“perfect in every way!”
Reviewed August 7, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed at Dusty's as a two family group. Lots of space inside the house, fabulous enclosed back garden. Lots of dog friendly beaches on the door step and a brilliant little pub a short walk away.
The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need including umbrella's and reflective jackets for walking home from the village.
There were lots of DVDs, books and CD's and a great log burner. It was just the relaxing break I needed. I would highly recommend this place!

“Great first holiday with our puppy”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Dusty's Place was perfect for our first holiday with our puppy. The enclosed backyard with plenty of room for our dog and kids to play was a real bonus. The house is spacious and equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We could not fault the accommodation and would recommend Dusty's Place to friends with or without pets. Thank you very much for a lovely time.

p.s. We particularly enjoyed Culdaff Beach and our trip to Malin Head.

“Great Space for pets and their humans”
Reviewed July 29, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Dusty's place is a great house which very quickly became our home for the week. Lovely beaches and walks in the surrounding areas. We also found some wonderful places to eat. We enjoyed Dusty's outside space as did our dogs - playing ball and eating al fresco!
Looking forward to our return visit.

“Perfect location for taking your dogs on holiday!”
Reviewed June 26, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Fantastic accommodation - everything is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. Lots of recommendations for where to visit. A selection of stunning beaches nearby - ideal for dogs. Breathtaking scenery. Excellent SuperValu supermarket in Carndonagh where you can stock up on everything you need for your holiday and it is open 7 days a week. I have been twice and am going to book for next year!

“A hidden gem for dog lovers and beach lovers !”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

I have just comeback from a week at Dusty's Place, it is indeed a fitting tribute that its named after the owners beloved `dusty'. It is a well thought out haven for a dog lover who likes to take their companion on holiday rather than cage them for a week. I had never been to north east Donegal and I have to say Inishowen is a hidden gem unspoiled and fresh with kind and helpful people.
I took my mum who had never been to the north west region and more often than not preferred to go abroad, however this little spot has changed her mind for the better !! Dustys place is a bright well appointed home deceptive on the out side huge and airy & fresh on the inside. A super large enclosed half acre for a safe secure playground for any amount of dogs we had 5. The beaches are huge and not over populated the sea was invigorating and i swam every day. There are many beaches to chose from, the area is scenic and everything is within easy reach for a relaxed break with your dogs. As a life long dog lover this is what we have been looking for and other parts of Ireland could well learn a lesson from Dusty's place ! Thanks to Eileen for a memorable holiday.

“Ideal for people with dogs”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

When you try to select a holiday rental that accommodates dogs there are a few things that are a must - hard floor surfaces, leather + wood furniture, enclosed garden, this place has them all.
Its a great sized house located in a quiet lane off the main road, within walking distance of Gleneely and an easy drive to Culdaff, Carndonagh and Moville.
Our only complaint was the heating, it seemed to take a day or two for the house to heat up and we didn't anticipate using as many euros as we did to get warm and ended up using turf in the fire when we could.
