“The best place to sleep in Donegal." Eli Gothill
The Swallow's Nest
So named after the swallows which nested here year upon year until renovation work started in October 2014, this compact and tastefully renovated accommodation started life as a humble cow byre. It is approximately 200 years old, and stands apart from the main cottage with its own private driveway, entrance and deck. It overlooks a grassy meadow dotted with sheep.
The unit consists of one central living space with kitchen area, simple furniture and a bathroom. The king size bed is up on a sleeping mezzanine which affords spectacular views over the meadow and hills beyond.
Heating is from a wood-burning stove with small portable radiant heater for occasional use. The kitchen comprises a sink, gas hob, small electric oven and fridge.
The Swallow's Nest is essentially for couples and offers a truly romantic and peaceful retreat - somewhere where you can literally ‘shed your life' and relax.
It is unsuitable for children and infants because of several safety concerns, such as the height of the mezzanine.
It comes with all linen, towels, basic toiletries, freshly baked scones and some cooking essentials. The basket of scones, butter and jam are a welcome gift and are not supplied on a daily basis, unless requested and for a small extra charge. A towel refresh/drying service is offered for those guests staying longer than a few days.
The shed has its own driveway and entrance. Parking is solely for guest's use. The meadow in front of the shed is also for guests, but the cottage garden is reserved for the owner. There is an outdoor wooden deck, folding table and two chairs with a barbecue which is also part of the accomodation.
