“Fantastic family getaway”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

The cabin is situated on a hillside with spectacular views. It is very clean, modern an all you'll need. Michael and Sheilagh were very hospitable and on hand if needed, otherwise they let you get on with it which we did.

The views are something else. Sitting in a hot tub at 40° looking along the Foyle/North Atlantic coast was amazing. Great early morning walks with Buster the dog too.

Amenities: Magilligan/Greencastle shuttle ferry £17/€20 open ticket return (20 mins journey). From log cabin, Jack's Shop (1 mile) sits beside Cavanaghs Pub and garage, or Sean TI's/Shanties to the locals. Does a great pint. Drive to Shroove (approx 2 or 3 mile) and you'll stumble on a small secluded beach. Moville town (2.5 mile) plenty of shops and places to eat-in/takeaway.

Greencastle golf club great food and keenly priced (2 mile). Casuals but no football tops. Again, smashing views from restaurant.

Can't recommend this place highly enough, it must be seen. Great family break and pet friendly. We hit the jackpot as far as the weather goes but either way I would revisit without hesitation.

Thank you.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 5, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Firstly I would like to point out a few inaccuracies in the information on this trip advisor page.
Photo number 18 shows a large living room with sofas and armchairs, this is actually a photo of the B&B next door & is not part of the ‘log cabin’
The cabin has a main living/ kitchen area, to access the bedroom/ bathroom you have to go out side, this can get tiresome when the weather is cold & wet!!
The weather was quite bad when we were there & the noise of the wind & rain battering the roof kept me awake most of the night.
Also, the amenities listed on this trip advisor page is also inaccurate, there is no sauna, hot tub, gym or boat included!
A dishwasher instead of washing machine would have been preferable as some of the crockery supplied were not cleaned properly.
We found a large hole in one of the bathroom towels, and on 2 mornings we had no running
water until about 9am.
The fusty smell of both bedroom & living room was also very off putting.
This cabin does have 2 toilets one of which is an outdoor WC which we never used.
On the plus side the cabin was warm & hot water instantaneous. The wood burner also helped create cosy feel. WiFi was easily accessed.
This accommodation would suit someone who is used to staying in caravans, over all the cost per night is very overpriced, considering you can get a large double room with sea view in the local B&Bs for €75-€85.. this rustic log cabin works out €125 a night!
The kids enjoyed the novelty of staying here, but it was a bit too ‘rustic’ for our taste.

H i am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us ,that said i would have to point out that you also have posted some inaccuracies. the
photo 18 would be incorrect which i will remove immediately the photo is indeed of our guest house beside the log cabin and as for the access to the bedrooms you do have to go out one door and in the other door .
The weather was very bad during your stay we had very strong winds exceeding 50 miles per hour and very heavy rain during that time i am very sorry about the weather but i have no control over it. There is a hot tub,a sauna , and also a small gym .as for the boat it is in the harbour were you would expect it to be,you never asked for or mentioned these amenities at any time during your stay which are located 50 meters from the log cabin beside our guest house.
What you failed to mention is that you had extra people staying there without our knowledge ,and indeed i know you did stay one knight in a local b&b but the price was for two persons . You had the log cabin for six persons You only paid the stated price on holiday lettings web site were you should only had four persons staying .As for the water it is running 24 hours a day if and when required.there was also some damage done in the log cabin all be it small which i would normally overlook .Yes it is a rustic log cabin build of timber and you may well get a timber aroma in the cabin but not (must smell ) as you pointed out it was warm and cosy giving the weather conditions at the time. .The crockery i can not comment on only to say that the cabin and contents are cleaned after every persons leaves when finished their stay.
Again i am sorry you did not enjoy your stay but i have no choice but to answer your comments.
regards
michael

Two good for words you just have to go and see for yourself,the host will do anything to help. Go and stay go back to a time where you simply relax eat, sleep, walk ride, drink and possibly a little two much drink with the local community who are more than wiling to chat over a we dram

Just back today from this cabin on the hill. Not one negative thing do I have to say. I came here with my partner and my daughter Danielle who is autistic and it was everything and more than we could have hoped for. My daughter could walk about for hours and be totally safe and if you bring your dog or small children the same thing applies, complete safety. The views are to die for and the locals in the village are very friendly, it felt like we were part of the community. The owners Michael and Sheila are brilliant and very down to earth, we didn't have any problems during our stay so only met them on arrival and when we left but could instantly sense they were lovely people and took time to chat away to danielle, that means a lot. Thanks you to you both and we will return soon.
