Hi my name is Margaret, this is my first year renting my property, but l have been in the catering industry all my life. I am a chef who never get tired of cooking for my family. I have 2 grown up children and 2 lovely grandchildren. They spend a month of the summer holidays with me. I love food, eating out and holidays in Spain. I always meet my guests on arrival, to make sure they are settled in and know how things work. I leave tea,coffee,milk,sugar and cereal in the cottage for my guests to help themself. I also try to have some homemade bread on arrival.Theses little things help to create a home from home atmosphere and good holiday experience.
Glencolumbkille is a treasure trove of historical sites, we have Dolmens in the area and l am very fortunate to have one in my garden hence the name Dolmen Cottage. There is the Silver Strand beach,folk Village and Slaibh Liag all on our doorstep. The Cloghanmore Megalithic tombs dating from3000BC is a short 300m from the property. There are also lots of beautiful walks in the area. In 2018 Glencolumbkille was voted the coolest place on the planet by National Geographic, making Dolmen Cottage a great destination for a unique and memorable holiday experience.
