Central Location

Glashedy View

Glashedy View Cottage, is named after Glashedy Isle, a prominent barren rock jutting out of the surrounding waters of Pollan Bay, and a visible feature of the area. Situated in the village of Ballyliffin, popular for its well-known golf club and course, the cottage faces spectacular views, with Malin Head, Pollan Beach, Doagh Island, the golf course, and Trawbreaga Bay all in sight. The perfect location for visiting golf enthusiasts, Ballyliffin is well known, but locally, other courses are also to be found at Buncrana, Greencastle and Redcastle, – and all within less than half an hour’s drive.

Locally there is Golf at the 9-hole Otway course, while a short drive takes you to the truly spectacular Portsalon 18-hole course. Many other good golf courses are within easy driving distance. Also available are horse riding, sea angling and fishing along with miles of golden sandy beaches and wooded country roads suitable for hillwalking. All these make this an ideal location for the perfect holiday.

The views of Pollan Strand and Glashedy island are magnificent

I like the open-plan design of the house. It gives a very large, bright and comfortable atmosphere. Just the right size for a family of 5 plus granny. The views of Pollan Strand and Glashedy island are magnificent from the conservatory. Seeing the surfs hitting the beach I find it very relaxing. Being within an enclosed housing estate away from the main road makes it safe for children to play outside. Being close to the beach and Ballyliffin town is a bonus. My kids love walking down to the beach and children’s play area. I love taking the dog for his walks along the beach or explore along the cliffs. On a clear day, the sunset and surf is a photographer’s delight. Took lots of photos of Pollan Strand and Glashedy island. For the golfers there is a golf course nearby. Other towns nearby such as Clonmany or Carndonagh is just a few minutes drive away.
The service provided during our stay is first class. There was a leak in the shower and Madeline was able to get someone to fix it in no time at all. She’s a very warm and caring gentle lady. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Glashedy Views very much and this is our third year. Looking forward to being there

Overall we had a great stay at Glashedy View and would recommend highly

Glashedy View cottage is in great condition and when we arrived was perfectly serviced. The house is very spacious with a nice open plan design and lots of natural light, particularly in the conservatory where I enjoyed the sea view with a glass of whiskey (bliss!). The location is in a quiet estate which is ideal for a family stay. Pollan Strand beach and Ballyliffin town are only a few minutes walk. The beach is ideal for a relaxing walk (or brisk jog!) and has a great play area for the kids. The views of the ocean and Glashedy island are spectacular. Would also highly recommend Nancy’s Barn in Ballyliffin for food (great breakfasts and the chowder is a must!). The area itself is great for a relaxing break with lots of activities to keep everyone busy. Overall we had a great stay at Glashedy View and would recommend highly. Many thanks to Katherine, Declan and Karen for the service provided which was excellent.
