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 weeks, we’ve looked at:

  • A luxurious treehouse in the heart of Kilkenny that I’d move into in a heartbeat (see it here)

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

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.
