If you close your eyes and picture everything that’s so wonderful about rural Ireland, then you’re sure to picture Granny Kate’s, a traditional thatched Donegal cottage surrounded by valley views and set close to the village of Ardara – recently nominated by the Irish Times as one of the ‘best villages to live in’.

You’ll feel as though you’ve wound the clock back to refreshing times past as you step inside this charming cottage, with its original features lovingly preserved.  Note the welcoming hearth fireplace and flagstone flooring throughout, along with characteristic feature beams to soothe your senses.

With no TV to distract your gaze, you’ll feel perfectly free to catch up by the fireside to your heart’s content, or over hearty home-prepared meals spent at the homely kitchen and dining area.

When you’re all talked out, choose your ideal snuggling space from two cosy bedrooms, one double and one family room that features a double and a single bed.  Awake gently to joyous birdsong, as you thank your good fortune for choosing such a spectacular cottage to spend time in!

Enjoy morning coffee al fresco on sunny days, in the quaint seating area that perfectly showcases the surrounding glen, and then why not take a five-minute stroll to the renowned Glengesh Pass?  Nearby Andara is bustling and lively, full of traditional Irish music and craft shops to browse through.

Meanwhile, a short drive will take you to a beautiful array of sandy beaches.  Pitch up with a beach towel, a picnic and a good book, and when you’re done for the day, head back to the sanctuary of Granny Kate’s.  Welcome home!
