Lovely location
This well equipped bungalow is very well located being about a 20 minute walk into the county town of Donegal. Although we were only two it has everything a family could want for a week or if it is your first visit to Donegal make that longer. Excellent beaches are within a short car drive and on many you may the only the only people there. Donegal town has many facilities with restaurants across the budget range along with pubs to enjoy the Irish music scene. Also many leisure facilities. Finally the owner was quick to respond to enquires and easy to deal with

Cosy cottage
We loved our stay in Ballydevitt Retreat. Communication with our host Paula was easy and efficient. The house was warm and spotlessly clean when we arrived. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it for others.
