"Great find!"

I stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding in Harvey's point with a group of friends. What a great find. It was so reasonable (especially compared with the price of hotels in the area). The owner Gareth was nothing but helpful despite a late night wake up call for directions really late on the night of arrival.

The house itself is amazing and the setting was gorgeous too. It probably helped that the weather was really nice. A car would be a definite plus if you were staying here. The taxi had no problem dropping us home from Harvey's Point after the wedding but you wouldn't want to be making too much of them trips given the fact that the taxi drivers don't believe in using meters and can tend to be a little pricey. This is not the house's fault though!

The house is so well maintained and all the bedrooms and living area/kitchens/bathrooms are gorgeous. The pictures on the website were true to form.

If I had to make one complaint it would be the fact that we had difficulty finding it when we arrived. That may be down to the fact that it was so late at night, we were all a little tired and emotional!

I would definitely recommend to a friend and I'd like to think we would come back again at some point!

"Fantastic house with stunning views"

We stayed in Rosswood house from the 6-12 March. We were met by the owner Gareth who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The house was spotless, modern and lovely and warm. The views from the house were stunning and we had the most relaxing week.

"Very clean and comfy, lovely fire, great location"

House was spotless on arrival and welcome was very warm from Gareth. House was very well provided for with brilliant big kitchen and a lounge area with open fire and great selection of books and dvds. Kids really enjoyed the surrounding area with walks from the house and ponies/sheep to keep them occupied!
Beautiful views from the house over the sea and stunning sunset from the house. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. An extra shower would have been handy, but didn't detract form our enjoyment of the stay.
Kids loved it and would definitely recommend. If we return to stay in this area, we'll be looking here for availabiltiy first!

"What a fantastic house"

We really enjoyed our Christmas stay in Rosswood House. The house was spacious, modern and comfortable (and well able to withstand the turbulent Irish winter weather). We have rented various holiday homes in Ireland, and this one has moved to the top of the list. Loads of room for our party of 8, very spacious kitchen and lovely cozy living area with fantastic open fire. Very comfortable beds too. The view from the front of the house is beautiful and constantly changes with the weather. Because it was Christmas we didn't get to explore the area as much as we would have liked (so we will have to come back!!). We did get to Murvagh beach a couple of times and the dogs loved it. Donegal town also looks like a nice place to have a wander. Well done on a fantastic house Gareth, and for your excellent service when we arrived.
