Really lovely house. Quiet and peaceful, just what we were looking for. The communication was clear and helpful. The host provided great advice about the local area. We would definitely stay here again. Many thanks.

It's an old house in rural Donegal, which is just what I wanted for my family to experience. It was a bit cold the first night we stayed there, but it our three nights there were a great way to experience this area of Donegal. It's a 10 minute drive to Glencolumbkille, which is absolutely gorgeous.

This is a fantastic area of Donegal! The schoolhouse was an excellent base from which to explore. Laetitia and Monica were very helpful with instructions on the operation of the Agga and on tips of the area. A great stay!

Great place to stay if you're looking to shut off from the outside world. Lovely town on the edge of Donegal with amazing scenery.

Our stay in this house was absolutely fantastic ! It's a very cosy and quiet place where you can rest and recharge your batteries. It is very well equipped with all you could need and the landscape around is impressive. It is located near a small village (5 minutes by car) with pubs, restaurant and a complete supermarket. It is a perfect base to explore south of Donegal (there many things to see !), particularly if you love nature. At last, Laetitia is a kind person, very available and Monica, the woman who welcome us at the house, is so nice and pleasant.
