  • "We had a fantastic stay at Crohy Head and couldn’t have asked for any more."

    The property is immaculate and the views over the Atlantic are stunning. We had to contact the owners because my daughter pressed the Stop button on the automatic lawnmower and Bernard could not have been more understanding - he came by to reset this and was very friendly.

  • "A beautiful house with stunning sea views."

    A few minor issues: No garden furniture available (although the guest book stated that it was) which was a disappointment as we had enjoyed sitting out on our previous visit. The kitchen is very well - equipped but a mixing bowl and a whisk would be very useful. Also, the house Wi-Fi was not working during this visit.

    Hi Helena Im sorry about the garden furniture , weather has been very stormy , so decided to leave garden furniture in the garage , hope this this not impact to much on your stay Property Owner

  • "The Road to the house is "irish"."

    For people from a city not easy to handle, but this is the only "negative" aspect of our time at this wonderful place. Don't listen to your GPS. Navigate to Dungloe via N56 and use the Falmore Upper Rd from the North to reach the house. The Falmore Upper Road from the south-east take a lot more time and not very useful if you have a bigger car than a VW Golf. Also the GPS calculates 80km/h for the road. This is impossible.

  • "Beautiful house in stunning location."

    We were able to switch off completely and enjoyed walks and hiking in the area. Was the loveliest and cleanest holiday home we have ever stayed in. Bonus was as well that we could bring our dog along. Thanks to the owners for keeping it in such wonderful condition. From an artistic perspective the area was amazing. The wild beauty of Donegal reverberated in every detail. Would go back there any time again.

  • "Excellent house, very comfortable well built house finished to an excellent standard."

    Very good beds, couches etc and the bathrooms and showers are brilliant. Sky tv, Netflix etc. The views from the front and the back of the house are second to none, ever changing skyline and miles and miles of Atlantic Ocean. Local beach is lovely had a cafe, hires bikes and kayaks and has a football pitch and playground. Dungloe is a short drive and has many decent pubs, a good hotel with excellent views from the bar and restaurant and loads of places to eat. Also has a Lidl, Aldi and SuperValu. Owners leave you be but are on hand if you need them. Can’t recommend this part of Donegal Or this house highly enough

  • "Excellent accommodation, well equipped with all you would need."

    The views are stunning and with the weather being so good we were able to sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. We stay in Dungloe every year so know the area well, it has 4supermarkets to chose from so buy your shopping when you get there, it all helps the local economy. The people are always friendly and helpful if you need to ask for directions. The new river walkways is lovely and is flat for wheelchair users, also a little park for children. There are fantastic beaches, we recommend Portnoo and the airport beach. A great day out for all age ranges is Glenveagh national park, just make sure and take cash their card machine doesn't always work. Just go and enjoy, we will be back again soon.

    Location, at the top of the Head, is accessed by a single track bumpy road but has plenty of passing places. Dungloe is about a 10 minute drive away and has plenty of choice for shopping and eating out.

  • "The view from this house is spectacular, the photos really do not do it justice."

    We loved the fact we could bring the dog - thank you Theresa and Bernard - it is so hard funding somewhere to stay where we can bring the family pet. The house is very comfortable, you can tell it is newly built. We found it no problem, but that was doing a google street view beforehand and with a bit of detective work. locating the area where the house was built as street view has not been updated since 2011. The house is in a remote spot, but definitely worth it. The website is slightly misleading to say it is the town of Dungloe (which is a 15 min drive away) it is outside a small village called Maghery. There are no shops and one bar. The "cafe" unfortunately closed for the summer while we were there (last week in August) so we did not get a chance to try it. We went to Arranmore Island, Narin Beach, Portnoo and Glenveagh National Park. All worth a visit, though would definitely recommend Glenveagh on a dry day! My only minor quibble with the house would be the lack of kitchen accessories for cooking - no grater, kitchen scissors, oven gloves, however I'm sure Bernard and Theresa will remedy that. Dungloe has an Aldi and Lidl and another supermarket on the main street/corner of Cope St which had a lovely bakery. House would benefit from a BBQ! Looking forward to booking next year, however we see it is already fully booked July 2020 - very disappointed.

    We did have a little difficulty finding the location on arrival, and would possibly recommend a more detailed description of distances and what to expect to see on the road (We thought we were lost a few times given the remote location)
