Very nice house with lovely views, but a bit isolated. Lovely beaches nearby if the weather is fine. However, in our case, the weather was very cold and windy. The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming and went out of their way to help.

Enjoyed my two day stay. House very clean and could easily sleep six adults although living conditions could be tight
Hosts very friendly and provided a bag of home made scones on arrival.
Perfect location for those who want to get away from everything with beaches all within close walking distance. My family and I would certianly go back

The cottage has excellent facilities and is very well maintained indeed – very clean
The area is beautiful - quiet with great views across to the mountains, the local beaches are very near
If you like walking on the beach and a bit of seclusion, this is the place for you. Perhaps not quite the place for young teenagers wanting lively night clubs)
Cathal and Elma couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable, they will offer excellent advice on the local area and respond quickly to any issues you may have
Everybody is really friendly in the area – it’s just part of the culture

There are beautiful walks from the door and lots to do and see in the area. The views are spectacular.

All the reviews previously written sum it all up accurately: Carrickfinn Cottage is the perfect place to pick if you're looking for an unforgettable holiday in Donegal.

The cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The sauna is great for unwinding after a long day if trekking around Glenveagh.

Elma and Cathal are very friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this place to anybody in need for a break!

This is the third time we have stayed in this cottage. The beauty and tranquility of this location always inspires us. The cottage is clean and homely with more than adequate facilities for a group or family. Elma and Cahal are extremely welcoming and obliging, and you will not be disappointed. We plan to return.

“Fantastic holiday in a magical setting”

We stayed in the "Old School House" with our four young children. The house is full of character and our kids loved this house, as did we. The house was spotless and very well equipped from pegs for the clothes line to a high chair for the baby. It also has a lovely decking area to the side with a fabulous view of Mount Errigal. The area Carrickfinn has to be one of the most beautiful places we have been in Ireland. There are numerous beaches in the area, all of which are safe and clean and absolutely breathtaking in their beauty. Our family had so much fun, playing on the many fantastic beaches, exploring the area and taking in the wildlife. At the end of our holiday our kids did not want to leave and were upset about going home, so we will most definitely be back. My only regret is that we didn't bring our bikes with us as Carrickfinn is along with "Wild Atlantic Way" The owners Elma and Cathal are lovely people, they are so helpful and are only down the road if you need them during your stay. Roll on our holiday next year !
