Ann’s place is so wonderful on all counts. Lovely first floor living space with the most poetic view of sea, mountains, old ruins and sheep from the 1st floor decking. Compact but has everything you’ll need for comfort in all weathers. We had expected to wander on longer day trips but there are so many incredible and quiet beaches within a 10-15 mile area that you don’t need to go far. New things round every corner. Highly recommend a drive or walk to nearby Tullagh Bay and a drive up to the remote shrine in the middle of the Urrs Hills with stunning views down to the bay. A treasure of a find and Ann is a lovely host too. Didn't want to leave!

We had a lovely few days in this charming and extremely well equipped cottage. There was a storm while we were there but we felt so safe and cosy in this very solid house. It has been very well restored with great attention to detail and with high quality materials. We would love to return and it would feel like coming home, I've rarely if ever felt like that about a holiday rental

From the moment we entered this cottage we felt at home. Ann could not have done more for us with a friendly smile and much advice. The cottage is very comfortable with lovingly sourced soft furnishing. There is much to do in exploring the beautiful country side, the very interesting famine village is a must and Derry is only one hour away to soak up some history and learn about the very present challenges, If the weather is really bad, the cottage feels very warm and homely. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the local pub and restaurant very good and friendly, It is seldom that upon leaving at the end, we felt as if we were leaving home and hope to be back. Thank you Ann for making our stay so homely.

Brilliant location, cottage was very well equipped, Ann (the owner) was extremely helpful and welcoming. Close to a shop for the basics and only a short drive to the nearest village with a small well stocked supermarket. Plenty to see in Innishown the Famine Village definately worth a visit. Exceptional food at Nancys Barn in Ballyliffen and the Rusty Nail. Even with poor weather the scenry was stunning.

Stayed here with my family which includes two young toddlers. The house was immaculate, well presented and stocked with necessities. The beds were super comfy and having them on the ground floor actually made it so easy as no lugging suitcases upstairs. We got lost in the dark after the late arrival of our flight and the owner kindly met us at the local shop and led us to the house. Superb hospitality. Will hopefully return and would recommend to anyone.

The barn is absolutely beautiful and the view on to the ocean incredible. We loved to be away from the city, enjoying the stunning country side of Donegal. There are plenty of beaches around and the kitchen is perfect to cook a good meal. The barn is well heated and the bed very comfortable. Ann is a super friendly host and we can highly recommend Old Phil's barn.
