Annie’s River Retreat

Annie’s River Retreat is a two bedroom cottage, with its own access to the banks of the Gweebara River and views across to the mountains beyond. The cottage is situated in the heart of the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) area of West Donegal and has tranquil views of the mountains and river and sheep grazing in the field leading down to the river banks.

It is the perfect place to relax and be entranced with this special, unspoilt area of Ireland, particularly relaxing in the cottage’s large living area, with the turf wood burner stove, looking out our ‘picture window’ towards the river valley.

Electricity, water, oil central heating, Wi-Fi/internet access, initial supply of turf and kindling included plus pets welcomed with agreement (e.g. one well behaved dog). Parties/events not allowed. The cottage is strictly non smoking.

We wanted to thank you for the wonderful weekend we spent at your cottage!

Hi Ann, we wanted to thank you for the wonderful weekend we spent at your cottage! In the house we found everything we needed and the view through the window is simply magnificent. We are definitely coming back in the winter. Was wonderful to discover Co. Donegal and know that we had a lovely place to come back to. Thanks.

M and H,

A constant reminder of our unforgettable time

Thank you so much. We had a wonderful stay. We found a very small kitten in the hedgerow a few hundred yards from the cottage which we are bringing home with us…… a constant reminder of our unforgettable time.

R and J (plus new edition to our family, H the cat)

The cottage is very nice inside, very cosy and the view is beautiful

Thank you for the stay, it was wonderful with my girlfriend. The cottage is very nice inside, very cosy and the view is beautiful – I’m going to miss that large window. If we manage to get time off we will be back over the winter months. Thank you
