“Lovely Home and great for the kids”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

First, Gareth is fantastic. So communicative and friendly. My family arrived in much later than we had arranged and Gareth was still so plesant and helpful, greeting everyone at the house at 1130pm! The house was immaculate and in a beautiful location, right on the water. Ponies in the fields next door kept the children very happy and there were plenty fo grounds for running around. The house has plenty of privacy and lots of room inside to relax with a big group. Plenty of dvds and books for rainy days and lovely walks close by.

The town is a 10 minute drive and the restaurants and bars are great - I highly recommend the olde Castle bar for food (seafood pie is yum!) and then down to the Reel Inn for some music - it was amazing. The people at the bar were so friendly and the music and guinness were fantastic. Gareth even drove us into town to save us getting a taxi - what a gentleman!

I cannot recommend this place more - expecially for a big family trip. The house is roomy and private and great for kids. Rossnowlagh beach is a 10 min drive and just gorgeous. Also, talk about value, you couldn't get better!

This property is set in a beautiful inlet near Donegal town; the photos on the site only give you a partial view of this stunning setting. On arrival Gareth was on hand to go through the working of the house with us. This is an immaculate property with all modern fittings, beds, heating, wifi, Sky Tv and is a wonderfully comfortable property – If you fancy a night out Donegal is only a short drive away – but this easily as good as it gets on rental – so comfortable and stunning we stayed in and enjoyed the evening 'at home' – a special thank you to Gareth who was so generous when we ran into a few difficulties and made us very welcome to the area- really looking forward to a return visit – This property is suitable for any group, family, couple and really is 5*…….

Treat yourself….

From the day we arrived till the day we left, you couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces. The house, the view and the rooms. You could not find a better house to stay in. This had it all. We will be back in the near future. Was a great weekend and the weather did its best to make it the best weekend before the cold hits. Well done gareth keep up the good work and we will be back next year.

“Perfect Retreat with Perfect Access to all coveniences”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Two families with two kids (10-14 years) each spent a great week in the Rosswood House. Everything is as advertised, working, convenient with spectacular views of Donegal bay. Quiet and tranquil, yet in 10 minutes you are in Donegal town, fasr wifi access, shore is a 10min walk out the front door. I have rented a number of houses, but this was "as good as it gets" and can highly recommend the Rosswood House!

“Excellent house in Donegal”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Rosswood House is situated just outside Donegal Town , yet it's brilliant location would make you think you were miles from anywhere. The house is ideal for large family holidays and I couldn't fault the rooms or the facilities, especially the well equipped kitchen. A walk along the lough, situated minutes away from the house, is highly recommended and you will be able to see the local seals. Try out Doms bar and restaurant for great food and drink, and the Donegal Waterbus is well worth the money. The house is also very pet friendly with good sized grounds and walks nearby. We all enjoyed our week in Gareth's house and look forward to returning sometime in the future.
