We've had a great time in this cosy but spacious and comfortable house very close to the beautiful beach, walking distance to Dunfanaghy and friendly neighbourhood. We stayed there with our children and two grandmas. Everybody loved it!

We were greeted by Kathleen and entered a clean, tidy and comfortable property. The property had all the amenities we needed. Not that we needed it but we had Kathleen's contact details; we did not need to use which speaks for itself.

Stayed in The House this weekend. Well located only a few minutes walk from the town. Beach is literally a 5 min walk and well worth a visit. All necessary equipment in house for a comfortable stay. Nice and spacious, bright and lots of space for a larger family.

A very comfortable home from which to explore magical Donegal. An easy walk into the village or to a stunning beach, with wonderful sights to see within an hour's drive. A wonderful base.
