The Hideaway in Fintown is arguably one of my favourite Airbnbs in Donegal.
It’s unique, finely put together and, to top it all off, it boasts stunning views out towards Glenveagh National Park.
Below, you’ll find everything you need to know if you fancy spending a night in this rural slice of paradise.
Welcome to the Hideaway in Donegal
The Hideaway in Fintown is a beautifully handcrafted cabin that’s nestled on a slope with stunning views towards Glenveagh National Park.
And, thanks to its views, cosy interior and location, it rivals some of the best hotels in Donegal, on both price and uniqueness.
All kinds of cosy
The Hideaway is a fine base for an adventure (especially if you try our Donegal road trip) both in winter and during the milder months in Ireland.
In the summer, you’ve an endless number of walks and hikes nearby. In the winter, you brave the chilly mornings and spend the evenings tucked away beside the stove.
Fully equipped for self-catering
If you’re in search of Donegal holiday cottages that are equipped with everything from a kettle to a fully-decked out kitchen, the Hideaway should tickle your fancy.
When you enter the cabin, you’ll be greeted by a wood burning stove in the centre of the cabin, an comfy alcove double bed with curtains and blinds to the right and a small bathroom behind the bed.
The kitchen boasts evertyhing from an oven and a fridge to a microwave, a BBQ grill and much more.
A cosy place for a kip
The Hideaway in Donegal sleeps two people comfortably in a very slick little sleeping area (see above) that makes the most of the cabins’ space.
Now, this kind of confined space may put some people off (if you’re one of those who fancies a large bed/room, hop into our guide to five star hotels in Donegal).
However, this is an ideal little place for a getaway if you’re looking for a night away with a difference that you’ll remember for many a years to come.
The patio area at the Hideaway is just something else
For those of you that visit during the warmer months, or for those not bothered by the cold, the patio area at the Hideway is the business.
It’s from here that you’ll be treated to views out towards the mighty Glenveagh. A fine spot to welcome the morning with a coffee or to whittle away an evening with a beer.
