“Perfect week that really surpassed our expectations!”

My husband and our 3 children stayed at this beautiful cottage for one week. Our children range in age from 16 to 3 yrs old so finding a holiday to suit everyone is quite a challenge. However, we had a blissful, stress free holiday at this cottage. Before we traveled Hugh ensured that we had the directions and was on hand at any time if we needed assistance. However, as the cottage was immaculately presented and catered for everything we could need, we only had to ring to say goodbye and thank you! The house, furniture, bed linen, towels etc were spotless and the 3 large bedrooms more than accommodated our family. We were most impressed with the large family kitchen that really did contain everything we needed for day to day cooking for our family. Not once did we comment that we would have needed anything other than what was there. Hugh also very thoughtfully included books, magazines, dvds and an instruction manual/welcome pack which were appreciated. As the cottage has a downstairs bedroom and bathroom it would also be excellent for visitors with mobility difficulties

The cottage had a large secure garden to the rear with lots of room for the children to play, for us to eat outside and also to barbecue. The locality itself is a quite street which is easily walking distance to the town centre of Moville with all of it's shops and facilities.

Moville itself has everything you need including a bank, pharmacy, restaurants, bars, grocery stores etc. We also found it to be less expensive than other parts of Donegal which we have visited. The younger children really enjoyed the seaside park and the nearby Leisure Land which is great value for money at 10 euro for unlimited soft play and amusement rides. Our eldest enjoyed daily fishing off the pier and our visit to Fort Dunree which is definitely worth a visit. We explored the whole peninsula and thoroughly enjoyed our day trips

All in all I would recommend staying at this cottage and holidaying in this area of Donegal. I am not easily pleased but would say without hesitation that this cottage is faultless and we cannot wait to return

“Great place!!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Had a wonderful 4 day stay here in Moville. Very well equipped house far beyond the usual for self-catering. Close to a lovely shore walk hat was a great way to start and end the day. Lovely area. Enjoyed the Area sight seeing and the little ferry at Greencastle was great for getting us to the Antrim coast as well. Highly recommended!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We love the stunning Inishowen Peninsula and have been coming for years staying in a nearby hotel. This time we needed more space and flexibility and this accommodation fitted the bill! A 5-10 min walk to Moville centre to the stunning Shore walkway and local amenities. Quiet residential area for a relaxing stay. Accommodation provided all home from home essentials. We would definitely recommend.

“Beautifully presented house ~ everything you would ever need ~and more”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Just back from another fabulous stay at Palmtree Cottage,myself and my four sisters stayed here. The house contains everything you would ever need for your stay, not to mention all the charming books, magazines and dvds on offer.
All the rooms are beautifully presented, i particularly liked the living rooms gorgeous decor and its open fire. Both the kitchen and bathroom are a delight, as are the three bedrooms . The cottage is only a few minutes walk into the town or down to the shore. Moville is a magical wonderful charming place. I didnt want to come home and i am already looking forward to my return. Thanks Hugh for everything~we loved our stay at Palmtree Cottage.

“Fantastic house. Beautifully presented with everything required for a holiday away.”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

My partner and I arrived at the property at 1930 on a very cold December evening.
The property had been made ready and was warm and welcoming. We were immediately impressed by how well the property was presented. Everything was immaculate and equipped with everything a short or long stay would require. Being December we had the fire burning in the living room making it even more cosy.

The area itself is fantastic. Even with the biting wind we walked along the shore path as far as the next town. We only stayed for 2 nights and even so managed to enjoy a decent pint of Guiness in a small pub in town followed by a fantastic meal in a restaurant near by.

Breakfast was then taken on New Years morning after another long walk in a local café.

The house and town has everything you would need in order to enjoy a relaxed get away in a beautiful location.

I would certainly go again and am hoping to do so during the summer months for a longer stay.
