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 ...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. Gather with your loved ones round a blazing turf fire. Savour the peace and tranquility. Leave your footprints on the twelve deserted sandy beaches within walking distance of your cottage. Children love our cottages because the setting, the concept and the cottages themselves are so different from their own home. In keeping with our 'turn the clock back' concept we have chosen not to offer televisions but have recently added the option of pay as you go wifi for those who need to stay in touch with the outside world. All our feedback suggests that guests really appreciate this as they find themselves doing different things than they would in their 'normal' lives. Cruit Island is a walkers paradise with a profusion of wild flowers and a hidden sandy cove around every corner. Visitors may wish to play the stunningly scenic Cruit Island golf links, absorb the culture of the local Gaeltacht areas, spend a day at Glenveagh National Park,check out Europe's highest coastal cliffs, or learn about folk history at Glencolmcille folk village.Others may wish to climb Errigal, take a boat trip to Owey orTory Island, or try their skill with the excellent local fishing. Mostly you will be quite happy to simply sit out on the rocks around your cottage and drink in the sheer natural beauty, as you relax and unwind. Please note that our prices refer to on-site non sea view cottages. A sea view cottage is available as an optional extra at 60 euro per week or 30 euro per weekend. Use of our on-site turf for the open fire is available as an optional extra at 20 euro per cottage per week or 10 euro per weekend.More

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.
