about the property

Priced for 2 staying, sleeps 4. Restored by Under the Thatch, with direct private access to the beach.

Cró na Trá sits on the shore of a sheltered Atlantic bay with access to our private, sandy beach. This is where we take our own family holidays. The cottage sits up on the slope above our smaller Mickey's Cottage (also sleeps 4) with huge sea and beach views. Five minutes drive (3km) to shops (7 days a week), and choice of three village pubs.

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 twin, both of a good size. You've got a small sandy beach immediately in front, or larger sandy coves within a five-minute walk. Smart TV with a Netflix account to keep you entertained whatever the weather! Kitchen is well equipped with a few nice extras like an Air Fryer and Dolce Gusto pod coffee machine.

You can arrange for private paddle-board tuition directly from our own shoreline in front of the cottage (with SurfsUp Ireland), or surf lessons and private sauna rental on Dooey beach (walkable).

travel info

You can easily fly by lowcost carrier but we prefer the greener (and nicer) route by ferry with your own car. Ireland is such an amazing country, and you'll find so much to do and see 'en route'.

Note Aer Lingus often have deals as cheap as Ryanair/ Easyjet and fly to 15 UK airports

Flights? Note that Northern Ireland is nearer than say Dublin. 

  • Donegal -  flights to Dublin and Glasgow with Flybe (25 minute fabulous coastal drive to cottage)
  • Derry (Londonderry) via Glasgow, Liverpool (with Ryanair), Manchester and London City (BMI) 1hr. 25 mins. away) - good for Giant's Causeway
  • Belfast International via these departure airports & Easyjet & Ryanair (2 hr. 25 mins.) - good for Giant's Causeway 'en route'

  • Knock via these departure airports & Ryanair (2 hr. 15 min.)
  • Dublin via these departure airports & Ryanair (3 hr. 25 min.)

Sail with either Stenaline or Irish Ferries to:

  • Belfast via Liverpool/ Stranraer (2 hr. 35 mins. away) - note the Belfast route is great with pets as it's UK > UK so no pet passport hassle.
  • Dublin via Holyhead/ Douglas (3 hr. 30 min.)
  • Rosslare via Fishguard/ Pembroke Dock (5 hr. 15 mins and and an amazing drive)
  • (Tip - ferries cheapest Mon>Thu)

customer reviews for Cró na Trá

Another lovely stay at this charming cottage. Kids loved the beaches and lovely to have on our doorstep. We were lucky with the weather and the northern lights (thanks Lukas for the message to tell us to look out). An idyllic spot to just relax, walk, swim, read and switch off. House spotless and everything you need. Beds are hard which might not suit some people and for us with 2 kids, check out of 10am is a bit too early but small complaints. We’ll be back again next year hopefully for longer next time! Thanks for a great stay guys. 5* :) Michelle

Beautiful little beach home with great places to walk and explore right out the front door. Everything was just as listed and the view from the home was spectacular. We spent most of our days driving the coast of Donegal but spent evenings by the fire and walking the beach. This was a very quiet area with very little car traffic. We felt like we had everything to ourselves and enjoyed our stay very much. - Jason L.

Waow! What an amazing property in a beautiful location. We had the most amazing time. The house/byre was beautifully restored and super cosy. The views are even better than it looks in the photos. All the furniture and utensils were like new and very in keeping with the style. Bed comfy, shower great, we made use of the high chair and there was a travel cot left too. Everything really clean. It’s really the location that makes it though. It’s right on the shore in such a beautiful bay, very peaceful, you can walk to a lovely sandy beach where we spent hours collecting shells with our 2y/o. We didn’t want to leave and were already looking at booking again!

