Hillside Cottage is a superb 4 bedroom home-from-home holiday retreat located on a hill side above the popular seaside village of Downings in North Donegal. From its wonderful elevated site the cottage enjoys breathtaking views over Downings harbour and beach, Sheephaven Bay, Rosapenna and the North Donegal Highlands.
Hillside Cottage has an open plan design on the gound floor with the living and sunroom areas enjoying superb coastal views. The Cottage is just 2 minutes walk from the village pubs, hotels and takeaways. The beach is 5 minute walk and only a few minutes drive from Rosapenna golf resort.
The 2 double bedrooms upstairs are ensuite, located off a scenic gallery with velux windows. The 2 twin rooms downstairs boast great storage and there is also a large main bathroom with power shower and a separate bath on the ground floor.
The suntrap to the front of the house has 2 picnic benches and a BBQ for eating and drinking outside and a fully enclosed area to the rear of the cottage with a clothes line. There is plenty of outdoor enclosed space if you wish to bring a small boat or your surfboards.
Hillside Cottage is one of our favourite places to unwind, relax and enjoy sea views from the sunroom and we hope your stay in Downings is equally as enjoyable.
