If Donegal isn't on the top of your itinerary for Ireland, change your itinerary. We only had one night in Donegal, but if we were to do it again, we would have dedicated a lot more time to this truly mystical land. Allaye's place was secluded, rustic, and absolutely beautiful. Our host was wonderful and prepared scones for the next morning before she left us to ourselves. We wish we stayed so much longer!

Beautiful cottage in an incredible part of Ireland! My family and I stayed for 2 nights and we were like pigs in mud. Fresh scones on arrival, fire roaring, hot shower, cosy beds and all the books we could want. All the little details and odds and ends in the house enhanced our experience. And Maori the cat was a sweetheart! Such a beautiful cottage. Swell location to explore Donegal from. Can't recommend this place enough!

We were made really welcome from the start, and we ate with Allaye's family as if we were returning friends. One of the highlights of our trip was going for a walk with one of Allaye's 3 dogs (millie) who acted as our guide through adventurous terrain! The food we had was lovely, and Allaye's partner (Declan) even helped us start a fire pit so we could roast marshmallows whilst looking at the stars. This kind of hospitality is why we use airb&b.

Allaye is a very friendly and helpful person, her Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxed time. We really enjoyed our stay. The view from the cottage is absolutely stunning. And there are many attractions reachable in close proximity.

This is the best Air B and B we have ever stayed in. From the cosy fire, tasteful decor to fabulous scenery, this place is perfect. Allaye went out of her way to be helpful and there was lots of information on the area. Beautiful beaches and forest walks made this a memorable holiday. Highly recommend.
