from every room and every level, because the Donegal Thatched Cottages are located at the highest point on a very narrow strip of land jutting out into the ocean. My front door was less than a 200 feet walk down through vegetation and granite rocks to what I regard as the most beautiful beach I have walked on during four decades of global travel as an invited university professor. Suggestions for future guests. Spend some time with an Irish beverage on your cottage porch as the sun slowly descends into the Atlantic Ocean. One day at sunrise walk along the water edge of the incoming or outgoing tide. Then follow the one lane, rarely used, country road that in ten minutes will bring you to a golf course almost completely surrounded by a rock secured coast line, with gentle hills and changing views of a dozen islands, some close, some distant. And plan on driving one hour to the base of Slieve League, where an additional ten minute drive will take you to the peak of the highest ocean cliffs in Europe, with the option of hiking for an hour or two on an ocean bordering trail along neighboring cliffs. I promise you, you will never forget. Joeodo.
