Why we've chosen Creevy Cottages

Overlooking the wild Atlantic coastline of South Donegal, these traditional stone cottages marry the olde world of a fishing village with modern conveniences, including bait and tackle rooms as well as freezing & drying facilities. 

Situated directly on the wild Atlantic coastline of County Donegal, only a 'stones throw' from the Creevy shore.  Our beautiful reconstructed traditional stone cottages are located only 3Km from Ballyshannon town, 3Km from Rossnowlagh beach (Blue Flag) and 9Km from Bundoran (Blue Flag) seaside town, Donegal, Ireland.

With the comfort and convenience of guests in mind, these accommodations have been finished to a high standard with many unique features including flagstone floors, traditional fireplaces, half-doors and sash windows. So whether you are an angler, a deep sea diver, snorkeller, surfer, golfer, horse rider, cyclist, nature lover, walker or simply wish to relax by the sea, we can easily cater to your needs.

Facilities include ensuite bedroom, fully fitted kitchens, oil-fired central heating, paved rear patios and substantial walled gardens. Guests can choose between cottages nestled by the shore or languishing deep in quiet countryside, each with spectacular views of mountain & sea. Located in their own private locations, on half acre walled sites, these Irish holiday rentals are ideally suited to families or to people just wanting to 'get away from it all'.

We are one of the first in Ireland to be awarded the EU Flower Eco Label for our commitment to green tourism standards. As a member of Ireland's  Greenbox, our award is the only sign of environmental quality valid throughout Europe with a unique opportunity to satisfy our customer’s environmental expectations. 

You can enjoy a stroll on 2 mile Rossnowlagh Beach (Blue Flag) or on the 10 mile Creevy Shore Walk situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean overlooking Donegal Bay and surrounded by the Hills of Donegal. The walk is purpose built running from Rossnowlagh through Creevy to the mouth of the Erne Estuary. There are numerous archaeological &  historical sites of significance to be enjoyed. We hope you enjoy your green holiday in Donegal, Ireland and take time to savour its many delights. Your first visit will certainly not be your last!

Guests can also charter Creevy’s own purpose built boat, ‘An Duanai Mara’ – 33ft Aqua Star Boat, licensed for deep sea fishing, sightseeing, dolphin, bird and nature watching trips around the Creevy cliffs up along the coast to Sliabh League, the highest sea cliffs in Europe & the Donegal Coastline.

How does Creevy Cottages minimise its impact on the environment and contribute to a sense of place?

Creevy Cottages' electricity is generated through wind power, while all water tanks are extremely well insulated with a special switch for heating water that gives users the choice of 1/4 hour, 1/2 or 1 hour to heat up the water. There are also energy saving bulbs in all lights, the buildings themselves as insulated to European standards, and most appliances are A-rated. Guests are provided with recycling bins and composters, while all cleaning products are eco friendly and both lemon and vinegar are promoted as cleaning agents. Water savers have been fitted in all the cisterns, while the owners regularly monitor the slow in showers and taps. They also use 'eco balls' for washing linen and towels, as well as collecting rainwater to water the herb and salad gardens.

Guests will receive a welcome pack that contains Fairtrade tea, coffee and sugar, plus homemade scones and muesli, half a dozen freerange eggs from nearby Pattons farm and milk from the local creameries. Guests are also free to pick the herbs and salads growing in the garden. The website offers plenty of information on arriving at Creevy without driving, together with plenty of information on walking and cycling routes, including a 10 mile coastal walk from Rossnowlagh to Ballyshannon and the 10 mile Creevy Shore Walk, which runs through Creevy as it passes from Rossnowlagh to the Erne Estuary. The owners will also pick you up from the bus station.

Reviewed by Catherine Mack:

"The Creevy style is ‘no fuss’ cottage style furnishings, sofas around the fire, beds with woollen throws, but no longer an outside loo or a bath by the fire, of course. There are spacious, modern ensuite bathrooms..."
