Some of these are found in the self catering holiday websites. Some come on referrals and advice offered from friends. The best cottages in Ireland, though are the ones you find, experience, give outstanding tourist services and great food to match, and that you want to return to again and again, in memories and in real time.
Here are a few of those cottages: Moor Cottages in Rathmullen, Donegal can sleep up to 12 folks, offers power showers rooms and has an attached solarium for incredible sunset views. If the more rustic, country look is what youre after, The Barn at Foxhall in Donegal is 5 miles outside of Letterkenny, offers a barbecue dining areaand for those from Lubbock Texas missing their George Forman grills, its got one of them, too.
Northern Ireland gives stays with Lisnagault cottages (Willies and Johnnies) for the self catering holiday travelers. At the expense of sounding like a travel ad, these cottages hold more of the look/feel in the traditional cottage of fictional lore than many of the other self catering stays do.
Ards Peninsula is a very popular travel spot in Eastern Ireland, not too far from Dublin Airport and visitors are impressed with the locals charming and welcoming hospitality to go with the spectacular views the scenery avails to them. The Mourne Mountains are close to the border with the Irish Republicwhich offers a great holiday of walking the hills and taking in the seaside views as well as going into town for shops, sightseeing and dining.
