  • "Teac Chondai is a beautiful cottage."

    There were 9 of us staying. Fridge is inadequate size for two families. If you use water elsewhere in the house and are having a shower it effects pressure and water temp in downstairs shower falls dramatically. Basically you can’t use both showers at once. I feel the meter for heating etc is a bit much during summer months esp as you have to put it on to use downstairs shower... it doesn’t cost much to have extra hot water. Whenever you pay for rental accommodation you expect the heating to be included. The seating area downstairs could use another comfortable sofa.

    We have made changes to our cottage following this review, including adding a larger fridge/freezer, a power pump to increase water pressure to showers and heating/water are included with new guest managed timer controls. We are constantly seeking to improve our guests experience and these changes made in 2020 have added to the increasingly positive feedback we have constantly received from our guests since 2020. We look forward to continuing to welcome guests to our unique thatched cottage experience in this beautiful part of North West Ireland along Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way. Property Owner

  • "A very comfortable traditional thatched cottage."

    Everything you hope to find in a holiday cottage including a turf fire. Second year we have booked this cottage and we will be booking again for next year.

  • "Teac Chondai Thatched Cottage is a fabulous cottage."

    Very traditional but with all you could wish for. Very comfortable. Wi-Fi connection. Two shower rooms which makes things so much better. Great gardens which the owners have made very safe for pets and children. Lovely open fire and central heating. Would definitely recommend. Will be booking again.
