My stay at derryleconnell Cottage was brilliant. The cottage is lovely and relaxing which was what me and my partner wanted and the surroundings were beautiful. We had a very nice weekend away and have already started planning our next weekend to go back and stay which will hopefully be within the next month or two. Kevin was just a text or email away answering any enquires I had whi changes was also very good. Thanks for everything Kevin it was lovely.
Jim was very kind and understanding. I hasn't any towels and he brought us as soon as possible. Thank you Jim ! But, is was not so clean... dirt and hairs on the carpet in the room upstairs, crumbs in the fridge and on the table. The Donegal is a nice area and the house localisation is interesting.
The house in Doochary was great, quite, country location. Perfect for exploring the area , we missed a few turns on the GPS and saw some really beautiful country.
Jim was very helpful with our late check in, provided instructions on how to use the water heater and sent over bath towels since we didn't pack any.
I would recommend you give it a try. My advice is to bring any food with you-not a lot of shopping options close by! We didn't plan for this and had frozen pizza for dinner after a long day exploring...8(
Jim was there to greet us and gave us a good run down on where things were and how things worked. The GPS co-ordinates are spot on so finding the place was easy. We toured a large part of the county from the house and found it to be an easy drive to most locations. The 15 minutes to Dungloe was great as it has many restaurants, supermarkets and bars. Even Letterkenny is only about 40 minutes drive. The house is big and comfortable and reasonably quiet (some traffic on the road). The house itself is probably in need of a major spring clean and some maintenance but has everything a family needs to feel it is like home away from home. WiFi is not available and should be a stand part of any house these days but we had great coverage with our own "3" mobile WiFi. The property is "as advertised".
