“Peaceful paradise!”
Reviewed June 4, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a superb holiday. The location is so beautiful and everyone that we met was friendly and kind. The house is very comfortable the photos don't do it justice, with an unforgettable view across the bay, great for bird watching and we even had a resident seal! Our dog had a wonderful time as did we particularly lovely walks across the bay at low tide. So relaxing I would go back in a heartbeat!!

“Idylic location”
Reviewed May 7, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We are just on the way back from the most lovely relaxing trip to the boathouse. It’s setting is simply spectacular. Our kids hated leaving after spending time there. It offers them wonderful freedoom in a very safe environment.
tip!... visit kinnogoe beach too when there, simply beautiful

“Perfect location for relaxing family weekend”
Reviewed March 27, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay in the beautiful boathouse. The views across the bay from inside and outside the house were amazing. Our kids and dog loved playing on the beach right on our doorstep. The peace and quiet was wonderful. We were lucky enough to have a seal basking on the rocks outside too . A beautiful base to explore a gorgeous part of the country. We would love to return and stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

“Amazing location”
Reviewed February 16, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

House location is amazing, even though it was February we were able to potter down to the beach and build sandcastles. Children loved it. Very comfortable house, with all necessities. Hope to be back.

“Perfect inviting and cosy with a stunning view”
Reviewed November 15, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The house is very spacious ideal for a family or a couple of friends. A cosy fire in the evening and a stunning view over the Lough. A good aria for walking.
The neighbors are very friendly and helpful.
The pub 'Kealy's Bar', not to mix up with 'Kealy's Seafood Bar', in Greencastle is very nice and serves wonderful sandwiches.

“Beautiful house with amazing views”
Reviewed October 25, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This house was absolutely fantastic. Everything was great in the house, all was in perfect condition and very clean. My only problem would be the bathroom. It is in need of being updated. The views were amazing, especially of the sea and golf course situated across from the house, and the golf course serves great home made food. The house is perfect for a quiet family getaway.
