  • "Quay cottage is in a perfect location beside the town."

    Beautiful views from the back garden & surrounding area. The owners made us feel very welcome. We hope to return someday

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage."

    Only drawback is no Wi-Fi which was a problem with a 12 and a 7 year old in a very wet Donegal. We were quite happy!

  • "First class."

    Exceptionally well equipped and nicely furnished house. Spacious and comfortable. We have rented a lot of houses in different parts of Ireland and Quay cottage is the best equipped and most homely we have been to. Welcome pack of eggs bacon etc. Most rentals only have the bare essentials so Quay Cottage is definitely one to recommend to family and friends. Many thanks.

  • "Quay Road Cottage is a delightful spacious home with everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and the owners helpful but not intrusive. The views over the bay from the front garden are glorious and the pubs and restaurants only a few minutes walk away.

  • "This is a lovely house in a very pleasant location a few yards from the sea."

    It is two minutes walk from the town and its choice of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a hotel also within 10 -15 minutes walking distance. The house itself is spotless with every amenity for self catering and the owners are welcoming and more than willing to share their local knowledge of the area and places of interest.

  • "Excellent premises location."

    A bit close to owner's house for privacy. House stocked with copious amounts of Edwardian delph. At least 30 glasses but not tone wine glass.Nice gesture welcome pack of processed meats that we don't use.Can this be the only Sykes Cottage with 4 ticks where the landlord doesn't provide a hairdryer? There was a broken one in the drawer which the owner said was left by a previous occupant but he didn't supply one. Had to purchase a hairdryer . Could have brought our own had we known. Wifi only available in the corner of an end bedroom.This could be a 9.9 premises if these niggles were ironed out and the landlord developed better inter-personal skills.

    Suzie and Michael provide comfort and all facilities; and even kindly provide a Breakfast Pack and Scones on arrival. We had a wonderful time, and coming back to the comfort of the cottage in the late afternoon, to relax in the Garden overlooking the Bay was the icing on the cake.

    Rather, because there is so much of Ireland we haven't seen yet, we would prefer to visit somewhere new next time.

  • "The owners lived next door and they were very helpful."

    We love seaside holidays and the cottage was next to the sea. It had excellent views especially early morning and evenings when the sun set. The surrounding area had numerous beaches, many of which were exceptional. Driving in this locality was a pleasure as the main roads were good, there was little traffic and the scenery was great. The shops in Dungloe were very convenient and there was a good choice of food for our self catering holiday. We were very lucky with the weather as warm, sunny days are essential for the type of holiday we required.

About the location


Arranmore Island 7.5 miles; Letterkenny 32 miles.

Up until 1762, entry into 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 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. With hills and mountains to explore, the dramatic coastline to enjoy and so much to see and do, this is sure to make the perfect base for your Donegal holiday.
