Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Georgina

Thank you so much for all your hospitality. We felt very at home in your lovely house with such gorgeous views from all the windows. Even though the weather was often against us we always felt warm and cosy and very much enjoyed the whole Donegal experience.

Many thanks

A lovely Christmas holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time. The house is in a beautiful location with stunning views. We were made to feel very comfortable. I cannot fault the property in any way. The owners were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely love to stay again in the future, and I would definitely recommend it to others who are looking for a holiday property.

The property was really spacious, very well kept and provided everything we needed. There were a lot of seats all around the house that could be used to relax and soak in the views. It was a very peaceful and enjoyable holiday. Everyone in our party was very pleased with the house. The owners were very obliging and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

Perfect for our holiday needs

  • 5 of 5

House was just right with good sized bedrooms, large kitchen and eating area as well as a lovely sun room and about 10 minutes drive to Rathmullan. Gina (host owner) was very supportive and made our stay easy and enjoyable. We highly recommend this property for a holiday or just time to chill. Tom

Fantastic property, clean and bright with lovely views, owner is so considerate and helpful

  • 5 of 5

The owner was fantastic she answered questions quickly, the welcome was great after a long day driving we arrived to a big smile, great handshake and wonderful basket of goodies.

Views from the sun room and front room are especially lovely. Outside there are lots of areas to sit and relax (depending on the weather), the outside furniture is solid not cheap plastic.

The house is very clean and comfortably furnished with plenty of room. Only missed not having Wi-Fi for the first day as there are plenty of books and cd's and upstairs a box of toys for the young ones and a small table football game.

There are lovely beaches within a few minutes drive, great base to explore this beautiful part of Ireland.
