Donegal Thatched Cottages is a cluster of ten traditional thatched cottages located right on the seafront/beach, on Cruit Island, Co. Donegal, on the Wild Atlantic Way. Cruit Island is joined by bridge to the mainland . The cottages command panoramic views of sea, mountain and off-shore islands, and are nestled snugly into the granite rockscape. We offer a 'turn the clock back' concept, designed to help slow you down, leave you in the right mood to savour once again the simple pleasures of life, like an early morning stroll on a deserted beach, an amazing red sunset or a hot whiskey around a blazing turf fire.

Discover the magic of sleeping under a real thatch roof. Listen to the roar of the Atlantic, and experience the Wild Atlantic Way at first hand. Taste the salt spray on the sea breeze. Waken to the warbling of the lark....

Looks like this is going to be a family tradition from now on. My grandchildren are insisting we return here. The adults are pretty enthusiastic too. The best family holiday we have ever had.

Management response:

Thanks Mary for the positive feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again. Conor

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...

Management response:

It is always gratifying to get good feedback from happy clients. For those interested in walking, Cruit Island also offers world class walks.
