Spectacular forest parks and nature reserves, great subterranean waterways, magical caves, stately homes, castle ruins and megalithic tombs.

Then at the end of your day you can relate your experiences in a welcoming pub, as you listen to Irish music, or eat out in an excellent gourmet restaurant.

Irish cottages put you at the heart of Ecotourism a unique region known as the Greenbox. You can immerse yourself in heritage, nature and local culture and bypass the tourist trail by booking a country cottage. The Greenbox is surrounded by water from the Lough Erne, Atlantic Ocean and the Shannon Erne Waterway.

Ecotourism appeals to the socially and ecologically conscious and Greenbox is the ecotourism label for this area. Interestingly this certification label is relevant to all sectors of the tourism but not holiday cottages or what is normally called an eco cottage.

Beautiful property, taste fully decorated and spacious throughout. Family perfect!

5 of 5
4 bedrooms, 3 baths, spacious living room and kitchen set in scenic surroundings make this an ideal family holiday home. We were attending a wedding at the Lough Erne Resort and we couldn't have asked for better! Thoughtful baskets of information about local services, tourist spots and take aways provided a personal touch along with the fresh linen and towels. It really was a home away from home-added bonus of the golf course for those of you who enjoy the game!! A wonderful weekend was had by us all and we would heartily recommend it to you all.

A lovely property in a very peaceful location

5 of 5
This is one of the the nicest rental properties we have stayed in. Anne and Jose were very welcoming and greeted us with fresh homemade Irish bread and a selection of provisions. The house was in excellent condition and we enjoyed the property and its surroundings. Well placed for Balleek, Donegal, Marble Caves, a number of goods beaches within 30 minute drive. We drove to the Giants Causeway one day, a long drive 2 1/2 hours but, for us, worth it. The Irish weather can be very wet but we had some nice spells during our stay. Thank you Anne and Jose for letting us use your house. Sue
