The Cow Shed is a cosy, rustic converted byre situated on our property in a very tranquil scenic area.
The view from the cottage looks towards the beautiful Glendowan mountains and Glenveagh National Park.
Ideal for a peaceful retreat or a great base to explore

The space
The cottage consists of an open plan living, dining and kitchenette area with a double sleeping mezzanine above.
There is a small bathroom with an electric shower.
The kitchenette contains an electric hob, a small combination convection oven, microwave and grill and a small fridge.
Guests have access to a washing machine in an adjacent outbuilding.
The space is heated by a wood-burning stove with fuel provided.
The guest cottage has a private garden, seating area and barbeque to the rear.
As the byre was originally part of a small farm, our own traditional cottage sits on the same site.

If The Cow Shed is unavailable for the dates you are interested in, please check out our other listings.
The Hide is a cosy, handcrafted cabin nestled on a slope at the opposite end of our house from the cottage.
The Birdbox is our little handcrafted treehouse nestled in mature trees behind The Cow Shed.

Guest access
Glenleighan Cottage shares the site with our own house but guests have use of their own private garden at the rear.
There is access to a washing machine and dryer in an adjacent outhouse.

Other things to note
While a car is a great way to see the county, if you visit without one and enjoy hiking or cycling, there is much exploring that you can do from our doorstep. We can provide maps of the locality to get you started.

We live in a Gaeltacht area rich in traditional Irish culture such as language, music and the arts. There is a wide choice of traditional music available in local pubs
Donegal also has a wealth of festivals throughout the year such as the Errigal Arts Festival, attracting many renowned Irish and International artists to the area.

Taking a 15 minute drive from our house will connect you with The Wild Atlantic Way coastal drive.

We moved to Donegal twelve years ago and converted our traditional byre and stone cottage where we now happily live with our two young children. In 2016 Pete completed our second little rental, The Hide, meaning we can be more self sufficient, working more from home while meeting all the lovely people who visit us. We look forward to welcoming you to one of the most beautiful, unspoiled parts of Ireland!
