Donegal tops the list as the "Coolest place on the planet to visit 2017"
- National Geographic Magazine.

Our stone cottage is a restored farm building ( originally built 1852 ), a modern touch with tranquil decor. It's behind our home yet private, quiet
and tucked away in the countryside. The ancient Beltany Stone Circle and
historic Raphoe makes this the ideal hub from which to explore the magic of coolest Donegal.

That is lovely to hear Maureen, especially coming from a lady so finely tuned to the hospitality industry. Thank you we both appreciate your kind words. It was indeed a treat to have you stay and we both enjoyed the conversations...we need to explore more of these another time. Perhaps you will come back on that genealogy trail in Donegal.
