DescriptionThis tastefully restored traditional Irish cottage is located in the lakeland area just east of the fishing port of Burtonport. The cottage occupies a large, mature, private site and has been part of this west Donegal landscape for a few generations. The interior largely maintains the layout of the original 1903 cottage with the addition of a large bathroom and modern comforts such as central heating and satellite tv.
The nearby lakes have won recognition from anglers, while there are walking trails through wonderfully wild and bracing countryside. Closer to the house, those rugged grounds have been tamed to include a landscaped garden with neat lawns and shrubs. Teachín Róise offers everything needed for rest and relaxation in a peaceful rural setting.
Burtonport is a fishing village on the west coast of Donegal, in the "Gaeltacht" or Irish speaking area, and also in an area known as the "Rosses". It is 7km north west of Dungloe, which is the largest town in the area. While in the area it is well worthwhile paying a visit to award winning Lobster Pot, which is a family run pub with a national reputation for fresh home-cooked food and warm hospitality.
From the pier, there is a regular ferry service to and from Arranmore island, with several crossings a day from each end. The island is about 5km offshore, and the crossing takes about half an hour. For Tory Island and Gola Island, a ferry departs from Bunbeg pier.
