About this listing
I have a beautiful three bedroom cottage with panoramic views of Falcarragh beach and sand dunes. The premise has a welcoming, informal and cosy feel with a lovely open fire going when it gets chilly.
The cottage has a kitchen, large living room and a shared bathroom with electric shower.
I am renting two rooms which have double beds, wooden floors and large windows. These spacious rooms are comfortable, cosy and relaxing. There are drawers and wardrobes in both rooms and the bathroom is located on the same floor.
Guests have access to their bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. There will be no access to upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to interact with guests and help them with their needs. I will also be respectful of their space.
The area is close to the beach and the mountains. It's great for surfing, kite surfing, kayaking , hill walking there is also a local golf course.
The local pubs have traditional Irish music if you fancy a pint of the black stuff after your days sporting activities.
The area is steeped in history and local mythology so can provide guests a tour and information of the area they wish .
There is three bus services that pass through Falcarragh , Feda O Donnel who has a daily service to Galway, John McGinley , from Dublin and Padraig Gallagher from Belfast all have their timetables on their websites.
Other Things to Note
I can provide hiking, rock climbing and kayaking sessions , just ask me for details.
Smokers must smoke outside.
We enjoyed our stay at Conor's place very much. We felt very welcome and conor gave us very helpful advices about beautiful Spots in the are. We would defenetly come back!
Maison pas facile à trouver ! Conor est venu nous chercher sans problème ! La chambre était comme sur la Photo ! A notre arrivée Conor nous a expliqué que sa maison était la notre ! Et nous a indiqué ce qu'il y avait a faire notamment la fête nocturne sur la plage de falcarragh qui était vraiment à voir ! Logement simple mais bien avec une vue magnifique sur la baie ! Bref un très bon rapport qualité prix ! Merci Conor
Nous sommes extrêmement déçus de cette première expérience Airbnb. Les choses peuvent être très simple, mais un véritable accueil demande de l'investissement. Ici, ce n'est pas le cas, mais plutôt le laisser aller le plus total. Nous achevons notre parcours de presque 3 semaines le long de la Wild Atlantic Way. Ce lieu est en décalage avec tout ce que nous avons trouvé par ailleurs (locations via Airbnb ou autres), en qualité d'accueil et surtout sur le plan propreté ; la maison n'est pas tenue.
Nous avons demandé à être remboursé pour les 2 derniers jours non passés, en respectant à la lettre les règles Airbnb, mais Connor a refusé et Airbnb répond aux abonnés absents (alors qu'il parlent de jouer un rôle de médiateur).
Nous déconseillons donc tant cette location qu'Airbnb qui ne font pas leur travail. Nous avons payé pour ces 3 semaines entre 150 et 200 euros à Airbnb alors qu'un simple guide du routard à 14 euros aurait fait beaucoup mieux.
Conor is a very kind host! The environment is wonderful and the cloudy weather enhances the beauty of the place. The Wild Atlantic Coast is spectacular and very special and it has many nice points. Conor was very friendly and recommended us the most important sites for visiting. It's an excellent place to a quiet holidays. The house is simple but warm. Thanks Conor for your hospitality!!
Overall, a great experience. I really appreciated Conor's knowledge of the area, including discussions about the culture and history of the area and being taught some Gaelic words and phrases. Conor showed us some great hikes and things to see and even got us onto a rock climbing tour. If you're looking for an unconventional but authentic experience, this is a good place to stay.
Dear Conoer, you are a very patient person. thank you for let us staying with you even that we were a little bit noisy and took a lot of room. Your tipps were perfect for us and we were glad that we could have these wonderful days in Donengall.
We have'nt been disappointed by the wiev, the amical reception, the all kinds of services offered and really enjoyed the suggested sideloops proposed by you, Connor. We could, however, easily endure a little more cleaned up kitchen and the space around the house,
thanks for everything again,

About the Host, Conor
I am an easy going, flexible and friendly guy. I enjoy socialising, surfing, mediating and hiking to name a few hobbies. I am a native Irish speaker. If you want to learn a few words I'd be happy to teach you. I have recently taken up surfing and can tell you where to catch the best waves. I have been known to climb the legendary Muckish and Errigal mountains.
My local knowledge is quite extensive and I regularly take friends and visitors on tours of the local area including Glenveagh national park, Falcarragh and Dun Lewey. I genuinely take pride in sharing stories, myths and history about this beautiful area.
I would be happy to recommend any activities for you and I will do my very best to ensure your stay is memorable.
