This luxury 3 bedroom holiday cottage is located within easy walking distance of the centre of Ballyliffin village and Pollan beach. Aughrim Cottage is elegantly furnished and fully equipped to ensure you have a memorable holiday in one of Inishowen's most popular seaside villages. The superb Ballyliffin Links Golf Course is only a 3min drive away and there is a wealth of attractions in the immediate vicinity.
Aughrim Cottage is ideal as a touring base for the Inishowen peninsula and indeed the entire north coast of Ireland via the car ferries at Greencastle and Rathmullan (mid-June to mid-September)
Ballyliffin has a full 36 holes to savour – two outstanding and contrasting links courses: the classic Old Links and the magnificent new Glashedy Links. Nick Faldo, a previous Irish and British Open Champion, immediately fell under the spell, but then he hadn’t encountered anything quite like Ballyliffin before.
Nestling in the idyllic surroundings of the Inishowen Peninsula and near the entrance to Lough Foyle Greencastle is renowned for its hospitality and tranquillity. The Greencastle Golf Club is bordered on one side by the waters of Lough Foyle, with panoramic views across the mountains of Derry, while on the other, equally spectacular views up into the hills of Co. Donegal.
