  • "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.

  • "One of the toilets was not flushing properly, as it was blocked and needed freeing."

    There was no grill, and the dish washer lock mechanism gave trouble. The sheets in my bedroom had yellow stains.

    The beautiful house is presented in an immaculate condition with everything that’s needed for a great holiday. The views of the bay from the living area are magnificent.

  • "House was immaculate and located in a quiet picturesque setting overlooking the sea."

    Floor to ceiling sliding doors opening onto a patio area with glass surround so that your views were unspoilt. Everything required for stay was in the house. Would definitely make another visit to this wonderful home.

  • "A stunning property with amazing views over the bay."

    It was extremely clean and suited our family of 4 adults perfectly. Lots of walks nearby or within a short distance. The furnishings are very comfortable in all rooms. Comfortable beds also. The kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. We found the local people friendly and very helpful when we had an unfortunate car breakdown.

    The house itself is very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Everything you could ever need is provided and the owners are so easy to deal with with a superb attention to detail. Would strongly recommend this perfect holiday destination.

  • "What a beautiful house in a fabulous location."

    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.

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.
