The Avish Cottage was perfect for us. The cottage was comfortable on the inside and beautiful views around. And quiet. Easy access to all sites. The owner was especially gracious as was her brother.
This old farm property is close to Derry and an ideal base for touring. It has been expertly and sympathetically restored with beautiful and interesting authentic objects and decor. Absolutely everything we needed was there, including sticky tape! The house was warm and well-heated with an eco-pellet heater plus option for slow combustion stove in the lounge room with wood from the farm.The owners Ann and Robert were great at communication and Robert even met us to show us the way through the Irish lanes when we arrived. Will definitely recommend for a genuine Irish welcome and an authentic cottage experience! Derry itself is also so welcoming of tourists and is a fascinating city.
Loved everything about the Avish Cottage! Beautifully decorated, everything you could've needed was right there waiting for your use both inside and out! Loved the outdoor seating area surrounded by lovely flowers & veggies! I would definitely stay here again! Thank you to Robert for all his thoughtful help, loved looking at the photo albums of the property restore, amazing job done
Comfortable, well equipped cottage in beautiful countryside with views over the valley and of the hills of Donegal beyond. Quiet and secluded, yet so convenient for the city and the sights. Lots of great finishing touches, including a welcome basket full of goodies. We found something new every day - a picture, an embroidery, an elegant piece of pottery and so on. It was interesting to read about the renovation of the cottage - it sounded daunting! A very kind welcome and ongoing TLC from Robert and helpful information prior to our trip from Ann - both of which were greatly appreciated. Thank you both!
We enjoyed our holiday very much - we were sorry to leave and could have happily stayed on - the fantastic weather probably wouldn't have continued though.
I'd recommend Avish cottage as an excellent holiday rental - I'd be very happy to return in an instant!
Very much straight out of the holiday magazine ... Beautiful well restored irish farmhouse property... as my title suggests don't stay here if you suffer from cottage envy ... you will want to wrap it up and take it with you.. This is the second time we have stayed at Avish ... a very relaxing break both times.
