“Will Be Back!”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This place is lovely! Fantastic little cottage with everything that you could possibly need for a self catering break. Lovely peaceful location - ideal for exploring the countryside and coastal areas and then retreating back to of an evening. We met the owners Marion and Sean briefly on check-in and they told us to just ask if there was anything we needed. There was plenty of information brochures on 'things to do' in the cottage - we found these really helpful. Once again a lovely break and we will definitely be back!.

“Excellent hidden gem in Killygordon”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I stayed at River Finn cottage with my 4 children at the beginning of August for one week. We all had a fabulous time. The cottage itself was beautiful in private grounds. It was very clean & tidy & well equipped. The owners were very helpful & friendly too. My children loved the local leisure centre. We spent hours in the huge swimming pool! There's plenty to do... We travelled to Donegal Town, Letterkenny, Glenveagh Castle & the local forest. There's plenty of lovely shops in Ballybofey/Stranorlar too & the people are very friendly. I'd definitely stay at River Finn cottage again & would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful retreat but within reach of activities/entertainment etc.

Stayed at River Finn cottage for two nights. It Is situated in a beautiful location. Owners were helpful from the moment we arrived and made us fee right at home. It is centrally located to all amenities and we enjoyed bike rides in the country and good shopping for my wife wife in the local town. Will definitely be returning again.

“River Finn Cottage - an excellent base if you want to explore Donegal & The North”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed for a week at River Finn Cottage with Caspar our small Bichon Frise and we all had a great time. The cottage was easy to find and we were very comfortable. In truth, it felt more like a home than a holiday let. It had all the amenities you would expect and then some!

We definitely expect to be back as there is so much more left for us to see!
