“Tranquil shore side house just outside Greencastle : Gorgeous”

We had a great weekended while staying at the boathouse end of April. Its just a few Kilometers outside Greencastle just down the road and across from the golf course ( which is good venue for food ). The House has a gorgeous setting looking out on its own wee private part of the bay - Idyllic. The neighbors were friendly and helpful and pointed us where to eat or go have a pint and what was going on in Malin head that weekend. The house had all you might need and more for a lovely weekend break- it was very well set up. Plus a bonus for us it was perfect for us to be able to have our little Jack Russel dog as she had her own wee safe private beech to sniff around in.
We look forward to an opportunity to go back here another weekend.

“Fantastic mini break !”

We have just had the most relaxing long weekend break in this fabulous cottage right by the sea. The owner, Columb, had the place perfectly prepared for our arrival and the open fire was a cosy treat in the evenings. Our 8 yr old son and our two dogs loved the walks on the beach and paddles in the sea.
The cottage was very clean and tidy with nice lawned gardens to the side and rear.
We would definitely visit again !

Have stayed here twice now, with friends, and we just love it. Character property as close to a beach as you could ever achieve, with the most beautiful view of a quiet little bay from your living room chair, with a very good open fire to comfort you further. There are a few properties around you but we have visited in September and February and there has barely been another soul there, and with a generous 360 degree grass lawn around The Boathouse and minimal windows facing the other properties, it really still feels like it is your own little spot. The owner is very helpful and allows dogs which is great. It is a character property, with adequate facilities rather than anything too deluxe but if you rate character and location over fancy bathrooms etc then I have searched Donegal online several times and genuinely have found nothing that comes close in this department and the value for money is outstanding.

“Perfect location beautiful views”
Reviewed January 29, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Just back froma 2 night stay with my husband and 2 dogs. Beautiful little cottage that's right down by the beach with the most amazing sea views. Location couldn't be better and cottage so cosy. Perfect for days on the beach and cosy evenings by the fire. Weather amazing for January- so sunny and warm. For a truly relaxing weekend I would definitely recommend.
