“Perfect view”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a great time staying at Carraig Donn and would recommend it to anyone who wants to explore this part of Donegal. The house was comfortable, had reliable wifi which was essential for our son and was spacious enough for 6 adults. The view is the best part of the property and it was easy to spend hours looking across the bay. We were lucky as we had mostly good weather when we stayed but even in winter this would be a lovely place to visit. Our host Marietta lived just down the lane which was handy and she welcomed us with some homemade bread, scones and jam which was thoughtful. Overall we enjoyed our week very much and would recommend a stay here without any reservation.

“Beautiful house, Beautiful views.”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed here 1st week July. Upon arrival we were treated to homemade bread , jam and cakes which were lovely after a long drive. Thanks Marrietta.
House itself is beautifully decorated,spacious, and all fitted with high spec amenities. With breath taking views over sheephaven bay and muckish mountains. Plenty of activites all near hand ,And only a short distance to downings village (3/4 mins drive). Would definitely stay here again !.

“Great stay. We really enjoyed it.”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a fantastic week in this house. The house was very clean and comofortable and well equipped. There was nothing to miss about.

The views were fantastic. We often enjoyed our tea outside at the bench. We were also lucky to enjoy the full moon and the stars.

Carraig donn is a perfect stay. There is a lot to explore. We really enjoyed the walks at Ards Friary.

The next bigger supermarket in Carrigart is only about 5 minutes away.

“Beautiful house in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed August 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a wonderful stay here recently with our families. Upon arrival we were greeted by Marietta and a very welcome selection of goodies! The house is very comfortable and has all the facilites you need for your stay. The location and views are stunning, and the area has lots to offer including some fanatstic beaches.
Hoping to come back here for our holidays again!

“Beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed August 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What the pictures on Trip Adviser don't show is how wonderful the views are from this magnificent house. It very comfortably accommodated 2 couples and 3 children. The kids could have their own rooms and bathroom downstairs. Marietta provided some lovely home made bread, cake and marmalade for us on arrival. We had a wonderful week here.

“Lovely House, well presented, great location and perfect for families”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have been to Downing's for about 10 years, this was a fantastic house to stay in. plenty of room with a great view. The house itself was lovely. upon arriving we were welcomed and there was tasty goodies left for us, homemade breads, marmalade, milk, tea, coffee. I would recommend this house to anyone, we were a family traveling and the facilities were great, showers, washing machine, tumble dryer (all great for going home with no washing). If you are looking a place to stay in Donegal, this is a wee gem.
