These Cottages are a short ten-minute drive from the village of Clonmany (Irish: Cluain Maine ) in the north-west Inishowen, in County Donegal, Ireland. The area has many local beauty spots, and the Ballyliffin area is famous for its golf course designed by Nick Faldo. The Urris area to the west of Clonmany village was the last bastion of the Irish language in Inishowen. In the 19th century, the area was a frequent location of poitín distillation (a strong Irish spirit).
Although the village itself is the youngest in Inishowen, the Clonmany area is steeped in history, and dolmens, forts and standing stones dot the landscape.
The hills around Dunaff are very popular with hill walkers as you will get an excellent taxing walk for miles should you feel you are fit enough.
Raghtin Mor is just one of the local hills nearby and begins at Mamore Gap, in western Inishowen. Although the early part of the route is along a small path, once we reach the foot of the mountain the path crosses open hillside with heather and boggy ground. Rising to the summit of Raghtin Mor, views from the trig point across the Swilly to Fanad peninsula and beyond to Errigal and Muckish and north to Malin Head are spectacular.
A lunch stop in the cairn on the summit is usual with most walkers.
The return route follows the ridge westwards, dropping from Raghtin Mor to cross to Crock Main and the bigger final peak of Mamore Hill. There are several uphill and downhill sections on this route before we set foot on tarmac again just above the start point at Mamore Gap.
This walk takes approximately four hours to complete.
This is a proper hillwalking and good walking boots, raingear and a basic level of fitness are required, but the rewards are worthwhile for the fantastic views that can be seen. Be sure and take your camera with you!
per week, from € 400

We all had a delightful stay in this lovely comfortable cottage and appreciated the care and attention given to us on arrival and throughout. A great place to explore that corner of Donegal.
The cottage is very well looked after, we already stayed twice there. The hosts are very friendly and helpful - we even had a little welcome-basket on the table with some food when we arrived! They were helpful with questions on what to do and where to go best, too. The view from the cottage is stunning and weather permitting you can sit on the terrace and simply enjoy. Every room has its own bathroom, which is luxirious. As we travelled with kids we were happy to have a washing machine plus a dryer, too. From all our stays in Ireland this was the best equipped house we have ever been in.....
