“Breath taking panoramic views”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2015

The barley corn house is a beautiful hidden gem on the hills of Errarooey Mor. My girlfriend and I spent a beautiful weekend here were we explored all of the exciting things Donegal has to offer. Driving up to the Barley corn house we were greeted by the breath taking views of Tory island. The house had everything we could have asked for, and so many extras. Sitting by the open fire watching the sun set was one of my highlights. The warm family feeling of the house made us feel so at home. I would recommend a stay at the barley corn house to any one, we will be returning again soon. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

“Absolutely brilliant holiday in a picture perfect house!”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2014

I highly recommend this amazing house in picturesque setting in beautiful Donegal! The house is perfect - all mod cons - very well equipped - large comfortable rooms all with views of the beach and mountains. So much to do nearby like horse riding, golf, water sports and lovley shops and pubs offering Irish fayre. We had a blast and have already booked to come back in the summer.

“Beautiful location, a wonderful place to recharge the batteries.”

This cottage is in a lovely secluded location with wonderful scenery and the sound of nature is all around...the veiws are breathtaking ... The owner was so helpful and the cottage was spotlessly clean...a very warm and comfortable place.... Will definately be returning.....

“A modern, clean cottage in a superb location, providing the perfect place to get away from it all.”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2012

We spent a week at Barley Corn House in August 2012. Having booked at short notice we were a little concerned that we might have to compromise on quality, but on arrival our fears proved unfounded. The house is situated on a magnificent, elevated site overlooking the ocean, providing incredible views as the light on the water changes throughout the day, culminating in fantastic sunsets. The beautiful, golden sand beach is a short walk away, and is usually completely deserted. Dunfanaghy and Falcarragh are a ten minute drive from the house. As a base to tour the North West Donegal region it is ideally situated, with surfing, horse riding, fishing and golf within easy reach. And, as a place to get away from it all, it is hard to beat. The house itself is really well equipped, and the spacious kitchen contains an extensive collection of cooking utensils. The owners were really helpful, friendly and accommodating. We would love to return soon.

“Stunning Views”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2012

Well equipped house, well kept. Although the access is a little tricky, the elevated location gives uninterrupted panoramic views of beach and mountains. Only 10 mins by car from Dunfanaghy or Falcarragh. Would definitely return.
