“One of the best we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

On many trips to Ireland and Scotland we have stayed in dozens of holiday cottages, this is up there in the top 5.
Cottage in beautifully presented and in a quiet location although close to Donegal town.
The view is lovely.
Owner Gareth was a perfect host and greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome.

We availed of Rosswood Cottage as we were attending a friends wedding in Donegal.

From the moment we booked the property Gareth was very helpful as was his daughter Alysha who showed us around the property on arrival.

The property itself is fab and has all the comforts of home(including WI-FI). The views were lovely and the proximity to the town was ideal.

I look forward to our return and perhaps next time we will avail of the beautiful Rosswood House.

Thanks again Gareth for your hospitality & kindness shown.

“Charming warm and cosy cottage”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 for a stay in September 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this lovely cottage for two weeks during a very beautiful fortnight in Ireland.
The view has to be seen to be believed: It wraps you in nature's wonder. Spectacular over the Donegal Bay and out to the Atlantic Ocean on your own doorstep.
Take a small walk and watch the seals at play in the bay just a short distance.
Near to fantastic beaches, including the surfers beach at Rossnolough, and great pubs and craic.
Cycle down to the Salmon Inn and watch the spectacular sunsets whilst enjoying a full bodied Guinness.
Travel over the Mountains, to secluded white sandy beaches and azure seas, although the weather may be cloudy and possible wet, the atmosphere and scenery will be worth it.
Coming back to the cottage after a full day out and about including the Giants Causeway, and County Sligo, is like coming home with a warm clean bed and a hot shower, well equipped and clean kitchen would enable any chef to make their finest meal!!
Thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and would return here many times.
The whole family were fun and helpful, allowing you to enjoy what you wanted to do, whilst advising you of the best in the area.
Many thanks Gareth, I have no doubt this cottage will grow and grow in popularity and no wonder.

“A fantastic house with superb views.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I stayed at Rosswood Cottage with my husband and two young children and my mum and dad came too .The house was lovely and had everything that you could possibly need , the bedrooms were very spacious and the upstairs had plenty of room for the children to run about , the views were superb from the house and it was so quiet and peaceful , would recommend it and would love to come back again.The downstairs bedroom and bathroom was great for my parents as my dad is recovering from a stroke and was not able for the stairs.Gareth was a great host and really helpful , he was only a phone call away if we needed anything . There was no main roads near the cottage so it felt safe for the kids playing outside , we went for some walks near the cottage which were really enjoyable and saw some horses and ponies which the kids loved.

Thanks for the Positive Feedback .. Cottage is located 4km from Donegal Town as advertised. Not suitable for walking to Donegal Town. I now have installed a Wardrobe in the Utility Room with Coat Hangers. Thanks for the Feedback and delighted you enjoyed Rosswood Cottage..