5 stars! Beautiful house, spotlessly clean. The location is so quiet and the abundance of beaches and rock pools kept kids and dog endlessly amused. We were blessed with beautiful weather too. No hesitation in recommending this house. - Claire

Myself, Partner and two dogs had the most amazing, peaceful and relaxing stay in this unreal cottage with breathtaking views. Furniture, bedding, cushions, couch all of high quality. Amenities perfect. Kitchen has everything, bathroom is luxe and amazing waterfall shower head. Views from the couch are beyond unreal. Nothing to fault and the staff are so accommodating and friendly. Dungloe is great for everything. Dog friendly (Inside): The Bridge Inn, spectacular food and Keith the owner is super nice. Jonny Paddy Sallys + Packies Bar Get the Ferry from Burtonport to Arranmore, its seriously stunning and fun We shall be back! Damien

We had a great time at the cottage. We were there for four days before heading back to Dublin, and then on to Paris. Everything was clean and the location could not be better. We visited Elliot’s pub, just down the road, more than once. The owner, Danny, could not have been more friendly. We also visited the cliffs at Slieve League (spelling?). Breathtaking. The only drawback was that the seals chose the Northside of the bay to hang out at, but we could see them in the distance! I guess we’ll just have to return and try again. Thanks again to our hosts for a wonderful stay. - Troy

What an absolutely fantastic place, the cottage was as perfect as it’s likely to get. It fitted into the environment brilliantly and was the base to enable us to go exploring everyday. We even met one of the owners Greg and had an in-depth conversation about the needs of wheelchair users. We’re beginning plans for our next visit.

- Sam G,

Absolutely gorgeous cottage, exactly like the pictures. The host had thought of everything, the heating was on ready when I arrived, the shower was amazing, as was the bed - so cosy!! - and it was a beautifully designed space. The guest book was filled with recommendations and helpful information. It was great to be 20 minutes from amenities but also in a peaceful location where you could walk to the host’s fields and local beaches and spend time in and around the Airbnb itself. There were books, DVDs, games, toiletries, WiFi, tv, a fire - I was lucky to get good weather but could have easily occupied myself if I didn’t. No seals this time but would definitely love to stay again so maybe next time. Fab that I could bring the dogs so thank you for allowing them. It was more than I’d normally pay for a cottage but everything was worth it. - Harriet

Really a unique property and location. Everything felt like it was homely and high quality. Wonderful shower and all very clean.

Great 4 night stay. Stayed here with my husband and 2 dogs. Beautiful views. The little private beach was perfect for a daily morning swim. Kitchen is well equipped. Bed Super Comfortable and lovely bathroom with rain shower. You will need a car to explore the local area. So many beautiful beaches and attractions close by. Loved the location and will definitely be planning to visit again. Joyce

Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful stay in this home-from-home. The house itself is well fitted out, beautifully kept and had everything that we (2 adults, 2 kids under 10 and a dog!) needed, and the views were a joy to experience in the ever-changing Irish weather. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here for anyone wanting a base to explore everything that Donegal has to offer. Top notch and we definitely hope to be back someday.

- Gillian R,
2023

This was a return visit to Cro Na Tra. The house is comfortable, the small beach is great for a swim and the big beach (Dooey) is great for a walk with the hound. The large windows looking out over the bay are fabulous to relax and lookout of an evening with a glass of something in hand - whatever the weather! I'll definitely go back again.

- Alison B,

This place was just dreamy! The house is lovely, very comfortable, and the views are great. We ate outside on the picnic tables, swam twice a day, and had to tear ourselves away. Already planning a return! - Katherine

2023

Stunning cottage. The minute we walked in the door we were hit with the amazing view from the 3 picture windows and the overall brightness of the room. It was one of those times where the cottage lived up to the photos and the place felt squeaky clean! Very much appreciate the welcome Prosecco, chocolates and shortbread as well. After a long drive small touches like that are really appreciated. The instructions for finding the place and how to get in were sent without my requesting them and were perfectly clear. Ollie (the dog) had some fantastic paddles (on xtra long lead) and and was extremely fond of our private coves - guaranteed to find no other dogs there. Overall, this is by far the best cottage rental that I've stayed in and the views, location, cleanliness and comfort of the place made me wish we had booked a longer stay! Oh and the plants dotted around the place added a lovely feel to the space. Will defo check out other underthethatch properties! Aoife

2023

A lovely, remote location that offers stunning views. If you're happy to be outdoors and exploring (land or water) then this is a perfect starting point. Stunning Dooey beach in one direction and easy access to the water from the beach opposite. I had a lovely paddleboard with the seals. The accommodation had everything we needed; a great spot for a quiet group / couple / individual getaway. - Ben

