  • "Such a comfortable, well equipped house with stunning sea views on all sides."

    Loved our time here

  • "Lovely and very comfortable house in a magical location."

    Made even more welcoming by the Irish Fest poster in the sitting room — it is from my hometown of Milwaukee. Of course, WiFi would be good, but we made do with the excellent cell coverage. Your cottage topped our stays at four rentals on our trip to Ireland.

    I think if someone was there to tell us how to use the heating and or the hot water it would have been perfect however we had to try and work it out by ourselves even if there was a handbook to explain that was all that was wrong with our stay

  • "This cottage is in a superb setting with 180 ° sea views."

    That's what we liked most. It is very comfortable and well heated. The beds are very good. Some cupboards are "cluttered" with objects and food belonging to the owner, which made us feel like we were not home. However, we had a pleasant stay in this cottage. We will definitely stay there again.

Thankfully, now visitors from all over the world can take the much easier route over Donegal Bridge and enjoy this charming town in County Donegal with ease. 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 eating places, as well as events taking place 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, from where diving can also be enjoyed. There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Arranmore and Rutland Island. Wonderful wildlife can be found in the bogs and reed beds, while golfers will love the variety of golf courses found in the surrounding area.
