Dunlewey Lake Cottage: Donegal

A luxury holiday rental in a truly breathtaking location near the village of Dunlewey in County Donegal. The cottage nestles between the foothills of the majestic Mount Errigal and the shores of Dunlewey Lake and it overlooks both the lake and the hauntingly beautiful Poisoned Glen.

The holiday home has been carefully designed to make maximum use of natural sunlight - and to enable the visitor to enjoy the stunning vistas outside. All five bedrooms together with the dining area and the living room enjoy breathtaking views of either glen, lake or mountain. A large raised decking area is an ideal place to enjoy this stunning setting.

Paintings by local artists adorn the walls and elegant staircase handrails are by the renowned craftsman Jonathan Ball. There is underfloor geothermal heating with constant hot water and marble tiled floors throughout the cottage.

The holiday home has a superior crafted kitchen with top class integrated appliances. The end result is a well equipped, modern cooking environment. The adjacent dining area has a large table and seating for up to ten people. The area also features a large wood burning stove and patio doors which lead out to the superb decking area. Cleverly concealed in this living space is the staircase to the first floor bedrooms.

The kitchen and dining area enjoys views of Mount Errigal, Dunlewey Lake and the Poisoned Glen.

The spacious living room has large windows offering commanding views over Dunlewey Lake and the Poisoned Glen. This room has a high ceiling with exposed wood beams and a beautiful chandelier. A glass door leads out to a patio area with sculpted granite furniture. From the comfort of the luxury furniture suite you can just sit and watch the beautiful landscape outside.

There is top class accommodation for ten people in five spacious double bedrooms – with the possibility of an extra 2 being accommodated in a double sofa bed. In addition one of the large first floor bedrooms has a double sofa bed. All the bedrooms enjoy either lake, glen or mountain views.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous break at your house. We felt comfortable right from the very first moment we walked into the house, and I think it even surpassed expectations I had of it from the website photos or description. A wonderful, beautiful, peaceful location. We wanted to stay!   Can I also take this opportunity to say that Margaret and Pat were extremely helpful and friendly, without ever being intrusive. It was lovely to meet them both. Carol Cummings

We had the most relaxing time in your beautiful home. We have rented many homes over the years all over Ireland and we have to say the views, the peacefulness of the area and the hill walking was superb.    We will be in contact again in the hope we can rent later in the summer months if your home is available. PS: Margaret was a gem! Thank you and our very best regards...
