Luxurious Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house Sanctuary Cove is - everything about it is luxurious. The description regarding location, facilities, layout is all accurate and the property was beautifully maintained. As one of our party said, 'It was like holidaying in a 5* hotel.'

The views are beautiful and the kitchen is stunning.

The area is full of spectacular walks and we enjoyed eating out at a lovely restaurant called La Sabbia and Maddens Bridge Bar. The owner could not have been more. helpful

I would thoroughly recommend this house and have already done so!

Wonderful Family Holiday Residence

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 sisters and their husbands on Holiday in the northern counties of the Republic of Ireland. Sanctuary Cove was perfect for our stay in the Bundoran area. The house is beautiful and could not have been situated any better for views of the sea and coast line. Sunset views out one window and Sunrises over Bundoran out the front windows. Others have mentioned the coastal walk and I too will make mention. Wonderful path for a morning or late evening stroll enjoying the sea breezes and salty air. Hearing the crashing of the waves below is a wonderful sound at any time. The home is set up for a large group of family and really could not have been better suited for us. All en-suite large bedrooms, fantastic fully stocked kitchen, large family/living rooms (2) one with a great home entertainment system and an upstairs game room. The owners were very responsive to inquiries and accommodating to our requests. While we didn't meet directly they were terrific to deal with. Pat who met us upon our arrival was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the home. Showed us everything we needed to know and was responsive to an one issue that did come up. The WI-Fi signal was very strong even with 8 people on at the same time. The outside decking and table and chairs looked very inviting but the weather did not allow for use of the outdoors. The welcome gift basket was a wonderful surprise and very gratuitous. Thank you! The home was a perfect base for our daily travels to Glenveagh National Park, Adara ( for tweed), Slieve League ( highest sea cliffs in Europe), Belleek Factory Tour, Marble Arch Caves, Donegal Town etc. I also spied the golf course but didn't have time to play. This is a fantastic part of the world and a fantastic home.

Superb property and site

  • 5 of 5

Probably one of the best sites we have been to. Terrific views and a brilliant house. Coastal walk on your doorstep and a few minutes drive in to town for all amenities. Secluded and secure gated property. Pat who meets and greets on site is very helpful and always at hand if required for anything and the owners are a pleasure to deal with.

Dream Property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our amazing trip to Ireland and staying at Sanctuary Cove was a main highlight. A five star property with every amenity one could want. Ocean views unrivalled, you could just sit with a coffee or drink of choice and take in the fresh sea air in total relaxation. The house is massive so no one felt confined, beautiful kitchen any cook would love. We will definitely stay there again if we ever have the good fortune to return to Ireland. Thanks to Colleen, Adrian and Pat for providing such wonderful accommodations.

Excellent - 5* plus

  • 5 of 5

Location of this property has stunning views from every window, especially dining and lounge seating areas. Interior design is amazing with a professional kitchen for any master chef! The games room has facilities for children, teenagers as well as adults. There is plenty of space in this property if you are a large family - we had 4 generations staying and we didn't feel overcrowded. The 6 en suite bedrooms are an added bonus. The coastal path, which can be accessed from the property, is useful for maintaining fitness. Waterworld, amusements and play areas are within a short distance as is the centre of Bundoran with its shops and pubs. There is excellent prompt communication from the Owners. On arrival, Pat meets and greets and gives helpful instructions on property facilities. Leaflets, brochures and helpful telephone numbers are on display. I have no hesitation in recommending this high quality accommodation.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11, aged 7 - 75 years, had a perfect weeklong holiday at Sanctuary Cove. The house was huge and every bedroom had it's own full bathroom. The owners and their representatives were wonderful and always available to help answer our questions and advise. The pictures and desccription of the home are exactly as it is. The internet wasn't working during our stay, but that was the only thing wrong. The views of the sea from the home were awesome. The people of Bundoran were so friendly and welcoming. This was a great location to tour County Donegal, Sligo, Mayo and Leitrim and meet our long-lost relatives. Thank you Adrian, Colleen, Anne and especially Pat for helping to make the memories of our Ireland family reunion trip fabulous!
