Where is it?
This lovely village is situated along the wonderful touring route around the broad sweep of Gweebarra Bay. Lettermacaward or "Leitir" as it is known locally, is the gateway to the Rosses to the south. The "Hills of Donegal" roll down to the sea here bringing with them the Gweebarra River. The bay, rich in both estuary and marine life, is an ideal location for angling, horse riding, sailing, (pier on south side of the bay), scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming and surfing/windsurfing.
Other activities locally include quiet roads, lanes and tracks for walking, hiking and cycling.
Leitir has a population of about a thousand people. Few regions in Ireland can boast of the magnificent coastal and mountain scenery surrounding Leitir. The beautiful Gweebarra Bay and Estuary attract many admirers while Dooey beach (5 mins drive from the cottage) is one of natures unspoilt beauties and a favourite with surfers from around Ireland and beyond.
Portnoo Blue Flag beach is 15 minutes away by car and also has a renowned 18 hole Links Golf Course. Nearby Glenveagh National Park attracts thousands of nature lovers every year. Within minutes walk of the cottage you can retrace the Famine Walk our ancestors would have walked 150 years ago.
Cottage is centrally located to access the towns of Glenties and Dungloe - home of "Mary from Dungloe festival". The larger towns of Ballybofey and Donegal Town (45 minutes drive away) offer a variety of shops and restaurants.
