“A magic escape”
Reviewed February 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A marvelous escape if you look for peace, sunsets and stunning landscape.
We spent 4 days in this little dream house, reading in front of the fireplace and listening to the wind blowing outside. A dream of quietness, romance and relax.
The house is perfectly organized, very clean and homely. The host is a lovely person and willing to suggest activities to do, places to visit and direction to surprising restaurants... Price is fair. We couldn't ask for more.

Very clean, lovely cottage.
Very cosy, lots of space and absolutely fabulous natural environment.
Kitchen, bath rooms and bed rooms are very good.
We are planning to come back to Donegal/Ardara and then we definetely want to try to come back to this lovely cottage.

“Glorious serenity.”

I'm loathed to write a review as I'd prefer the fewer people to know this cottage exists, the better!
This gloriously unassuming little treasure looks inconsequential from the outside - a wee house on the top of a mountain. But its tardis like interior has the intoxicating effect of Irish witchcraft - the comfortable homliness of your granny's house if your granny was the editor of Country Living!
Generously stocked cupboards, overstuffed sofas, a music collection you wish you had the time to aquire and pieces of furniture you hope you'll get left in the will.
If getting your head rested from the noise of modern living is what you need, this is the place to be. I cannot recommend highly enough!

“very comfortable cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Great directions to cottage and prompt response by the owner to any queries. Cottage is very cosy , tastefully decorated and comfortable- felt immediately at home. It's a 15 minute drive from Ardara up the Glengesh Pass and if you bring teenagers remember they will need a fix of Wi Fi in the local cafe everyday!! The peace and quiet is amazing and Maghera Beach must be one of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland . Hope to return again soon.
