    It was very comfortable and felt like home from home. The garden was secure, great for the dog, and well kept. Very peaceful, and easily accessible from the main road. The location was lovely.

    Walking distance to the beach which was great and the local hotel “The Harbour Inn “ was also within walking distance. A great central base to Derry and Letterkenny. Lovely view from the house. Welcome pack was filled with goodies and we look forward to being able to return again. Martin Moore Co Down.
