It's a little bit of John's Point is a very special and beautiful place. We are very grateful to Michael for so warmly hosting us. We felt welcomed as friends -- and yet were taken care of like honored guests. The location is breathtaking. The home is modest, a second home that feels like it is owned and cherished by an Irish man with good taste. (...which it is!) Michael is an intelligent, thoughtful, and naturally generous guy. We enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, delightful conversations, and spot-on recommendations for activities and eating experiences. We were in the upstairs bedroom which has a good firm bed, nice linens and pillows, and lovely view of the coastline. I chose to try to get to know the donkeys, and it was fun. We had a beautiful walk to the lighthouse at the end of the point, where we met a plein-air painter. We had so many wonderful experiences in the area -- I highly recommend a trip to this region in Ireland... and Michael's can't be beat as an authentic and beautiful place to stay!

we didn't meet Michael but he gave us all the information that we needed for our arrival. The farmhouse is set in a beautiful location and we enjoyed the animals. Very comfortable and a lovely experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with this beautiful soul in the most beautiful area. We could not get enough of the view while having delicious breakfasts every morning, and loved our conversations, the area... and the donkeys, hens, sheep and goat! Michael was an excellent host: very friendly, helpful, informative and caring. Thank you!

We spent 13 nights in a secluded, unspoiled paradise. The place is absolutely unique: your room is facing the sea and you will just hear the sound of the wind ! I would not be able to conceive a stay in Ireland in another place; the most difficult for us was to leave this place. Michael is a cultured person, very kind: you could spend hours chatting with him about life. You should really consider satying here if you want to have a break, to quit for a while the turmoil of the urban way of life.

This was a wonderful airbnb experience. Michael was so welcoming, greeting us on a rainy afternoon with coffee, cake and fruit. His home is in the most glorious location imaginable and the conservatory is a perfect place to watch the light changing on the Atlantic. Our room was very comfortable - beautiful bed linen, plenty of towels and open hanging space - and also had fantastic views. Michael had to leave for Dublin after our first day, and we greatly appreciated the trust he showed us in allowing us to stay alone in his home for the remainder of our stay. Four nights was not long enough to enjoy the tranquillity of the setting, and the beauty of County Donegal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Michael on the stunning St. John's point. Michael was a most gracious and generous host and a great cook to boot. Love the breakfast!

So that's me on the right hand side, Demelza on he left. It's my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) picture too. She is the elder daughter and you'll probably hear them before you see them ! An absolute joy, I spend a lot of time with them love walking with them or without them in the hills around. I also love gardening , a few flowers and a little veg. Like to cook love to eat. Very interested on local history and archaeology. I have taught English as a foreign language and tuition is available if required. I speak a little Italian and some school French but language should never be a barrier to communiction.
