My wife and I stayed at this residence for the May bank holiday weekend 2016. We were late in arriving by over two hours but were still met personally by the property manager and delivered safely to this lovely home. It is remote and quiet, essentially on a expansive North Atlantic beach which is quite empty. Exactly what we wanted. Nobody disturbed us during the whole weekend and scarcely a car passed the house. The total indigenous population of Doohey is some 30 homes.
The house was provided with gifts of food essentials, fruit and a bottle of wine. It was preheated for our arrival and very clean. The house itself if only built two years and finished to a high standard. Everything we needed in the the kitchen, living rooms and bedrooms was there and functioned well. Very pleased indeed.
What I liked the most about Donegal are the people. Just to listen to their speech is music. Their welcome is sincere and very helpful. Our dealings with the owner and the property manager exemplified this and reinforces what I have always felt about Donegal and its people.

We stayed in this property for a week...we wish we stayed longer. The house is beautifully located with the view of the sea in every room. The interior of the house is built in modern luxury, yet still has the homey atmosphere...a home away from home...lots of outdoor activities for kids and teenagers. Swimming & wind surfing in a good weather. Watching the sunset and walking by the beach at night if you want a quiet evening is the best for the family...kids enjoyed bringing lanterns with them. Best location to go running and cycling...the outdoor barbeque and picnic table is a plus. Weather may not be kind all the time, but plenty of family indoor games provided.
This place is a jewel and unspoilt.
Highly recommended to visit.
I give this property a 5 star. The house is of high standard, and the owner responds quickly to any enquiry and accommodates requests if it's for the improvement of their service.
By the way, there's a wifi, but I recommend not using it unless necessary. We only used it on our last day...so we had more family quality time without it.
Thanks Mary/Mark/Catherine for the welcome bottled water and gallon of milk.
We'll definitely come back next summer...until then.
