– Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way! Tucked away in little villages and towns that snuggle into the coastline are delightful cafes and restaurants, where you can indulge in your passion for good food and great wine. Maybe you will hear a few words of Irish spoken along the way in Donegal’s Gaeltacht (Irish speaking regions) . Whatever your choice be prepared to be seduced by the delights on offer.
In Ireland we pride ourselves on our welcome ( " a stranger is just a friend we have yet to meet " ) and if I had one piece of advice for anyone planning a trip to Donegal or Ireland it would be to take your time . While my country is lovely it is the people you meet along the way who will make your trip forever memorable .....

I adore living in such a quiet neighbourhood where I can hear birds and bees all day and just the occasional passing tractor . We are on a popular walking/jogging route and within walking distance of The Silver Tassie Hotel and Spa.
Anne was a wonderful host. The room and bathroom was clean and really nice. She greated us with coffe, tea and cakes. She made us feel at home and gave us a lot of tips for our journey. The breakfast was great. Our stay was to short and we really need to come back.
We were very happy to stay with Anne and Gus for the second time. I made the same mistake and booked two nights, which was too little. We love the house, the company, the area ... And the cats! Hopefully we are going back soon....
We had a wonderful stay in Anne and Gus's charming cottage. Good conversation. Many laughs about Ramelton John. I highly recommend them as hosts when exploring Donegal, or guests when they're exploring your home county.
Anne and Gus were wonderful hosts! I stayed over a nigh with my mum in the Cottage room and the only regret we had was not to be able to spend another night! The place is so lovely and charming and Anne and her family are so kind and welcoming. I would definitely come back to this place if I ever go back to Donegal (which is a truly wonderful area in Ireland if not the best) and would recommend it to absolutely anyone who wants to go there. Maybe one of my best Airbnb experience ever ;)
Anne was extremely accommodating & responsive. I would recommend staying with her.
