Traditional Donegal cottage by the shore with access to private sandy beach. Sleeps 4, dogs welcome.
A traditional Irish vernacular cottage, completely refurbished for 2017, and sitting on the shore of the Atlantic with access to our private, sandy beach.
Teach Mhiki (Irish for Miki's Cottage) is the result of a substantial renovation and restoration project by Under the Thatch...but, we feel, worth it as it has the most wonderful location...and location is everything. Spend your days fishing or crabbing, or reading in your private cove, then home to the turf fire and fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves.
There's one (Kingsize) bedroom, and a small (double) loft over the main living space. We've added a large comfortable bathroom, and insulated everywhere before we lined it in wood from the loal forest. It's a simple, but wonderful place. Come and enjoy one of the most remarkable and unspoilt coastlines in Europe...and start with your own. See our lovely video of Miki's here
