Interaction with Guests
If I am not here, my parents are. I also have a very nice friend that is on alert for any special needs.
Of course there is several local pubs to meet everyone. Not a lot of houses around, but any neighbor here will help with whatever ya may need. And they are beyond friendly. Lots of animal lovers with donkeys, horses, sheep, cows etc.
It is the country, however there is a taxi man that lives near bye, bus service from Dungloe.
Other Things to Note
Electric and fuel is on meters and is payed by you on departure. I did not include it on the rental price as this works out less expensive for the guest.
I just ask that you leave it as you found it, and if something needs repaired for the next guest ,please let me know. Thank you
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
Trish's cottage on the Salt Lough exceeded our expectations. It was quite charming, fully equipped, had all that was promised as well as wi fi which kept us in touch with family and friends. The locale, although rural, was not isolated with abundant shopping available, traditional music and restaurants/pubs nearby. It was an ideal jumping off place for day trips on the coast, inland, out to the islands or ito Northern Ireland.
Donegal is a magical wild and wonderful place. You can hunker down at Trish's cottage for days by the fire, take walks, bike, visit the beach, explore the area or just read, watch video, or entertain. If you want or need it, Trish or her family will make it work. The family was a valued un-advertised positive addition to our experience. She and they exemplify Ireland's legendary hospitality. Donegal embraces the best of what remains of Old Ireland yet with all the amenities that anyone would want. No crowds, the freshest of air, excellent cuisine, quintessential Irish pubs, antiquities, superb vistas, lovely and welcoming locals - who could ask for more?
From the time we were welcomed by the warmth of her cottage fire until we regretfully returned to the hectic pace of urban life, we truly cherished our personal and unique Irish experience.

Trisha welcomed us to her beautiful home, the fire was lit and the house was very cosy, she gave us two recommendations; a walk in the area and a local pub, we tried both activities and had a wonderful time. The house was warm and we had everything we needed, there are instructions laid out for every practical eventuality in the cottage. The surroundings are rugged, the location is very private and the turf fire was the best of all. I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay here.
The cottage fully corresponded to our expectations and Patricia was a good host - guiding us friendly per SMS before and during our stay. Unfortunately we were not very lucky with the weather during our 2 days in Dungloe and could therefore not fully explore the breathtaking nature.
My second time to stay here and it was as fantastic as the first experience. Ideal setting if you want to get away from it all as the beautiful cottage is surrounded by the natural beauty of the donegal landscape, and at the same time. The cottage speaks for itself and Trish couldn't be a better host. Two visits speaks for itself. I would wholeheartedly recommend a visit to this beautiful home away from home. You won't find better!
This cottage is a gem! It is beautifully and tastefully decorated, very airy and light but still extremely cosy. Well equipped, very clean, very well looked after, and it breathes personality. Just believe the pictures. The surroundings are magic, looking to the lake from one window and out to the sea from another... Patricia was extremely nice and helpful with everything, and she obviously enjoys sharing her beautiful place. She was not there in person, but we were very well looked after with any questions and problems! Hope to be back one day... If you are looking for a place to get away from it all, this is it!
Le cottage se trouve dans un endroit magnifique, sauvage et préservé.
La maison est face au lac, elle est décorée avec gout, trés propre.
Elle est lumineuse, avec ces nombreux puits de lumière
Elle est très bien équipée, juste un bémol le canapé lit de la seconde chambre n'est pas très confortable.
Patricia n'était pas présente mais nous contactait par téléphone.
Son amie Claire était trés disponible pour répondre à nos demandes.
C'est un endroit magnifique pour découvrir le Donegal
