  • "By far the most beautiful and well-equipped house I have stayed in."

    We rented the property for Christmas and found that the extra dishes and cookware I brought from home were not needed -- fully equipped kitchen to prepare and serve an enormous Christmas dinner to 11 people (American style fridge helps with storage!). Beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean, and the living space is set up for maximum socialising. We had three generations in the house and all were happy.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feed back. Property Owner

    Lovely house with everything we needed in a beautiful point with exceptional views. We had a wonderful time. Thank you, Caroline and John, you couldn't have been more helpful.

  • "Great, spacious house in the most beautiful donegal."

    Unfortunatley the spin wasn't working on the washing machine and the bottom tray of the dishwasher wasn't functioning either. Bottom spinner not turning. Functioning washing machine and dishwasher is a very basic request on self catering.... House appeared clean on arrival, but more than once on moving furniture, especially chairs in the sitting room, rubbish from previous occupants still on the floor. ... clearly not hoovered/swept. We booked a higher standard of house than usual this year, we've been self catering in Ireland for years..... i've never been so dissapointed. As a stay at home home mom with 6 kids the last thing I wanted for my holidays was so many hours washing up due to a poor functioning dishwasher or to be picking up other peoples rubbish!!

  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday in Millers Lane House."

    As a party of nine (4 adults and 5 children) we had ample space to be together or to separate into smaller groups. The big Aga ensured it was always cosy. There are plenty of casual dining options just a short drive away and pleasant scenery all around.

    The house was amazing, spotless clean so well facilitated. Owners were lovely. Was so much to do nearby. The outdoor space was lovely for sitting out and for the kids to play and so safe. We had the best time and definitely booking for next year.

  • "No heating, first night was absolutely freezing and there was kids in the house."

    Then when we contacted the owner we were told that's the way it is.. it was meant to be on for 1 hour 3 times a day/night. No hot water. We then found out the back that there was a place to turn on the heating. It was scheduled to come on for 1 hour a day/night. Lovely house, just freezing.

  • "Even before our guests arrived at the home booked, Caroline the owner was in touch with me to arrange pick-up of the keys and to explain the heating controls etc."

    The home is just beautiful! It has everything a large booking of guests would ever need to enjoy a week in Donegal! Lovely touches like milk, teabags, biscuits all most welcome when people arrive. House facilities are second to none, we will be back for another visit. John (the owner) called in to introduce himself and make guests familiar with the heating controls and bins/recycling etc. Loads of towels and spare bed-linen in the house also. House was immaculate on arrival. Once again, we would recommend this home to everyone looking for a beautiful, clean home from home! Book it, you will not be disappointed :D Thank you to Caroline & John for such a great week in their wonderful home.

  • "Miller's Lane House is wonderful."

    The rooms are big and comfortable, the views to die for. I would say the beds were not terribly comfortable and seemed old, and the lights, where there were multiple bulbs in a fixture just had one measly bulb in each. In the bathroom, this was particularly a problem. On the whole, however, the house was great.

    Also downstairs bedroom has a dodgy shower goes from cold to very hot with no in between! That said was very enjoyable with just a few minor things needing addressed.

    The scenery was fantastic and the location was also terrific. The owners John and Caroline were very helpful and we would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation. In fact we would love to return in the future as it was so close to many attractions and to Derry which is a beautiful City.

    I spent the week with my daughter and son in law and 2 young children. Caroline and John met us at the house, and were so helpful and kind. The house was everything we had hoped for and more, with stunning views from both the family room, and the main bedroom upstairs. My downstairs wet room was ideal, and the small sitting room was an extra little space for my sewing!! The week was spent sight seeing, in coffee shops, and at home with the kids. We couldn't have asked for more in our stay, and have booked again for the same time next year.

Thank you John and Caroline for the welcome the heat and most of all allowing us to live like a king and queen in surroundings that only a few can dream off makes this a hard home to leave. It has fulfilled a dream of having my kids all-around me again i look through my pictures and i have a tear in my eye knowing i will miss this stunning beautiful home and all that it has to offer...

    Fantastic views over Lough Foyle, mountains in the distance and the ever changing views of the weather make this property unqiue. Caroline and John were so helpful and kind and added to the pleasure of staying at the great house. It’s a prefect location to explore County Antrim and Donegal as well as the beautiful city of Derry. We visited Giants Causeway and Malin Head all within easy reach of an hour. Great restaurants on the door step and friendly bars with the perfect pint of Guinness to make this trip to Ireland so worthwhile. I will definitely be bringing my family back to this beautiful house.

    The view was absolutely breath taking looking out over the water. Having 7 of us in the home it wasn't crowded and having individual en-suites was a bonus. There are a lot of interesting places to visit. We had a little issue the day after arriving but this was dealt with efficiently and quickly and did not hinder our stay. The owners were easy to contact. Will love to return in the future. Anyone booking this house is in for a lovely time.