2023

Wonderful location! Host is quick to respond and helpful. Fantastic memories made with our daughter walking to the beaches that were stunning. Bay is warm enough to swim. Met lovely people on the beach. Authentic coastal Irish experience in this cozy cottage. Great linens, awesome shower, everything you need is provided. - Corrina

2023

A stunning location and property! The house is very comfortable, cosy and kept spotlessly clean by the lovely Anna. The views for the cottage are beautiful and lift your spirits, no matter what the weather is doing. Plenty to explore in the local area, with great suggestions provided in the house information. We loved it! - Helen

2023

This is a wonderful accommodation. It overlooks (and is located on) the coast. It has its own private shoreline. There is also a lovely good-sized beach a two minute walk away, and a spectacular very large beach (Dooey Beach) a twenty-minute walk away. Part of the cottage is located in an old stone structure which has been skillfully renovated; there is also a modern extension on the cottage with large windows facing in three directions. The views of the bay and coast are beautiful, and the windows on the extension on the cottage take full advantage of them. We loved the cottage so much that it made it hard to leave each day to go exploring in Donegal. UTT were extremely responsive and helpful. We had a minor issue one day and they acted quickly to solve the problem immediately - really great service. There is another cottage adjacent to this one, but they have been situated to give lots of privacy between each other. A terrific, highly recommended property. - Robert

-
2023

This stay was just what we needed. Gorgeous landscapes - tranquil and peaceful walks perfect for us as a family with a baby and the dog. The house had everything we needed to stay in, which allowed us to really enjoy the space and its wonderful views! Will definitely be back. - Kerry

2023

Our second stay in Cro Na Tra. Spent the weekend walking on Narin & Dooey Beach, visited Glenveigh Castle, chilled out in the house whilst the lads went off fishing around the bay. We spotted a seal in the sea on our last morning. The house was spotless, just like the first time. Such a relaxing and peaceful aura about the place. Ideal house and location for kicking back, relaxing and taking it easy. I'll be back again, without a doubt.

- Angela A,
2023

We had a magical stay at Cró n’a Trá - a beautiful property with unbelievable views! Having stayed in Teach Mhici in November we knew we wouldn’t be disappointed but it exceeded our expectations. As we had explored the area before and were fortunate enough to have four days of sunshine, we didn’t venture very far. I swam in the bay every day, we walked the local beaches and just relaxed with our books. A huge thank you to Anna who was so friendly and helpful. We really didn’t want to head home but as she said,”If you don’t leave you can’t come back.” Wise words and we can’t wait to go back!!

- Ruth M,
2023

Just back from an amazing 2 night stay. Place was everything we hoped for and more! Cottage is beautiful, well equipped, pristine and peaceful. We enjoyed it so much we have another 2 trips booked before the end of the year! I can't recommend this place enough. Amazing host! It really is a hidden gem

-
2023

Stunning location and a beautiful home. Views were amazing. Two spectacular beaches walking distance from the cottage, which meant our weekend was super chilled as we didn’t have to drive anywhere. My kids had the best time. Wonderful memories! (We’d also recommend the local pub - my kids loved the pool table!) - Joanna

Such a special corner of Ireland. This was our second visit to Triaghenna Bay -- last year we stayed in the smaller cottage, this time in the bigger one. Absolute perfection; the cottage itself, views, beach and gorgeous coastal strolls on your doorstop... everything about this stay. We stayed with our 9 month old this time and were so comfortable. Massive thanks to the very kind / accommodating hosts - Fatima

2023

We loved the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of this cottage. Beautiful views and a lovely place to relax. Also, without a doubt, one of the best showers in Ireland. GPS led us to the front door down a narrow winding road with no traffic. Great place to stay with all you could want for a weekend getaway. Highly recommend! - Simon

what a property. finished beautifully, and that window!!! You could sit there all day, no TV on just watching the water & might be lucky enough to see some seals. the bed is very comfortable and even the ceiling in the main bedroom was fabulous

Cro na Tra was the perfect sanctuary from which to explore Donegal. I haven't slept that well for years. Breakfast looking out of the wonderful windows over the bay searching for otters and the odd wild swimmer. Lots of walks from the house, down to Dooey Beach, or jyst around the quiet lanes with friendly donkeys around each corner. The house was clean, warm and just lovely.

