“Awesome views - Excellent relaxing break”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The location is brilliant - very secluded and the views over the bay were second to none. The apartment is just the right size for 2 people and we had a great time. It's close enough to Dunfanaghy town for meals out - but we were always glad to get back to the apartment to relax! The property is very well maintained with a high level of comfort. We especially enjoyed seeing the hillside sheep!
We were there for 3 nights and we left feeling very refreshed. Thanks so much for making our stay so enjoyable.

“Priceless view and secluded location”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This little place is located in the most beautiful surroundings; if you want rest and total relaxation then this is the place to go. The view is stunning and there are no unwanted noises to disrupt your peace....you can feel the stress leaving you as you look out over the sea. The bed was so comfortable and the bath&shower were also very high quality. The only thing we would have liked was to be able to use a bbq as there are no cooking facilities and because it's so beautiful you don't really want to go out anywhere else!!There are absolutely beautiful beaches close by, Glenveagh castle isn't too far either and it is a stunning walk.

“Quiet beauty at the edge of Ireland”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a fabulous place for a short stay. The bedroom is spacious and comfortable, the bathroom luxurious and stylish. The facilities to make coffee, tea and toast are basic but fine for breakfast and lunch. Dunfanaghy is close enough by and boasts some great eating places. The winner is the conservatory facing out over the ocean. Here you can sit for hours watching the light change, and the weather fronts roll in and over the land. You are at the edge of Ireland (and Europe) and feel the sense of wild isolation.
Donegal is full of contrasts and within an easy drive are great places to walk, explore, and visit.
If you want a break from stressful work, noisy cities, or anything else distracting, then it is hard to think of anywhere better. We will be back

“Peace, quiet & tranquility”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

I picked the cottage because I wanted peace, quiet and tranquility away from the daily pressures of life and that is exactly what I got!! Everything was as advertised and I was very impressed with the standard of finish and maintenance on this excellent property. It provided the ideal base to explore the area and was not too far from Dunfanaghy where entertainment, food and shops were all to hand. After a week in this magical location, with excellent views across the water, I felt refreshed and re-energised. I definitely want to go back thanks for a great stay.

“Perfect cottage with stunning views”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Booked only a few hours before arrival. The owner was very accommodating. The roaring fire and friendly owner made for a cosy welcome. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous in style, comfort and location. The amenites are excellent especially the Aga which kept the whole place feeling warm throughout our stay. The cottage lacked for nothing - truely luxurious. The views are magnificent and constantly changing with the different lighting throughout the day. The coasal drives and walks are literally on your doorstep yet the cottage is tucked away from view. Looking forward already to our next visit.

“Perfect Donegal Getaway”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

What an amazing time we have had! We decided a last minute break to Donegal over New Years and fell in love with the cottage and it's stunning views before we arrived, but nothing prepared us as we arrived on Horn Head! The ocean is so close and the cottage is right in front of it. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. It's the perfect place for people who want peace or even a romantic break, you really get sense of Donegal life.

Dunfanaghy is over 5 minutes drive but we just stayed in and cooked ourselves.
We highly recommend this cottage, it is the best place we have stayed in, in term of of comfort etc, it was hard to leave .... we are talking about going back soon.

“My Ideal short break”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
1
person found this review helpful

The scenery is breath taking and being able to look across the bay with a full moon and complete peace and quiet was magical. The cottage is remote enough to provide a quiet retreat but still only 10 minute drive into the village and about 30 minute drive to the beautiful Glenveagh National Park and castle. A short drive or a walk up the hill to Horn Head is a must. The cottage is well furnished and comfortable and just about the right size for 2 people.

Marie was there to meet us on arrival and while available in the nearby main house if needed, left us alone during the stay so you really felt you had complete privacy.
