“Sheer relaxation”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2017

I booked this lovely house for a group of female friends for the Halloween break and it did not disappoint. Stephen has created a real home from home but with extra luxury added e.g the games room, open fire complete with kindling, fire lighters, coal and logs on site, a great choice of DVD movies and a view over the Atlantic too. The facilities here are fantastic, and having 3 bathrooms is so unusual in a holiday let. Tramore beach, the nearest blue flag beach is stunning and we enjoyed long walks here whatever the weather. We came to Ard na Mara to chill, have some fun time together, re-charge our batteries and create lovely memories ... we did all of these and wouldn't hesitate to return in the future. Thanks Stephen, it was a pleasure.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed house and nearby beaches and views. Thank you very much for your kind comments. Many thanks, Stephen"

Such a beautiful spot. Amazing views. The house has everything you need. Every little detail has been thought about. Kids loved swing ball and the bambmingron net. We would love to go back for another stay. Thank you for a fantastic week!

“Weekend Break”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2017

Cottage lovely with great views but could be improved by having more towels when fully occupied, a hairdryer, and showers not so efficient if two are being used at one time.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments, the hair dryer is located in the drawer in master bedroom and only one shower works at one due to localised water pressure. Thank you, Stephen

“Fantastic - amazing beautiful - a dream”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2016

Ard Na Mara delivers exactly what it says on the tin. Pure relaxation in a unbelievable beautiful location; with amazing views.A total chill out zone. The amenities in the house are ten out of ten - you only have to bring your tooth brush. A car is a must as it is about 2 miles outside the town, but if you are looking peace & quiet plus privacy. This is simply a dream property. Hope upon hope we can return again.

“Perfect location and perfect house”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2015

We had a perfect time and we will be back very soon. House was very clean with everything we needed. Location is 5 minutes from the private beach. 12 people can sleep there easy.

“Fantastic location and Holiday home”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2014

We stayed in Ard Na Mara for one week in May 2014 and enjoyed the wonderful view and the comfortable house very much. It´s set back about 250 m from the altlantic drive and it has a wonderful view from the great windows in front of the house. It is very cosy inside and we had all what we needed (and more). The open fire was prepared when we came in and everything was very clean. If you stay there, you have to go the 500 m to the cliffs and watch the waves!! You can also go to a small gate and clime up the hill. There you stand alone with yourself and watch the fantastic scenery. But even, if you only wish, to read a good book, you can sit down very comfortable inside the house or outside on the great wooden patio and enjoy both, the book and the idyllic location. I can recommend Ard Na Mara for everyone who wants to visit County Donegal and loves the wild nature.

“Beautiful House, Loads of Space for Kiddies, Beautiful Surroundings”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2013

Stephen Quinn the owner was very helpful with advice and gave a very detailed welcome pack recommending loads of activities, bars, restaurants etc around the area. The house itself is beautiful and the views from the house were stunning! Every room was at a very high standard including the ensuites and the kitchen/dining area had everything we needed. The BBQ which is supplied was great for sunny days and the open fire in the main living room was great for cosy nights in. The house is very spacious which was great as we had 6 adults, two 3 years olds and an 18 months old and were very comfortable. Stephen also provided us with a cot, high chair and 2 stair gates for my baby. This made us feel more at ease knowing the kids were safe and the baby had what was needed for eating/sleeping and also saved us having to bring it all down in our car. The bunk beds were great for the other 2 kids! They had great fun running around playing both inside and outside the house. The garden is hugh with a seating area to look over the views. When visiting the local town the people are all very pleasant and there are a lot of places to eat out and and nice bars with entertainment at evenings. We needed a doctor for one of our party and they were very helpful and are only 5 minutes away. Everything else is also approx 5 minutes drive away which is great. I have already recommended this house to others and am planning another trip back already! Thank you very much Stephen, we will see you again in the ea future for another wee holiday!

“Scenic and Peaceful setting for family get together”

Ideal facilities for a family group, especially with young children. A very well equiped house. Located in a traquil and scenic area

“Spacious house in scenic location”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2012

We stayed in Ard Na Mara for 1 week in July. The house was big and had more than enough room for our party of 10 (6 adults and 4 children). The house has a great living area with open planned dining and living area with enough crockery and utensils to go around, The house is situated just outside Downings which has a great beach and is close by to Carrigart which has a Centra for groceries. We travelled to Dunfanaghy (30 mins) a couple of days which had a really good golf course €25 and a fantastic beach. The Atlantic Drive where the house in situation has a scenic drive all round the peninsula with stunning views. All in all we had a fantastic time in the house and the area,

“Excellent holiday rental with wonderful views.”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2011

Myself, my wife and 3 other couples rented Ard na Mara for a weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday. We flew in from Manchester on Friday night and Stephen the owner was on hand to guide us to the property and couldn't have been more helpful. We phoned ahead to the local pub and they extended meal time to allow us to order (after our delayed flight). Excellent !! The accommodation is excellent , very modern and very spacious and has absolutely everything you need for a wonderful holiday/weekend break. One room has bunk beds which is ideal for families for children. The views from the patio are wonderful and as we sat sipping our drinks in the early evening we only wished we had booked a longer stay. I have recommended the villa to friends and as a group we will all agree we will be back only for longer next time.
