“Amazing location and views!”
Reviewed 4 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Words cannot begin to describe the Donegal coastal views from the picture windows of this lovely cottage. The only sound is the crashing Ocean waves below. You and nature are at one and alone to enjoy each other. Rarely does a car pass to take you out of your wonderful dream. The cottage is simply furnished but that is not what you are here for, it’s the enjoyment of the simple but pleasurable things in life that has taken you here to the edge of civilization. All the things you need are here to make your stay comfortable and the host and accompanying housekeeping makes you feel welcome. Skip the big cities and enjoy a lovely view from your own private cottage. We will be back again, trust us!

“A wild atlantic way treasure”

Beautiful ocean views. This gem of a place is soaked in authentic charm and character. Dramatic Ocean views and the pleasing sounds of crashing waves. A great place for folks who like take a peaceful walks. Walking here includes being in a place with gorgeous and breathtaking scenery. The cabin is super cozy, and has a fireplace. Spend a morning driving to nearby slieve league cliffs. Peter and his crew took great care of us and are easy to work with. My family loved it and we can't wait to get back.... First time anyone in my family has been to Donegal since my great-great grandpa, Paddy Shields, left in 1850.... we waited too long! It is Beautiful

“Dream Cottage on the Ocean”
Reviewed 20 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This isolated cabin by the ocean was everthing we dreamed it would be. Peter has a special place here..go to get away on the Wild Atlantic Way. Special thanks to Kathleen for the wonderful welcome. You could spend the entire time here staring out the large picture windows in the living room or bedroom with sweeping vista views of the ocean.Build a peat fire in the stone fireplace, visit the nearby small town of Kilcar or the close by cliffs and beaches. Definitely bring your camera.

“Great Location for an active holiday”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Muckross School House is marvellously situated above the bay with an ever-changing view on the promontory, the beach and the sea; it is close to all the major walks in the region.
The house is cosy, the heating works well, the gas stove is great for cooking, and our teenager son rated access to the internet as good.
The housekeeper and the neighbours are friendly, helpful people. If only the weather had been a bit warmer... :)

“Beautiful ”
Reviewed 4 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This wee place is absolutely perfect, the first thing that got us all was how stunning the location was, one of the best views in the world. The cottage itself has everything you need, wifi, open fire, comfy chairs, nice beds, and plenty of turf to keep you warm into the wee small hours. All the ingredients for that perfect relaxing break.
