Guest Reviews


    • “The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. We would definitely stay there again in the future.”

    Mrs Mcbride, Birmingham, September 2014

    • “The cottage was in an excellent position close to shops and yet all roads south and north were very accessible. The owner is a very nice man who was very helpful over TV queries one evening ( arriving within minutes of our phone call) AND taught my husband how to make and keep in a peat and log fire in his excellent stove- my husband thought that great fun! The cottage was well equipped with tourist maps and literature. There were also very good white goods provision and good electric stove!”

    Mrs Randles, Radstock, September 2014

    • “Being able to relax in comfort as central heating meant we could keep warm. Didn't have to rush down for breakfast which you do in a hotel and was handy for our requirements as family live locally.”

    Mrs Sweeney, Glasgow, December 2013

About the location


Arranmore Island 7.5 miles; Letterkenny 32 miles.

Up until 1762, entry to the town of Dungloe in Donegal was only possible via the stepping stones dotted over the river. Thankfully, now, visitors from all over the world can enjoy easier access over Dungloe Bridge to enjoy this charming town in County Donegal. Dungloe is known locally as 'The Capital of The Rosses', the name given to this region of the county. The town, which has become recognised as a centre for traditional Irish music, has a selection of shops, bars and eateries, and events throughout the year, including the annual 'Mary from Dungloe' festival. A fisherman's paradise, the area has over 130 lakes and rivers, and is renowned for its fishing and great sea angling, with several charter boats available in nearby Burtonport. There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Arranmore and Rutland Islands. Wonderful wildlife can be found in the bogs and reed beds, while golfers will love the variety of golf courses in the surrounding area. With hills and mountains to explore, dramatic coastline to enjoy and so much to see and do, this is sure to make the perfect base for your Donegal holiday.
