No smoking please
The house is ver good and in the quiet location. However, the gas for stove in kitchen has a problem and we could not cook well. Other than that the place is good.
It's a lovely cottage in Ballintra. The house is really beatiful, new furniture and clean.
The host was nice and hospitable. I strongly suggest this house for a holiday in Donegal.
