"A piece of Heaven on Earth"

Our stay at the Cottage and the Barn was absolutely perfect! Ann and Gerry provided a warm, Irish welcome and made sure our every need was met. The surrounding area was so peaceful and beautiful. W… More

"Idyllic area, beautiful views, luxurious accomodation... Perfect!"

We rented the cottages for our pre-wedding stay in Donegal, with a few members of our extended family and their children. The place was perfect for the kids and the adults!

Ann bent over backwards to make our stay happy and enjoyable, doing her best to rectify any issues we had with the accomodation as soon as she could.

The properties were both extremely tastefully decorated and maintained and managed to be homely and welcoming for adults and children alike. The views of the bay from the balcony in the smaller cottage and from the terrace on the larger cottage are to die for! Mountain, sea, bay, mountain, silence, country / sea air. Amazing!

The location of the cottage is 'isolated' - which was exactly what we had been looking for! You will need a car to get to and from the cottages to anywhere else. The local amenities consist of the local post office (5 mins drive) and the larger town of Clonmany (10-15 mins drive away). LOADS of beaches and beauty spots within 5 - 10mins drive from the cottages.

Best part: The house, the area, the views, the air...
Watch out for: Showers need to be operated individually! Be warned or there is the possibility of blowing the fuse box.
