"perfect for the just perfect holiday"

The cottage is located in a beautiful secluded and peaceful location per fect for relaxing but near enough to Donegal town to enjoy the amenities of the town. The cottage is tastefully furnished with so much attention to detaIl. It was great to have tumble drier, sky television, excellent WI-FI and a rich collection of dvd bestsellers and books for rainy days. The owner was not only very professional but also friendly and welcomy. We liked everything of the house and the location and we honestly cannot find any fault at all. When we go back to Donegal we would love to stay in rosswood cottage again.

The location itself is so peaceful & quiet with beautiful views of Donegal bay.

We really enjoyed our stayed & would recommend rosswood cottage to young or old.

"Perfect Cottage"

Found and booked the Cottage via www.donegalcottageholidays.com as we were looking for a Cottage near Donegal Town.

Contact with the owner was fast, easy, friendly so we booked well in advance of our stay.

We received very good directions and as we travelled by Ferry from Cherbourg to Rosslare and had quite e drive ahead, check-in time was pretty uncertain but that was no problem at all.

When we arrived, all was clean, looked great, great views of the area and the bay, perfect.
Kitchen well equiped with enough plates, tea mugs etc. so that it was not required to turn on the dishwasher (tablets provided!) after every meal.

Our stay was very good (2 adults, Child 9 and child 8 years old) and the location of the cottage is very good: Just 1500 mtrs of the Donegal Town south roundabout. This made things like Donegal Town, Slieve League, Sligo, Blue Stack Mountians etc. very easy drivable by car.

We didn't really use the Utility room besides washing, but it's spacious enough for visitors wou'ld like to store golf equipment or fishing gear etc.

Wi-fi worked perfect.

All in all it was very good, our expectations were exceeded and I can reccommend this property to everyone.

Gareth, thanx again and greetings from Holland

Thank you so much Robert for your Kind Words and delighted you enjoyed Rosswood Cottage and the Surrounding Countryside .. Your Welcome back to Rosswood Cottage anytime. Thanks again for the Feedback
