“Super accomodation”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2016

We enjoyed a lovely break in this accomodation. Buncrana was a great base from which to explore the beautiful scenery of the Inishowen Pennisula. The accomodation provided everything we needed. The Drift Inn in Buncrana is well worth a visit for a meal. Other attractions worth a visit include the Famine Village, Glenviegh Castle and Donegal Airsoft.

“Buncranna 2015”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2015

Each year our family visit our extended family in buncrana. This is the second time we have used this house. 10 adulds comfertably stayed on this visit. The house has a fantastic atmosphere and whilst a little more worn than our stay 4 years ago, everything still works and the support from patricia is excellent.

“Fabulous house”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2014

On arrival the house was extremely clean and had all the facilities which were needed to house myself and extended family for a very comfortable stay. Most welcome was the use of the washing machine and tumble dryer and all the extras that were provided to make life easy for the family. It was also lovely that Patricia had been into the property and left various staples (tea, milk etc) which were gratefully received when we arrived. The property was big enough to house everyone that came to visit and a great time was had by all. I would definitely recommend the property to anyone who wants a base to travel round Donegal from or simply to just sit and relax in.

“Fantastic house,great location.”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2014

Our family stayed in this holiday home for one week. The house had everything we needed and Patricia the caretaker looked after us from the moment we arrived. There wasn't one fault about our week and we will be back again for another stay, hopefully soon.

Thank you for such a lovely review, you were great house guests and look forward to welcoming you in the future.

“Easy Booking - Good House - Good Location”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2012

The house was well presented and had everything you need for a good holiday, if you get any good weather. All amenities are at hand in the house including WiFi. This is a large house that could take a lot of family members. Great for dogs as the garden is completely enclosed but if you have smaller dogs you will need something to block the gap under the gate. It is only a 10 minute walk into town if you want to get a few drinks without taking the car. Would recommend the house to others
