“Best Holiday Rental”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had such a wonderful 3 days at Derryreel cottage, the place was 5 star, everything we
wanted and more, the place was so clean and I must add the owners went the extra mile and added some personal touches. If ever you want a chill out this is the place to go and also so close to Dunfanaghy. we would go back again tomorrow if we could. we can not wait until our next trip. I would go as far as to say it is probably the nicest holiday rental we have stayed in to date.

“Even better the second time”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My family and I stayed at Derryreel a year ago and had fond memories of our stay.

One year later and great new memories made. The cottage is even better than remembered and the idyllic setting and experience was enjoyed and relived to the full.

The cottage is top notch and mounting the TV to the wall and the extra seating makes it even cosier although who wants to watch TV when you have views to die for.

Anita and John again where great and efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

Don't look past Derryreel for an experience you will always remember.