- Kirsty N,

Beautifully restored cottage with fantastic interior furnishings and kitchen. The views are spectacular. Sitting in the living area, it is as if you are in the landscape. Fabulous for a quiet few days walking, cycling or just kicking back and relaxing. - Gerry

We had such a lovely time at the beach house. Even though it was Christmas the house was always lovely and warm and we really only used the fire for fun. The water was hot and the beds comfortable and I had pretty much everything I needed to cook a Christmas lunch. We did do a few little outings but really, the view from the house is so lovely we didn't feel we needed to go anywhere. Thanks so much for the great stay and we hope to be back soon! - Andy

What an incredible home in an amazing part of Ireland. The views are breathtaking and the house is modern, comfortable yet cozy. It has everything you need for a great time. The walks on the beach are very peaceful and the locals are welcoming. We arrived late in the afternoon and the check in was easy and straightforward. The house has original details that make you fall in love with the irish-cottage style. We are looking forward to returning in the summer time. Thank you for hosting us! - Lucia

2022

We had the most amazing time in the beach house. The location, view and surroundings were stunning, but most importantly for us was the house itself. It was spotless, spacious and very tastefully decorated. It was so well appointed with ample space for a family of 4 with a dog. We really had a fantastic time, exploring the local coastline, especially Dooey beach which was simply stunning. We would highly recommend to any future travellers as you will not be disappointed. Thank you and we hope to be back again soon! - Frazer

2022

Traighenna Bay was above and beyond what we were expecting. The property itself was at a very high standard, more to the level of a luxury hotel's self-catering than your average rental and then some with surprise gifts upon arrival. Everything was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. The bedrooms were also big enough, one for the bed of our friend's large dog and the other for our medium dog's crate for sleeping, they were also really comfortable. Aside from the property, I thin the real selling point that made our stay was the absolutely stunning location, right at the edge of beautiful beaches and walking paths, we were in awe of the views and tranquility of the area. We hope to be guests again in the future and our friends were already planning their next stay before we even left! - Sophie

2022

A truly wonderful experience. we enjoyed a 4 day stay in August (family of 4). It absolutely lived up to the billing....we even caught sight of a few seals playing in the bay on our last night. Spectacular cottage, spectacular location. Highly recommend. Thank you for the flawless stay. everything was so well laid out and easy to find. the beds were wonderfully comfortable and the coffee machine a dream. thank you for making this wonderful property available. - Kevin and family.

2022

What a wonderful spot. Once you are there you will want to leave the car where you parked it and soak up the beach life. The beaches are beautiful, clean and empty! Great for rockpooling, exploring and night walks. Our children had a great time off exploring while we relaxed knowing they were safe and usually within eyesight. Would highly recommend this wonderful location. - Michael

Perfect house in a beautiful spot of Donegal. Honestly loved it here. Perfect for kids and dogs. We will be recommending here to everyone. Hope to be back soon

2022

This property and location are exceptional. It’s a great jumping off point for day trips but we also spent a few days just enjoying the beaches and walks right outside the house and in the immediate area. Our two kids especially enjoyed the independence and adventure of being able to walk out the front door and on to the private beach, as well as the one “next door”— no cars or planning required. The house is remarkably well-stocked with all the essentials and then some. Everything you could need for a family of four. We hope to make it back again! - Claire

This was a wonderful cottage. It was immaculately clean and had all the facilities one could need. It is beside two beautiful beaches. Couldn’t ask for more. - Kay

2022

This house is what a holiday is truly about, this is why we choose Under the Thatch over a hotel. Absolutely nothing could compare to place. The combination of old and new is so beautifully intertwined, with a thatch roof in the master bedroom to a modern kitchen and bathroom. We couldn’t ask for anything more. The view is literally second to none. Since our stay was around the summer solstice, we got the privilege of seeing the sky look so beautiful even at 3am. My only regret is not staying longer. The house was completely clean (thanks Anna!!!) , felt very cozy, and had everything we needed. Beds are very comfortable and so is the couch! The hot water and everything worked well. We didn’t use the washer but it was nice knowing we had access just in case we needed it. We didn’t even go out to eat, we bought food at the nearby grocery store and enjoyed the view from the house. Driving around the house is also very picturesque! Thanks so much for hosting us and we hope to be back again someday soon!!!!! - Jennifer

