    Actually, it was cleaner and better equipped than my own home. Absolutely immaculate and so well equipped. Cream cakes and everything you need to make a tea or coffee on arrival. Extremely well managed by helpful and friendly locals and well situated to explore the whole of the county and beyond. I miss the bed - it was so comfortable!

  • "We had a fabulous family holiday in 'Wee Andy's' in July 2023."

    The house was easy to find and there was lots of delicious goodies to welcome us when we arrived. The house is immaculate, comfortable and has everything you could need. The grounds are perfect for relaxing in the sun between trips. The house is a great base for trips to the many beautiful beaches, waterfalls, fishing and pier jumping. The ferry from Buncrana to Rathmullan is particularly spectacular on a good day. Our hosts Cathy and Rory were extremely welcoming and always on hand to give advice or help in anyway. We forgot one of the kid's life jackets and In no time at all, Rory had delivered one to the door. Thanks Cathy and Rory for being fabulous hosts. We will look forward to visiting 'Wee Andy's' again soon!!

  • "This is an immaculate cottage maintained to a superb standard."

    We met the owner, who explained how everything worked and we had a lovely welcome pack to set us up. Whilst this is not advertised as an accessible cottage, one bathroom has a disabled toilet and shower chair which was of great benefit to us. The outside space has been very well done and the seating provides views over the countryside. Nothing was too much trouble, we had great communication from the owners who even helped us when we couldn’t find the cottage due to our lack of understanding the directions. This cottage is highly recommended for a visit to county Donegal.

    Rory and Cathy were fantastic hosts. The house was perfect, spotless when we arrived with a lovely basket of bread, milk, scones and butter. We had young children with us and were provided with a cot and highchair. Excellent location for exploring the whole inishowen peninsula and beyond and we would highly recommend staying here.

    The cottage provided a warm, (spectacularly) clean, comfortable base to return to while visiting Derry and Inishowen in the autumnal weather. There is space to relax, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and two shower rooms. Cathy and Rory were warm, welcoming, helpful and un-intrusive hosts who had thought of everything including a welcome of tea/coffee, milk and locally made bread and cakes. We would definitely book again if we return.

  • "I cannot speak highly enough about our stay at Wee Andy's."

    Cathy and Rory were the perfect hosts - they had thought about just about everything we could possibly want during our stay and made sure we knew they were available should we need anything else. They provided a welcome pack of baked goods and wine; very unexpected but a lovely touch. The house itself is modern, immaculately clean and has great facilities - we cooked many meals when we were there and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. There was unlimited hot water and the heating was very effective. The beds were very comfortable, with pristine white bedlinen and lots of lovely plump pillows on every bed - a refreshing change from many rental houses. One of our party had limited mobility so everything on one level, and a modern wetroom, was just perfect for us. Multiple parking spaces provided just outside the front door so loading and unloading cars was as painless as possible. Our party ranged from teens to 50s and everyone loved the house and fully intend to visit again if at all possible. Thanks to Cathy and Rory for providing such great facilities and making us so welcome; just the right balance of contact/leaving us to our own devices. A beautiful house in a beautiful area.

The property

Buncrana 1.3 miles.

Tucked away in Slavary, a stone's throw from the vibrant town of Buncrana on the Inishowen Peninsula, rests this charming single-storey cottage, Wee Andy's.

Perfectly positioned to explore both the coast on the Wild Atlantic Way and country of Ireland, Wee Andy's is the idyllic base for your next group adventure.

A spacious private driveway greets you upon arrival, leading you along the pathway to this lovely dwelling, beautifully-decorated with a contemporary exterior, inviting you to kick off your shoes and discover the delights that lie indoors.

Stepping into the property, you're welcomed into a stylish sitting room, fit with modern furnishings, inviting you to put your feet up and unwind for a moment of peace with a seat in front of the television.

Continuing through, enter into the immaculate kitchen where you can find all the necessary essentials for your stay, including a handy washing machine and dryer to refresh your wardrobe after an action-packed day.

Cook up a storm and gather your loved ones around the intimate dining table to serve your culinary delights, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outside for a spot of alfresco dining on the patio, offering a lovely spot to soak in the evening sun.

As the day draws to a close, retire to one of the three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms to rest your head, choosing between a spacious king-size with en-suite shower room, a family room with a super king-size double and a single with an en-suite shower room and a twin, perfect for larger groups!

After a fun-filled day, take a break from doing the cooking with a short stroll into the heart of Buncrana, boasting a fantastic selection of eateries to suit all tastes, including quaint cafes and delicious restaurants, and end the day in Irish tradition with a pint of Guiness and some good craic at O'Flaherty's Bar.

Take the scenic walking route along the Amazing Grace Walk toward the viewing platform, providing panoramic views across the stunning waters of Lough Swilly, or if that's not your thing, discover the fascinating art on display at The Northern Light Gallery & Studio.

Spend a fun-filled day at the nearby Lisfannon Beach, basking in the sun from the delightful golden sand that decorates the front, or tackle the waves with a session of surfing.

Further afield is the picturesque landscape of Glenveagh National Park, stretching over 16,000 acres of stunning scenery, offering a great selection of walking and cycling routes, passing lakes, mountains and woodland, with something to suit all abilities.

Whether you're looking for adventure or to unwind, choose Wee Andy's as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.
