  • "Lovely cottage."

    We were met by the owner who had put on a lovely fire for us arriving. Close to Lidl and Aldi for shopping, only a 10 minute walk and your in the centre.

  • "Well-equipped house that suited us very well, as it was very convenient for the supermarket and not far from the main town."

    The owner promptly sorted the key delivery and helped us with our stay. The single beds in one room were a bit too soft and uncomfortable but we managed. Lovely peat fire in the living room.

  • "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!

  • "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.

  • "The cottage was lovely, clean, and fresh."

    Items provided in the cottage went well beyond the minimum, so it felt like a home from home. It was handy for the town and for lots of places round about. There were lots of brochures provided to suggest places to go. Highly recommended!

  • "All in all this cottage exceeded any expectation I had."

    The location is key, close enough to comfortably walk to the town yet a secluded back garden gives the feeling of being in a more remote location. The owner is personable and precise. I cant imagine staying in a hotel in Donegal again with accommodations like this at very reasonable price. I look forward to returning to Carnmore Cottage. Regards, Mike McCready.

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.
