“Cosy, comfortable, excellent value, lovely turf fire, great welcome from Kathleen.”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Enjoyed our stay, great directions and beautiful scenery, convenient to stunning Portsalon beach and lots of other wonderful places to visit. Kathleen met us when we arrived and made us very welcome. Cottage has been modernised, was clean and well equipped. We loved the turf stove ( Kathleen had kindly set the fire for our arrival) and the children enjoyed the games room. Thanks Kathleen!

“beautiful cottage and stunning place”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Tailor's cottage. Kathleen our host was a very lovely lady . Kathleen greeted us on arrival. The tranquility and beauty of Tullyconnell the town land where the cottage is located, was better than I Imagined it would be. scenic views and drives for miles in every direction, Not a street light in sight for miles, which i love. A stunning peninsula. I think the cottage could be signposted better, although there was a mix up with no directions being forwarded before our stay and with some luck and help of the locals in port salon we managed to find the cottage before dark. Overall, very pleased.

“A beautiful little haven!”
Reviewed April 8, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I stayed at Tailor's Cottage with my husband and 4 young children from 28th to 31st March. The cottage is nestled into the hillside and is approached by a long lane. Arriving at the cottage we were met by the owner, Kathleen, who is a wonderfully warm, friendly lady. First impressions of the cottage were that it was very pretty and cosy looking with smoke coming form the chimney as Kathleen had kindly lit the fire for our arrival. As we entered the cottage, we were delighted with what we saw- the fire was lit, there were fresh flowers on the tables and a welcome basket of croissants, jam etc in the kitchen. The cottage is much more spacious on the inside than it appears from outside. There is also a small games room which is perfect for keeping the children (and adults!) happy! Tailor's Cottage is a real home from home and has everything a family needs for a relaxing, fun-filled break in the Donegal hills. The scenery from the cottage is breath taking and we even got glorious weather so were able to have lunch outside on the patio! We would thoroughly recommend Tailor's Cottage for a chance to 'step off the treadmill' and enjoy some rest and relaxation!

My wife and I made our third visit to the cottage just before Christmas 2015. Needless to say, we loved it yet again. Please see my previous reviews for more details, but know that we both highly recommend this fine spot for a getaway. Thanks again, Kathleen!
