An artists' retreat providing creative holiday experiences in a beautiful Irish cottage and studio in Donegal

A chance to stay in a beautifully restored cottage with the optional extra of art tuition in the attached studio.

Set in beautiful Inishowen

We are in the centre of Inishowen, in the hills outside Carndonagh, County Donegal with easy access to ancient woodland, the coast, peatland and farming landscapes.

Not far from Malin Head, you can gain inspiration from some of the Atlantic coast's best kept secrets.

Experience a cosy, Irish cottage

Your accommodation is a stone cottage dating back to before 1830. It is perfectly suited to small groups of creative friends or a family of four.

There are two twin bedrooms, a small, modern shower room, a cosy self-catering living area and a studio.

We finished a complete renovation of the cottage in June 2022.
