  • "My husband and I had a wonderful time here."

    The weather was beautiful but even if it hadn't been we would have still enjoyed it. The views are stunning. I can highly recommend this accommodation. We would most definitely return .

  • "The house was very well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    When we arrived the kitchen tap was dripping noisily. I contacted the owner who was aware but explained that the plumber was a farmer so we had to wait for his availability. This wasn’t repaired all week and did affect us as we struggled to ignore the noise whilst being in the kitchen. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore the beautiful area.

  • "The house was beautifully maintained and in a stunning location, which allowed for my very elderly parents to really enjoy their stay."

    We loved swimming and kayaking at the pier every day. My father is disabled and found the showers quite difficult as the floors are slippy and there are no grab rails/handles for him to hold onto. However we would definitely recommend the house as a fabulous place to stay. We loved it.

    We will take your comments on board & try & replace rubber suckers & sucker mat with something more substantial. Also look into getting hand rail. Property Owner

  • "Loved the place, not quite what we were expecting as looking at the pics, it looked very close to the beach/bay."

    I am able bodied and I walked down to it in 10 minutes, however my sister in law struggled as she has problems mobilising. The house itself was fantastic, loved it in all honesty and would highly recommend the house to everybody, probably more able bodied people, but if you have a car, that’s better

    Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The house we booked for our holiday was amazing."

    Very clean and today and all we needed was there for us. The owners were very helpful and hospitable. We would definitely book the same house again for our next trip to Donegal. The location was incredible. The scenery was just what we hoped for. Whoever stays there in the future will be happy I’ve no doubt. All in all a lovely honeymoon with great memories created.

    We spent a lot of time with our children cycling around Malin Head, and appreciated the quiet and beauty of the place. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

  • "Great view from house."

    Very clean and tidy. Could have done with a hoover or long handled dust pan and brush. For spills e.t.c. But well worth the money plus our week was very hot so a bonus. Would stay again. Well done to the owners.

Malin Head on the Inishowen Peninsula is famous for being the most northerly point in Ireland. It is home to some of Ireland’s most beautiful rugged coastline and stunning sandy beaches, which together provide ample fishing opportunities and a haven for birdwatchers, artists, photographers, walkers and golfers. The picturesque area has even been taken advantage of and used as one of the filming locations for Star Wars. Take a walk up to Banba's Crown, the most northerly headland in Ireland, and take in the spectacular scenery and stunning views, which on a clear day, stretch for miles around. A walk around Malin Head is just over five miles and takes a little over two hours so why not stop off for a refreshing drink at Ireland’s most northerly pub and enjoy the views? Only a short drive away lies Balyliffin with a beautiful beach and two world-class championship links golf courses, while Inishowen has five golf courses set amongst stunning scenery. The Famine Village on Doagh Island near Ballyliffin is open all summer and attracts thousands of visitors. A day trip for all the family to enjoy is the traditional walled city of Derry; discover a part of Ireland's history and heritage in St. Columb's Cathedral, tour the walls and enjoy the Tower Museum. With all of this plus pubs, restaurants and shops to enjoy, there will be something to keep everybody occupied.
