About This Listing
We have two double bedrooms available and can also provide extra matresses for children. We offer continental breakfast and a peaceful location with super comfy beds.
We welcome visitors to enjoy the comfort of our home in the hills of Donegal, Ireland.
Our home is secluded from main road traffic and no more than three miles from the thriving town of Letterkenny in one direction, and the breathtaking beauty of Glenveagh National Park in the other. A short drive away from coastal walks and glorious landscapes on the door step make our Donegal home not just a stop off but a real retreat location.
Our home although built recently, has all the modern conveniences you would expect, and has some traditional features sourced from reclaimed materials and the underfloor heating gives it a modern twist which offers warm home comfort against the inevitable winter chill. Summer or Winter Donegal can become an inviting location for a holiday.
We will be happy to supply information to help you further if you wish. Sarah

I love the fresh country air the tranquillity and silence of our surroundings, the panoramic views, the country lane walks on the door step.

Sarah und ihr Mann waren super freundlich und sympathisch! Das Zimmer war sauber und das Bad wirklich schön :)
Sarah und Christy sind wirklich zwei ganz wundervolle Menschen und überaus freundliche Gastgeber. Wir können einen Aufenthalt uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Die Kommunikation war schnell und effektiv, das Zimmer sehr sauber und wir bekamen tolle Tips für Unternehmungen. Hervorheben möchte ich noch die Hilfsbereitschaft, die weit über das zu Erwartende hinausging.
Die Lage etwas außerhalb von Letterkenny ist sehr ruhig, naturnah und mit herrlichem Ausblick, dennoch ist man mit dem Auto in wenigen Minuten in einer größeren Stadt. Fährt man in die andere Richtung, ist man in etwa 10 Minuten in einer der grandiosesten Landschaften Nordirlands.
Our hosts are very nice and friendly, making us feel like home on our arrival. Sarah came to meet us when we couldn't find their place. It is indeed a paradise of tranquility, which is built up by our hosts themselves. The house is very clean and spacious, with great artistic decorations. We had a wonderful sleep and woke up to find ourselves surrounded by nature. Sarah is so generous and patient, giving us suggestions and everything. Thanks to her, we went to the best beach in our trip, called Tromoore (sorry for the wrong spelling) near Dunfanaghy.
It is a wonderful place to stay and I wish we could have stayed longer to appreciate the local natural beauty.
Sarah is a gracious host and her house is comfortable, spotless clean, and in a great location. I had quiet nights, excellent breakfast, and great conversation. What more could you ask for? I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Donegal.
We were felt welcomed before we arrived. An error with airbnb--due to us switching to a mobile device from our home computer--caused us to make this booking on short notice. Sarah and Christy accepted us with no problem. Everything was as advertised and we enjoyed our stay in their spacious two story home in a very peaceful country setting just minutes from Letterkenny, a very convenient jumping off point for touring. Sarah was very helpful in providing us with what we needed for breakfast and travels. We really enjoyed our conversations with them about Ireland and other mutual interests. We would stay there again in the future.

About the Host, Sarah
I am a down to earth friendly kind of person and enjoy having visitors to stay both national and international. We have opened our home to visitors from as far away as Japan, Canada, USA, South Africa, Australia also Germany, Spain, Austria and the UK. We relocated to my husbands home town of Letterkenny here in County Donegal from London, in 2001. Secluded from the main road the house sits 100 metres above sea level and looks over the treetops to the hills that spread along the horizon beyond the valley. Ten minuets by car to the centre of town and half an hour from the coast to the west and to the north the larger historical city of Derry in Northern Ireland; ensures you can enjoy both the amenities of the town, and the tranquil peace of this country location. My husband is an artist and also enjoys playing the odd tune. If you do decide to make it up to Donegal and stay with us, we hope that it will leave you with many pleasant memories.
