Pier Cottage is a charming traditional stone-built cottage dating back to the 1830’s situated on Bunbeg Harbour in West Donegal. The cottage has been lovingly maintained, upgraded and cared for by its current owners and enjoys a picture-perfect outlook overlooking the harbour, Clady River and Loughlin Island.



Bunbeg Harbour dates back to the late 1830’s when it was developed by Lord George Hill, in Penal times, in order to encourage fishing activity by the local “Fearless Boatmen”. By the 1890’s Bunbeg was a thriving Harbour landing catches of Lobster, Crab, Herring and Mackerel which were transported promptly by Curragh, Horse & Cart, Raul, Steam Boat and Rail again in order to reach the restaurants of London fresh.


Today the Harbour remains busy with the growing of Oysters in the adjacent Bay and the catching of Wild Salmon on the nearby River Clady. Fishing trips are available to Tory Island (with its own traditional “King”. Three Spanish Armada Galleon shipwrecks lie off the Harbour which perished in a sudden storm in 1588 offering a haven for Divers. There are three Slipways in the Harbour for launching your own boat into the water, offering a useful facility for visitors and locals alike.
