Two cottages to choose from!
While the two cottages are slightly different in size and structure, with one having three, and the other having four bedrooms; interior fittings and furnishings are very similar in style and decoration. For this reason, we have included them both on one listing, and for convenience, the photos, while actually of the larger cottage, could apply to either one.

Of course, those who are not into surfing, can still enjoy the beach, the sand, and foam, without having to use a surf board. Other water activities that come to mind include; swimming, snorkelling, - or scuba diving, sailing and other types of boating.

The most popular of all is the "The Rosses Anglers, Mary From Dungloe Competition" held in late July. An ext ...