Einfach perfekt! Das kleine Cottage mit Blick auf die Bucht ist ein Ort, den man erlebt haben muss. Obwohl sich die Sonne nicht oft blicken ließ, war jede Minute an den großen Fensterfronten oder die langen Spaziergänge am Strand perfekt. Wer Ruhe sucht, ist hier richtig. Das Cottage ist liebevoll und modern eingerichtet und kleine Aufmerksamkeiten machen den Aufenthalt unvergesslich. Wer an der Westküste Irlands unterwegs ist, sollte hier einchecken. - jacob

Fabulous house. Spotlessly clean, the lady who looks after it, Anna, keeps it immaculately. She spends about 5 hours cleaning it (we saw her cleaning the 2nd cottage) . The kitchen was very well equipped, and had a good size fridge. Shower was great. Sitting room very comfortable, with log burner and views of the coastline. The views and the local beach are fabulous. Wonderful bird life and sunsets. Anna was so kind and helpful, told us where to get fresh fish and about great places to eat. We stayed 6 nights and loved every minute of it. - Michael

Such a lovely spot- the location is fantastic for a peaceful break away and the views you get from the cottage are truly breathtaking all throughout the day! Breakfast and Coffee with a view during the morning and sat down to a lovely dinner with a view in the evening. Cottage is fully kitted out with all the supplies that you would need and is really kept to a high standard. The hosts were always helpful and reply quickly and I hope to get back again some day

what can i say about this beautiful place.... it was just amazing. The drive down to the cottage was just breath taking. The cottage was in a perfect setting with our own private beach and picnic area where i took my book and chilled out. Thank you for the welcome treats it was a lovely touch. The cottage is immaculate throughout thanks to the high standards of the lovely Anna who i got speaking too. It has everything you could possibly need to cook meals and relax (Only thing you need is the food and drink you are having and maybe a torch for late night walking like we did) Views from the picture windows are unforgettable. I managed to go in for a dip in the bay and cosied up with a coffee back at the cottage - pure bliss. We will definitely be back - Ashley

Absolutely beautiful stay here. The house is even more picturesque than photographed. It was spotless and had absolutely everything needed for a comfortable stay. The area is incredible, we were lucky to get a beautiful sunny day! Can't wait to return, and spend even longer in your house. Thank you! E&R&P

We had a wonderful time at Cró na Trá. The booking system through 'Under the Thatch' was very efficient and user friendly and the information on the rental was clear and helpful. The views from the cottage are incredible, the window seats were the perfect vantage point to watch the February storms roll in. Even on the dullest days the house was bright and very cosy. We were impressed with the cleanliness and the comfort. A lot of care has been taken in creating this space. We would readily recommend this rental.

This is a beautiful cottage with a modern extension in a peaceful calming setting. If you are looking for a quiet space near water this is the place to come. We had three peaceful days here surrounded by stunning light from the bay and the distant sounds of the big waves in Dooey. We also discovered how to play modern monopoly with toy credit cards

Our first trip as a family of 4 (baby + dog) and it exceeded our expectations. The cottage had everything we needed with the perfect location to relax and enjoy the surroundings. We enjoyed lots of walking and sea swimming! Would love to come back. Thank you for a little slice of heaven! - Sarah

Second time at this cottage and it’s brilliant - lovely views and great location to several outstanding beaches - Dooey, Portnoo, Maghera all recommended. The small beach across from the cottage provided ideal water conditions for paddle boarding which we spent an afternoon doing! Very clean, cosy and unique stay and no doubt we will be back! - Adam

Absolutely loved our stay here, the accommodation is such a joy to be in, in all weather. We braved jumping into the sea at the rocks from the end of the path when the tide was in, BRRRR!! It's so cosy and warm with the stove and heating and was immaculately clean when we arrived. The views are spectacular. Would love to come back x Roisin

This place is stunning and pet friendly which is amazing, we hardly left the area as we had everything we needed in the cottage, I loved the mix of the old and new building in the cottage, it really added to the experience! I couldn’t say enough about the place ! Right in front you’ve a private beach and acres of land behind. The stove fire was amazing as well. Book it straight when it’s free ! Thank you @Underthethatch - Tiarnan

