We came for the scones and stayed for the comfort. Margo greeted us on arrival with a basket of scones and all the fixins :-). They were fabulous. We are travelling around the world staying at vacation rentals wherever possible and I have to say that this is in the top two we have found so far. The property is very clean, neat and very comfortable. It has everything that you need for a long stay. These include, a quiet location, easy access to shops and some great restaurants, excellent WiFi, very good appliances and all the comforts of home. Donegal Town is just 5 km away and just down the road is the Salmon Inn. We spent a few evenings watching the sun set over the bay and even attended the local pig races at the Inn (although the pigs weren't available on the day so they raced sheep ... as you would in Ireland). Although the weather was quite wet during our stay we found plenty to do and places to see. Margo is a great host and we felt very welcomed and very comfortable during our two week stay.

I'm just back from a great week staying in Carraig Gorm. Margo was very welcoming and on hand if we needed anything. She even provided us with a welcome pack of fresh home made scones and milk and teabags. The gardens were lovey and a pleasure to sit out in. The kitchen was well equipped for any type of cooking. The rooms were comfortable and the views were lovely. I've already recommended this great house to family and would consider coming back again.

We stayed at Carraig Gorm in early June and we had a fabulous time. On arrival we were taken into the lounge and were absolutely smitten with the view of the bay and the countryside from there. The property itself is lovely and we had such a great time there. You can just sit, enjoy the views and relax. Not far from Donegal town, an easy taxi ride, where we enjoyed a lovely meal in The Harbour Restaurant and a ride on the Waterbus. We would definitely come back if we are in the area again. Thanks Margo for a great welcome and assistance in contacting Bernard the taxi driver who was so helpful. We loved staying here at your lovely property.

“Best Donegal stay I have ever had !!!”

I am writing this on behalf of my mother and father who have just returned from Carraig Gorm. They insisted that I write a review on the property as they have stayed in Donegal countless times and have had a mixture of good bungalows, horror stories etc. I booked Carraig Gorm for them after looking at all the reviews. They were initially going to book a different property but when I took over I showed them for the same price Carraig Gorm far outshone it. My parents have just returned and have raved about the house....beautiful property, friendly host, gorgeous garden, views etc. Stunned when they told me they had a BBQ several times (this is Donegal after all!!) Mum stated that out of all the holidays she has ever taken to Donegal this one was the best. A big thank you to Margo...you have a great property :-)

This location was exactly how I pictured Ireland. The rolling country hill, the sound of sheep across the meadow, and the view of the bay in the distance...paradise! This was my absolute favourite accommodation during our whole trip in Ireland. The house is gorgeous with lots of space. The views of the countryside from the house are amazing.

The house has 3 bedrooms, 1 downstairs bedroom ensuite and 2 upstairs bedrooms. The one bedroom upstairs had a skylight where we could gaze upon the Big Dipper as we drifted off to sleep. Outside there is a patio area where each morning I had my morning coffee and admired the landscape.

The owner Margo is a wonderful host! She brought us home baked scones and jam when we arrived. They were delicious! Margo even went out of her way to put me in contact with a local lady to help me with my family tree research in this area. Thank you Margo for everything! We will be back!

One of the best places I have stayed in. Owner was very welcoming and nice. House is very clean and surrounded by beautiful views. Can not wait to go back as it is close to many towns such as bundoran and Donegal town along with some lovely walks and treks.
