The School House is a beautiful cottage located in a breathtaking location in Muckross on the Wild Atlantic Way, 2km from the village of Kilcar and 10km from Killybegs. It has 2 main bedrooms, with an additional bed option within the lounge area, sleeping up to 5 people (may accommodate 6 on request).

How to get there
Follow directions to Killybegs from Donegal Town. From Killybegs follow signs for Kilcar. After about 5 kms, just after the Blue Haven hotel on your right hand side, take the 'coast road' to the left. After 3 km you will see a signpost for Muckross Head and a beach - continue straight on for 0.5 km to find the School House on your right hand side just before the viewing point at the top of the hill.
