About the property

3 Bedrooms (all ensuite), Sleeps 8 + 2 on Sofa Bed & Baby Cot/Crib in each house

Description:

Inverbeg Cottages are 2 luxurious waterfront holiday homes located 3 miles from the popular seaside village of Downings. The houses are on 3 acres in a tranquil location directly overlooking Mulroy Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, with access to their own private pebble beach.

Each house has its own barbeque and private patio for barbequing freshly caught fish or just relaxing while enjoying the magnificent sea views. Sit on the patio to the front of the house for breakfast & enjoy the panoramic views over Mulroy Bay. Watch the seals on the rocks and the fishing boats go past with their fresh catch heading to Downings a few times each day.

A path leads directly to the pebble beach and a jetty, which is superb for launching boats. There is a large deck, ideal for sunbathing or just enjoying the peace and tranquility of the magnificent sea views.

The cottages each have access to a superb Finnish barbeque hut that is a cozy retreat and a prefect escape from the elements. The hut features a barbeque grill in the center and a chimney out through the roof and seats 10-12 people.

Accommodation:

Each house has three ensuite bedrooms, two with ocean views, a kitchen/dining room, lounge/family room and sun room all with panoramic ocean views.

1 house sleeps 9 in beds and 2 on a sofa bed. The second house sleeps 8 in beds and 2 on a sofa bed.

The houses also feature a utility room and a separate toilet downstairs. The kitchen/dining room features a fully fitted modern kitchen with integrated appliances leading to dining area with a table and chairs and a modern fireplace. A door off the dining area leads to a large tastefully furnished sunroom that opens onto the patio area, which is equipped with a barbeque and patio furniture for complete relaxation on those long summer evenings.

The lounge/family room has a stone built open fire, Satellite TV with DVD player, a selection of games and books for entertaining children and free WiFi. It has comfortable seating and a double sofa bed.

The Area:

The area has superb beaches and has fine views across Sheephaven Bay to the Ards peninsula (with the remains of Ard House on the point of the peninsula) and the distant flat-topped peak of Muckish. It has a long standing tradition of tweed making and fishing. Downings is traditionally an Irish speaking area where you are likely to hear Irish spoken but English is the language generally in use. Sheephaven Bay has interesting walks and drives and is ideal for water sports and deep-sea angling. The Rosapenna Championship Links Golf Course is just half a mile from Downings village.

The rugged landscape of the Rosguil Peninsula also provides the basis for many activities for tourists to enjoy, including miles of golden sandy beaches and water sports such as water Skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, deep-sea diving, sea angling & boat charters. Other activities include, horse riding, pitch and putt and hill walking.

Downings has a newly built modern leisure center called Magherabeg Leisure Center, which is open to the public and features a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, and gym. For gifts and souvenirs pay a visit to McNutt’s tweed shop and factory outlet or Joy’s of Carrigart. McNutts also have an excellent coffee shop beside the tweed factory.

Within a half hour drive of the holiday cottage there are numerous places to visit. You have Glenveagh National Park, Ards Forest Park, Glen Lough, Lough Salt, Lakeside center at Dunlewy, all of which has something for everyone. Nearby in Dunfanaghy there is the Workhouse famine museum. Churchill has the famous Glebe House & Gallery and Colmcille Heritage Centre. Letterkenny has all the amenities you would expect to find in a large town - cinema, museum, theatre, leisure centres, art galleries and excellent shopping centres. A day trip to Tory Island is highly recommended.

We didn't want to leave the place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for a random weekend away and what a magical weekend we had. This place is simply stunning! The views are breathtaking from when we woke up till sunset, we just couldn't get enough! The property was well appointed with all mod cons and very clean. The bed was very comfortable as well. The owners allowed us to have access to an unusual Finnish barbecue hut located on the property near the waters edge and we had a fantastic cozy night in there cooking steaks and sheltering from the wind. We hope to come back in the summer!

Short 3 day stay grew into a week

  • 5 of 5

Initially my wife and I had planned just a couple of day break. However the tranquil location with simply stunning views over Mulroy Bay, and this tastefully appointed, modern cottage - equipped with every convenience & comfort you might require, seduced us into spending a week.

A wonderful relaxing week, in a magical setting; and also being sailors with sailing dinghy in tow, the cottage's own direct access to the beach topped the week's stay.

We plan to come back!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! ALMOST TOO BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

We had a quick weekend stay at the cottages and it was absolutely amazing. From the amazing accommodations to the most beautiful views you will ever see, this will be a vacation you will never forget. Everything and everyone (from the sheep to the bartenders at the Singing Pub) are a delight.

Thanks for having us!
