  • "This is a wonderful cottage in a great location, especially if you have dogs."

    The nearby beach and dunes were beautiful and also quiet. There are plenty of beaches around within 5-10 minutes drive as well as shop/pubs. The owners are super friendly and we would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "Beautiful house, very well equipped and 5-10 mins from the beach."

    Couldn't ask for more. Owners are pure gold- helped me out when I got my car stuck- the whole family standing out in the rain in sympathy until they got me sorted. Would go back in a heartbeat. Loved the house, the location and even the schizophrenic Donegal weather.

  • "Great house and great location!"

    Galánta! The only one small annoyance was the spiral staircase but it wasn't too bad.

  • "The only point is it should be fenced off so dogs and children can go outside safely, as it's very close to the road."

  • "We had an absolutely fantastic break at Mullaghderg Banks with the extended family and our pet dog."

    The Property itself was deceptively spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. Set in a beautiful location with great beaches in close proximity, a fantastic place to stay and explore Donegal.

    The house was everything we needed for our family staycation. Very comfortable and spacious for our party which had adults, teenagers and small children. The wi fi was a bonus for the kids when we were at home although we were out and about in beautiful donegal every day.

  • "Mullaghderg Banks is a comfortable, cosy cottage close to a beautiful, almost deserted beach."

    Although this beach is not suitable for swimming, there are others within a few miles which are safe and equally attractive. The house was clean and well equipped for 7 adults, though the closeness to the main road could make it unsafe for young children. We enjoyed plenty of walks, climbing Errigal, visiting Glenveagh National Park, swimming and exploring nearby beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a fantastic part of Donegal.

  • "Area was beautiful, house was very cold when we arrived February need the heating on for our arrival took about 2 days to heat up."

    Furniture was different from pictures on the website. Needed toilet roll holders and towel rail in upstairs bathroom and towel rail in downstairs bathroom and somewhere to put clothes while in the shower as leaving them on the floor is a no no. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay in beautiful Co Donegal. Mrs. C MacDonald

  • "The cottage and owners were so accommodating."

    We had everything we needed and home baked bread and honey on arrival were so welcoming. The cottage was a fantastic bade for exploring Donegal with wonderful beaches on our doorstep where the dogs could run freely. We had such a great holiday and will definitely be back to see more of beautiful Donegal.
