The cottage has been thoughtfully designed by Catherine and Noel Woods who were both born in Ireland but now live full time in New York with their family of four. They always dreamt of owning a home back home and finally, when the chance arrived they bought the cottage on the spot. Outfitting the cottage with finds from their travels, Catherine’s designs and local pieces from artisans nearby.
We spent two nights over halloween mid-term in the beautiful “Cottage by the Sea” and it truly was five star!
The cottage is gorgeous. Decorated to the highest of standards, It is spacious, warm and cosy and has everything you could possibly need and more!
It has stunning views across the estuary and mountains and is perfectly situated to explore south Donegal.
We took a short drive to the Assaranca waterfall, parked up and walked the stunning Maghera beach and caves. We also visited Killybegs and Slieve League.
Ardara is a lovely wee town only 5 minute drive from the cottage. We had great coffee and scones from the Heritage Centre, first class guinness in the Corner House and a lovely dinner in Mickalenes.
We highly recommend staying at Cottage by the Sea and will definitely revisit.
Thank you Catherine,

Beautiful getaway cottage outside Ardara. We spent two comfortable, relaxing nights here recently. Great location to explore Donegal. The spacious cottage was modern, and warm with a well-equipped kitchen, living area, and comfortable beds. A real home from home can’t wait to stay here again soon.
