Self catering holiday cottage rentals in Narin, Donegal, Ireland

The small village of Narin can be found on the gorgeous Gweebarra Bay, with spectacular and sweeping views over the North Atlantic Ocean. It is located on the western coast of County Donegal in the northern part of the Republic of Ireland, and with rugged hills and cliffs, lakes, rolling marshlands and panoramic views of the sea, it makes an excellent choice of village if wishing to stay in a small yet charming settlement In Ireland. Narin’s best asset has to be its long stretch of golden sandy beach which helps make this an idyllic spot for an Irish cottage holiday.

What Narin offers for Cottage Breaks


This stunning sandy beach is called Narin Strand. It is around two kilometres long which means that long, romantic walks can be taken up and down this sandy stretch of natural beauty, which is perfect if you are visiting Narin with your other half. There is also an island called Inishkeel which is only 250 metres from the mainland. Boats are not needed to reach Inishkeel as during low tide, visitors can just cross the tidal sand bank, wading through the waters. Stay safe though and make sure that you are aware of safe crossing times and get advice locally. Inishkeel is home to the ruins of two 12th century churches which are excellent to see for those who are interested in Irish history and architecture.

There are several amenities in Narin for those visiting for a cottage holiday, including two pubs, a beach front shop and a convenience store for all the goods you would need if visiting on a self-catering basis. The population of the village is mostly based in the countryside around the settlement, and everyone is friendly and welcoming to those who are visiting or passing through. The pubs make excellent places to meet locals and at the same time listen to traditional music and sample tasty food, and you will feel at home within a couple of hours of being in Narin!

Golf enthusiasts will be happy to hear that there is an 18 hole golf course with a club house located in Narin, and whether you are a specialist golfer looking to play to your heart’s content, or whether you just want to gather up your friends and family for a bit of fun, it makes for a wonderful afternoon out in this picturesque part of County Donegal.

The Gweebarra Bay and its beautiful waters are perfect for swimming in, and those who are a little more active may even want to try surfing the waves. During the summer the waters are warm and having a dip in the Atlantic Ocean in the village of Narin is pure bliss.

With so many wonderful natural attractions, this is a fantastic part of Ireland for a memorable self-catering getaway. Choices of accommodation available on Country Cottages Online include coastal cottages, pet-friendly cottages, chalets and log cabins. We trust that you will have a fantastic time when enjoying a cottage stay in or around Narin.
