About the neighbourhood
Nestled within the Donegal Hills along the shores of Lough Swilly, Cecils cottage has breathtaking views over the surrounding areas and lough. A peaceful retreat only a stones throw from Stragill Beach. The cottage has a private laneway to the beach and also a quiet raised and decked reading area (See pictures for details). The cottage is in a tranquil spot yet only 4km from Buncrana Main Street and all local amenities. Buncrana Town and nearby surrounding areas have so much to offer for travellers.