A beautiful house. Old mixed with the new works beautifully. The house is fully kitted out that you will want for nothing. The scenery is amazing. We were there when Storm Barra was and it was amazing watching the sea. Wrap up and get out!. Clears the head in a second. A beautiful place to stay and clear the head. The local peole are so friendly. Its those people who make places like this what they are. They can't do enough for you. Cant wait to visit the area again. Hopefully the house will be available. It was beautiful. - Kat

What a beautiful restoration job and extension. The mix of old and new is done really well. The views are amazing and the beach is an added bonus. Very relaxing stay.

One of the most beautiful homes in all of Ireland. It is immaculately well finished and has all of the amenities to help make your stay comfortable. It also offers enchanting views over the bay, and we saw herons, seals, Irish stoats, bats, frogs and robins. It’s a short walk to a sandy beach, and well worth exploring the area. Dungloe is only a 20 minute drive away and has Aldi, Lidl and a great SuperValu. A brilliant home in a beautiful part of Donegal, and we hope to stay there again! - Nick

2021

Wow we had an amazing stay in this beautiful house with a perfect location. The house was spotlessly clean and exactly as shown in the photos on the listing. We really enjoyed sitting with a cup of tea and looking out the windows at the sea, and then having a glass of wine by the fire in the evening. If it’s a clear night turn all the lights off in the house and go outside to look at the stars, we couldn’t believe how many we could see out there! The beaches in front of the house are lovely and It’s definitely worth the walk or short drive round to Dooeys beach as well, it is beautiful. We would recommend this place to anyone and would love to go back and stay there again. - Emma

2021

What a treat! Wow! Pure bliss in an idyllic spot. So peaceful, romantic (for couples!) and just wonderful. I felt really sad to leave. The views are amazing and the house is so cosy, offering everything you might need. The sea air ensured I slept like a baby! The three of us (hubby and 13 year old son) went fishing, walks on Dooey beach and chilled out at the gorgeous bench spot in front of the house. We only had 2 nights and could have easily stayed several more. This house and the location is officially our No 1 spot in Ireland. The house afforded amazing views from the huge windows in the living area. Sitting there all day with a book and cup of tea would have made me happy in itself! The sounds of nothing but the waves of the ocean and birds was so tranquil. Kitchen utensils and essentials all catered for. Huge power shower in bathroom. The place was SPOTLESS. Thank you - Angela

2021

An incredibly special house in the most wonderful location. I waited a year to get here and it did not disappoint, loved every last detail. Just fabulous for a family with small kids (as we were) but I can imagine it being a superb adults only retreat too for some serious rest and relaxation. The views from the house are second to none. The beaches are epic. Only slight criticism is eating out options close by are very limited. We hope to be lucky enough to get back here one day again - Michelle

-
2021

Just back from an incredible break here. The cottage itself is great - a perfect blend of traditional and modern - with everything you need during your stay. The hosts were great, and provided plenty of useful information about the area and tips for places to eat. The most incredible thing is the location though, with some amazing views and just a few steps from the ocean - it’s the perfect place whether you want a base to explore this amazing part of Donegal or just somewhere to get away from it all. Columb

This place is the most amazing place i’ve ever been to in ireland the house itself is so unique and cosy and has so many useful appliances, having the beach 2 seconds away really made the whole trip and the weather was amazing for us we watched the sunset on the bench and then through the window on the couch, I would feel blessed to get to stay here again, a rare find.. and such nice touches around the place :) - Rachel

Seriously cannot emphasis enough how incredible this place is! Just the best place to relax & unwind. The ocean is right on your doorstep- the location is amazing.

Honestly can’t even explain how amazing this place is, go check it out for yourself we can’t wait to come back! - Kirsty

The best features of the house are probably its big windows, overlooking constantly changing, dramatic Irish shore. We have seen all kinds of weather in one day there, and enjoyed even the rain, but the most beautiful were sunsets. We also loved the turf burner! It’s a beautiful and comfortable place. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay for longer. - Monika

We have just returned home from another wonderful week staying in The Byre and have to say it reached all our expectations and more! It was so relaxing and both our dogs had a ball! The house was cosy, clean and perfect for our break! Can’t wait until our next visit!

