An Nead description

Holiday home
An Nead is a detached cottage near to the village of Kilcar in County Donegal. The cottage sleeps two people and has one double bedroom with a cloakroom, making this apartment a wonderful romantic retreat so you can cuddle up to a loved one on the sofa whilst soaking up the far reaching views.

With stunning sea views and beaches nearby, An Nead is a coastal getaway for a romantic break.

The village of Kilcar is a peaceful village in County Donegal. The village sits in an area of natural beauty with spectacular views afforded at Slieve League Cliffs as well as one of the beaches on Muckros Peninsula ideal for surfing or bathing.

The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

This is just the best place I ever was in Ireland.. The owner was very very nice and friendly. The place was clean and there was everything you need to feel home. An Nead is placed in a location that seem to be paradise. :)

Brilliant location and good amenities in the cottage.. Directions could be improved as quite hard to follow. No welcome whatsoever. Key was under the mat but no instructions about anything in the house. Would have been useful to know what to do re waste disposal, some contact numbers, etc. Lots of random leaflets left by previous occupants. Would have been nice to have had milk in the fridge or at least directions to the nearest shop. There was a lot of random food left in the cupboard- in opened packets and some past the sell by date. Also the shower door and cooker hood were broken . Eventually we found three towels in cupboard under the stairs - one had definitely seen better days! It is hardly a romantic retreat! There are two single beds which need new mattresses and a settee facing the washing machine from which it is very difficult to view the television. It was much smaller than I had imagined considering the price we paid. It is in an ideal spot but with a bit of attention to detail could be so much better. I am surprised that Sykes didn't have a welcome pack as standard. Attention to the outside area would also improve its appeal.

We have booked two cottages with you, An Nead not great, damp, blocked drains, which we cleared, untidy outside, shower grimey, cleaned by us , it was functional, but I left a list of things in the guest book, that would improve visitors stays, but for minimal outlay.. It lacked, attention to detail. Previous guests had also made comments. We are on Spiddal Cottage this week, amazing as usual.

Charming little cottage.. Perfectly suited for a couple. The location and the view is wonderful. Prefect starting point to explore this part of Donegal. The owner is friendly and attentioned. Look to come back some day.

Everything was made to spend good holidays.. Dish washer, washing machine, dryer, so that you do not have to think about the housework ! The whole house was very clean. And of course having breakfast looking at the ocean was unforgettable !

An Nead is in a beautiful location with a stunning view of Muckross Head. It provides all the basics for two people to spend time exploring the Wild Atlantic Way in beautiful Donegal. The scenery all around is wonderful. Sleive Leag is close by, as is Glencolmcille, Glen Head and many lovely towns and villages. The village of Kilcar is a short distance where you will find a supermarket and pubs with more facilities a short drive away in Killybegs. A car is necessary to get around and take full advantage of the area but if you want to explore the beaches close to the house along with the headland, it is only a short walk from the door.

The cottage has a wonderful view of the sea and at night if you look out of the bedroom windows, you can see a string of twinkling lights across the bay. It is a very peaceful place if you need to get away from the rat race. The scenery in this area is spectacular, best we've seen in Ireland so far. We couldn't believe how reasonably priced this cottage is considering where it is!

A great place to go to! A cosy cottage with everything you need for a holiday. The owner has good furniture taste and we enjoyed having our meals with a sea view. Absolutely recommendable! We would come again.

An Nead; an ideal and comfy accommodation for two people. Clean and well equipped. At the kitchen table just sit and relax with a superb 180 degree panoramic view across the estuary to Sligo. Deserted sandy beach, with cliffs at each end, below cottage and within in 5 minutes travel, an ideal bird watching spot. Owner friendly. No noisy neighbours. You couldn't ask for more!

This was a wonderful area! Incredible scenery and beautiful little cottage. My daughter and I stayed at the incredible for 7 days. We loved it. It was a great size for the 2 of us and a wonderful location for exploring. The cottage was very clean and extremely comfortable. We are coming back to Ireland in April and will definately stay here again. Thank you for this incredible week in a beautiful location.

There was a wasching maschine, a dish washer, TV, two toilets, a heater down- and upstairs, everything one would need. This cottage is modernly furnished, very nice and clean. The view on the sea is breathtaking, the sheeps arround very cosy. What was a bit challenging was to find out how the door was to be closed and how to switch on the TV properly. No instructions were given. The beaches nearby are beauty and colourful.Slieve League is in sight and a fantastic place to see as well.

Quite location, with handy deserted beach 5 minutes drive, panoramic views across to Sligo and Mayo. The velux windows in the bedroom gave a new dimension to bedtime, stars and full moon, no light diffusion to spoil the effect. Appliances top of the range. Friendly neighbours. Ideal for a couple, could have stayed for much longer.
