"Unparalleled holiday Home"
The booking process was easy with Carmel dealing with every query quickly and accurately. We had enough information provided before we arrived to allow us to plan our break with no wasted time. when we got there (less than 2 hours from Belfast) the house was magnificent. Clean, well appointed with no need to go out and buy essentials. the view from the house is magnificent, probably the best on the complex, overlooking Inch island and the waterways surrounding it. All the major towns and attractions of the area are readily accessible with the local restaurants of very high quality. We did have the best of Donegal weather but there were plenty of books, games to keep you amused. A wonderful trip, highly recommended
hello - thankyou for taking the time to leaving a review - it is great to hear everything was to your satisfaction and your group enjoyed themselves. We would be delighted to welcome you back to Fahan and will organise a discount for your next visit.Thankyou !

"Spacious, comfortable and well equipped accommodation with magnificent views"
We throughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It was spacious, very comfortable, clean and well equipped, and more than met the needs of our family of ten - three generations ranging from 6 years to 60+. The views from the house over Lough Swilly are magnificent and the surrounding countryside is very beautiful. Booking the accommodation was very easy and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return to it ourselves in the near future.
We are always delighted when our guests leave satisfied as we try to meet everyones expectations and make their holiday something special. Many thanks for taking the time to leave this review and we look forward to welcoming you back to Fahan sometime in the future.

"the perfect beach house for a weekend !"
12 Beacon Hill is absolutely gorgeous! I've been there with my friends and family (we were 10) and we had a wonderful weekend. We did a BBQ in the garden where from we could enjoy the beautiful view. Thank you Carmel for preparing everything for us!
There is a beach in 5min walking distance. We knew that the house will be great (from pictures) but it was even better than expected!
I highly recommend this place!
Thankyou for booking with us, for your lovely comments and taking the time to leave a review- any time you want to come again will organise a discount.

"Spacious accommodation with cracking views"
I booked this accommodation for 3 couples and 2 small children (4 and 2). Throughout the whole booking / arrival process Carmel was really helpful and efficient providing ideas of what to experience l… More
Im really glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback. Just to clarify; the gas burner is 3.5 KW Neff appliance, specifically designed for stir frying and other ccoking methods where considerable instantaneous heat is required. It is regularly maintained and has safety cutoff features in the event it is left on for long periods.
As the house is built on a hill it has landscaped gardens and terraces that have been designed to make best use of the hillside location. The extent of the landscaping is evident from the extenal pictures of the house and I will amend the booking description to advise future customers that young children will need to be supervised when playing outside.
I can only apologise if some of the crockery and kitchenware was not up to the cleanliness standards that we pride ourselves on. It's worth noting we had a party of guests, prior to your visit, that left the house in such a state of disarray that it required very significant additional cleaning and preparation before your arrival.
Thanks again for the feedback as it only serves to help us improve the holiday experience for future guests in this magnificant part of the world.
