“Cozy and comfortable”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

For years our beautiful holiday home in Donegal. Then we come home. The house is well equipped. We enjoy the open fire with peat fire. The owner, comes from a respected Donegal family and it makes pleasure to meet him. You come as a stranger and go as a friend. Thanks to Garreth Browne and his family - God bless you

“Great long weekend, highly recommended rental”

We stayed at Rosswood house as a group of 6 (3 couples) over a long weekend. The house was large and really spacious and suited us all perfectly. The place was spotless and you could tell there was great attention to detail from the owner Gareth to ensure we were comfortable and well catered for. We spent one of the evenings indoors and watched a film from the great collection of DVDs provided. There was Sky TV as well but the movie collection was enough for us. Wifi was fast and worked great throughout the house also.

Myself and my partner stayed in the main bedroom which had an en-suite which was a nice touch. The bedroom was really comfy and neither of us had a single complaint.

Location-wise the house is in a really lovely and scenic area with great views. It was a short hop from Donegal town where we went out 2 of the nights for dinner and drinks and really enjoyed ourselves and loved the town. It's a real and much needed breath of fresh air away from the city! We took a drive to Glenveagh National Park on one of the afternoons and it was absolutely stunning and a nice but not too challenging hike. I'd recommend it if you wanted to venture further north!

Our host Gareth was so friendly and helpful and was always available should we need any local knowledge or info on the house. I had met Gareth before when I stayed in his other property with friends previously and he was very easy to get along with and helpful which was part of the reason I specifically chose to stay here, knowing he'd make sure we were looked after.

I'd highly recommend this property to a group looking for a weekend away. It hands down beats staying in a hotel as you feel like you have your own place during your stay and it's very homely whereas hotels tend to be a little more staid with no character I feel. I also recommend Donegal in general as it's in my opinion one of our most scenic counties and is definitely worth the trek!

Just back from a lovely stay at rosswood house. The house is amazing! So spacious and clean. There was 9 of us although there was abit of a mix up about how many guests were staying when I filled out the booking form I accidentally put down 2 guests instead of 9 and the owner then informed me that the house price is based on per person not per night so be sure to put the right number of guests on your form as the owner said he does not accept large groups. There arnt any towels provided so bring your own, the owner was nice enough to bring us some when we asked. The views from the house are amazing and its only a 5 minute drive to the town. Unfortunately it rained all weekend we were there but it did not stop us walking around the grounds of the house to admire the view. I would highly recommend this house, you wont be disappointed.

We stayed here for a friends wedding and can't say we had any complaints. The view was stunning, the bedrooms were clean and spacious, Gareth was friendly and helpful and the location was perfect for what we needed. A ten minute car journey into Donegal Town.
