Really enjoyed our stay at Derryreel Cottage. The surrounding scenery was beautiful and the house itself was very homely, peaceful and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

“Ideal Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Derryreel Cottage was the perfect home away from home. From start to finish, Anita could not have been more helpful and her kindness was very much appreciated. Everything in the cottage is of a very high standard, we could not have wanted more. The location was beautiful, short drive into Dunfanaghy and beautiful beaches. We can not wait to return!

“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed for a week and sorry we hadn't booked it for 2. Anita was so very helpful, the cottage was immaculate, and for us the perfect location at the foot the mountains and not far from the beach. We had friends down who have already made a booking ad they were so impressed. All being well we hope to be there next year but for 2 wks this time.

“Great wee home away from home”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

First thing you notice is how warm cosy this place is when entering. The geothermal heating really is a credit to this place. My weather for the week was not great but really nice to come back from walking,cycling or driving to a nicely heated house, and the wood burner is a added bonus.
The the beds were comfortable even with my 2 broken ribs. The kitchen has everything you need for your stay and the hot water geezer is great for when you want a cuppa.
Great views of the surrounding landscape and I did get one really nice sunset which was very impressive.
It is within a short driving distance of local shops, bars and markets.
I would highly recommend this and will indeed be back at some stage in the near future.

“Very high standard at a very good price”
Reviewed June 19, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Very nice spacious house, recently built, with excellent facilities.
It even has geothermal heating, which would make it an excellent choice for the cooler months.
The special tap in the kitchen that supplied instant boiling water, thus dispensing with the need for a kettle, was fantastic.
The sunsets were great due to the uninterrupted view to the northwest, and the wildlife was great, with sky larks overhead and very entertaining hares in the garden.

“Well worth a stay”
Reviewed May 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We visited here on the bank holiday weekend in may. We wanted to get away from very day things of work and busy lives. We booked this cottage and really did love it. The cottage was on its own looking over at the lovely mountains. Great views from each room.Nice and peaceful. Are kids had plenty of room to run around. The cottage had everything you could ask for and more with great cooking facility . Big spacious bedrooms with a view. Lovely and warm with underfloor heating. A nice warm and welcoming house . Price was great too. Well worth a visit for a nice break and family time together. John and Anita are very welcoming. Thanks again