This cosy cottage was the retreat we'd been needing these last few months. We took our paddle board out on the water at sunset, woke early for a sunrise walk on the private beach and then spent a rainy day by the stove, watching the rain sweep across the mountains and reading by the fire. The scenery is stunning no matter what the weather is like. We already can't wait to go back! - Alex

We had a an absolutely fabulous stay at Greg’s place. We can’t fault one thing from our stay. The beaches are amazing and we couldn’t get enough of Dooey which was a short walk from the house. Greg provided us with enough info on the local town and where to get everything we needed. We even managed to see a seal, twice! Thanks for everything again, we can’t wait to return! - Kelly

What amazing hosts. What an amazing spot. I really would like to keep this place a secret.....but that would be selfish. A special corner of the world. You don't need to do the touristy sh#t just be drop in the sea walk watch the tide go in and out and rest beside the fire. Soul Food x - Ruth

Wow! This was one of my favorite places that we have ever stayed in. It was a lovey escape from the rush of a city, and we were able to relax and refresh during our days at the cottage. When the sun was out we walked along the road to Dooey beach, jumped rocks when tide was out, then came home to make dinner and read by the fire. Truly magical! Highly recommend and will definitely be back! Emma

This is perfect place to get away from everything, relax and reset. We needed a retreat to de-stress and this place definitely delivered. The view from the picture window was fantastic, watching the Donegal weather blow by. The fire provided enough heat for the entire cottage, providing a cosy environment. The perfect get away. - Louise

What a fabulous place! We were transfixed by the views and thoroughly enjoyed our walks to the nearby beach and to the ginormous dooey beach just a few mins away.

The perfect hideaway in a breathtaking rural part of Ireland! The cottage is fantastic for a romantic weekend or a family trip. The panoramic views offered from the open plan kitchen/living area are amazing. The local bars are also well worth a visit, with Packies Bar, Elliots Tavern and Gweebara bar a short drive away or an hour stroll to take in the views. - Sean

We had a super family holiday at Greg & Luka’s with our 4 month old son - the cottage was perfect for our little getaway. The views from the cottage are stunning & perfect to chill by the fire on a winters evening with a wine in hand! We especially loved all the local tips provided and loved both walking and driving around the local sights. I would highly recommend the cottage - thanks guys! - Tory Martin

Fabulous location looking out on the sea, as you have breakfast/relax. Feels very remote but, neighbours close by. Not far from supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Annie, the housekeeper responds to any questions so quickly. Any issues that arise are resolved very quickly by Annie and Lukas. I would highly recommend this cottage for a total switch off from the world but, you have the reassurance of not actually being isolated, if that suits. - Muireann

Greg + Lukas' place is as exactly as it was described and pictured. Everything we needed for a week's stay was provided. Be prepared to drive on one-lane roads to get there. But once you're there, it's so worth it. The place is immaculately clean. The view from the 3 large windows is spectacular. And it is really quiet and peaceful. The hospitality from Greg + Lukas, and their housekeeper, was excellent! We would definitely stay here again. - Coryanna

-
2019

We had a fantastic break at this cottage which is beautifully presented and exceptionally well maintained. The hosts were available if we needed them but gave us space to relax and enjoy our break. There was ample information regarding local attractions and amenities. The views from the cottage were just stunning and simply sitting by the wood burning stove and looking out across the water was a lovely experience in itself. We came as a small group of adults to relax and catch up but I would love to return some time with our dogs and children as the location would be fantastic for them too! - Caroline

2019

We had a fantastic Honeymoon at the Beach Byre. Clean, warm and cosy, perfect for a cold week in November! All amenities and facilities were provided, and we especially loved the living room windows which provide a stunning view over the bay. It’s a great base from which to travel the length and breadth of Donegal - we recommend getting out and about whatever the weather! There’s also some great places to eat in nearby Dungloe, like the Bayview Bar, Doherty’s and the Waterfront Hotel - all are reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. We hope to be back soon! - Daniel

