My girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere to spend a night away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas before the festivities got into full swing and I came across Tailor's Cottage on TripAdvisor - it didn't disappoint.

The cottage is surprisingly easy to find, nestled on a hillside in northern Donegal with a spectacular view of the sweeping landscape beyond. Inside, it's tastefully decorated and very tidy with all modern cons, yet doesn't lose any of its rustic charm. The kitchen is well-stocked with utensils and everything else you'll need to cook dinner; the living room features a good tv mounted above a brilliant turf fire, which kept us toasty on our cold December night there (just don't let it go out, it's hard to relight!); the bedrooms are themed and very comfortable - there's even a playstation, DVD player and plenty of board games to keep you busy.

For us, just spending a night in front of a roaring fire watching movies after a huge meal with the wind howling around the house was just what we were looking for. To top it all off, the owner (Kathleen) had stocked the fridge with milk, butter and orange juice, and had supplied croissants with jam and marmalade and a nice bottle of wine. She also decorated the cottage for Christmas, which was a great touch.

All in all, we had a brilliant night there and will definitely be back again. I can highly recommend Tailor's Cottage, particularly for those looking for a bit of isolation and privacy. Go in winter.
