  • "Definitely a little gem."

    Everything I needed to take a week out to recharge. Warm, comfortable, well equipped in a quiet setting. Spectacular scenery, beaches etc all within easy reach. Only slight gripe, instructions to find it not very clear so took me a while. Highly recommended and I will return

  • "Enjoyable stay at the cabin."

    Cabin is deceptively spacious. Pros: easy to heat, cosy, comfortable king size bed, excellent shower, price Cons: could do with a spring clean and window clean, building work noise next door (temporary) All in all, an enjoyable stay. Can’t be too critical about anything given the extraordinary cheap price. Eamonn was communicative, and housekeeper was lovely. Many thanks.

  • "There is a problem with the eircode which Google map doesn’t pick up and it makes it difficult to find the hidden gem!"

    I would complain to google maps as they should rectify it. I will also try to do that.

  • "Lovely cabin in the woods."

    Might benefit from an external clean-up, lots of dead bugs and leaves all around the window frames. Well furnished and fitted out but could benefit from a spatula and a colander! Well positioned for exploring Donegal County which is truly beautiful.

  • "Perfect for two, for those who are looking for a point to get to know Co."

    Donegal. For fishermen - close to the ocean, roads for cyclists only for you. 10 minutes to shops, restaurants. The cottage is luxuriously equipped for those who return to bed for the night. I would add, rather for seniors - for a drink 10 km. Best regards. Kasia and Darek.

  • "We just loved our holiday in this cabin."

    It was cosy and homely and provided a fabulous base for touring this part of Donegal. We looked forward to returning home there each evening to relax after a busy day. The host Eamon was extremely helpful and having just returned home, we are already looking forward to booking the cabin again soon.

  • "We enjoyed every part of the holiday."

    The house was super clean, cosy, warm and perfectly equipped. Our interaction with the owner was first class. We loved the area and the wider Central and Southern parts of Donegal. Beaches are outstanding. We took a trip to Tory Island which was a highlight. The perfect holiday cottage for 2.
