“Amazing views,very tranquil.”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here with our 4 children aged 10,7,3,and 1.And our young labrador.
The house itself was very well laid out for us,and had everything we needed,although as we forgot there were stairs,and therefore didn't have a stairgate with us,it presented a bit of a problem with our baby,just a little reminder for anyone staying with very young children.
The sofas were extremely comfy,and there was a selection of dvds and videos to watch.I only wished there had been patio doors in the sitting room as there wasn't actually anywhere to sit in the house and enjoy the gorgeous views-you had to sit outside to appreciate them,and we got a very wet week.Also the lack of an open fire was really disappointing as it would have been very nice to curl up in front of a warm fire on a wet and windy evening.

Unfortunately the garden was unsuitable for our lot,as the usable lawned space was small,and there was a steep drop into many fern-type overgrown weeds,and nothing to stop a young child falling into it.Also the dog,who regularly ran through the weeded area,got many ticks.The kids couldn't kick a ball around as there was so little space,and it just ended up in the weeds,so you couldn't get it back anyway.

The house was a good base for seeing the surrounding beaches and towns,and Ards Friary,which were all lovely.however,nothing was within walking distance.

With 4 young kids to entertain,and bad weather most of the week,we were not really able to make the most of the beautiful beaches surrounding the area,so travelled to letterkenny a lot to the mini zoo,and lurgy brack farm.

Its always a big risk booking a holiday in donegal if you are wanting to get outdoors,as the weather is usually wet,and unfortunately we got a bad week,but for older couples,or people travelling without children,it would be a great get away as McDaids is very secluded,quiet,and relaxing,but for us it just didn't work out.

Difficult to find - but worth the hunt !!! Views stunning -- pity not better out door seating !! House/Cottage fantastic -- would live there full time no problem -- family room great -- beds comfy would have taken home but wouldn't fit in suitcase!! Tv etc took some sorting out to get only channel 5 -- Internet although advertised we did not manage to get access. Great place to stay to explore Donegal -- fantastic beaches/walks in the area. Would recommend Rosie's Bar in Creeslough for all meals -- breakfast / tea / coffee -- great friendly service !!! Locals very friendly and helpful -- had a wonderful time not long enough tho-- hopefully back soon -- Many thanks to Caroline

We rented property from 4/4/15 to 12/04/15 with extended family of all different ages. Everyone had a ball. There is so many outdoor activities to do in the area from mountain climbing,walking, sight seeing to sitting in the front garden and taking in the beautiful views from the house. The wee town of Creeslough are very friendly people and would recommend Roses Kitchen for beautiful food. The house was very clean and full of amenities from towels extra bedding etc. Thank you for a lovely time, we will be back :-)

“Perfect spot for relaxation and "getting away from it all"”
Reviewed April 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

If you want noise, crowds and clubs this is not for you- on the other hand if you are after peace and tranquility with unspoilt views of Sheephaven Bay, this is where to go. We didn't want to leave. Photos don't do it justice, location is outstanding, spacious garden and clean comfortable house. Caroline was very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommend

Not sure I want to write this as i think I would rather keep this little find to myself but only fair to give McDaids the praise it deserves!
We spent a few days here over New Years Eve trying to get away from all the madness. What a perfect spot to do that!
The view from the house is wonderful and I look forward to returning in better weather to sit outside and sip a glass of wine looking over Doe Castle.
You can walk into Ards Forest from the house and down to some lovely beaches (download a map if you go...we got lost and for a while!!http://www.coillteoutdoors.ie/uploads/tx_r3coillterecreationsites/Ards_forest_park_01.pdf )
We were quite happy to eat in and took everything we needed with us, all the pots,pans ect that you would expect in a house are there. But it is only a short drive into Dunfanaghy where there are plenty of restaurants.
The house is clean and comfortable and a perfect base for exploring the area.
We will be back (actually we went back in Febuary for a few days!)
