Built in the late 19th century, The Old farmhouse is a picture perfect Donegal Farmhouse which has been sympathetically renovated. Great care has been taken to retain the old farmhouse’s original charm i.e. low ceilings and exposed beams whilst providing all the facilities for home from home comforts.  Interior  The large spacious kitchen has an abundance of kitchen units and is fitted with all the modern conveniences one would need. There is also a large table which can seat up to 6 people comfortably. The house is heated by oil fired central heating but in the lounge there is a multifuel stove for those who wish to relax in front of a cosy fire. There are two large comfortable settees and one armchair. A Selection of DVDs is provided for the coloured TV and DVD player. Freeview is also available. There is also an excellent selection of books and board games.The bathroom has a WC, wash hand basin and a bath with a mixer shower and a pump shower. For added comfort there is underfloor heating in this room. A central staircase takes one upstairs to three cosy bedrooms. Near the top of the stairs, a rear window opens to a rear facing decked balcony affording panoramic countryside views.  Bedrooms  The Master Bedroom has double aspect windows with window seats and features a cast iron fireplace.  There is also a small ensuite (toilet & washbowl). The Twin Bedroom has views to the front of the house .The Third Bedroom consists of one single bed.  Outside the property is surrounded with mature trees and the front has a tarmac driveway surrounded by lawn. The meandering ‘Oily River flows nearby.Set in a peaceful location, off a quiet country road, the house is situated in central west Donegal some four miles north of Killybegs, and six miles south of Ardara, which makes the cottage an ideal touring base.  There are many scenic attractions worth visiting from here, with most within less than a half hours drive. What to see The nearest sandy beaches are the lovely blue flag status beach at Fintragh to the south, or the impressive Maghera Strand at Loughros Beg Bay to the north.  Before arriving at this beach look out for the spectacular Assaranca waterfall, and at low tide, you should be able to visit the Maghera Caves further west along this beach. Other coastal attractions not to be missed are the St Johns Point peninsula, the awesome cliffs at Slieve League said to be the highest in Europe, and the lovely horseshoe bay at Malin Beg near Glencolumbkille.  Where to eat out The nearest pub and restaurant is Mary Murrins, a 3 minute drive down the road at Bruckless, or a little further on, the Michelin starred Castle Murray Restaurant at St Johns Point. For more variety, visit Killybegs, where you will have a a greater choice of pubs, restaurants and hotels for wining and dining. The Clock Tower and  Kitty Kellys come to mind here.  What to do  Hill walking, Angling, Golf (at Portnoo or Murvagh near Donegal Town), a variety of water sports, including surfing, sailing, and sub-aqua diving and sight seeing or touring whether by car, cycle or on foot. There is a local Equestrian Centre at Bruckless called Deanes, should you prefer to do some sightseeing on horseback.
