Lake View Cottage

Stay at Lake View and you can be as far from the world as you like. Just 4km from Fintown village and Lough Finn this cosy 3 bedroom cottage has a stunning location overlooking Lough Errig.

The cottage is surrounded by heather clad hills and tumbling streams making it ideal for a relaxing holiday in tranquil surroundings. There are truly amazing views and walks direct from the cottage door. Or just pop across the road for a spot of brown trout fishing. With deer, sheep and a few ponies as your neighbours this cottage affords a restful getaway for the keen walker, photographer, artist or angler.

Lake View is also situated in Donegal’s Gaeltacht Lar (central Gaeltacht) which is located between Gweebara Bay, Gleann Fhinne, and Glendowen. The Irish Language is spoken here and traditions of Irish song, dance and folklore prevail. Music sessions can be found in the pubs of nearby Fintown village – The Railway Inn and Teach Ceol.

For railway enthusiasts, Fintown has a little gem to offer. The Fintown Railway is a restored section of the former County Donegal Railway and is the only working railway in County Donegal. This narrow gauge railway runs for 5km along the shores of beautiful Lough Finn. This setting prompted the renowned international playwright Brian Friel to announce “What is on offer is a unique journey along the shores of a lake as grand as any in Switzerland or Minnesota”
