Tigín Tuí, which means Little Thatched House, is a wonderful home which combines a century of history and modern day amenities. Set just outside Carndonagh on the road leading to Malin Head, our cottage offers you a warm and comfortable welcome. We have striven to keep the character of this lovely old cottage having maintained the thatch and simple interior furnishings whilst offering all that you will need for an enjoyable break away.
I live locally and will be available to welcome you and help you with any information you require during your stay. My passions are good food, home baking and hospitality. I provide a little welcome home baked gift on arrival and other home cooking items are available on request. I feel strongly that our local area of Inishowen is a unique and largely undiscovered treasure and I am more than happy to give you guidance for your days of exploration on our Peninsula.
Just 17 km from Carndonagh you will reach the most northerly point of Ireland that is Malin Head. Standing on Banba’s Crown you will hear the sounds of the sea mingling with the cries of the sea birds and know what I mean when I say “you have arrived “. On a clear day, Scotland’s Mull of Kintyre is visible on the horizon. This spring , the makers of the famous blockbuster Star Wars are coming to Malin Head to shoot some of the next Star Wars movie in this incredible landscape. A thirty minute drive out to the west in the direction of Letterkenny, the ancient fort of Grianán of Aileach stands 250m above sea level on the hills overlooking our beautiful Peninsula in its entirity. From the hill on which this ringfort stands (dating from 1700 BC) you can see the City of Derry and the Loughs Foyle and Swilly below. Tradition tells us that St Patrick baptized the local chieftan Eoghan here in the 5th Century and it is from this leader that Inishowen takes its name. A gentle walk from the carpark takes you up to the popular Glenavin waterfall outside Clonmany town which is just 12 km from Carndonagh . You can then descend for a delicious afternoon tea in the Glen House.
