    The house is amazingly spectacular! It has everything one could desire in a holiday! Clean, bright and quiet area with wonderful sea views. The beds were lovely and comfortable! The yard was great for the dogs and family to enjoy the time away! Dogs were able to freely roam about -supervised and had a stupendous time! Alan the Host was lovely and gave us all the directions and information necessary to enjoy the property. Short walk to seaside and it was such an amazing area. Rich in history! Lots to do for everyone!

  • "Excellent accommodation with everything holiday visitors might need provided."

    The house was spotless and every bedroom had freshly laundered bedding and towels. There was plenty of safe space around the house to let our dog out for exercise and for us to sit on picnic benches and enjoy the good weather. There is a small supermarket and petrol station close by and the centre of Moville is a short walk away. All in all a great find!

  • "We had a good comfortable stay in this house."

    It was very clean, organised house and we had close access to the sea/beach/,as well as our kids were available to play on a football pitch not so far from us. The owner left some treats for our stay, it was very kind and very generous of him to do. Only one thing is If the living room had a carpet it would be more warm and suitable.
