Annie’s River Retreat Cottage

Annie’s River Retreat is a newly renovated two bedroomed cottage, which has its own access to the banks of the Gweebara River and views across to the mountains beyond. The cottage, with all amenities required for modern living, is situated in the heart of the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) area of West Donegal and has tranquil views of the mountains and river and sheep grazing in the field leading down to it.

It is the perfect place to relax and be entranced with this special, unspoilt area of Ireland, particularly relaxing in the cottage’s large living area, with the turf wood burner stove, looking out our ‘picture window’ towards the river valley.

There are plentiful opportunities to explore and experience this stunning area with walks, fishing (angling) on the Gweebara river and cycling routes.

You are also well placed to access:

  • The Wild Atlantic Way (0.7 miles)
  • The village of Lettermacaward (0.9 miles) for groceries, petrol, post office, church
  • Local pubs (1.5 miles), one of which has traditional Irish music sessions on Friday nights
  • The local breath-taking mile long sandy Dooey beach (ten minute drive. Good for dog walking and activities such as surfing)
  • The town of Dungloe, which is the ‘Gateway to the Rosses’ (fifteen minute drive)

You can do as much or as little as you wish in this peaceful rural retreat. So, what are you waiting for?!!
