House Rules

Pets - we welcome well behaved pets and a maximum of 2, there is a surcharge of €20 for 1 dog, €30 total for 2 - payable after arrival.

It is VERY important that pets are kept on leads when they are not in the garden, there are loose sheep on the roads and mountainside. I have a dog myself and I know from experience that most dog owners are very careful - thank you!

Thank you for leaving the cottage tidy. I don't expect you to clean but do wash up etc and leave in a reasonable state for Mary, thanks. Great if you can strip the bedsheets to help her after, thanks.

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in Greg's charming cottage. Just what we wanted to get away from it all for a few days. Cottage was very quaint and we enjoyed the opportunity to take the bikes out and explore. All communication was accurate and very good. Many thanks.

Unfortunately we had a few problems and only stayed one night instead of two. The guests who were there before us did something with the fireplace so there was smoke in the whole house. Yvonne/Greg however let us know in advance and was very sorry. Mary, the host on site, also felt bad since it wasn't her fault. The place is amazing but we couldn't stay there another night. I would still recommend this place, super remote, lovely house and quiet surroundings. Only thing I have to mention is that is was not very clean (bathroom, kitchen) and the WIFI didn't work at all and we also had someone to come and fix the shower first. I guess we just had some bad luck. Whatever happens though, the host will try her best to make it up to you and it will be alright ;-)

Response from Greg:
Hi Mara, Glad you thought the place was amazing, yes it was very unfortunate the fire caused such a problem, happy to say it was fixed the very next morning! But we understand you didn't feel you could stay the second night and we were happy to give you a full refund. We're sorry that the wifi was used, previous guests, despite our request not to use Netflix, had used in excess of 20Gb, which is the maximum we can get from the provider. Thank you for your understanding and you would be welcome back anytime!

This is a dream of a place. We felt at the end of the world and absolutely loved it. Everything was top notch and the decor and attention to details are stunning. Will definitely come back again !

This has got to be one of the best little cottages in Ireland, exceptionally traditional but with all the mod-cons and is in a truly spectacular location

Croaghacullion is a magical place. From the moment you arrive and see this picture perfect cottage and walk through her door your senses will have a field day. The location itself commands you to switch off and chill out. There's nothing like reading your book by the blazing turf fire while the candlelight flickers pure bliss. The nearby villages of Glencolumcille (O' Briens ice-cream, great wee beach) Ardara (spectacular Glengesh, waterfall and Maghera strand) and Killybegs (Melly's fish and chips) are all worth a visit. Then there's Mrs Molloy (the housekeeper) there really is "something about Mary" she's adorable and great craic. A truly amazing experience can't wait to go back. x

This cottage is wonderful. It's warm & quiet and is a much needed retreat from a noisy world. You can spend days walking the local area (Port) & everywhere you look is beautiful. Greg has lots of books to enjoy while there but also a Dvd player (& dvds). There is lots to see in Donegal & it is a lovely place to come back to after touring. Our dogs loved it & were exhausted every evening - the garden is fenced in but if your dogs are interested in chasing sheep they could get (URL HIDDEN) watch them. The cottage is everything that is shown, stated in the description. Mary is lovely, we seen nobody for the 4 days we stayed while at the cottage & only a few while out & about the area. Leaving the cottage was a sad moment but we will probably return as still a lot to see in Donegal.
