Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent a long weekend at the cottage, I can honestly say that it was a superb place. The cottage is beautifully restored but still has the modern facilities (dishwasher,d.v.d player, Heating!) to make it a comfortable place to relax, after days out exploring.

The cottage is situated in a great location for people who like walking as there is a national park nearby, but its also ideal for people loooking for a secluded sandy beach to chill out on, we visited in Feb, so it wasn't quite the sunbathing weather but the costal areas were pretty breathtaking even at that time of year. The cottage has lots of books about the surrounding area, which is really useful as it gives you some good ideas about what to do whilst there. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break away from it all.

Delightful secluded cottage

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy, charming 3 bedroom cottage in an exceedingly private and quiet location. 10 minute walking distance to 5 or 6 quaint welcoming pubs and at least 2 excellent restaurants

The cottage sports excellent hi speed wifi, as well as a cozy turf burning fireplace. Kitchen offers all necessary, modern appliances. The cottage is absolutely turnkey. The location is surrounded by the most spectacular scenery in Ireland

A typical Irish cottage with many of the traditional features - small windows and low door ways!

  • 5 of 5

A great place for walking and for dogs. The house has good quality cooking and kitchen utensils. The best I have seen in any self catering. Beds are comfortable and every place spotlessly clean. Lovely open fire facility.

If you are about 6' tall you may have a problem with the shower and would need to watch your head in the doorways.

The area is a dream for walkers. Nearby in Gort there is a fantastic tiny coffee patisserie. It even caters for gluten and dairy free and the owner makes all the cakes. Wonderful fish sold locally a couple of times a week in Falcarragh and superb quality organic vegetables sold locally. You can actually go to the growers and pick up your order. Another lovely restaurant newly opened is the singing kettle in Dunfanaghy. They really try to please and on the same street is a super "health store" called The Green Man. They sell super sun dried tomatoes, olives, garlics, yoghurts. In fact has a great variety of stuff including herbs! A must for a visit.

From the house itself you can take out walking for miles!

A journey to horn head is a an absolutely spectacular drive. Take your camera. It is breathtaking. Glenveigh castle is also lovely. The walled gardens just beautiful when flowers in bloom. In fact the area has so many surprising little beauty spots! Any drive will take you to somewhere that is worth seeing. And if you are a walker - limitless possibilities.

Owner of house very professional, extremely quick to respond to queries and again probably one of the best owners I have encountered. Extremely helpful in every way. Again everything was clean in the house. The owner walks the extra mile to ensure the holiday maker is comfortable. Has the best typed notes on the house and wi fi a bonus.

Would highly recommend the area and if you want a traditional cottage experience - this is the one!

The Smith family with the dogs!

Family week in Falcarragh

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children, mum, two dogs and I had a very wet but very lovely week in this cottage. Although the weather was damp and cold the cottage was warm and homely. Beautiful beaches all around and we were body boarding loads. Loved our week!
