      “Excellent cottage with modern amenities catered for everyone in a beautiful part of Donegal” We are just back from our stay in the beautiful Mia's Cottage in Urris, just outside the village of Clonmany. We stayed during the first week of June 2013. I travelled with my partner and our 4 year old boy. The cottage is beautifully finished with all Mod Cons. It was very warm and cozy and that was without having to light the fire or burn oil :-) There is also a private garden with plenty of parking and a play area for young children, which my little man loved as there was a slide and swings and see-saw so he was well entertained. There was also a Playstation there, just in case the weather may not have been so good. :-) Mia's Cottage was a great base for the nearby beautiful beaches of Lenan (Right when leaving the house, about 5 minutes drive) and Tullagh Bay to the left. There is also an equestrian center at Tullagh Bay so plenty to occupy kids. We picked an excellent week for it as temperatures hit 25c at one point. There are lots of great walking routes around the nearby mountains of Ractin and Dunaff and Mamore Gap to keep ramblers entertained. Ballyliffin is not far away either for aspiring golfers. I also had the pleasure if witnessing a Pod of Dolphins at close quarters on the nearby Doagh Isle, mesmerizing to say the least and the fact that they swam close to the shoreline was brilliant for my 4 year old to get a proper look. All in all, we got exactly what we needed from our stay. Comfort and tranquility in the beautiful surroundings of Donegal. Will be back again without a shadow of a doubt if the owners John and Dolores will have us. :-)

                            “Fabulous wooden cabin in a stunning location.” This is a first class wooden cabin. Plenty of room for a large family or two maybe 3 smaller familes. It has everything you would need a real home away from home and beautifully decorated a little bit of luxury. Rockhill itself has a great variety of entertainment for kids. The icing on the cake is the stunning view of Mulroy bay and if your lucky the amazing sunset. I cannot fault this place we will certainly be back again.

                                        “Perfect location and a great place to stay” We've stayed here four times now! Just a few 100 metres from Portsalon Quay, the golf course and the stunning Portsalon beach, this is such a great place to stay. The house easily sleeps the 7 of us. With a fully-equipped kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher and central heating, it had all the comforts of home, but with much better views! Highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next visit.

                                          “Fantastic!” We stayed in the cottage over New Year for two nights and had the best stay! The whole booking process was so easy, Hughie was more than happy to answer any questions we had and sent directions prior to our arrival, which were spot on and we found our way there easily. I believe Marion had been to the property before we arrived to turn on the heating so it was warm and cosy when we got there, however we didn't meet her while we were there as we got delayed on our way up, but she told us to call should we need anything. Absolutely everything was provided that we might need. The kitchen was well equipped with crockery, pots and pans, cutlery and glass wear. There were plenty of clean towels and toilet rolls, as well as extra bedding in the cupboard. The only thing you need to bring is yourselves and food/drink. There is also a folder in the living room full of restaurants and bars, and also takeaways should you wish to order anything in. The bedrooms were all a great size and the beds were so comfortable and cosy! We really enjoyed chilling out in the living room infront of the fire having a few drinks. Fire wood, coal and turf is also all provided during your stay which was a lovely touch. We had a fantastic stay and really hope to visit again in the near future! Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable and comfortable.

For those that appreciate such a setting, the small disadvantages of an older building are of minor importance. The region is great for walks and drives. In early May, the bay in front of the house was very quiet, a thing that we highly appreciate. During the summer season, nearby caravan parks will probably make it somewhat less quiet. The house is well equipped, but furniture and decorations probably make it less suitable for families with a wild bunch of children.

                                                                                  County Donegal lies in the far north-west corner of Ireland bordering the Atlantic Ocean. It is noted for the beauty of its rugged coastline (the highest sea cliffs in Europe, in fact), ancient castles, small seaside summer holiday towns, and heather-covered moors. If you're looking for Irish culture and a whole lot of attitude - come to County Donegal. It preserves the folklore and customs of traditional Ireland and has inspired poets, musicians and authors through its incredible landscape. You'll receive all types of weather here - from brutal rains and snows to beautiful sunny days to enjoy on the sweeping beaches. The interior of the county finds remote mountains and placid lakes. Easy access to other Irish hot spots like Derry, Galway, and Dublin via car or rail is a major bonus.

                                                                                  Things to do in County Donegal

                                                                                  You will never run out of things to do in the various towns in County Donegal. The sights themselves are unforgettable. Slieve League, a must-see, is three times higher than their more famous cousins, the Cliffs of Moher. Glenveagh National Park & Castle makes for an ideal day trip where the flora, fauna, and gardens could keep you busy for hours. Hikers should follow the Bluestack Way through the Blue Stack Mountains or you could always drive around Lough Eske for more views. Journey off the beaten path a bit to see Glengesh Pass, a lush grassy knoll. Step back in time at the Dunlewey Lakeside Center to see a traditional Irish homestead or head to the Wild Atlantic Way and enjoy the attractions and sights at Malin Head.

The house was homely, comfortable and well equipped. Kids loved it as there was plenty to do beautiful walks, waterfall and near by beach to explore which also had a playground. Teenagers did mumble a bit about house not having WiFi, but from a parents point of view that wasn’t a bad thing as it made them interact more and enjoy their surroundings rather than stuck on their phones!! As for the host Laurie she was amazing! Very helpful and informative. I would definitely recommend staying here infact my kids are already planning a summer break!see more
