We spent three cosy nights in Railway Crossing Cottage. It was easy to find and it’s just perfect for a couple. We loved how steeped in history and how beautifully restored it is. The location is great, just on the edge of town but really rural once you stroll away from the cottage up the hill where there are beautiful views.
If you are looking to get a feel for what it was like to live in a real traditional Irish stone cottage (but with subtle modern creature comforts) this is for you. The location and history of the place is great, it’s close to Donegal town (€6 taxi trip) and an ideal base to try the marked local cycle routes (outside the door) or to head up the coast.
This is a beautiful little cottage, perfect for exploring Donegal. Gerard was a bundle of local knowledge and told us some wonderful spots to visit. Never realised just how beautiful Donegal is.
Railway Crossing Cottage, which sleeps two in a 4 foot double bed, is located just 6 minutes drive from Donegal Town. This beautiful cottage is full of character and has a long garden that follows the course of the old rail tracks.
