“Beautifully kept cottage in a wonderfully preface full location”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Wonderful holiday spent at Mary Kate's Cottage with my husband and two sons (3&4yo)

PROs: immaculate, generally very well equipped with plenty of spare blankets, good sized bedrooms with plenty of storage, quiet and safe location for our boys to play outdoors, plenty of space in the laundry outhouse for storing bikes, two sizes of teapot BOTH of which poured perfectly(!), nearby quiet beach is a gem with a superb little beachside coffee hut (although you'd be doing well to walk it in the suggested ten minutes, especially the uphill walk back!)

Things that would have made it EVEN better (please note these are such teeny tiny things and did not at all lessen our experience!): coat hooks by the back door, a few more store cupboard staples like olive oil etc, some laundry detergent (even with an honesty box to pay into), a bigger settee for cozying up on for movie nights on wet Donegal nights, a better vacuum cleaner, more head space at the base of stairs (an absolute impossible task!) to save my 6ft2 husband's poor bashed head!

But again, these such are totally minute details and def didn't detract from our holiday!

“Beautiful Irish Home”

We stayed at this beautiful Irish house 1st week in July 2013. This house has been restored to retain the typical Irish house, it has a wonderful granite fire surround with a multi fuel burning fire, good sized bedrooms and every kitchen facility you would need on a self catering holiday. I would totatally recommend staying at this house to see for yourself the interior, and advantage of staying here. The owners live close to the house and are very helpful with directions and local amenitites and local surroundings.

“Splendid Isolation”
Reviewed July 25, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

The house is at the end of a grassy lane surrounded by farmland which seems to be exclusively populated by inquisitive horses. Not having holidayed in this part of Donegal before we were really taken aback by the natural amenities on offer. The beaches are magnificent, Tramore strand and the coves around Rosbeg were great for the kids. There is a Pub that serves food nearby and few more and some shops in Portnoo/Naran. Ardara is only 10 mins away.

Our impression was that the house has been recenly refurbished. In fact the appliances were new. There is a well equipped kitchen and reasonably large sitting come dining room. Each bedroom has double beds and storage. The accommodation is of a high standard. There is an out house with a washing machine and dryer.

The owners live nearby and helped us out with directions over the phone and were at the house to run through things when we arrived. They kept in contact to make sure all was going well.

All in all, if your looking for a well equiped a rural retreat in a period building, you can't go wrong here.
