An amazing cottage with friendly owners who were very helpful and provided suggestions to places to see and things to do as it was our first visit to Ireland. The scenery around the cottage is beautiful.
Blue Stack House is an amazing property nestled in the Blue Stack Mountains close to the walking route of the Blue Stack Way. The house has commanding views of Donegal and the Atlantic Coast. The weather was excellent while we were there and we could see all the way to Sligo! The facilities were excellent and everything is clearly well maintained and looked after. The owners were lovely and made us feel really welcome.
Only 2.5 hours from the Belfast ferry.
We will gladly stay here again.
The house was perfect in every way. The rooms spacious and spotless. The views over Bundoran and Sligo town were spectacular. We managed 3 very long hikes straight from the house in all directions. There is easy access across the owners land onto the mountain side. Any of these hikes could be sliced up a little to make more realistic days. We also walked down to the Desert graveyard; well worth a visit. The owners Noreen and Con were lovely hosts. Con met us and gave us the full guided tour. We also spotted them in the field across the road with the sheep and in the car and stopped to chat. Both very friendly, knowledgeable of the area and welcoming. I hope to return.

Noreen very kindly met us at the Blue Stack Centre to lead the way to the house, which is quite isolated (and so saved a bit of map reading arguments!). The weather was best described with the words wet and windy but Noreen had the stove lit and a loaf of wheaten ready for us, we couldn't ask for more.
The house is large and bright, the bedrooms clean and comfortable. Lots of walking to be done around the area (weather permitting) and while seemingly very remote, Donegal town is not an unreasonable distance away should a visit be required. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get a bit of peace and quiet and enjoy the spectacular views.
