  • "Well kept property, the Internet didn't work but this was fixed quickly by con and noree they were very helpful."

    This property is remote and is good for anyone that likes walking or for touring donegal. The road to it is rough in places with grass down the centre. Yes we would go back there again we loved the peace and quiet of its surroundings

  • "The house was spacious and beautifully located."

    The view was fantastic, we could see all the way to the sea and Ben Bulben. The silence was restful, we heard nothing but the sheep and birds around the house. For us the house was not too remote, we made many trips to the surrounding area: Donegal Town, Killybegs, and the beautiful beaches of Donegal. The friendly and helpful hosts took good care of us. We will gladly come again. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

  • "Superb location with very far views."

    Perhaps for some travellers a bit too far from neighbours or Donegal (18 minutes by car).

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Bluestack House."

    The remote and peaceful setting was a perfect antidote to city life. The views were gorgeous and many enjoyable hours were spent just soaking them up. It was our first visit to Ireland and the cottage was a perfect base for exploring Donegal and a little further afield. The cottage was spacious and comfy and the owners were so lovely and helpful. A couple of suggestions to improve what was an amazing visit, are as follows: A few additional items in the cottage which would have been useful were a folder with some notes on to how to use the appliances, hot water, heating, etc (we figured it out, but this would be a helpful addition); a drying rack for dishes; spare dish towel; tongs for the fireplace, a starter pack for the fire (there was none on arrival). All in all, a truly memorable visit. Thank you so much to the Boyles, we had a very special stay in your lovely cottage.

    House nice and spacious and very comfortable. Owners lovely. Lots to especially as a family close to Donegal town and other sites like Bundoran and Glenveagh National Park. Really enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back in the near future.

  • "Lovely house up in the mountains with splendid views."

    Ideal base for touring the mountains on foot or by car, or just for unwinding in the peace and quiet and looking at the scenery. NB 15 or 20 minutes drive from Donegal the last 10 being on single track roads (though little frequented and with adequate passing places in most sections of the road). It's a pity that the DVD player didn't work properly. The property could also benefit from some minor additions such as a list of what can be re-cycled, a washing up bowl, kitchen scissors and shower mats, as we both slipped a bit on the smooth floors of the shower cubicles. :-)

  • "The house is in a beautiful remote area."

    Suited us down to the ground. No one around for miles. Good walking routes. I even managed to do some baking while I was there. The house was equipped with most things you would need. The only negative point that I have is in regard to the beds. The mattresses have seen better days. You were lying on springs. Agony. Even if they invested in ready good toppers if they don’t want to replace them. Something, anything would be better. With that I would hope to be able to return someday. It was the most peaceful relaxing break I’ve had in a long time.

A place of rugged and natural beauty I don’t want to go back to Dublin. Wonderful hikes from the house Noreen and Con the owners very friendly. Con told us such wonderful stories of the history of the area. Cannot recommend it enough for a peaceful holiday away from all the stress of the city. With the lovely Donegal town only a short drive away. We can’t wait to come back .

About the location


Ballyshannon 14 miles; Bundoran 18 miles; Glenveagh National Park 40 miles.

The bustling market town of Donegal Town is situated in the south of the county at the point where the River Eske flows into Donegal Bay. Rich in history, the town was founded as a result of the 17th century Ulster Plantation planned around the Donegal Diamond, and is home to Donegal Castle and Murvagh Beach. The area is fantastic for fishing, with numerous suitable rivers and lakes available. For golfers, Donegal Golf Club and Murvagh Links Course provide a great game against a stunning backdrop. The dramatic sandy beach at Rossnowlagh is backed by wonderful cliff views of Slieve League, and is framed by the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, making a wonderful day out. For a great taste of the lovely Irish scenery, enjoy a drive along the Glengesh Pass, while Slieve League, Glenveagh National Park and Castle and Malin Head are all worth a visit, or enjoy Donegal Festival in July or the Taste of Donegal Food Festival in Late August.
