“Can't wait to go back to Old Phil's Barn!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just returned from a week at Old Phil's Barn, and we had the most relaxing time ever. The cottage is absolutely beautiful, as are the views. Cottage amenities are second to none and the rental price was very reasonable. We felt at home immediately and Ann the owner was so lovely and friendly; we really appreciated the welcome pack of food too; a really thoughtful touch. We had our Boxer dog with us for his first holiday, and he loved it too. I'm usually a 'have to do stuff' holiday person, but I finally got the point of total relaxation! Already planning our next visit.

“Out of this world”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I really couldn't recommend highly Old Phil's Barn highly enough and I'm actually worried about too many people finding out about it! The most beautiful, peaceful spot, we walked to Tullagh Bay every day and sat on the decking most evenings too. I really can't do justice to the scenery and the barn itself is perfectly equipped, Ann and Gerard really have thought of everything. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated we felt so at home here and are dying to get back soon. I'd really recommend Tullagh Bay Equestrian Centre too if that's your thing, we had a gorgeous ride along the beach. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Have just returned from a wonderful week in this lovely cottage, it was everything and more than we expected. Brilliant accommodation in a lovely remote and beautiful setting. The cottage is furnished with everything you need to make your stay superb and the views are stupendous.
We took our dog with us and she loved her holiday here.

“If U like luxury but in an area unspoiled by commercialism - this is the place for U!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My Partner and I shared a week at Old Phil's Barn with another couple. The place was exactly as the pics in the advert - even better, as pics cannot capture the wild beauty of the area around Dunaff Head. Two en-suite bedrooms downstairs, kitchen and sitting area upstairs with double doors leading to a balcony. Kitchen is v well equipped, even has a separate freezer while sitting area has views across Lough Swilly to the Knockalla Mounains. Very comfortable, thanks to both OFCH and a wood pellet fired stove. There is a small shop within one km and villages of Clonmany, Ballyliffin are nearby while the small town of Carndonagh is only abt 12km away. We enjoyed meals prepared from local produce - great meat from a butcher in Malin and fresh fish and crustaceans from a local fish merchant. We will be back!!
