Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a fabulous time at Walker's Paradise Cottage! Mario left food for our arrival and made us feel so welcome. It's a lovely, clean, warm and private house with great views to the lake. The fire was brilliant. We also really enjoyed Mario's pub which is right beside the house and had so much fun chatting and having a few drinks with Mario, Renata and Chris. Couldn't have asked for a better or more friendly host! We will definitely return.

  • The rugged beauty of Burtonport only adds to the over all experience of staying at "walkers paradise". We found the accommodations clean, comfortable, and charming. The big tub was a hit after spending the days on the trails & coastline. Our host was a fountain of information from places to visit to the area's history. The pub- my personal favourite- was a warm, cozy respite. A place to share stories, laughs, political discussions and make new friends. Our one regret was we didn't get to hear Mario play fiddle at the barn dance scheduled for the next weekend. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at Mario's place. This is a vacation we will cherish for a lifetime.

  • We had a wonderful time at Walkers Paradise! Everything was perfect, a lovely place to stay and come down and enjoy the nature, the silence. The weather could have been better, but we had a great fireplace and enjoyed it very much sitting in front of it. The bathroom is really large and nice. Mario is a marvelous host. We had some Irish breakfast things in the fridge. He always had time for us, even he was very busy. The bar was fantastic, thank you for the nice talks and the music.On our last evening we had the chance to listen to his music with the Tractor Boys live in a pub, great time! We hope we come back again!!

    Für alle Deutschen: ein absoluter Geheimtipp, es ist hervorrragend auch für Familien mit kleinen Kindern geeignet, aber auch nur zu zweit haben wir die Zeit sehr genossen!

  • A recommander, Mario est très accueillant et nous a fait partager ses connaissances de BurtonPort, Franck et les autres. quelques français ayant pris retraite la bas
    La maison est agréable et dotée d'une super salle de bain

    Du Homard, langouste et Crabe vivant que l'on peut acheter directement à la coopérative sur le port ruelle longeant l'arrivée des ferry (un peut difficile à trouver car non indiquée et ouverte de manière épisodique)

    Attention les récipients pour les cuisiner chez Mario ne sont pas très grands aussi vérifier avant d'acheter en quantité

  • Absolutely fabulous! Great views, the warmest of hospitality. Minutes from secluded *miles* of beach. Excellent kitchen and cooking facilities; very comfortable bed. Mario is a superior host who will do anything to help your stay be more enjoyable, including the use of his on-site shebeen!

  • Beautiful place and Mario is a wonderful host with a big open heart!

    The days we spent at Walker's Paradise were the most relaxing we had in our wonderful holidays in Ireland. It was great to chat with Mario and his friends at his little bar around the corner till midnight (or was it a bit later...), to relax in front of a warming fire (thanks a lot for all that wood and turf!) and to see all the great places Mario told us to see (the local museum he and his Friends are about to run, the beautiful beaches, the lonely small roads and and).

    The sad thing: holidays ends even in Walker's Paradise (and that far too fast!)...

  • It was totally wonderful! My daughter Jumi and me had a great time. It was raining sideways, the wind was bittely cold, but the fire in the chimney was burning brightly and the walks and views over islands and wild beaches were made us hungry. Typically irish = Great! Thank you Mario, you were a great host - time was to short - we will come back!

  • Mario was a great host! The house is located in a beautiful part of Donegal and caters for all your needs. Mario left complimentary, breakfast, chocolates and biscuits apon arrival as well as giving us Easter Eggs on our departure...Much appreciated Mario! The house also has a home built cosy pub attached where Mario and friends can be found chatting and/or playing music. There are many walks, beautiful beaches and rugged scenery to enjoy. Highly recommended!

  • Perfectly located to explore Donegal, Mario's cottage was a haven of tranquility and privacy, with lots of space. Mario was an excellent host who offered great advice on things to do around.

  • Dear Mario "The Lonesome Boatman,"

    I wanted to express my thanks on behalf of Natalie, Aminata and myself.

    The time we spent together at Walkers Paradise, we will never forget.
    Arriving at your little oasis with the fire lit, and the food you had supplied for us, was out of the ordinary.

    We are also thankful for your personal time in arranging the ferry ride to the island for Natalie and Ami as well as my fishing trip with the Irish lads.

    Then, to top off our weekend, we got to spend an evening with you bar-b-queing the fish caught fresh that day and enjoying quality time in your fabulous little bar!

    Donegal will never be forgotten when we see the colors yellow and green!

    Best wishes,

    Patrick Johnson
    your friends from America!