Stayed in Greg + lukas’s place for two nights as we were lucky enough to get a cancellation the night before. The house is amazing in a beautiful location in the sticks of donegal. Perfect stay for a relaxing weekend with amazing views overlooking the wild Atlantic way. Everything was spotless clean and accommodating. The housekeeper Annie popped in to say hello, she was lovely and so helpful. The house is surrounded by beautiful walking trails and beaches nearby, you definitely need a car in this location. Had a fabulous time with my daughter and our dog and can’t wait to return. - Mel

3rd visit to this beautiful beach barn. The views are just magic in all types of weather. Perfect for the pup with the beach across the road and many beautiful beaches a short drive. Recommendation when your staying here is to bring all you need with you regaurding food, fire wood etc. One of the best places i have stayed in ireland. Grey and Luka are very friendly and helpful. Thanks guys. - Jess

2019

The view from the house is unbelievably unreal! It is something you could stare at for hours and never tire of. There is a wood burner and kept the house nice and toasty, but it's super well insulated anyway. The beach is a really small walk and is fantastic for walks and swimming. We brought our Great Dane, who had lots of room and loved the outdoors and the beach. It's such a remote and stunning area and we were so lucky to get a clear night, so we stared at the Milky Way for the longest time. I couldn't recommend this place enough. - Aoife

You will love the peace and quiet, the amazing views, the traditional and the modern aspect of the cottage, the walks and the swimming. A little peace what everyone thinks Ireland should be ..... wild and unspoilt! Romantic or therapeutic, whatever your need may be ...... Great find! - Wendy

This is a beautiful retreat away from any hustle and bustle of a busy town.. The kids had great freedom and we engaged in lots of outdoor activities, beach combing, swimming, body boarding, walking, running, cycling, playing cards and reading .. a true rest!! The house itself is beautiful and you can easily tell an architect had his hand in the making of it!! Claire

2019

This is a wonderful and very peaceful place. We mainly spent the week in the local area, walking along the coast and beaches and to Dooey Beach. A few little trips out, including Fintown Railway, the Rosses and Dungloe. The incorporation of the old Byre into the new build is inspired and I’m sure others could learn a few lessons from this great design. The cottage is very well equipped for a week’s stay and the lack of a TV is a definite bonus. It was really good to meet you Lucasz. Thanks for making things so comfortable.

- P norris ,

This a truly wonderful place. The views are incredible from the property and sitting in the sun, on the red wooden bench looking out on the water, was a simple but amazing pleasure. Our kids loved it - swimming in the bay and flying kites on Dooey Beach. We hope to visit again.

- Charlotte T,
2018

The house was beautiful and in a fantastic location overlooking the beach. We were a party of 4 but arrived to find beds made for only 3 guests. A quick panic as we rooted through drawers and eventually found some bed linen so we were able to make the 4th bed ourselves. The kitchen had everything we needed and the living area was bright and spacious and very comfortable. We missed the WiFi as the data had been used by previous guests but we had brought games and books to occupy ourselves in the evenings. We used the private beach to discover lots of marine life and the bigger beach a few minutes away for a swim. We were able to drive to other beaches and landmarks with ease. All in all, a brilliant weekend in a beautiful house.

- Ross N,
2018

The cottage was beautiful, with the most stunning view from the windows in the lounge area. The place has been tastefully restored and is comfortable. It is in a wonderful location and just lovely sitting in the evening and watching the sun go down across the bay with the mountains beyond. Cant fault it. It has lots to see and do within easy reach. Just walking to Dooey beach is lovely I would love to go back.

- Jane C,
2018

We didn't want to leave... The Beach Brye is a haven of beauty and heavenly tranquility from which to enjoy the magic and wonder of Donegal. A truly special place to which we hope to return when a recharge and renergise is required. The views from the living space and indeed the whole property are mesmerising. The interior has a funky factor blended in with the traditional elements most beautifully. We feel most fortunate to have been able to stay.

A beautiful cozy scenic space in a unique environment a stone throw from the beach! We adored our stay. The large windows allow nature to light up the house , even more beautiful at night when the sky is clear and the stars shine through. A lovely fire , comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen meant we had everything we could have wanted . Owner was so quick to respond and made everything so smooth. Will definitely be hoping to be back in the near future! Thank you so much for letting us stay at this beautiful space - Naomi (Dublin)
