“First day in hell.....”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had booked and paid through Owners Direct, so had no central access point. Although we were all paid up the owners were not in touch with us again despite several increasingly desperate emails. The phone number on the website was not recognised. So we arrived with only a photograph to help us find the house; and no instructions regarding keys. We wasted a day patrolling the town to find the place, then we went round neighbours to find the address of someone who used to mind the property. They didn't have access, but phoned round to find the Keyholder.
Once we had access to the house, we found a number of faults. The cleaning was superficially OK, but the hob and oven were dirty and sticky, the shelf behind the hob was horribly sticky with encrusted grease, and the freezer had not been defrosted and was frozen solid. Finally the oven didn't work.
Having said that, the house facilities were about what we expected; the barbecue was a small tabletop or floor type, the garden furniture was disparate and insufficient. There were not enough dining chairs for everybody. Beds and linen were clean and comfortable, sitting rooms were comfortable.
Thanks to the wonderful goodwill of the people of Buncrana our trip was not ruined, and the rest of the holiday was very good. Come to Buncrana! But don't stay here!
