    my family and I couldn't fault with this house. We had plenty of room and the kids loved the play room upstairs. It really helped that we had fantastic weather so we could really enjoy the garden. We are hoping to book it again for next year.

  • "I was told that this was suitable for wheelchairs but it was not."

    Isobel was great though when i phoned her to see if she could do anything for me, or my son and i would have had to travel home again. She got men in to build a temporary one which done the job. Other than that we had an enjoyable time.

    Thank you for your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We don't advertise the property as wheelchair friendly. Sykes Reservation Team are available to call owners and check any access requirements before bookings are made to ensure that the properties are suitable. Property Owner

  • "Good location near a pretty village."

    We had the bonus of being their during the Lennon Festival which was lively and enjoyable, the kids had a good time at small fun fair. We would also recommend Conways Bar in Wednesday night when locals play Bluegrass music great night. The Riverside cafe is also worth a visit open 9-5 food and service is a high standard. Donegal is a beautiful County with lovely beaches and plenty to do. Tropical World good for animal lovers Arena7 for good indoor fun for adults and kids. Go to Donegal for a great holiday with friendly people.

  • "The accommodation is well located, very spacious but needs updating throughout."

    The surprise was that the electricity was an add-on, paid in cash. We didn't see this noted in your details.

  • "The house is very nice and spotlessly clean."

    It has all the facilities you need, and the play room is a nice touch. Some of the decor/fixtures/fittings could probably do with updating. It feels like a house from the Seventies sometimes! But everything is in good working order, so no issues with that. One note: neither of the DVD players were working properly during our stay. Overall it's a nice house in a great location.

  • "Ramelton is a lovely little town, the locals are very friendly and the Local Euro Spar has an excellent Diner serving food all today that is off a very high standard, the staff were very friendly and helpful."

    Good location for touring Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way. This house has great facilities for families, there is more than enough space for children to be heard and not seen.

  • "I found the paying for power as an extra not easy to cope with."

    Having no communication for this to calculate. A fridge that would take a bottle of milk standing up would have been a help, as would some dishes to be able to cook in the microwave. Plenty of everything else. I feel access to the internet would be an advanrtage

About the location


Letterkenny 8 miles.

The sleepy heritage town of Ramelton, County Donegal, sits at the start of the Fanad Peninsula, where the River Lennon joins Lough Swilly. Cut into a wooded valley, Ramelton dates back to the 17th century and the distinctive architecture of the warehouse buildings on the quays dominate the village. Ramelton has a colourful history as one of Donegal’s most important ports, with ships arriving from the Carribbean in the 1800s to export linen made in the village. Though quieter nowadays, an abundance of welcoming local shops and pubs still welcome visitors, and there are ample opportunities for fishermen and golfers in the region. The picturesque Fanad Head is just a short distance away, as are beaches at Rathmullan and Dunfanaghy.
