Just back for a 3 night stay. We got a lovely welcome from Barbara who showed us around. We were surprised how big the cottage was, as it looks a lot smaller from the outside. The cottage was perfect, had everything you could possibly need. Beautiful open fire, the smell of peat just added to the experience. 2 large bedrooms.... More

Just returned from a stay in Big Jimmy's Cottage and had a brilliant few days. We didnt want to return home. The cottage is spacious yet very cosy and spotlessly clean throughout. The kitchen has everything you need and the living area comes complete with an open fireplace and basket of turf to get you started. We were met by... More

Thank you for your very kind review. Big Jimmy's is one of our popular cottages being just two fields away from the Atlantic ocean. It is located in the quiet countryside and a haven for those who want a quiet time reading, painting or just taking time out with family/friends. We look forward welcoming you in the near future More

Recently returned from a lovely pre-Christmas weekend at Mary Kate's cottage Creevy. The cottage is situated along a narrow country road about 2 miles from Creevy Pier and Ballyshannon and about 6 miles from Rossnowlagh beach. The cottage was clean and warm and very cosy with a lovely stone fireplace. The fire was already set for us when we arrived... More

Thank you for your very kind review of Kitty's cottage. It is so close to both the Creevy Pier and Creevy Pier Hotel where visitors can stroll down to fish or have a beer in the hotel. Our 10 mile coastal walk overlooking Donegal Bay can be accessed from there also - which is very popular. We look forward to... More

We really enjoyed our week at Creevy Cottage! The place is just great. Barbara made us feel welcome instantly with all her delicate intentions (including a pot of fresh milk in the fridge for the tea). Burning peat in the fireplace every evening was also enjoyable. We visited the area which is I must say fantastic and we even drove... More

My husband, 5year old son and myself have just returned from a three night stay at Mary Kates. An ideal location for a relaxing country break.

At first on arrival the cottage was not located as advised in the Imagine Ireland website which had stated "near the water". However I totally disagree with the previous critic-the cottage was far from 'shabby'. Three generous sized bedrooms, one en suite. A large open plan kitchen, dining room and living room.Patio doors lead to a large garden area with... More

Thank you for your kind comments in relation to our cottage Mary Kates. I was sorry that you expected to be booked into Kitty's Cottage but as we discussed, the agency does not advertise the namesof the cottages as they want their clients to book through them. They do advertise that Mary Kates Cottage is 1 mile away from Creevy... More

We have stayed many times in Kerry, this was our first trip to Donegal and not our last it was beautiful. We found Mary Kate's Cottage to be rather small and shabby.
