Good God this place is class

Shtory folks. Hopefully you’ve been enjoying our recent travel series that’s shining the spotlight on some of the best places to stay in Ireland.

Over the past couple of months, we’ve looked at everything from treehouses and lighthouses to cabins and cottages.

Here are a few of my recent favourites.

Today’s addition is a snug little cottage in Donegal that’s making me genuinely consider looking into human hibernation.

Can you blame me…

This AirBnB is a traditional granite cottage that was fully refurbished for 2018 with a contemporary timber extension.

The cottage itself is over 100 years old and even though it has been recently refurbished, it retains its original ‘underthethatch’ (I’m not sure what that means, but it sounds class) under a modern roof.

The icing on the cake?

It comes with a private beach…

Imagine exploring Donegal by day (here’s a guide to the 22 best things to do in Donegal), chilling in front of the fire with a glass of whiskey by night and strolling out onto the beach in your bare feet with a piping-hot cup of coffee in the morning.

Magic or what.
