  • "We absolutely fell in love with this house, the house was beautiful, perfect infact."

    The owners left us a lovely bottle of wine when we arrived which was a lovely touch. We spent a week living in luxurious comfort, the views where amazing and it was so peaceful there, shops where a short drive away the area has some of the most beautiful beaches ive ever seen, we made some beautiful memories in this house, and we where truly saddened to have to leave, Only thing I would say and it's the only negative and a small one was the midges (flys) where attracted by the spotlight at the front of the house at night stopping us from sitting out as much as we would have liked at night. We plan to return to this house as it stole our hearts. Thank you to the owners for giving me and my family some unbelievable memories.

  • "Reluctantly we returned home yesterday."

    We were extremely happy with this accommodation which was bright, clean, spacious and modern. It is furnished really well with everything you would need for your holiday. We were so impressed that we have already booked for next Easter but this time we will be going for 2 weeks instead of 1. The location of the property is simply beautiful. The owner communicated extremely well with us and was very helpful. As a side note I have seen properties online then when I arrived they have been half the size from the impression on the photos. This property is exactly how it is shown.

  • "What a wonderful place to stay."

    We've just returned from a week's stay in a stunning property in beautiful Donegal. The views from the panoramic full length windows in the lounge were absolutely stunning. The underfloor heating made the whole property so cosy and warm, and the beds were incredibly comfortable making for a fabulously relaxing holiday. Traeannagh Bay House truly is a stunning property which we would thoroughly recommend to anyone travelling to this part of Ireland.

    My son and grandson flew from the UK to spend the week with us...The house was lovely and easy to use. My well behaved dog soon got used to new surroundings with the exception of the robot lawnmower ! which seemed to start when he was outside...apologies for his barking. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a home from home holiday and to have a relaxing time...Thank you for allowing us to have a family holiday at this amazing place. Would like to think we will return.

  • "I am just afraid to provide my genuine feedback on this piece of paradise as I worry that I will not be able to book it when I want to in the future."

    This is my fourth trip this year to Teresa and Bernard's properties, here and Crohy house - this area of Donegal is so special, we travelled short distances to different beaches each day and indeed many times a day too. The house is so comfortable, clean, modern, every possible facility available. The panoramic view from the sitting room is truly special - 180 degree landscape to include rolling mountains, sea, tides and the oyster farm of course. Stylish, modern, clean and comfortable and so quiet - a piece of paradise to relax in. Also had the pleasure of meeting Bernard and Teresa this time which was super special. The fantastic furniture and maintenance of their properties is a credit to them both.

    A true treat for us all just after Christmas. Everything to hand, it felt like we were the first people to rent the house out - everything impeccable and what a fabulous view. The most comfortable leather couches from which to truly view 4 seasons in one hour - thank you for the lovely bottle of bubbly - a very special touch. Booked it immediately again - highly recommended - remote and narrow roads which add to the experience- the sun rise over the bay- mussel collections when the tide is out - truly special - thank you very much.

  • "Traeannagh bay house is a modern state of the art, clean and comfortable house."

    The house has great views in a beautiful location about four mile from Dungloe. The heat pump heating for the house works very well providing unlimited hot water and heating but is non adjustable which made the bedrooms a little warm at night. The hi-tech cooker had no instructions and was difficult to work. The sitting room is very comfortable but a table light and coffee tables addition could improve viewing TV. Lastly a few extra towels would help overall comfort in this lovely house.

About the location


Arranmore Island 7.5 miles; Letterkenny 32 miles.

Up until 1762, entry into the town of Dungloe in Donegal was only possible via the stepping stones dotted over the river. Thankfully, now visitors from all over the world can take the much easier route over Donegal Bridge and enjoy this charming town in County Donegal with ease. Dungloe is known locally as 'The Capital of The Rosses', the name given to this region of the county. The town, which has become recognised as a centre for traditional Irish music, has a selection of shops, bars and eating places, as well as events taking place throughout the year, including the annual 'Mary from Dungloe' festival. A fisherman's paradise, the area has over 130 lakes and rivers and is renowned for its fishing and great sea angling, with several charter boats available in nearby Burtonport, from where diving can also be enjoyed. There are also daily boat trips from the harbour to Arranmore and Rutland Island. Wonderful wildlife can be found in the bogs and reed beds, while golfers will love the variety of golf courses found in the surrounding area. With hills and mountains to explore, the dramatic coastline to enjoy and so much to see and do, this is sure to make the perfect base for your Donegal holiday.
