We have stayed at The Forge self catering cottage every year since 2001 when it was built. It is ideal for touring as it is only 30 minutes in different directions to Ballybofey and Donegal in the south, and Enniskillen and Omagh in the north . The Forge sits on its own , high on a hill with beautiful scenery all around . It is ,however only 5 o 10 minutes away from the local small town where u will find plenty of bars, (The Derg Arms where u can get great value meals ). supermarkets to fill up and take aways . Denise the owner is full of info and very friendly . The cottage itself, is 4 star with the only downside being 1 shared bathroom and no en-suite although there is a seprate downstairs toilet . The downstairs bedroom is also very good for those less able .All in all a great place to stay. It would suit families, or couples .
