DescriptionThe Cove is located on an elevated site and has truly superb views over the rugged north Inishowen landscape to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The house has a very large garden which is safe for children to play in. With cot and highchair being provided free of charge and a babysitting service available locally this lovely holiday home makes the ideal venue for a large family gathering or perhaps for two families who wish to share a holiday in this unspoilt part of Donegal.
The nearby fishing village of Glengad has a long association with the sea. It looks out over the Atlantic Ocean with views of Inishtrahull and Rathlin Islands and further out to sea to the western islands of Scotland.

The village of Malin, twice winner of the National Tidy Towns Competition, is a 10 minute drive away. Ireland's most northerly point, Malin Head, is a 10 minute drive to the north. A new cycleway will soon link the local area with other parts of Inishowen and southwards to the historic city of Derry.
