The Cottage is located on a quiet back road 5 minutes walk from Dunfanaghy. The cottage overlooks the New Lake which is a wildlife sanctuary. The beach of Tramore is just behind the lake and at night you can listen to the breakers crash onto the beach while watching the sunset from the terrace.

The kitchen has a oven/hob, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge and freezer. It is well equipped with new pots...

Interaction with guests
I live in Belfast which is 2.5 hrs drive from Dunfanaghy. But as this is my holiday home and I have being going all of my life and went to school in the village I know it very well! I am very happy to help with suggestions about what to see, where to go and where to eat. Sarah is my cleaning lady and lives 10 mins away if there are any immediate problems. I am just a phone call away!
