Great location for exploring the Northern reaches of Donegal. Maria was very helpful and knowledgable about where to visit. Lovely large bedroom with en suite. Great hostess.

Maria is a kind host full of useful information about places to visit and sights to see in the vicinity. The room was comfortable, clean and warm, and set in the quiet part of a beautiful and charming house in a remote area. The shower in the bathroom was great, and everything was clean and tidy. It’s set in the vicinity of a lovely farmhouse, so there are lots of cows, chickens and dogs nearby, but still it’s quiet and restful there. The breakfast in the morning was tasty and generous and set me up ready for the day nicely. The area is remote but close by car to Letterkenny and then from there to Glenveagh National Park, one of the highlights of my trip to Donegal. Well worth a visit.

Maria's place was great. We spent a night here on our way through on a road trip down the coast. She was very easy to communicate with and the stay was very pleasant. Highly recommend her Airbnb!

I had a lovely stay at Maria's house. The room is very spacious and comfy and everything is nice and clean. Maria is very friendly and helpful and gave me so many suggestions where to go and what to see in the area. She knows Donegal very well and we also had many rich discussions about history and politics... It was a perfect beginning for my journey through Ireland and very helpful for my project. Of course you need a car to go there and the location is quite a little bit of the paths. With a car it should be a very good base to discover the northern part of Donegal (which is extremely beautiful!), the Glenveagh National Park as well as Derry. I definitely would stay there again.

Splendid location close to lough - ideal for a quiet couple of days. Maria is an excellent host in a delightful house full of her exquisite ceramics and other art work. Accommodation is a large self contained bedroom with own en suite.

We really appreciated Maria's hospitality! The cottage is cozy. Having our picnic dinner in the garden, walking about the ruins, seeing the gorgeous sunset, and sleeping in a very comfortable room were all what we needed to decompress after a busy week. She even gave me a hot drink to help reduce the effects of my cold.

Hi , welcome to my airbnb profile.
I am a ceramic artist with my studio onsite.
We are a family of 3 living short distance from Letterkenny along the shores of the beautiful Lough Swilly.
Anyone who comes to stay with us will enjoy the unique beauty that sourrounds our home. This is a very quiet location with family cats, lots of bird life and farming animals from our neighbouring farms.
We enjoy meeting people and engaging in conversation, but if you like privacy and time to reflect in your own thoughts , there is plenty of space to do that too.
